- Default behaviour is the Runtime will delete the object from Blob storage when the FileDocument is deleted.
- When Runtime Setting com.mendix.storage.PerformDeleteFromStorage is set to false, it will NOT delete the object from Azure and it will stay there indefinitely (see: https://docs.mendix.com/refguide/custom-settings#2-general-settings)
- Setting com.mendix.storage.PerformDeleteFromStorage=false is the recommended setting and the default in all templates I publish (e.g. https://github.com/MXClyde/mendix-kubernetes-azure/blob/cbe6bf735d819fa1fa636a634b12f62a5331bfe9/manifests/kubernetes/kubernetes.yaml#L84). Reason being that it enables you to restore an old database backup and still have all the files available.
I assume you have configured Azure Blob Storage in Mendix, and you have not made a custom integration. Although I have no experience with this setup, I suggest the following actions:
I would like to know the process and steps for Blob storage integration within Mendix app.
Could you share please your feedback ?
