Hello everyone.

We have decided to phase out the Mixed Reality Forums over the next few months in favor of other ways to connect with us.

The first way we want to connect with you is our mixed reality developer program, which you can sign up for at https://aka.ms/IWantMR.

The plan between now and the beginning of May is to clean up old, unanswered questions that are no longer relevant. The forums will remain open and usable.

On May 1st we will be locking the forums to new posts and replies. They will remain available for another three months for the purposes of searching them, and then they will be closed altogether on August 1st.

So, where does that leave our awesome community to ask questions? Well, there are a few places we want to engage with you. For technical questions, please use Stack Overflow, and tag your questions using either hololens or windows-mixed-reality. If you want to join in discussions, please do so in the HoloDevelopers Slack, which you can join by going to https://aka.ms/holodevelopers. And always feel free to hit us up on Twitter @MxdRealityDev.

Authentication in HoloLens with Azure DB

We recently created a small API REST with Azure and connected it to Unity, in order to retrieve the files from a blob storage container (images, video, pdf...) and deploy it through the HoloLens. I was based on the video from Steve Taylor in youtube:

However, since we have compromising documents we wanted to privatize the API REST, and there is where we are experiencing some issues. We want to change the Blob Storage with a Private access policy, and then with Azure Functions write the key access to allow the Unity application to open the files.

This is the code I wrote down for the GET function in Azure:

using System.Net;

public static HttpResponseMessage Run(HttpRequestMessage req, TraceWriter log, IEnumerable assets)
return req.CreateResponse(HttpStatusCode.OK, assets);

We were thinking about the possibility of using Key Vault from Azure, but we neither know if this tool could provide us what we need.

Did anyone try to create a similar authentication protocol? If so, could you please provide us with some insight on how to do it?

Thanks in advance
