Blob objects returned by list_blobs has None metadata properties

See original GitHub issue

azure-storage==0.32.0 Python 3.4.3 requests==2.10.0

If You use:

from import CloudStorageAccount
ACC = CloudStorageAccount(account_name, account_key)
SRV = ACC.create_block_blob_service()
GEN = SRV.list_blobs(container_name)
for blob in GEN:

to get list of blobs in container and their metadata, You will have:

None None None etc…

But if You use:

blob0 = SRV.get_blob_properties(container_name, blob_name)

Everything is OK:

{‘val1’: ‘foo’, ‘val2’: ‘blah’}

In both cases we have object so there should be ‘metadata’ property as in Model.

Hi @smereczynski,

List blobs by default does not return metadata unless you specify “Metadata” in the “include” parameter when calling the method. Have you tried adding this parameter to your calls?

@erezvani1529 OK. Of course it works. Is there any plan to create some reliable documentation for Python SDK?
