Storage account access tier 'cool'

See original GitHub issue

Is there any way to set the access tier on a storage account object? My understanding is that there is a significant cost difference between coold and hot tier access so would like to configure the tier to reduce cost.

  let storageAcc = storageAccount {
    name "myStorageAccount" 
    sku Storage.Sku.Standard_LRS
    use_static_website contentPath "index.html"


      "apiVersion": "2019-06-01",
      "dependsOn": [],
      "kind": "StorageV2",
      "location": "uksouth",
      "name": "myStorageAccount",
      "properties": {},
      "sku": {
        "name": "Standard_LRS"
      "type": "Microsoft.Storage/storageAccounts"

I believe the difference I would like is

      "location": "uksouth",
      "name": "myStorageAccount",
-     "properties": {},
+     "properties": {
+        "accessTier": "Cool"
+     },
      "type": "Microsoft.Storage/storageAccounts"

So this is indeed the “default” tier for new blobs. Interesting. I guess it only works for StorageV2 or Blob Storage accounts.

BTW the CDN enhancements are now published as part of 1.3.0-beta1.

Do you think that adding a default_access_tier operator to the storage builder would be a good solution?
