You can execute the below PowerShell command that can help you to delete the storage container named “azure-webjobs-hosts” that belongs to the storage account “demorg2913f”.
$mynewsARG = "DEMORG2" $mynewsAName = "demorg2913f" $mynewsAKey = (Get-AzStorageAccountKey -ResourceGroupName $mynewsARG -AccountName $mynewsAName).Value $myuctx = New-AzStorageContext -StorageAccountName $mynewsAName -StorageAccountKey $mynewsAKey Remove-AzStorageContainer -Name "azure-webjobs-hosts" -Context $myuctx
