Dapr State Store resource

Learn how to use a Dapr State Store resource in Radius


A Applications.Dapr/stateStores resource represents a Dapr state store topic.

This resource will automatically create and deploy the Dapr component spec for the state store.

Resource format

resource statestore 'Applications.Dapr/stateStores@2023-10-01-preview' = {
  name: 'statestore'
  properties: {
    environment: environment

      parameters: {
        // ....

resource statestore 'Applications.Dapr/stateStores@2023-10-01-preview' = {

      { id: account::tableServices::table.id }
    metadata: {
      accountName: account.name
      accountKey: account.listKeys().keys[0].value
      tableName: account::tableServices::table.name
    type: 'state.azure.tablestorage'

Resource provisioning

Provision with a Recipe

Recipes automate infrastructure provisioning using approved templates. When no Recipe configuration is set Radius will use the Recipe registered as the default in the environment for the given resource. Otherwise, a Recipe name and parameters can optionally be set.

Provision manually

If you want to manually manage your infrastructure provisioning outside of Recipes, you can set resourceProvisioning to 'manual' and provide all necessary parameters and values and values that enable Radius to deploy or connect to the desired infrastructure.

Environment variables for connections

Other Radius resources, such as containers, may connect to a Dapr state store resource via connections. When a connection to Dapr state store named, for example, myconnection is declared, Radius injects values into environment variables that are then used to access the connected Dapr state store resource:
