Reader Access Denied to Containers RRS feed

  • Question

  • I need some help giving access to a Container to two employees. I've set them both up as Readers within Access control (IAM), but when they log into their accounts and try to access the Containers they receive an access denied message. Can you offer any help?

  • If you are referring to Azure Storage container by default, the data in your storage account is accessible only to storage account owner. Authenticating requests against storage requires the account access key by default. However, you may wish to make certain data available to other users. You have two options:

    Shared access signatures: You can provide clients with a shared access signature (SAS), which provides delegated access to a resource in your storage account, with permissions that you specify and over an interval that you specify. See Shared Access Signatures: Understanding the SAS Model for more information.

    Anonymous read access to blob storage: You can make a container or its blobs publicly available for anonymous access. See Manage anonymous read access to containers and blobs for more information.
