Role Based user access on File Storage RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are trying create a file share on the cloud and we want to give folder ( directory ) level access to our users. This is a normally scenario in any business to have a file share and multiple folders with different user access rights on it. However, it seems File Storage will not support the role based access security on the directory level. Can anyone please guide me how to achieve the same in the cloud environment?

  • Thanks. It's very unfortunate that Microsoft is not providing directory level user access on the FILE storage.

  • Hi,

    that's currently not supported on Azure Files.

    If you need ACL then deploy a VM as file server.

  • Agreed this is needed. We reported @ Ignite that we are actively working on AD integration and ACLs.
