Directory/File level security in Azure Storage V2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have created a Storage account V2 and enabled Data Lake Storage Gen2.

    Please find the details of configuration below:

    Account Kind: StorageV2 (general purpose v2)

    Performance: Standard

    Access tier: Cool

    Replication: RA-GRS

    Azure Active Directory authentication: Enabled

    Data Lake Storage Gen2: Enabled

    Now, I am trying to give access to only particular folder in a filesystem to a particular AD account using Storage Explorer.

    Is it possible, at the first place?

    I tried to add the account in ACL, but got the following error:

    Unable to find user with UPN <userid>

    The user is Guest in the Directory.

    Am I missing out on something?

Answers

  • Are you using the latest version of Azure Storage Explore? The version should be 1.8.0.  If you use the Microsoft Graph Explorer to lookup the user by UPN, are you able to find them in the directory?

    If you use Azure PowerShell are you able to find the user by UPN? See: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powershell/module/azuread/get-azureaduser?view=azureadps-2.0

    Kindly let us know if the above helps or you need further assistance on this issue.

  • Hi Poorva,

    I've never tried this but if you can send me a screenshot of the part of storage explorer you're trying this on and the error then I have a platform that I can use to test this if that would help?

    Thanks,

    Matt
