    Thank you for your feedback! As we work to get Azure Files to parity with Windows File Server, we absolutely agree this functionality is required. For now, I’m leaving this item open so we can collect feedback on it – please vote for it to help us prioritize it!

    Thanks,

        Agree this is a deal breaker for our use of Azure Files in our enterprise, as creating a GPO w/script for each file share is a serious security concern due to exposing the storage account key and the lack of ACL control. Please keep me posted if this feature becomes available.
