ACL's for AzureFiles
I've started experimenting with Azure Files. One of the features I'm lacking is the fact that you cannot give access to Folders/Files on AzureFiles based on Active Directory credentials. If you setup a typical fileshare one would like to be able to grant/revoke access to folders and files based on information of users in AD.
Thank you all for the feedback! This is something we are actively developing, and hope to rolling out in a preview in the first half of this year! Stay tuned for more information!

This will be a great feature once AD integration and ACLs are added. Until then... it's basically useless.
We don't even have a real console yet to Azure VM's. Why should we expect AD integration in AzureFiles anytime soon.
Yeah this comment is meant to slice open a wound and pour acid in it. Doesn't MS have Billions of dollars to implement this ****?
this is stopping me too, 150TB of file data sat wanting to be moved. problem is due to SAN renewals we may move away from trying to do this
We were expecting something beginning of May with the release of AZ FilesSync, when are we going to see some action?

Any further update on the timeline for this please? Azure files is looking like the solution for our need but access control using AAD accounts is needed to make this a solution.
When is the release date. Customer is not accepting without this feature.

Any more information on a date for release yet? Without this feature several of my customers won't go near Azure file shares. Wasted revenue opportunities.
Still waiting for this core feature for Azure file hosting - a key part of any security strategy.
"Azure File Sync is an effective stop-gap option until full support for Active Directory-based authentication and ACL support arrives."
+1 Waiting for this.
Need to support Azure B2C AD. (and OAuth in general)

This should be a core feature of Azure File Share.
Gary Bond commented
Any update on when this might become available?
Last update from MS is June 25 2015 it's on the backlog.
Any update on this? it’s a critical feature that everyone is waiting for..
Damien J. commented
We look forward to these features .

Now Azure Active Directory is perfectly launch can we hope this feature will be really planned? It's a very important and interesting for most of our customers.
Ravi Patil commented
We have so many customers looking for storage with user access policies. Following features required. File versioning, file modifying/deletion logs (Ex: which user modified files).

Yep.. Move it up! AD integration should have been on the top of the list. If I cannot assign permissions to files and directories in a file storage resource using AD credentials. The resource is useless.
763 votes and this has been open for approx 3.5 years.
Can we have a "real" update on this ? i.e. 3.5 year delay seems like its not going to happen and the current status of "planned" is not correct.
This would be awesome! Azure files shouldn't have left preview without it.

I would highly recommend that Microsoft raise the priority of this functionality. This is very much preventing us from furthering our research into using Azure active directory. Without proper and adult access controls on file shares, this is not even a remotely viable option. Meaning migrating from premise active directory to AAD is a non-starter until we begin to see proper security controls, patch management and access controls on files.
