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.
We have shipped a public preview of integration with AAD DS: https://azure.microsoft.com/blog/azure-active-directory-integration-for-smb-access-now-in-public-preview/
What we have in preview is a first step along a much larger roadmap for integration with AAD/AD for authentication and authorization. As the blog post says, this initial preview is really about Windows cloud VM access to the Azure file share with an AAD identity. Future refreshes to this feature will add non-Windows (Linux, macOS, etc) support, and the ability to mount the Azure file shares on-premises with your AAD identity. You can learn more about this in our Ignite session as well (at around 22:00): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GMzh2M66E9o
We’ll keep you updated on our progress. In the meantime, don’t hesitate to continue posting feedback on this feature below.
Program Manager, Azure Files
We are building File Share on a client and need this feature to restrict access on the different File Shares. Otherwise for each access group a dedicated Storage Account needs to be created. Due to security standards, we cannot have two business critical applications sharing the same access keys and the only way to mitigate that is to create individual Storage Accounts.
+1 for this
We need this feature to ensure that when an employee leaves, they no longer have access to storage accounts.
posted almost 2 years ago.... how is this not a priority ?
Without ACL for Azure fileshares I can't use this for any kind of solution really, which is a shame because it's almost there.
We are also using Azure Files with Azure RemoteApp and are in need of ACL support.
We are using Azure Files with Azure RemoteApp and we would really like to see ACL support so we can make better use of the storage without having to create individual storage accounts to isolate data

+3. We need the same - but for Blob Service.

We are implementing azure file services for archiving data, we would like to be able to have AD integration or at least the ability for ACL's on the different shares within File Services storage
Simon Hudson commented
We were really hoping to be able to use Azure storage to replace file servers for several of our clients. To achieve this we need Active Directory integration, granular permission and the ability to migrate permissions from the existing file server to Azure file storage with the ability to remap the user identities in the process.
I.e. we may move some of the clients to a pure Azure Active Directory model where they no longer have an on premise identity, so the old identity will need to be mapped to the new one.
Please provide AD integration and ACL for Azure File Storage.

Any news on this? Integration with Azure AD is a must
+1 This feature should be supported.
Shuhei Uda commented
We need you to permit ACL feature for Azure Storage (Blob, Table, Queue, Files).
Since Azure Storage does not have source IP filtering now, it is unusable to save confidential data. (ex. personal information, payment data, security data, etc.)
Azure Storage (Blob, Table, Queue, Files) でアクセス制限を可能にしてほしい。

+1 yes yes yes

This would be great! Hope this will be implemented soon.
Teppei Ishii commented
without ACL and quota, Azure Files is only for someone who owns & administors Azure Storage account. This cannot be truely the enterprise capable solution.
Allow AzureAD User access and file permission control with the Storager > File Service > File Shares.
I want to map the file shares directly to end point systems but need to be able to set access permissions.

I would also love this as we could move our EFSS from another provider

+1 for ACL and quota implementation
