Direct connection to Storage Accounts via Azure automation is not possible without using a hybrid worker.
Currently, we cannot use the Connections strings to a storage account to connect to the Azure file share on azure automation. To access the blob/file share, we need to set up a hybrid worker and from there we can do whatever we want
This shouldn't be the case, we should be able to establish direct connection to the file share.
