We recently announce the General Availability of Azure Active Directory Domain Services (Azure AD DS) authentication for Azure Files! By enabling integration with Azure AD DS, you can mount your Azure file share over SMB using Azure AD credentials from Azure AD DS domain joined Windows VMs with NTFS ACLs enforced. For more details, please refer to our blog post:http://aka.ms/azure-file-aadds-authentication-ga-blog.
A part of the GA announcement, we shared the upcoming plan to extend the authentication support to Active Directory (AD) either hosted on-premises or in cloud. If you need an Azure Files solution with AD authentication today, you can consider installing Azure File Sync (AFS) on your Windows File Servers where AD integration is fully supported.
If you are interested to hear future updates on Azure Files Active Directory Authentication, please complete this sign-up survey:https://aka.ms/AzureFilesADAuthPreviewSurvey.

This remains on our long-term backlog as something we want to offer.

I have same issue.
In some case, it takes 30 minutes more to be effected.
I'm hoping to improve this behavior.
Custom tags and service tags for Azure public services have been included in our planning. NSG rule grouping has been delivered. Custom tags for explicit IPs is a roadmap item for now.
Thanks for the feedback. We do plan to improve the performance and scale of Azure VPN gateways. We will provide more updates once we have concrete plans and measurements.
Thank you for your feedback. Providing static or reserved IP addresses for storage accounts is on our backlog but there is no ETA we can share at this time. We will provide updates when they become available. For any further questions, or to discuss your specific scenario, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
