Our apologies for not updating this ask earlier. Renaming Blobs is on our backlog, but is unlikely to be released in the coming year. Today, you can use the “Copy Blob” API as a workaround.
Using the Azure Files service you can address Azure Storage like a network share using the SMB2.1 protocol. This enables usage of normal Windows API’s to rename files and directories. You can get started with the Files service by visiting https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/storage/storage-dotnet-how-to-use-files.

Thank you for you feedback. Currently we are in public preview of Azure Active Directory authentication for storage. This feature set allows you to use Azure’s role-based access control framework to grant specific permissions to users, groups and applications down to the scope of an individual blob container or queue. You can see the public preview announcement here: https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/announcing-the-preview-of-aad-authentication-for-storage/

Would love this as well. SAS tokens do not solve this scenario. I use VS as my storage explorer and would love the ability to browse in read-only mode
Thank you for your feedback. While it is unlikely we’ll address this suggestion in the near future, we’ll reassess based on the number of votes it receives.
