      Our finance team keep missing support plan invoices as they are not emailed and find it frustrating to have to remember how to access. Also it can only be the Billing owner? So no option to delegate!

        Hi folks,

        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.

        Thanks,

        Will Gries
        Program Manager, Azure Files

          Really love this idea. As an organisation (50 users) we would prefer to endpoint our remote worker VPN's into our Virtual Network in Azure so that we can rely less on our on premises infrastructure. Currently we are using an OpenVPN server on premises, connectivity to Azure resources are provided by the Site to Site VPN, so that part of the puzzle is in place anyway.

          What I'd like to see is that each client uses the same certificate as the first form of auth and the second is username and password which authenticates against either a Domain Controller (AD) or Azure Active Directory. Managing Certificates on a per user basis is not scale-able for us so we can't use the Point to Site VPN service as is today.
