Thank you all for the feedback! This is something we are actively developing, and hope to rolling out in a preview in the first half of this year! Stay tuned for more information!

Is there any chance we can get a revised estimate on when AD integration will be available for Azure Files? We have several clients that need the facility offered by this service, but without the ability to access based on user identity, we cannot move towards deployment. Any status you can offer would be greatly appreciated.
