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.

I have managed to get invoices emailed to me by raising a ticket with Azure support. I was told that this can be done each month. Not ideal, but this is a workaround until they are available directly. I guess that the more people who raise tickets for invoices, then the higher up the priority list this will go.
