Azure – Azure AD authentication available in preview for Azure Files

You may already know Azure Files service allowing you to use Azure as files ‘server’ and off course Azure AD to manage authentication to your Microsoft cloud services (Azure and/or Office 365).

Well, good news, you can use Azure AD to leverage authentication to access Azure Files; meaning you can set NTFS like permissions on Azure Files. Off course the existing storage account key process is still supported and available.

Set-AzureRmStorageAccount –ResourceGroupName -Name -EnableAzureFilesAadIntegrationForSMB $true

Then you can set the NTFS permissions using iCacls or Set-Acl command after having mounted the Azure File share
