Providing a third party, access to azure storage container

Gautam Tandon 21 Reputation points

Hello Azure community, we have an Azure Storage Container that we want to give access to a third party with some sort of access token that is either really long lived or doesn't expire. I understand that we can create a shared access token and set its expiry to sufficiently long duration (say 10 years), and share that token with the third party. However, I believe once such access token is created, there's no way to delete it. So if it gets compromised, the only way for us to mitigate the situation would be to delete the entire container itself! Is there any other safe way of doing this?

    Hi Gautam,

    There is a way to revoke the access keys and no need to delete the entire container, I have always used the revoke feature to reset the keys and it works so no issues and there is no point of recreting the container if the process is secure so hence revoke process is tried and tested.


    Hope this helps.
