Hi all

I am trying to access Azure file share from my function app. like accessing the network share

\<fileshare_name>.file.core.windows.net\emailqueuefileshare\development\aaa.png

It gives error "Access to the path is denied " error. Storage account is created in same resources group.

Further I am required to access file shares from other accounts as well.

Kindly let me know the approach that I should follow to achieve this

Thanks
Nuwan

    To use Azure fileshare from your function, you can configure the Azure Storage Connection sTring.

    Refer: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/storage/common/storage-configure-connection-string

    Once you configure the connectionstring for your fileshare, refer the following tutorial that tells you how to access the file share from a .Net application.

    https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/storage/files/storage-dotnet-how-to-use-files?tabs=dotnet#access-the-file-share-programmatically

    Hope this helps
