few users can access read access, few users can have write access, few users should not have access to blob containers.

    You can assign various Azure role for access to blob data. When an Azure role is assigned to an Azure AD security principal, Azure grants access to those resources for that security principal. An Azure AD security principal may be a user, a group, an application service principal, or a managed identity for Azure resources.

    To access blob data in the Azure portal with Azure AD credentials, a user must have the following role assignments:

    • A data access role, such as Storage Blob Data Reader or Storage Blob Data Contributor
    • The Azure Resource Manager Reader role, at a minimum

    Select 'Add Role Assignment' as shown below and add the required role to the selected users

    @Manu Philip If the set of users was already a "Contributor" to the subscription/RG, then how can we restrict those kind of users from accessing blob containers.
