Azure Logic App DFS Share Monitoring

Completely new to Azure Logic Apps, my question at high level is, Can Azure Logic Apps monitor a DFS share for creation (and file modified) for specific files?

I have a file share that hosts tons of files, folders, sub directories, etc. I only care about 40 or so files. To only monitor the files that I care about, do I need 40 different logic apps, one for each file? If one logic app can monitor 40 specific files that would be great and what I would need to know. At that point I would need to dig in and learn how to do this, but is it even possible.

Monitoring the directory doesnt make sense as there are quite a few files that I dont care about and dont want those files to trigger my ADF pipeline.

Thank you to all who may respond. If more details are needed, please let me know.

    @Greg Bradley Thanks for reaching out. I have checked with my team and confirm that officially the DFS is not supported with the File System connector. If this would be a file system, then you can leverage the File System connector and add the expression in the trigger setting to monitor file as per your need.

    I am not sure if this would work but you can try to use DFS Namespaces with Azure Files and use Azure file connector to trigger the Azure file.
