The table under this section https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/storage/common/storage-use-azcopy-v10#authorize-azcopy

says SAS is supported for Files

At the same time, the table under this Section https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/storage/common/authorize-data-access#understand-authorization-for-data-operations

says SAS is NOT supported for Azure Files(SMB)

Should it be supported in both places ? Or Am I missing anything ?

    Hi,

    The documentation is correct. SAS isn't supported when using SMB protocol to access Azure Files, but it is supported when using REST API to access Azure Files. AzCopy uses REST API.

    Thanks.
