Hi folks,

How can I create or give the users additional permissions on my Storage Account SMB File share Read and Download access only?

I have assigned them access at the Resource Group and Storage Account level but it does not allow them to read and download the files under that SMB file share using the Storage Browser like below:

View all resources, but does not allow you to make any changes.
This resource
Reader and Data Access
Lets you view everything but will not let you delete or create a storage account or contained resource. It will also allow read/write access to all data contained in a storage account via access to storage account keys.
Parent resource (Inherited)
Storage File Data Privileged Reader
The customer has read access to Azure Storage file shares.
Parent resource (Inherited)
Storage File Data SMB Share Reader
Allows for read access to Azure File Share over SMB

Do I need to create a specific custom rule?

    Please assign the users Storage File Data SMB Share Reader role to the users at the scope of the file share (or at higher scope) and then test again.
