Storage Account Blob Access via role based permissions for Cloud Service (Extended Support)

christian 0 Reputation points

We are trying to migrate away from using keys to access our blob storage for an Azure hosted web application that is using Cloud Services (Extended Support). We want to use the Microsoft recommended approach of Role Based access via Entra Id.

We have updated our application to use the Azure.Storage.Blobs dll with DefaultAzureCredential.

Accessing our document storage from visual studio using our developer credentials is working great.

I am not understanding how to enable a managed identity for the application running on Cloud Service (Extended Support)? Access is working if I run the application as an App Service, but we wanted to be able to keep the application as a Cloud Service (extended support).

How do I enable a managed identity for Cloud Service (extended support)?

    Hello christian

    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A Platform, thanks for posting your query here.

    I just checked with internal team on this ask and Cloud Service Extended Support does not support managed identity, you could use SubjectName+Issuer authentication instead.

    Hope this helps.
