download documents

Hi all,
if I wanted to make available documents, classified in folders, which some in turn will have other folders with pdf/jpg/txt or other inside for some of my customers, what is the optimal solution on Azure?
I would like to create my folder tree with documents inside, decide for each client which folder can see and download internal files.
Each access must be managed by credentials, which I will give to the customer, there will be about fifty in all.
can you suggest me the correct way?
I don't need the registration form, I create the customers on azure and give them the credentials

    @Andy R Welcome to Microsoft Q&A, Thank you for posting your query!

    • You can use Azure File service in your scenario. Azure Files offers fully managed file shares in the cloud that are accessible via the industry-standard Server Message Block (SMB) protocol and the Network File System (NFS) protocol (preview). You can mount Azure file shares concurrently on cloud or on-premises deployments of Windows, Linux, and macOS. You also can cache Azure file shares on Windows Server machines by using Azure File Sync for fast access close to where the data is used.

    To learn more about the scenarios that Azure Files can help you with, see Why Azure Files is useful.

    Azure files uses different types of authentication (AAD, Shared Key, RBAC) , see here for detailed information on authorizing access to data in Azure Storage

    Refer here Security, authentication, and access control:

    Hi Sumarigo,
    in my Azure account I created a subscription for one of my customer.
    So, I see my subscription and that of my customer.
    Under my client's subscription I have created a Storage File.
    Now, I would like to create some users, linked only to my client's subscription, in order to have them read access to these files.

    do you think this is possible?

    thank you very much
