Azure File Share Mapping

I am trying to map an Azure File share onto a Windows 10 PC. I have created Azure Active Directory users for this. I have tried to manually map the drive and when it asks for the credentials it doesn't accept them. I have joined the PC to the domain, logged in as the Azure AD user and it will still not map. I tried to use the script provided from the Azure Portal and I get PS-Drive: Incorrect network password credential. Any ideas?

    Hi @Jorgen Bois
    Azure file share can be accessed via the full UNC path of the file share, it cannot be reached by the drive mapping. When logged in as an interactive user.
