Is it Possible to get SasToken for only a Directory in file share to download all files including sub directory's files in C#?

Can I get a sasToken for a directory in File Share in Azure File Storage using REST API using C# to download all files of that directory including sub directories but that sastoken will not be valid for other directories in the same File Share. There are official documents available but I got confused that it is possible to do that by using rest api or not. So, if some one could tell me that's possible or not then it will be very helpful.

    @Sumana Haldar Firstly, apologies for the delay in responding here and any inconvenience this issue may have caused.

    It is not possible to create a SAS token to restrict access to a directory only. You can either create a SAS token for an entire share or a file but not for a directory.

    Hope this helps!

    Kindly let us know if the above helps or you need further assistance on this issue.
