I am looking for basic instructions as to how to moves files back and forth between Storage Account (blob storage) and a Linux (ubuntu) VM.

I tried working through this:

https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/active-directory/managed-identities-azure-resources/tutorial-linux-vm-access-storage

I was not able to get past: Grant your VM access to an Azure Storage container - there was no Resource Group field for me to complete.

Would be grateful for some advice.
