How to provide access to outside user (i.e. anon@user ) for specific blobstorage container

Milind 41 Reputation points


I have added user " Users -> New User ->Invite user" The user who is an outside user with email id "<abc>@Stuff .com".

He received email for accept invitation and he can logged into azure portal.

Now, I wanted to provide him access to a storage account for a specific container.

For Ex. "MyStorageAccount -> MyContainer1"

So that I can allow him to upload files from his end, he can add/edit/delete files on this specific container.

Please help me with the detailed steps to configure these settings.

Thank you,

    Thanks for your question. Since you have added the account as a guest user you should be able to assign roles to the user scoped to the container level. This is covered through our documentation Authorize access to blobs using Azure Active Directory. If the user needs access to the container through the portal you will need to assign the Reader role scoped to the storage account. Alternatively you can have the user access the container through Storage Explorer. This blog walks through setting up access through Storage Explorer.

    Hope this helps! Let me know if you have further questions or need further assistance.
