Do Azure Function Private Endpoints Require Creating new storage accounts? Or can they be converted?

Hi all,

I have a customer looking to move Azure Functions (that already exist) to being accessed via private endpoints.

Per this section of an article on the subject:

Your virtual networks will need a storage account that's separate from the one you created with your function app.

Can you please confirm that this means that the existing storage account cannot be "converted" and instead a new account must be created? If so, can you please help me understand why?

Once this question is answered, I'm happy to submit a pull request to the docs to clarify it.

It can be converted- though the default Functions deployment created a v1 storage account, once I upgraded it to v2 I was able to complete the rest of the tutorial. While in the process of converting the storage account/function app it will be offline, but that's not necessarily an issue for a brand new app. I'm going to assign the github thread to the doc author- some of the screenshots appear to be out of date.
