Azure Databricks - Access via Credentials Passthrough

When Clusters in the Workspace are configured to for "Credentials Passthrough", the users of the cluster can access the ADLS GenV2 Storage Account he has access to. Which is good since we dont have to provision anything else for him/her to access datalake data but at the same time it is a problem since the user can access any Storage Accounts that the user has access to.

So, given a cluster, how do we ensure that the user has access to only certain Storage Accounts via the cluster even though the user might have access to lot of other storage accounts as well?

    Hello @Gopinath Rajee ,

    Thanks for the question and using MS Q&A platform.

    You'd have to block access to those storage accounts via networking rules.

    If I have permissions to storage, and a machine that can access it. I guess I'm not even sure this is a problem, what's the point of being able to access storage only through certain machines?

    Hope this will help. Please let us know if any further queries.
