You may already know Azure Files service allowing you to use Azure as files ‘server’ and off course Azure AD to manage authentication to your Microsoft cloud services (Azure and/or Office 365).

Well, good news, you can use Azure AD to leverage authentication to access Azure Files; meaning you can set NTFS like permissions on Azure Files. Off course the existing storage account key process is still supported and available.

Set-AzureRmStorageAccount –ResourceGroupName -Name -EnableAzureFilesAadIntegrationForSMB $true

Then you can set the NTFS permissions using iCacls or Set-Acl command after having mounted the Azure File share
