General availability: Managed identity to connect Azure Cache for Redis to storage
Published date: 31 August, 2022
Azure Cache for Redis now supports authenticating storage account connections using managed identity. Identity is established through Azure Active Directory, and both system-assigned and user-assigned identities are supported. This allows you to establish trusted access to storage for uses including data persistence and importing/exporting cache data. Using managed identity to connect to storage account limits the need to manage storage keys and gives you tighter and more secure control over storage account access.
