Manage stored access policies for storage accounts from within the Azure portal

Published date: September 05, 2017

You can now manage the stored access policies for your storage accounts from within the Azure portal.

Shared access signatures (SAS) enable restricted access to entities within a storage account. A stored access policy provides additional control over service-level SAS on the server side. Establishing a stored access policy serves to group shared access signatures and to provide additional restrictions for signatures that are bound by the policy. You can use a stored access policy to change the start time, expiry time, or permissions for a signature, or to revoke it after it has been issued.
