Permissions on Azure App Service
Problem reported by Ryan - 2/6/2020 at 2:52 AM
Keep getting the following error on Azure App Service.

Access to the path "[91744.1.USI]:\" is denied due to insufficient permissions. Please make sure the current windows identity "IIS APPPOOL\augerfiles (Impersonation)" has the required permissions on the path. 

Works fine everywhere else, but in Azure. Can anyone provide any advice?

I have the exact same issue as well. It works without issue on a local in connecting to the Azure file share. But as soon as it goes to the azure app service this issue occurs.

Have you managed to resolve this?

This is a restriction of Azure App Service, it does not allow to access Azure Files as SMB share out of the box:

However it may be possible to mount the file share:

In the Web App, under Application Settings you will find Mount storage (Preview) section where you can mount Storage account. 

But this feature may be supported for Linux Web Apps and Windows Containers Web Apps only (not for Windows Web Apps, if they still didn't update this feature).
