download file for supplier

New Contributor

Hi everybody,
a my customer would like to make available to his suppliers some documents, classified in folders with the name of the supplier, to be able to download them.


Basically:
create the folder tree with the documents inside, decide for each supplier which folder can see and download the internal files.
Each access must be managed by credentials.

 

I am looking for the most correct way to do it.
I saw that with Azure File you could do something like this, but I don't know if:
- I use my Azure account and use my tenant
- I use my Azure account and create a new tenant to make my customer work with his suppliers.
- I create an Azure account for my customer and manage everything from there

 

What do you advise me to do?

It is a service that I would like to create and resell to my customer.

thank you

Hi the best way to deal with this kind of need  is Sharepoint Online

However if you want to do it in Azure you can  leverage azure Files identity-based authentication
