9/17/2019 Storage Preview Features Today we are launching a preview for a new kind of SAS token, user delegation SAS tokens. By extending the recent release of Azure AD and Azure role-based access control (RBAC) for Azure Storage, lower-privileged users and services can now delegate subsets of their access to clients, using this new type of pre-authorized URL. Clients retrieve a user delegation key tied to their Azure Active Directory (AD) account, and then use it to create SAS tokens granting a subset of their own access rights. This means, for example, that an application component with only read access to end-user content could be configured to issue short lived read-only URLs to clients without the risks involved with storing and using the powerful account access key. Azure Storage access logs will also reflect client use of these SAS tokens as associated with the Azure AD principal of this application component. Link Link Details
9/17/2019 Analysis Services Updated Features Synchronization of query replicas in Azure Analysis Services scale-out environments now uses an optimized copy API, which significantly reduces synchronization time on average. The new behavior applies to synchronization operations by default. Scale-out in Azure Analysis Services enables client query distribution across query replicas, reducing response times for high-concurrency workloads. Query replica synchronization copies the data files to a blob storage location dedicated to the query replica instances (separate from the primary-instance location). Link Link Details
