Note

To allow access from virtual networks to storage accounts, Microsoft Azure uses service endpoints. If any of the selected networks do not have service endpoints enabled for Microsoft.Storage, Microsoft Azure will raise a warning. In this case, click Enable and wait for the process to complete. For more information on service endpoints, see Microsoft Docs.
