How to Move Files Between Storage Account and Linux (Ubuntu) VM?

I am looking for basic instructions as to how to moves files back and forth between Storage Account (blob storage) and a Linux (ubuntu) VM.

I tried working through this:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/active-directory/managed-identities-azure-resources/tutorial-linux-vm-access-storage

I was not able to get past: Grant your VM access to an Azure Storage container - there was no Resource Group field for me to complete.

Would be grateful for some advice.

Hello @DarrellKent-0398 ,
How about installing Azure storage explorer in Linux machine and use it for file transfer?

Do I need to do this every time I boot up the Linux VM? I would prefer something that I set up just the one time.

Storage explorer is an application that can be installed permanent in your Linux VM and can connect to Azure with your account. So, set up one time and use as and when needed until you remove the program.

Thanks,

Just to make sure - I am referring here to an Azure Linux VM. Is the above still the suggested approach?
