The container's permissions encompass two types of access settings for the container:
The container's public access setting, represented by the PublicAccess property. The public access setting indicates whether the container and its blobs can be read via an anonymous request.
The container's access policies, represented by the SharedAccessPolicies property. This setting references a collection of shared access policies for the container. A shared access policy may be used to control the start time, expiry time, and permissions for one or more shared access signatures. A shared access signature provides delegated access to the container's resources.
