Unhappy Is this the way to mount?

Hi everyone,
I am trying to mount my Azure cloud storage to a fuse mountpoint.I was struggling with it for sometime. I ended up creating a fuse mount by creating a directory called /temp and adding this entry to /etc/fstab:
/dev/fuse /temp auto rw,nouser,noauto,exec 0 0

Now if i enter command mount. This is a line in that list :

/dev/fuse on /temp type fuse (rw,nosuid,nodev)

Does that mean, the mountpoint is created the right way? I am not sure. My code is not working , so im trying to rule out some of my options. Thanks !

I use fuse/sshfs to mount remote directories so I may be able to help. However, I need more information.

What is an "Azure cloud storage"? What services is it running (fuse can be used in many different ways)?

I use fuse to mount a remote directory using sshfs. This is only accessible by the user that mounted the directory - not even root can see the remote directory.

Perhaps this might be why your code is not working, if you have mounted as one user and trying to access as another user.
