Azure Policy: Use policy to limit options surfaced in portal
If my policy only allows D series VMs, then when I get to the SKU selection blade during VM creation or resize, I should only see the allowed options.
I agree with this suggestion. I'm running into the same issue with the machine SKU and Datacenter locations. The user should not have to find out at the very end of trying to deploy a machine, that it is not available. At the minimum, it should be greyed out.
