    • Auto Shut Down Notification Should go the user logged in to the server or user using Azure Portal

      Auto Shut Down Notification Should go the user logged in to the server, it would be good to add Pop before couple of minutes in azure portal to notify the user.

        • Do not use an existing IP address range already in use for a VNet when creating the VNet of a new lab

          If you create a new lab it will create a new VNet with the ip range 10.0.0.0 even though that range is already in use in anothe VNet in the subscription.
          It would be nice to use a different available range, ask the user to define a new one or at least let the user aknowledge this and create it anyway

              • what all Pass offering we can manage from DevTestLab

                Is there anyway that we can configure any existing Azure Pass service as part of artifact and we can use on demand as part of Pass Offering.

                  • cannot diable auto shutdown on Linux machines

                    And this is really bad, I want to use one of those machines for running tests, and I need it to be on all the time. When trying to opt out of auto-shutdown, the button is grayed out and it doesn't let me.

                        • Missing property WebhookUrl when setting auto-shutdown notifications

                          If I try to set auto-shutdown notification by email only appear the error "MissingRequiredProperty Missing required property WebhookUrl."

                          But it said that at least one should be filled which for me is enough with the email.

                                    • A way to create a new DevTest VM using a formula from Release Managment

                                      I love how formula's work in the DevTestLab and so easy to make adjustments to the formula as you need them. I like the fact that these are always the latest bits. However, right now this only seems to work if I manually set one up what would be really nice is being able to call this formula from a Build Task to create this vm on the fly just before I deploy my application to it in the release pipeline.

                                      • Auto-shutdown not working reliably.

                                        Most days, my two Linux Vms shut down automatically at 7 PM (as configured), but some days not. This happens to me about once a week. The Activity log doesn't show any errors or attempts at "deallocating". I kind of suspect that this failure to shutdown happens only after the machines have been deallocated for a couple days, and then turned on. If there's somewhere else (besides the Activity log) that I should look for errors, please let me know.

                                        • Auto Shutdown warning

                                          Change it so it initiates the windows shutdown command with a delay and notification on it; eg shutdown /s /t 900 /c "Azure Auto Shutdown"

                                          Then if you are actively using the machine the user will be warned (a popup will appear) AND the user have the option to cancel the shutdown ("shutdown /a").

                                          Also having the ability to send an email notification would be helpful.
