    • Artifact reordering in formula

      Implement a way to drag and drop or simply reorder artifacts when applying a list of them or when applying a new artifact but it needs to be added earlier in the artifact list. Rather than deleting all of the artifacts and recreating them have the ability to reorder or drop in place.

                • Love that vm will post a notification to an URL before shutting down.

                  But the URL should be able to return something to confirm or disable the shutdown, like the links in the email one receives.

                        Why does it take too long to install artifacts from your public artifacts repo? Is this a consequence of the VM size I created?

                          We notice that the VNET ResourceId has been removed from the VNET properties blade. We use the ResourceId as one of the parameters for DTLab creation. There is a workaround to obtain the ResourceId but it takes longer and time consuming.

                          • Custom auto start time per VM

                            We would like to be able to specify an auto start time for individual VMs similar to how we can pick an auto shutdown time. Currently the auto start time appears to be global for the Lab though I can allow individual VMs to opt in.

                            • Better ARM template support for configuration and policy settings

                              I want to completely deploy a DevTest Lab environment from a CI/CD pipeline hosted by Azure DevOps. To do this I am writing an ARM template based on the info of REST API, the sample scripts from the documentation and the info you can get from Resource Explorer.

                              I cannot find the setting which is controling the Lab settings section from the Configuration and policies part of Lab Management. The option I am looking for is the environment access setting 'Resource group user rights'. In the UI you can set this from reader to contributor. This option is not available…

                              • Option for auto-shutdown to be trigger only once.

                                Auto-shutdown is recurring. Would be nice to have an option to triggered it only once. Otherwise, every time we re-start the VM, we have to remember to disable the auto-shutdown.

                                  • Copying custom images from one DTLab to another

                                    Due to the RBAC role hard limit of 2000 per subscription, we find ourselves creating new subscription and new DTLabs as a work around. There is not a straight forward way for us to copy custom images created in the old DTLabs to the new ones. It would be nice if there is a way to just copy custom images without going through multiple steps of spinning up a new VM and sysprep it and turn it back to a VHD image again, just so we can copy it to the new DTLab.
