  1. Ability to use shared image gallery in Formula

    We need the ability to be able to use a shared image as a base in a formula. Currently we can build a VM from a shared image within the devtestlab but shared image gallery images do not show up as a image you can use in a formula.

  2. Auto-refresh vm creation view

    The UI does not auto refresh itself to update the status of resources that are being created, so the only way to check if the status a resource has changed is to manually refresh the browser. Please can the view be automatically updated.

  3. DevTest Labs should honor "Exclude from latest" flag of SIG versions

    On creating DevTest Labs VMs, choosing "Latest" image version from a shared image gallery definition is actually end up using the version last added to it, regardless of "Exclude from latest" flag of that version.

    This behavior is quite inconvenient when we need to test versions in development for DevTest Labs. Please honor "Exclude from latest" flag of versions, just like it does for ordinary VMs outside Labs.

  4. Notifications for custom image creation

    We are using Image factory process to create custom images on daily basis. So daily we get into devtest labs and then checking whether images are created or not. So is there any activity log alert or OMS alert to get notified once the images are copied to respective labs ?

  5. Allow DevTest Lab owners to connect to read-only shared image galleries

    Currently a DevTest Lab owner needs to have contributor level access to a shared image gallery in order to have it listed as available for connection to the lab. This may have been with the thought that a lab owner would create the lab's images, but in many cases someone else will provide standard images. Allow galleries to appear for connection to the lab if the lab owner has Reader access to the gallery.
