  1. Deployed resources inherit permissions from DevTest lab

    When deploying a resource in a DevTest lab, the permissions applied to the resource groups and resources should be inherited from the DevTest lab (as well as from the subscription).
    The permission inheritance flow/hierarchy should be Subscription, then DevTest lab.

  2. Ability to directly change VM ownership

    Please add a direct way to change ownership of DevTest Lab VMs. The only supported way for now is unclaiming it first, then claiming it by another user. It's possible for other users to intercept VMs in unclaimed state.

    We need this feature because we automate creating VMs in DevTest Labs shared by users using service principal. In the final step of the autonation, we have to change the ownership from the service principal to a designated user.

  3. Automatic Storage Account creation should allow parameters to meet Azure Policy Requirements

    At the moment DevTest Labs deployment will fail when Azure Policy "Storage account public access should be disallowed" is set to Deny. This is a policy that is "endorsed" by Azure Security Center.

    There should be a means in DevTest Labs ARM template to specify that Storage Account is created without public access.

  4. Toggle for reader/owner role on lab level for creating a VM

    When you create a VM the creator gets the reader role on the resource group and owner role on the VM. This is not needed

  5. Windows 10 Mandatory Profiles

    I wanted to see if it is possible for Azure Lab Services Win10 Image to have Mandatory profiles, so when user logs off, nothing is saved to the desktop, clean profile at next login.

  6. Lab/user policy to deny claiming/unclaiming VMs

    Please add the ability to completely disable claimable VMs in DevTest Labs. The feature is abused to generate tons of unclaimed VMs in the lab under VMs-per-user policy.
