  2. Provide the ability to customise the Classroom Labs user Portal

    It would be great to be able to customise the User portal for the Classroom labs, maybe per classroom lab basis, where we can establish a nice workshop title banner, do custom branding etc.

  3. 'My Labs' Dashboard cards should display more information

    The dashboard cards in labs only contains minimum information on the e.g.

    LAB-TITLE
    lab description
    Max virtual machine count: 52
    Quota per user: 0 hours (Schedule only)

    it does not even list the Lab Creator anywhere!
    it really needs to be better especially when end users have multiple labs from different creators, schedules etc.

    It would be nice if the cards in the dashboard listed:
    The Lab creator - fetched from Graph with user image and mail address.
    The name of image in use, possibly an image logo
    The actual schedule (if configured)
    custom support link

    The count of registered…

  5. Assign multiple VMs to a student with their own vnet so they can create a network

    We have an in house lab experience where we can assign multiple windows/Linux VMs to students, these all come with a public IP and part of a Vnet so they can create their own network and test client/server applications between them

  6. Give Warning to Users About Shutdown

    Currently, when a shutdown is initiated in the schedule, it force quits all programs and shuts down the machine without any notice to the user. This abrupt of a shutdown could result in a loss of work if the user is active at the time of the scheduled shutdown. Please provide an option when scheduling a shutdown to give notice to the user (see attached for an example). This can be achieved with the simple command: shutdown /s /t 300

  7. Please add Classroom Labs to MAG

    We have DoD customers who train DoD members world wide from E-1 to GS15, and would greatly benefit from this service as they migrate from on-prem to Azure with Classroom Labs.

  10. The virtual machine shuts randomly and sucks... not stable at all

    You really have to take a look to virtual machines on azure... not reliable at all. Machine shuts down randomly with no reason and when reboot, the port 80 will not be accessible for a while before restart working...

  12. Show Which Labs Have an Active User Logged In

    It would be useful for the virtual machine list to show which machine has a user actively logged in so as administrators/instructors we can know which machines can be stopped without interfering with a student's work.

  14. autoshutdown manual default value

    Oftentimes admin has same single or few needs of values for autoshutdown TZ and hour.
    Would be nice to have be able to set default value in webUI (or use saved user profiles if you plan to add more flexibility and choices to that option)

  15. delete unused VMs in DevTest Labs

    As an extension to the expiry date in DTL, an option to auto-delete VMs not used for xx days would be awesome.
    Maybe even a warning e-mail to the VM owner before the deletion

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  20. Auto-shutdown is basically useless without auto-startup!

    Adding auto-shutdown to production VMs could be interesting if there was an auto-startup! Pretty incredible to have to say it, really.
