  1. Configure RDP file settings at lab or VM level

    We need the ability at the lab and maybe even VM level to be able to configure what is in the RDP file that is downloaded. We do use the RDP gateway in the lab and it is creating the RDP file but we also want to configure it so that we can add\update settings such as "audiocapturemode", etc. Right now our developers have to modify the RDP file as some of them turn on monitor spanning, audio capture mode, etc. I would like to configure it at the lab level and allow individual developers to update it at the…

  2. Ability to manage permissions on claimed VMs

    With current behavior, when a lab user claims a VM, the lab user will have "Owner" privileges on the claimed VM. This means that lab users can even delete the claimed VM. This behavior make it difficult for lab admins to manage lab VMs' lifecycle.
    It would be great if lab admins can manage permissions that is added to lab VM when VM is claimed by users. This feature enable lab admin to manage VMs' lifecycle and to permit lab users to only claim/unclaim/start/stop lab VMs. I don't think this scenario can be achieved with current DevTest Labs features.

  3. Lab auto start per VM not just generic Lab time

    At the moment I can specify a differnt time if the lab is set to allow that for shutdown, but not for Auto start up, Auto start is only Yes or No, please change it to match Auto Shutdown.
