  3. Adding VNET ResourceId back to VNET properties page

    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.

  8. Provide a way to reset VM specific auto-shutdown to factory defaults

    As a manager of a lab I need to reset all of my VMs to reset to the factory defaults for auto-shutdown. I had some VMs that were overriden on the defaults and I cannot find a way to reset them or delete my override schedule and notification.

    I tried deleting values, disabling auto-shutoff, re-enabling, etc. In all instances, I could not seem to get the auto-shutdown lab defaults to return.

    Can you help us understand why you would like to return to defaults?

    Currently, users can override the lab shutdown.
    If you would like to enforce your schedule as the schedule for all lab VMs, you can do so using the Auto shutdown policy blade and selecting ‘Users have no control..’

    Does that help?

  9. Continuous delivery should work with preview versions like .NET 2.1 preview

    There is an option by using extension to use .NET 2.1 preview for app services but the same/similar option should be there for continuous delivery in build agents as well to test .NET 2.1 preview etc. with CI.

  10. Billing notifications

    At present the cost integrations are via a single webhook. Would it be possible to surface cost details in Monitor so that alerts can be generated based on more specific thresholds and destinations?

  14. Option to choose how we connect to VM when we click [Connect] button in DevTest Labs' VM blade.

    When we choose [Virtual machines] - [<target VM resource>] - [Overview] and then click [Connect], the management portal shows "To connect to your virtual machine via RDP, select an IP address, optionally change the port number, and download the RDP file." And we can select 'DNS', 'Public IP' or 'Private IP'. However, when we go to [DevTest Labs] - [target lab resource] - [All virtual machines] - [<target VM resource>] - [Overview] and click [Connect], no option to connect is shown and downloading RDP file just starts. It is such a hassle to go to standard VM's blade to do…

    Thanks for your feedback!

    DevTest Labs is built in a way that lab owner sets up the networking for the entire lab. The goal is to not have lab users go through the hassle of looking for the IP addresses and other information to connect to their VMs.

    Can you please describe your scenario and why you need this information to connect to a lab VM?
