Have the ability to move an existing VM to the DevTestLab. I have several vm's that my developers use and do not want to have to Re-Create all of these machines.163 votes
DevTest Labs now supports integration with Azure Shared Image Gallery (SIG).
For the scenario you outlined above,
You can extract the images for the VMs you would like to move to a lab
Upload these images to the shared image gallery
Attach the shared image gallery to your lab
Create lab VMs from these images
Upload images to a SIG: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/virtual-machines/windows/shared-images-portal
Attach a SIG to a lab: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/lab-services/configure-shared-image-gallery
Create a lab VM from a SIG image: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/lab-services/add-vm-use-shared-image
We have existing resource groups with test environments. We would like to add them to a DevTest lab so that they are managed by the DevTest policies.154 votes
Currently, you can configure all lab VMs to be created in an existing resource group instead of the lab creating a new RG per VM.
For ARM environments, every environment is spun up in its own RG to allow for better cost tracking user and policy management for resources created for that specific environment.
Add Join Domain to list of mandatory Artifacts that can be applied to Windows VM's3 votes
You can configure your own domain join artifact and set it as a mandatory artifact as a workaround.
Would be nice to have VNC artifact so we could monitor tests without interrupting them or creating a session via RDP.1 vote
Thanks for submitting the idea! DevTest Labs artifacts are open source, and we welcome community contribution to the DevTest Labs public artifact repo: https://github.com/Azure/azure-devtestlab.
For artifacts that you find helpful for your context we advise you write your own and store it in a private artifact repo.
