"Export Template" function in DevTest Labs
The functions and settings of DevTest Labs are expanding on a weekly basis. As this resource is getting more and more complex, we should be able to export the lab, after configuring it. Currently, this is possible only while the lab is being created and only for the Shutdown schedule. There are now several settings, like available gallery images, cost metrics and autostart that should be available for template deployment.
Thanks for submitting this idea. This idea has been added into our backlog. We don’t have an ETA for it at this point of time though, because it has to be prioritized with all the other items in the backlog. For people who do want to see it sooner, please don’t hesitate to add your votes for it. Thanks!
Excellent idea. I can see needing a unique DTL per developer or functional team; yet all of these being based off of one template. There is no need to repeatedly configure the same access policies.

That is correct. It's very difficult to find a way to implement Gallery image restrictions by using a JSON template. Same goes for the cost quotas, thresholds and other configurations that we want to deploy Out-of-the-Box.
