Allow to select the Resource Group for my VM/VHD image
When adding a new VM/VHD image to DevTest Lab, it as default creates a new Resource Group containing that VM image, network interface, Global IP etc.
And that is also fine if you need the extra level of security. I some cases though, I just don´t need the extra overhead that these resource groups pose - would like to have everything in one and same resource group.
In our company we typically use <Product/Application Name><Environment letter> as the naming for our resource groups. So if we can avoid it, we do not like all of these "extra" resource groups that floats around and cluttering the "picture".
So request is - PLEASE let me select in which resource group to put the VM/VHD image when adding it :-) THANKS
Thanks for the feedback John! If I understand correctly, the main motivation is to use the naming convention of your company to identify the RG, yes? Or is the top priority to avoid clutter from the extra RGs?

I agree with giving an option of keeping ONE resource group for the DTLab. Instead, we end up with a clutter of resource groups. If I want to manually power on one VM via PowerShell, then I need to know which resource group it's in, which ends up being a super long string of LABRGXXX. If I want to bulk start/stop VM's, then it becomes unruly. Isn't this the point of Resource Groups???

I ran into this issue when creating a run book to start/stop VM's based off of ResourceGroups. It is possible to migrate the VM's to a new ResourceGroup, but it would be nice to have a way to select one up front while creating the VM's.
