Allow secrets at the lab level
Right now secrets are only on per user level. It would be great if Contributors and Owners could define secrets at the lab level that can be used along side user secrets.
My current use case is that I don't want all of the lab users to know the domain password when using the Join Domain artifact. Right now I have to add the password to their key vault. The default permissions for their personal key vault allows them to view the value of the secret. I think I can lock this down, but then there is another manual intervention that needs to be done for every user.
Another use case is to make sure that if the users of a lab all want to use the same password for the VM, this can be stored at the lab level rather than each user adding it themselves. (formulas can help here, but still)
We do have this feature on our backlog, but do not have a timeline for it as yet.
We will update the status as soon as we have an ETA.

hi Microsoft. How on earth can this not be implemented yet? I am putting in DEVTEST labs and the lack of sharing the secrets is hurting. Allen asked for this 2 years ago. Please hurry
This is a must-have feature, guys... I wonder how you didn't figure out about this need earlier... Please update the status. Thanks
Whats the status on this one?
Please hurry with this. We are on site at a customer and need this capability or DevTest labs isn't feasible for their purposes!
I am just starting to establish formulas for my team to all utilize. I've created custom artifacts for the formulas, and they rely on secret information that i thought was shared (at the lab level) but instead each user that uses the formula must have the same secret define, it's an extra hassle as well as being not so secret any more for info that is common for all lab users but should remain secret.
