    Thanks for the feedback, Jacob! We are planning to simplify your work to create custom images from an external VHD, and we are in progress to come up with a solution for that. One of the ideas is to provide a PowerShell scripts that will copy the VHD and deploy an ARM template coming with it all at once, so the only thing you need to do is to run the PowerShell by passing some parameter values (e.g. URI to the VHD, etc.). Does it work with you? For your particular request, we will investigate and see how ARM template in general supports this kind of action. Thanks!

    As long as you can do it with one ARM template and not two. Currently I use a Powershell script to deploy the lab using an ARM template, transfer the vhd from another blob storage account, and then use a second ARM template to deploy the custom image. It would be nice to do it all in one 'deployment' if that makes sense.

    I'm not sure I can see anywhere that a DSC extension can be used with DevTest Labs artifacts.

    My specific scenario is as follows. I have a DSC configuration that provides the standard configuration for all our VMs. This DSC configuration is deployed via an ARM template when VMs are created.

    There seems to be no way, either via ARM template or via the portal to specify the configuration for the DSC extensions when the VM is created.

    You can now use the Azure CDN to access blobs with custom domains over HTTPS. See the following article for instructions on how to do so: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/storage/storage-https-custom-domain-cdn. Having talked to a number of customers, we concluded that this solution addresses many scenarios where the need for HTTPS access to blobs with custom domains exists.

    Native Azure Storage support for using SSL to access blobs at custom domains is still on our backlog. We would love to hear about your scenarios where using the Azure CDN is not an acceptable solution, either by posting on this thread or sending us an email at azurestoragefeedback@microsoft.com.
