Azure DevTest Labs: Claim a random virtual machine through a single click

04 March 2017

Azure DevTest Labs allows lab admins to create multiple VMs in a claimable pool. As a lab user, you can simply take a VM from the claimable pool instead of creating it from scratch.

In most cases, VMs in the claimable pool are identical. To mitigate the chance of collision when multiple users try to claim the same VM at the same time, we've introduced a button that enables users to claim a VM from the pool through one click.

By clicking the Claim any button on top of the Overview blade in your lab, you will randomly get a virtual machine from the claimable VM pool.
