Azure DevTest Labs: Claim a random virtual machine through a single click
Posted on Saturday, March 4, 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.
Please try it today and let us know what you think about it! If you have an idea for how to make it work better, submit your feedback (or vote for others) at the Azure DevTest Labs feedback forum.
