Azure DevTest Labs: Set expiration date for a virtual machine

martes, 2 de agosto de 2016

In Azure DevTest Labs, you can now set an expiration date and time for a virtual machine. The VM will be deleted within 24 hours of the specified date and time. The time is in UTC.

You can do this by using an Azure Resource Manager template—namely, by specifying the expirationDate property for the VM that will be created in the lab. You can check out a sample Resource Manager template in our public GitHub repository. You can also modify any of the existing sample Resource Manager templates for the VM creation (name starting with 101-dtl-create-vm) by specifying the expirationDate property as follows.

"resources": [
    {
      "apiVersion": "2016-05-15",
      "type": "Microsoft.DevTestLab/labs/virtualMachines",
      "name": "[variables('resourceName')]",
      "location": "[resourceGroup().location]",
      "properties": {
        "customImageId": "[parameters('existingCustomImageId')]",
        "size": "[parameters('newVMSize')]",
        "isAuthenticationWithSshKey": false,
        "userName": "[parameters('userName')]",
        "sshKey": "",
        "password": "[parameters('password')]",
        "labVirtualNetworkId": "[variables('labVirtualNetworkId')]",
        "labSubnetName": "[variables('labSubnetName')]",
        "expirationDate": "[parameters('expirationDate')]"
      }
 
    }
  ],
