GA: Create disks from CMK-encrypted snapshots across subscriptions and in the same tenant

Published date: February 22, 2023

We are making customer-managed keys (CMK) more flexible to use with managed disks. Azure already supports copying snapshots and disks across subscriptions. We are now extending this functionality to include CMK encrypted snapshots and disks. It will now be possible to create a disk in another subscription and in the same tenant while creating from a source snapshot or disk encrypted with CMK.  

This new capability can be used to create disks to refresh a dev environment from CMK-encrypted snapshots of a production disk in another subscription. You can also use this functionality to create VM’s from CMK encrypted golden images stored in another subscription and in the same tenant.
