Deploy with ARM templates an Azure DevTest Lab environment

Within the company I work for we use Azure DevTest Labs already for a year to host our personal development computer and the BizTalk CI machines we need. We are planning to host also our development and test environments in Lab environments. At the moment we configure the lab environments manually.

I invested some time to write ARM templates to deploy Azure DevTest Labs within 5 minutes based on Azure DevOps CI/CD pipelines. In the process of writing these scripts I learned a lot. For example that the Azure documentation is not always up to date and that includes also tooling like Azure Resource Explorer. Based on querying the REST API with Postman I found the missing pieces for deploying a DevTest Lab environment based on nested ARM templates.

In this post I will document the nested ARM template I created the last few days.

Lab

With the first template you can create the lab environment itself and configure the following parts of the environment
  • Lab settings; like the storage which the lab environment uses and if premium data disks are allowed.
  • Internal support; information for the internal support link.
  • Lab settings; if the lab users have read or contributor rights to the resource group.
  • Lab announcement; information which is displayed to the users on the lab overview page.

Schedules

With the schedules template you control the automatic shutdown settings and the general startup settings.

Policies

The policies template control all kinds of restrictions which control the amount of money your lab users can spent. This is also the template which cost the most research time to write because the REST API documentation is behind the actual situation.
  • Auto shutdown policy; Set the level of control that lab users have over their individual VM shutdown schedules. You can mandate different levels betweeen complete autonomy and a locked down schedule.
  • Allowed virtual machine sizes.
  • Number of virtual machines per user (including premium OS disk usage).
  • Number of virtual machines per lab (including premium OS disk usage).
  • Allowed gallery images; option to restrict which images are useable within the lab environment.
  • Allowed environment templates; option to restrict which ARM templates can be used within the lab environment.

In all the projects of this solution I use the wildcard notation for generating build and revision numbers.
