How To Define Mandatory Artifacts For Virtual Machines In An Azure DevTest Lab

One of the big selling points of the cloud is the ability to spin entire environments up, and tear them down again, on demand. We all understand this benefit, but how do you go about capitalizing on it? One specific challenge you may come across is needing to ensure that a specific PowerShell module, or third-party application, is installed on every virtual machine deployed into an Azure DevTest Lab.

In this snip, Josh demonstrates how mark an artifact, either custom or predefined, as mandatory and ensure that all VMs deployed into your Azure DevTest Lab have them installed automatically. Reduce your administrative load while you make the most of your cloud journey.
