PaaS in DevTest Labs Autostart and Autostop

Rachael Thompson 1 Reputation point

I was wondering how to enable auto-start and auto-stop for PaaS environments in DevTest Labs? I have searched but cannot find any info, it appears the feature may only apply to VMs.

Is there a way to enable this feature for DevTest Labs or a suitable workaround perhaps using a runbook?

    Hello @Rachael Thompson ,

    Thanks for reaching out!

    As mentioned in the official docs, #4:

    Azure PaaS resources can be provisioned in an environment from a Resource Manager template and appear in cost tracking. However, VM auto shutdown does not apply to PaaS resources.

    For additional information, please take a look at: Create multi-VM environments and PaaS resources with Azure Resource Manager templates

    Coming to workarounds, please describe your environment/requirement so we can evaluate and suggest accordingly.

    Hope this helps!
