Specify Marketplace images available to lab creators in a lab account


Azure Lab Services will be retired on June 28, 2027. For more information, see the retirement guide.


The information in this article applies to lab accounts. Azure Lab Services lab plans replace lab accounts. Learn how you can get started by creating a lab plan. For existing lab account customers, we recommend that you migrate from lab accounts to lab plans.

As a lab account owner, you can specify the Marketplace images that lab creators can use to create labs in the lab account.

Select images available for labs

Select Marketplace images on the menu to the left. By default, you see the full list of images (both enabled and disabled). You can filter for Status to be equal to Enabled or Disabled.
