LCS: Sync up actual LCS status of cloud-hosted environments with Azure

When the VM in a cloud-hosted environment is stopped or started in Azure (e.g. via Azure automation run books), the status of the environment is not reflected in LCS. This is causing confusion on the part of users who navigate to these environments via LCS.

Our customer is usi...

The plan is to expose APIs from LCS to start and stop the VMs and the recommendation will be to use those instead of doing it from Azure so status is handled correctly.

Generic API for LCS

Many tasks in Azure/365 can be automated. On.y in LCS is no chance to control with e.g. PowerShell. An API like REST would be very fine for automating LCS tasks.

We have released two sets of APIs, and will continue to add more based on feedback.  One set is the DevALM whereby you can automatically upload packages from Azure DevOps, and deploy those to your Tier2 environments.  The other is the DataALM whereby you can trigger database refresh from Production to Sandbox, or between Sandboxes.

Apply deployable package via LCS using a mobile device

When you try to apply a deployable package to a non-production environment via LCS using a mobile device, picking the right deployable package is kind of Russian roulette. Currently on android phone and iPads the experience is, that you are only seeing the columns "Modified by" and Publisher, ...

Hello 

Thank you for your feedback.

This is a great suggestion! We are planning on making APIs available externally for customers to start and stop VMs that can then be orchestrated through Flow or Logic Apps. It might not be through Azure DevTest Labs

An option to automatically shutdown newly deployed virtual machines

At the moment LCS does not have a fixed duration for deploying new Operations environment virtual machines, aka. we don't exactly know how long it takes. An option in the deployment settings to enable shutting down the machine(s) when they are deployed would be beneficial cost wise.

Improve IP Access Restrictions

The new IP access restrictions are very cumbersome and hard to maintain. It takes over a minute for each IP address range to be entered and we have to enter an average of 3 ranges for about 3 environments per client and about 50 clients. That's nearly a full day of time for just data entry.&nb...

Downtime Landing Page

It would be great to support a downtime landing page.  This would go hand-in-hand with the downtime message that we can send to users in the system prior to the outage.

During an outage, there is no way for users to understand that the system is offline on purpose.  A simple ...

    We have partially addressed your idea. We now allow customers to delete assets. For the part around allowing customers to modify release notes and version description, will review with the engineering team and get back.
