Is it possible to use Artifacts in production environments? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I like the use of Artifacts in DevTestLabs and think the functionality would be very useful for production environments. It would be nice to place Artifacts as resources in an ARM template for an "Azure only" IaC model. Sure, I'd still have to use DSC, but I think that counts as Azure "only" too in so far as the way I'd like to see my IaC constructed. 

    So, am I missing something, or, at present, is DevTestLabs the only place I can currently utilize Artifacts?

  • Hi Mark,

    Yes. However, note that currently, Azure DevTest Labs artifacts leverage Azure Custom Script Extension technologies under the covers. So, you can in theory use those capabilities outside of DTL.
