You can now sync the user list of a lab to an existing Azure Active Directory (AAD) group in https://labs.azure.com! Users and VMs are automatically added/deleted based on the AAD group membership.
But first, what is an AAD group? To put it simply, it’s a group that can be created within your organization’s Azure Active Directory to manage access to organizational resources and cloud-based apps. To learn more, see the documentation on AAD groups. If your organization uses Microsoft Office 365 or Azure services, your organization will already have admins who manage your Azure Active Directory.
How to add a lab to an AAD group
NOTE: If you don't see an Azure AD group in the list, it could be because of the following reasons:
Automatic management of virtual machines based on changes to the AAD group
Once the lab is synced to an AAD group, the number of virtual machines in the lab will automatically match the number of users in the group. You will no longer be able to manually update the lab capacity. When a user is added to the AAD group, a lab will automatically add a virtual machine for that user. When a user is deleted from the AAD group, a lab will automatically delete the user’s virtual machine from the lab.
