Enable scaling plans for existing and new host pools (preview)
You can enable scaling plans for any existing host pools in your deployment. When you apply your scaling plan to the host pool, the plan will also apply to all session hosts within that host pool. Scaling also automatically applies to any new session hosts you create in your assigned host pool.
If you disable a scaling plan, all assigned resources will remain in the scaling state they were in at the time you disabled it.
Assign a scaling plan to an existing host pool
To assign a scaling plan to an existing host pool:
Open the Azure portal.
Go to Windows Virtual Desktop.
Select Host pools, then go to Scaling plan and select New.
Select Scaling plan, then select + Assign to assign a scaling plan to an unassigned host pool, as shown in the following screenshot.
If you've enabled the scaling plan during deployment, then you'll also have the option to disable the plan for the selected host pool in the Scaling plan menu by unselecting the Enable scaling plan checkbox, as shown in the following screenshot.
Edit an existing scaling plan
To edit an existing scaling plan:
Sign in to the Azure portal at https://portal.azure.com.
Go to Azure Virtual Desktop.
Select Scaling plan, then select the name of the scaling plan you want to edit. The settings window should open.
To edit the plan's display name, description, time zone, or exclusion tags, go to the Properties tab.
To assign host pools or edit schedules, go to the Manage tab.
