Using Standard_SSD or faster for os disk in azure


I’m using packer for creating azure vm images. For better performance I’d like to use SSD disk for os disk but I couldn’t figure out from the documentation how to do this. Currently (no matter what instance type I use) it’s always using Standard_HDD. Is defining os disk type something that is supported?

Packer version 1.8.4.

Yes, so, I had undestood documentation incorrectly. The answer was pretty simple:

managed_image_storage_account_type = "Premium_LRS"
