Create multiple data disks with a property copy in an ARM Template

When you had to create a N number of items from a property in an ARM object, you had to create an array and take N from that array. With the new copy functionality you are able to do a copy on an property in resource deployment object. For disks this can look like:

           "copy": [
            {
              "name": "dataDisks",
              "count": "[parameters('dataDiskCount')]",
              "input": {
                "diskSizeGB": "1023",
                "lun": "[copyIndex('dataDisks')]",
                "createOption": "Empty"
              }
            }
          ]

This new feature will make the creation of multiple properties a lot easier. For a full sample you can look at: Ryan Jones GitHub.
