Announcing Full PowerShell Cmdlet Support for Azure Automation

You asked, and we answered! This week marks the release of the latest version of the Azure PowerShell module, and along with it 23 new PowerShell cmdlets for managing Azure Automation, locally in the PowerShell ISE / console or within Azure Automation runbooks. The update includes new cmdlets for accounts, assets, and scheduled runbooks.

 

New cmdlets:

  • New-AzureAutomationAccount
  • Remove-AzureAutomationAccount
  • Get-AzureAutomationScheduledRunbook
  • New-AzureAutomationVariable
  • Set-AzureAutomationVariable
  • Remove-AzureAutomationVariable
  • Get-AzureAutomationVariable
  • Get-AzureAutomationCredential
  • New-AzureAutomationCredential
  • Remove-AzureAutomationCredential
  • Set-AzureAutomationCredential
  • Get-AzureAutomationCertificate
  • New-AzureAutomationCertificate
  • Set-AzureAutomationCertificate
  • Remove-AzureAutomationCertificate
  • Get-AzureAutomationConnection
  • New-AzureAutomationConnection
  • Remove-AzureAutomationConnection
  • Set-AzureAutomationConnectionFieldValue
  • Get-AzureAutomationModule
  • New-AzureAutomationModule

  • Remove-AzureAutomationModule

 

Notable updates:

You can learn more about the Azure Automation cmdlets on MSDN, or install the latest Azure PowerShell module here.

 

Note: There is a known bug in this release where runbook tags are not gettable / settable through the runbook-related cmdlets. We are working on fixing this for the next version of the Azure PowerShell module. Given this bug, we will not be auto-updating the version of the Azure PowerShell module shipping in Azure Automation until the next release of the Azure PowerShell module. If you are not using this tag functionality and want to take advantage of the new Azure Automation cmdlets in your runbooks, feel free to import the latest version of the Azure PowerShell module yourself.
