  1. Oracle Linux Support in Azure Automation

    We would like the ability to use the Azure Automation Hybrid Runbook Worker and Update Management features with our Oracle Linux 7 VMs. Oracle Linux is listed as an endorsed distribution in the Azure documentation (, and is a derivative of RHEL, an already supported OS. Some of our Oracle applications require Oracle Linux, so moving them to RHEL or CentOS is not an option.

    Thank you!
