  1. Add background job to refresh assets on the Runbook Editor blade

    Add a job to refresh assets so if an asset is added in another browser tab you don't have to leave the editing blade to see the assets in the editor blade

    Connection types are defined as a file in the module file. Is there a reason that you want to created them via cmdlets instead?

    As a side note, you can do this through our API today as a workaround.

  4. Describe properties of a connection

    When adding a new Connection, it would be nice to have descriptions or more information for the various required fields - Application, Tenant, Certificate - and possibly a dropdown box for the subscription.

    Thanks for posting this! We had considered something similar a while back, but it fell off our backlog. We’ll take another look.

  5. Graphical: Add labels to links

    Please make it possible to add labels on links in graphical runbooks, otherwise I can be hard to understand logic of the runbook. (Was one of the great features of SCO Classic).

  6. Azure portal blades are impossible to navigate. Please add sizing controls to better navigate.

    The blades on the portal are very poor in performance and navigation controls. Please improve the blade navigation by adding sizing controls. The technologies and solutions are great, but the portal experience leaves the users abandoning the idea.

  7. Bug in associate shcedule to a runbook through cmdlet Register-AzureRmAutomationScheduledRunbook

    You can define inconsistent types between runbook parameter type and the type of the parameter associated with a schedule. For example, if you have a runbook RB0, it has a parameter P0 of type Boolean.
    You can actually use Register-AzureRmAutomationScheduledRunbook cmdlet to associate a schedule with parameter P0 of a string type.

  8. Alert for internal job error of Runbook

    Currently there is no alerting mechanism to alert when jobs in automation accounts get Completed with errors. The job shows completed, which means the runbook script has executed ok, but when we go inside the job we can see errors. There should be some alerting configured to know that the Automation job has completed with errors.

  9. I would like to see a circle graph demonstrating the degree of compliance.

    Just like the Automation resource page, a circle graph that demonstrates degree of compliance.

  11. Display Name for Custom Connection Type Properties

    With the current Connection Type extensibility, giving 'friendly' names to the properties within the type is not possible, resulting in unfriendly names displayed to the user when creating a new Connection. Supporting Text Hints would also be nice, though less necessary.

    ie:
    {
    "ConnectionFields": [

    {
    
    "IsEncrypted": false,
    "IsOptional": false,
    "Name": "ServiceBusNamespaceURL",
    "DisplayName": "Service Bus Namespace URL",
    &quot;Hint&quot;: &quot;ie: <a rel="nofollow noreferrer" href="https://[namespace].servicebus.windows.net&quot;">https://[namespace].servicebus.windows.net&quot;</a>,
    &quot;TypeName&quot;: &quot;System.String&quot;
    },

  12. Allow Advanced source Control Sync to Github and VSTS

    provide an option to allow users to unhide the runbooks that sync AA and Github to allow users to modify the process, with their custom process.

    Use case would be adding an email notification or integrating with a ticketing system so their is a record of who preformed the sync and when in other system than the Azure Audit log.

    Thanks for posting this! You can actually overwrite these scripts with your own content today just by importing a runbook with the same name as the script (just like global modules, these are global runbooks). So for example, you can name a script Sync-MicrosoftAzureAutomationAccountFromGithubV1 and your script will run when you click the “Sync” button.

    In order for us to make these scripts public, we need to remove some proprietary code so this isn’t just as simple as releasing them. I’ll discuss with the team to see what we can do though.
