How can we improve Azure Automation service?

Provide listKeys functionality through the api (similar to storage accounts)

We're using ARM templates to deploy Azure IaaS VM's, with the DSC extension defined in the template to onboard them to Automation DSC. In most situations, we're dedicating an automation account to each environment and creating it using the same ARM template(s) defined in the solution. At runtime, we'd like to be able to provision the automation account in ARM and then use listKeys functionality (as currently with storage accounts), to essentially onboard the VM to the automation account in the same operation.

    This has been implemented and documentation is coming very soon. As soon as the documentation has been published this will be marked ‘complete’.

    As a temporary reference, examples for the listkeys for the registration key and reference for registrationurl are available here:
    https://github.com/Azure/azure-quickstart-templates/tree/master/101-automation-configuration

    In tandem, we will be documenting an update to the DSC Extension so that an external file is no longer required when using the extension to bootstrap servers to the Azure Automation DSC service.

    Thank you!
