How can we improve Azure Automation service?

Provide configuration data management for DSC

Currently, it is not possible to handle configuration data in the Azure Automation portal. The only option is to create a hash table or psd1-file in PowerShell and use with the ConfigurationData parameter of Start-AzureRmAutomationDscCompilationJob.

It would be very useful if the Azure Automation portal could provide a “configuration data editor” where it`s possible to define an environment with properties applicable to all nodes (‘*’), define properties for individual nodes as well as custom properties needed in the environment (“NonNodeData”). The data structure created would then be converted into a hash table which can be selected as an option when compiling a configuration, both from the portal as well as from PowerShell.

For example:
$Environment = Get-AzureRmAutomationDscConfigurationEnvironment -Name Contoso-Production
Start-AzureRmAutomationDscCompilationJob -ConfigurationEnvironment $Environment
