How can we improve Azure Automation service?

DSC Extension for VMSS - Simple Example

There are many excellent examples of how to create the needed ARM Template info to apply and Azure Extension to a VMSS including references to setting up LCM via DSC scripts which is pulled in....

Most recently there is documentation on git-hub which states that you can simply provide a set of "defaults" to use the "default script" to setup the VM in the SS to pull from Azure Automation; however, I can find no single example that indicates exactly how to do this rather I go in a loop of links to that wind up going back where I started...

Start here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/virtual-machines/windows/extensions-dsc-overview#default-configuration-script

Go to: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/virtual-machines/windows/extensions-dsc-template#default-configuration-script

Go to: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powershell/dsc/metaconfig#basic-settings (scroll to bottomo of page)

Go to: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/automation/automation-dsc-getting-started

Go to: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powershell/dsc/metaConfig

Which is a link that I was on earlier... just need to be pointed to the right GitHub repo exmple... please.
