  1. Create a native SCSM Azure Automation connector

    System Center Service Manager (SCSM) only has connectors to SMA and Orchestrator. To be able to shift to Azure Automation for all our automations there have to be an Azure Automation SCSM connector. Please add this soon!

  2. Allow Custom Module sync / link from AzureDevOps Artifacts (or other external repository)

    We have multiple custom powershell modules. All are in CI/CD in Azure Devops.
    I now have created a workaround to keep modules in Azure Automation up-to-date.
    Publishing our modules to the PowerShell Gallery is not an option.

    Please provide a way to link PowerShell modules to Azure DevOps Artifacts using a service connection / webhook / whatever, or to any other private repository for that matter.

  3. Allow access to Azure KeyVault

    Currently, i'm using azureKeyVault for account and secret but it didn't work in DSC automation configuration so i need to push to AzureAutomationCredential to access. Is it possible to allow access keyvault from automation ?

  4. Please add SQL as Runbook type.

    This would make Azure Automation a suitable replacement for SQL Agent. It would require only a few inputs: Server, Database, Credentials and obviously the SQL code to execute.

  5. Enable simpler, more direct modifications to Azure Websites

    Currently the requirements including setting azure resources is pretty convoluted (and currently does not work). A way to interact directly from automation with the websites and change common features would be very beneficial.

    under review  ·  Beth Cooper responded

    Thanks for the feedback. Can you describe some specific scenarios that you would like to use this for?

    Right now, you would write PowerShell cmdlets against the website that you want to automate against.

    Do you want to be able to send the website or website properties as parameters to a runbook to automate it? Or are you looking for similar functionality to that provided in web jobs?

    Thanks,
    Beth

  6. Allow execution of a PowerShell script on every instance from the Management Console

    Allow, from the management console, to execute a Powershell command (with elevated permissions) on every instance in the hosted service (or role). There should also be an option to do a rolling run or a brute force run.

    Output from the script, obviously, needs to be displayed at the end of the run.
