  1. Migrate runbook with assets to another Automation Account

    It would be nice to have the option to migrate a runbook to another Automation Account. With a user action, on whether or not assets and stuff, associated to the runbook, should be moved too.

    I see it useful in a Test / Prod environment. We want multiple users to be able to develop runbooks, but only in a controlled environment. And then move it to our production Automation Account when done.

    Thanks for posting this suggestion. We do have integration with source control which would easily enable you to sync your runbooks from a dev to prod account easily. https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/azure-automation-source-control-13/

    Are you asking to be able to pick a runbook and supporting assets and then move them to another account? Would being able to group them together and export them as an ARM template work as a potential solution or is your preference to have a tool in the UX to do this?

  2. Add node js library

    It would be awesome if you would add Azure Automation node library to your azure-sdk-for-node.
    Really looking forward for this!

  4. "Saving the runbook" after creation of new runbook for a few min

    How long after creation and publishing a new run book before you can use the Test pane?

    Seems to be more then a few min after the publishing process finishes. Would be nice to have a message with the time needed to wait before you can run test panel.. Instead you get "Saving the runbook" if you try to run it.

  5. TELNET Client? Why adding this simple funcionality doesn't work?

    There's no option to add any Windows features using runbooks. Why? I can't treat this as config manager since simple things doesn't work.
