  2. Simplify VM start and stop

    Better allow a scheduled restart from the VM configuration itself along the lines of the shutdown option. my team has individual MSDN subscription but they can't create azure automation account due to organisation policy and limited permissions.

  4. version of sdk

    Which version of the azure python sdk is installed in the automation runbooks? I am trying to delete snapshots using

    ```
    compute_client = ComputeManagementClient(

    azure_credential,
    
    str(runas_connection["SubscriptionId"])

    )
    computeclient.snapshots.begindelete
    ```
    and i get the error

    AttributeError: 'SnapshotsOperations' object has no attribute 'begin_delete'

    Trying to get the version also fails -

    ```
    from azure.mgmt.compute._version import VERSION
    print(VERSION)

    -> No module named _version
    ```

  6. Connect-MsolService when MFA is implemented causes error

    Attempting to implement Connect-MsolService in Azure Automation using a stored credential throws a "bad username or password" error if MFA is enabled. Is there a workaround or a scheduled timeframe for this to be fixed? Why does none of the documentation provide any guidance to this fact even to note if it is not supported?

    $credential = Get-AutomationPSCredential -Name '<credential>'
    Connect-MsolService -Credential $credential

  9. Request for adding national holidays into Recurrence Details of Automation Runbook Schedule

    I would like you to add national holidays each area into Recurrence Details of Automation Runbook Schedule.

    It is preferable that we can have VMs automatically stop and start not only on Saturdays and Sundays but also on national holidays.

  11. Reduce runbook schedule frequency

    Currently, runbooks can be scheduled to run with a minimum frequency of 1 hour. Can we bring this down to let's say 30 or 15 min atleast for some out of the box monitoring?

  12. For graphical runbooks, would be interesting can enable/disable a block in the canvas.

    When you are editing or testing a runbook sometime you need to change a block of a cmdlet for other and today, you have to delete the block that you don't want to test. If you can disable, you don't need to delete and re-add if you realize that the deleted block is not the problem, just need to enable again.

  13. UI issue: description is not displayed

    In Azure Automation variables the description in the UI always displays 'description' instead of the actual value. When you query the value via PowerShell the actual value is retrieved. I see no difference between in the UI created variables or variables created by code (ARM/PowerShell).

  14. Update management - excluded updates

    Hi PG team,
    Currently for Update Management deployment configuration we can only exclude patches based on KB. A great way to also exclude updates its by application, instead of constantly adding KB to deployment schedules. This option would have many benefits when setting up deployment schedules. Please take this suggestion into consideration.

    Regards,
    José Lourdes

  18. AdvancedSchedule generates error when using monthDays for new schedule

    If I want to deploy a monthly schedule on for example the last day of the month I encounter an error message when I used the REST API or the ARM template.

    The body of the REST API (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/rest/api/automation/schedule/createorupdate) for creating schedules I used look likes this:

    {
    "name": "demoSchedule",
    "properties": {
    "startTime": "2022-05-07T22:00:00+02:00",
    "interval": 1,
    "frequency": "Month",
    "advancedSchedule": {
    "weekDays": [],
    "monthDays": [ -1 ],
    "monthlyOccurrences": []
    } }
    }

    When I execute this REST call I receive the following error message:

    {
    "code": "BadRequest",
    "message": "Argument requestScheduleData with value Orchestrator.Schedules.DataAccess.Models.ScheduleAllData is not valid. Error message: The…

  20. Azure update management with snapshot option before patch deployment

    Hi Azure Team, Can you have a snapshot feature in azure update management. The vmware vsphere snapshots take 30-40 seconds to complete and that would be a good option if we have it here. Azure backups clash with the deployment schedules and this shouldnt be the case.
