How can we improve the Azure Resource Manager?

Provide GUID function in Azure Resource Manager template language

Hi,
I think there should be function in the ARM template language with which I can generate unique and valid GUID. Services like Automation and Operational insights (OMS) use guids for creating certain resources like jobs and saved searches. This will provide better experience for template deployments with these service. For example if I want to execute runbook with ARM template I will not have the need to generate GUID for the job in advance that will be done by function. This will also make the experience of deploying trough Portal, VS or PowerShell the same.
