Include Azure Automation on Key Vault Firewall under "Trusted Microsoft Services"
Currently, Azure Automation accesses Azure Key Vaults through public endpoints (Azure Data Center Public IPs). As such, Automation cannot function unless a firewall exclusion is in place in the key vault settings. Unfortunately, Azure has hundreds of public IP addresses, which could change at a moments notice. This, in effect, negates use of the Key Vault firewall altogether and requires you to allow incoming untrusted networks.
There is a firewall setting "Allow Trusted Microsoft Services", which allows select services to bypass the firewall. Automation is not included in this list. It would be a great help to include it; immediately securing the platform and making the firewall usable.
