Thanks for this suggestion.
Hi Hugo, does this not cover your need here? https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/azure-automation-your-sql-agent-in-the-cloud/
Great feedback. We are looking at potentially delivering a solution in this area. Thank you!
Automation DSC is part of the OMS suite (https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/server-cloud/operations-management-suite/pricing.aspx) and provides this functionality (https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/articles/automation-dsc-overview/).
Can folks please comment as to the gaps in Automation DSC preventing this from being marked 'completed,' in their view?
Thanks for this feedback!
Thanks for this suggestion. Yes, as you mentioned & Joe explained this is a known issue in SMA and Azure Automation, but there are workarounds now.
We can use this request to track making connection types mutable.
Thanks for the feedback. Connection types are immutable. Right now you need to either change the name of the connection type when you import a module, or you must delete the old version of the connection type before importing the module. For the latter, see https://t.co/FjMKwJ1cXb

You can enable verbose streams for textual test jobs today. See: https://azure.microsoft.com/blog/2014/09/17/azure-automation-controlling-runbook-streams-for-testing-and-troubleshooting/

Related to this, if an error (not an exception) is hit in the runbook, the runbook will still complete successfully, and show "Completed" status, but may not have done what it is supposed to do. The dashboard and job status page will not show this as a suspended or failed runbook, since no exception was hit. There should maybe be another category on the dashboard page for runbooks that "completed with errors" so the user is aware that these jobs may need to be looked at.
