    What if the HRW could be run in a container? Then you could service multiple automation accounts with a modicum of separation between the instances.

    As you mentioned, we initiate a change detection job once every 24 hours to enumerate the Azure file share and scan for changes. This is required for the Azure file share because Azure Files currently lacks a change notification mechanism like Windows Server has. Long term we will add this capability and have automatic immediate sync.

    There is now a way to trigger sync to happen on files that are placed directly in the Azure File share. With this new cmdlet you can point sync to particular files or directories and have it look for changes right then. This is intended for scenarios where some type of automated process in Azure is doing the file edits or migrations are done by an admin (like moving a new directory of files into the share). For end-user changes, the best thing to do is install Azure File Sync in an IaaS VM…

    The change notification mechanism would be greatly helpful in a lot of ways, like making it possible to trigger Azure Automation runbooks based on changes in an Azure File Share!
    Please make it happen!

    Thanks for the feedback! We will look at making these modifications to starting a runbook job.

    I think it would make sense for such a setting to be cascading, effectively setting the default for the Start action. I have mixed feelings about whether this should affect Start-AzAutomationRunbook

    The lack of an "AZ" PowerShell module for Search is unfortunate.

    The Product Group is coming up with the support of managed identity for Automation to be used instead of Runas account with a tentative ETA of CY21 March-End. All our investments would be towards moving customers to use managed identity rather than RunAs.
