Az module support in Azure Automation is coming soon
Published date: 06 August, 2021
Microsoft has announced that the AzureRM PowerShell module will retire by 29 February 2024 & has introduced a new generation of PowerShell modules named “Az” which provides all the capabilities of AzureRM PowerShell modules and more improvements like :
- Greater security and improved authentication.
- Availability in Azure Cloud Shell and on Linux and macOS.
- Support for all Azure services.
Azure Automation will be supporting Az modules natively soon. All new automation accounts will be created with the latest version of Az modules imported by default.
There will also be a user-controlled option to update modules to Az for existing Automation accounts. This will provide a version selection option for customers to update the existing modules to the latest version from the Azure portal, thereby taking away all the hassles of manually importing & updating the modules.
