Automation: Classic Run As account
Published date: 05 August, 2016
You can now create a Classic Run As account from the Azure portal.
When you create a new Azure Automation account in the Azure portal, it automatically creates a Classic Run As account by uploading a certificate. This helps you to quickly start building and deploying runbooks to support your automation needs.
By using a Classic Run As account, you can provide a standardized way to authenticate with Azure when you're managing Azure Service Management or classic resources by using runbooks.
