Name changes: Automation DSC
Published date: 16 November, 2017
The PowerShell Desired State Configuration (DSC) for the Azure Automation DSC service is expanding to include the ability to perform update management, collect inventory, and track changes across both Azure virtual machines and computers running in hybrid datacenters.
The name of the DSC Free billing meter changed to “Configuration Management for Azure Nodes,” and the name of the DSC Paid billing meter changed to “Configuration Management for Non-Azure Nodes.” Pricing has not been affected, but you might need to modify billing routines that rely on meter names. Learn more about Automation on the overview and pricing webpages.
