Azure Automation Meter Name Changes

Azure Automation delivers a cloud-based automation and configuration service that provides consistent management across your Azure and non-Azure environments. With Azure Automation:

  • Save time, reduce errors and increase efficiency, while lowering your operational costs.
  • Automate all your frequent, time-consuming and error-prone IT management tasks, in the cloud or on-premises, letting you focus on work that adds business value.

For consistency, effective from 1 March 2018, two meter names associated with Automation will be changed. These changes will not affect the meter’s usage data, price or resource GUID. You may need to adjust your reports to accommodate the new naming convention. See the table below for name changes.
