Automation: Activity tracing for troubleshooting graphical runbooks
Posted on 12 August 2015
Azure Automation has added activity-level tracing to assist with testing and debugging graphical runbooks. The trace information currently includes the start and end time and duration for each activity. This information makes it easier to follow the time sequence of actions and correlate issues that occur with activities. It is in our plans to also show the input and output data for each activity.
