Automation: Graphical authoring of runbooks

07 May 2015

In the latest Preview release of Azure Automation, we introduced  graphical authoring, which allows you to author runbooks by using a graphical tool and a graphical programming model, with no code required. Simply insert activities from the library to the canvas, link them together into a workflow, and configure the properties to create useful runbooks that automate your IT processes. Users of System Center Orchestrator will be familiar with this intuitive method of authoring runbooks. Create runbooks that represent your IT processes visually and allow you to focus on how data flows through the process and which systems are involved. GraphicalWorkspace For those who like to author Windows PowerShell workflow scripts, we have updated the textual authoring workspace to give it a larger editing space and new library and testing experiences shared with graphical authoring. The graphical and textual authoring tools are complimentary, and you can use either or both depending on your requirements. For more information, see Azure Automation: New Graphical and Textual Authoring Features.
