Migrate your runbooks to managed identities in Azure Automation by 30 September 2023

Published date: October 07, 2022

On 30 September 2023, Azure Automation Run As accounts will be retired and you'll need to migrate your runbooks to managed identities for authentication by that date. Managed identities provide the same functionality as Run As accounts, plus:

  • Secure authentication to any Azure service that supports Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) authentication.
  • Minimized management overhead with easy access to resources.
  • Simplified runbooks with no requirement to use multi-line code.

Required action

To ensure you're using a supported authentication method, migrate your Azure Automation runbooks from Run As accounts to managed identities by 30 September 2023.
