Automation: Entering runbook input parameter values made easier

Friday, November 13, 2015

The experience of entering runbook input parameters is improved in Azure Automation in the preview portal. You will see this improved experience when you start a runbook, test a runbook, link a schedule to a runbook, or create a webhook for a runbook. In particular, you now see all the key information you need to make decisions about parameter input values. You can see if a parameter is mandatory or optional, what the parameter type is, if there is a default value and what the default value is. Also, entering [EmptyString] for a string type is supported, and the Help balloons are updated with helpful information.
