Public preview: Azure Automation watcher tasks
Published date: November 28, 2017
Azure Automation has the ability to integrate and automate processes across Azure and on-premises environments by using a hybrid worker. This hybrid management capability has been extended to deliver automatic responses to events in your datacenter.
You can use a watcher task to author a watcher runbook that polls a system in your environment. The watcher task then calls an action runbook to process any events found. The watcher runbook and action runbook are authored in PowerShell and run on a Windows hybrid worker.
Pricing for Automation watcher tasks is available on the pricing page.
