Automation: Entering runbook input parameter values made easier

Published date: 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.
