Public preview: Azure Automation supports PowerShell 7.2 and Python 3.10 runbooks

Published date: October 31, 2022

Azure Automation now supports runbooks in latest Runtime versions - PowerShell 7.2 and Python 3.10 in public preview. This enables creation and execution of runbooks for orchestration of management tasks. These new runtimes are currently supported only for Cloud jobs in five regions - West Central US, East US, South Africa North, North Europe, Australia Southeast. We are actively working on adding more regions to this list.

Azure Portal experience to author and execute runbooks remains the same as previously available Runtime versions. PowerShell 7.2 and Python 3.10 can be easily selected through the dropdown menu during runbook creation.
