Automatic Image Creation using Azure VM Image Builder is now generally available

Published date: January 23, 2024

We are happy to announce Automatic Image Creation using Azure Image Builder is now generally available. This feature improves your speed and efficiency by allowing you the ability to start image builds for new base images automatically.

Automatic image creation is critical for keeping your images up-to-date and secure. It also minimizes the manual steps required for managing individual security and image update requirements.

You no longer have to manually update images that have been patched. Instead, you can create ‘triggers’ for the images you wish to update automatically and allow the Azure Image Builder service to perform the build for you.

Getting started 

You can get started using the auto image creation feature by following the instructions provided in the documentation: How to use Azure Image Builder triggers to set up an automatic image build. To learn more about Azure Image Builder, read the Azure Image Builder Overview.
