General availability: Start/Stop VMs during off-hours in Azure Automation

Published date: July 31, 2018

The Start/Stop VMs during off-hours solution starts and stops your Azure virtual machines on user-defined schedules, provides insights through Azure Log Analytics, and sends optional emails by using action groups (email functionality not available in Government subscriptions). It supports both Azure Resource Manager and classic deployment models for VMs in most scenarios. 

 These updates are part of making this solution generally available:

  • All dependent modules are updated to the latest available versions.
  • This solution is now available in Government subscriptions.
  • This solution can now be deployed from Azure Automation under the Related Resources section.
