Public preview: Python 2 support and Hybrid Runbook Workers for Linux


Azure Automation now supports Python 2 and Hybrid Runbook Worker functionality for Linux in public preview.

Python 2 support means you can import, author, and run Python 2 runbooks in Azure or on a Hybrid Runbook Worker. Python 2 support includes scheduling and interacting with Automation resources, such as variables, connections, and credentials.
