Transcript

Welcome back. In this quick demonstration, I'm going to show you how to start a runbook from the Azure portal. On the screen here, you can see I'm logged in to my Azure portal as my administrator. To start my runbook, what I'm going to do here, is go into Automation. And we'll select Myautomationaccount. Now from my automation account, I simply select Runbooks under process automation, and then I can either create a new runbook or I can run an existing runbook, simply by selecting the runbook and then clicking Start. Go ahead and click Yes to start the runbook. And then from the job page here, I can view the status of my runbook job. I can view any input, any output, errors, warnings, any kind of logs, and any exceptions. And that's all it really takes to manually run a runbook from the Azure portal.
