Automation is a key concept in the field of IT operations, and it is becoming increasingly important as organizations strive to improve the efficiency and reliability of their systems and services. However, implementing automation can be challenging, as it requires a deep understanding of the systems and processes that are being automated.

In this learning path, you'll explore the challenges and techniques involved in learning automation. We will discuss how to analyze issues and errors recorded in log files, and apply appropriate fixes to scripts. We will also look at how to create scripts that are resilient to intermittent problems such as networking issues, and how to debug and step through scripts in complex distributed environments. Finally, we will discuss how to secure scripts, executing them as a non-root user with the least privileged permissions.

By the end of this learning objective, you will have a solid understanding of the challenges and techniques involved in learning automation. You will be able to analyze issues and errors recorded in log files, and apply appropriate fixes to scripts. You will also be able to create scripts that are resilient to intermittent problems, and debug and step through scripts in complex distributed environments. Additionally, you will be able to secure scripts, executing them as a non-root user with the least privileged permissions.
