On 30 September 2023, we'll retire the Azure Automation Run As account that you use for Runbook authentication. Before that date, you'll need to start migrating your runbooks to use managed identities.
Managed identities is an Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) feature that provides an automatically managed secure identity in Azure AD for Azure services when connecting to resources that support Azure AD authentication.
Managed identities provide you various benefits:
- Managed identities can be used to obtain Azure AD tokens to authenticate to any Azure service that supports Azure AD authentication without having to manage any credentials.
- Managed identities eliminate the management overhead associated with managing RunAs Account in your runbook code. You can access resources via a managed identity of an Automation account from a runbook without worrying about creating the service principal, RunAsCertificate, RunAsConnection, etc.
- You don’t have to renew the certificate used by the Automation Run As account.
Follow the migration instructions to start migrating the runbooks from Run As account to identities before 30 September 2023.

Me parece de muy mala manera retirar una cuenta, aparenta ser una discriminación; así las mujeres o a los que podemos estudiar más cosas y no solo el hecho de ser mayores de edad.
Thank you for the information.
The only automation accounts we have are system created ones by Azure Site Recovery. Is any action required for these?
