Supported regions for linked Log Analytics workspace
Start/Stop VM during off-hours version 1 is unavailable in the marketplace now as it will retire by 30 September 2023. We recommend you start using version 2, which is now generally available. The new version offers all existing capabilities and provides new features, such as multi-subscription support from a single Start/Stop instance. If you have the version 1 solution already deployed, you can still use the feature, and we will provide support until 30 September 2023. The details of the announcement will be shared soon.
In Azure Automation, you can enable the Update Management, Change Tracking and Inventory, and Start/Stop VMs during off-hours features for your servers and virtual machines. These features have a dependency on a Log Analytics workspace, and therefore require linking the workspace with an Automation account. However, only certain regions are supported to link them together. In general, the mapping is not applicable if you plan to link an Automation account to a workspace that won't have these features enabled.
The mappings discussed here applying only to linking the Log Analytics Workspace to an Automation account. They don't apply to the virtual machines (VMs) that are connected to the workspace that's linked to the Automation Account. VMs aren't limited to the regions supported by a given Log Analytics workspace. They can be in any region. Keep in mind that having the VMs in a different region may affect state, local, and country/regional regulatory requirements, or your company's compliance requirements. Having VMs in a different region could also introduce data bandwidth charges.
Before connecting VMs to a workspace in a different region, you should review the requirements and potential costs to confirm and understand the legal and cost implications.
This article provides the supported mappings in order to successfully enable and use these features in your Automation account.
