Caution

Because Az PowerShell modules now have all the capabilities of AzureRM PowerShell modules and more, we'll retire AzureRM PowerShell modules on 29 February 2024.

To avoid service interruptions, update your scripts that use AzureRM PowerShell modules to use Az PowerShell modules by 29 February 2024. To automatically update your scripts, follow the quickstart guide.

Description

The Import-AzureRmAutomationRunbook cmdlet imports an Azure Automation runbook. Specify the path to a wps_2 script (.ps1) file to import for wps_2 and wps_2 Workflow runbooks, (.graphrunbook) file for graphical runbooks, or (.py) file for python 2 runbooks. For wps_2 Workflow runbooks, the script must contain a single wps_2 Workflow definition that matches the name of the file.

Examples

Example 1: Import a runbook from a file

PS C:\> $Tags = @{"tag01"="value01"; "tag02"="value02"}
PS C:\> Import-AzureRmAutomationRunbook -Path .\GraphicalRunbook06.graphrunbook -Tags $Tags -ResourceGroup "ResourceGroup01" -AutomationAccountName "AutomationAccount01" -Type GraphicalPowershell

The first command assigns two key/value pairs to the $Tags variable. The second command imports a graphical runbook called GraphicalRunbook06 into the Automation account named AutomationAccount01. The command also assigns the tags stored in $Tags.
