Creating Your Own Runbooks


Now that you have a clear understanding of the basics of Runbooks, you’re ready to create your own runbooks.

Creating Your Own Runbooks

You can create your own runbooks from scratch or modify runbooks from the Runbook Gallery where there is a rich ecosystem of runbooks available for your own requirements.

There is also a vibrant open-source community creating runbooks that you can use to directly apply to your use cases. You can choose from three different runbook types based on your requirements and Windows PowerShell experience.

If you prefer to work directly with the PowerShell code, you can use a PowerShell runbook or a PowerShell Workflow runbook that you can edit offline or with the textual editor in the Azure portal.

If you prefer to edit a runbook without being exposed to the underlying code, you can create a graphical runbook by using the graphical editor in the Azure portal.
