This chapter covers the various Azure Automation assets and their relevance in Azure Automation. We will also look at nested runbooks, which enable modularity and reusability of runbooks. Automation assets play an important role in Azure Automation, as you can reference the assets within a runbook, and they will be accessed at different stages during runbook execution. Automation assets provide flexibility to the administrator since they can be defined once and reused whenever required. For example, you can create a schedule for repetitive execution of runbooks, and the same schedule can be linked to multiple runbooks. You can create a connection asset to establish connections to target resources, and this asset can be used by multiple runbooks. This chapter will give you a detailed understanding of Azure Automation assets and how they can be defined and leveraged in Azure Automation.
