How to start a runbook

The Runbooks page in the Automation feature of Windows Azure Pack provides a list of existing runbooks, plus commands to start, import, export, or delete a runbook. The Runbooks page displays information about all runbooks. You can filter the list by job status (for example, Completed) or by a time interval. If the runbook is attached to one or more schedules, it will run at the scheduled times.

To start a runbook

1.   In the management portal, click Automation.

2.   Click Runbooks.

3.   Select a runbook and click Start.

Check the runbook logs to stay informed of its progress.
