This is something that I’ve been waiting for so long. Microsoft has now released a preview Powershell module for Azure Automation which enables us to configure update management on Virtual Machines.

https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/updates/azurerm-automation-6-0-preview/

with this, we can enable and configure update management features on a VM.

These are the cmdlets that are available in the module

Get-AzureRmAutomationSoftwareUpdateConfiguration

Get-AzureRmAutomationSoftwareUpdateMachineRun

Get-AzureRmAutomationSoftwareUpdateRun

New-AzureRmAutomationSoftwareUpdateConfiguration

The new module also has other cmdlets used for source control as listed below

New-AzureRmAutomationSourceControl
