Azure Automation PowerShell ISE Addon

Microsoft recently released to GitHub and the PowerShell Gallery a new solution that adds an extension to the PowerShell ISE allowing you to author, maintain and test Azure Automation PowerShell Workflows locally.

http://www.powershellgallery.com/packages/AzureAutomationAuthoringToolkit/

I've created a quick video to show the installation and initial configuration:



The next day after creating the video I realised that I had uninstalled the module while doing the video so I went to re-install it, only to be told that I had version 0.2.2.4 installed already, but version 0.2.2.6 was now available.

Thankfully, adding the -Force switch to the Install-Module AzureAutomationAuthoringToolkit command makes it very easy to update.

 
 

I'll be following up soon with a quick guide on usage.

The video is really helpful as a guide to installation. I'm sorry you accidentally uninstalled it while using it, but looks like everything turned out for the better. Thank you so much for sharing the guide.
