Runbook and module galleries for Azure Automation

Rather than creating your own runbooks and modules in Azure Automation, you can access a variety of scenarios that have already been built by Microsoft and the community. You can either use these scenarios without modification or you can use them as a starting point and edit them for your specific requirements.

You can get runbooks from the Runbook Gallery and modules from the PowerShell Gallery. You can also contribute to the community by sharing scenarios that you develop.
