You can now manage your Azure resources using Automation task directly from the Azure Portal. An automation task is actually a workflow that runs on the Azure Logic Apps service.
How to create an automation task?
In the Azure Portal, open the resource you want to manage, and then scroll to the Automation section and select Tasks.
Then, click “Add” to see the available template. Right now, there are only 4 tasks:
- Send the cost of the resource every month
- Start VM at a scheduled time of the day
- Stop VM at a scheduled time of the day
- Deallocate VM at a scheduled time of the day
In my case, I select to send an email about the cost.
Under the Authentication section, you will need to create the connections.
Once it is done, you will see the green flag
To finish, add the email that will receive the cost every month.
