TechNet Script Center gallery hosting Automation scripts (runbooks) as shown in the Runbooks Gallery is set to retire by December 2020. You can go through the official announcement here by the TechNet team. It entails that all PowerShell & Python scripts available at Script Center gallery would have to be moved to another location. We’ve chosen GitHub as the new source for all Azure the TechNet gallery here. We chose GitHub due to the various benefits offered by the platform around making it easy to contribute to your open-source projects, showcase your work to the community, track down issues, documentation etc.
The change would go live by Jan 15, 2021.
Today, there are more than 700 Azure Scripts owned by various Product Teams at Microsoft as well as external contributors. These scripts are accessed by the customers through the Runbook Gallery blade of the Automation account in the Azure Portal. The Source filter, previously shown as Script Center would be replaced by GitHub as shown below. The workflow will be integrated with GitHub moving forward.
Upon selecting a runbook, “View Source Project” will take you to the GitHub repository for that script. Runbooks displayed from Source PowerShell Gallery will remain as-is without any changes.
What will change?
Summarizing the changes that you will see in the script migration from Script Center to GitHub below:
” TechNet gallery is retiring! This script was migrated from TechNet script center to GitHub by Microsoft Azure Automation product group. All the Script Center fields like Rating, Rating Count and Download Count have been carried over to GitHub as-is for the migrated scripts only. Note: The Script Center fields will not be applicable for the new repositories created in GitHub & hence those fields will not show up for new GitHub repositories.”
If you want to contribute to an existing runbook:
You can either raise a PR with the changes or create a fork out of the repository.
Note: If you fork the repository, the runbook maybe be shown twice on the Automation runbook gallery (One of them would be the original and other one would be the forked one.)2.
