Automanage for Azure virtual machines (Preview)

Brass Contributor

The best benefits of using Automanage are:

-- Intelligently onboards to select best practices Azure services
-- Automatically configures each service per Azure best practices
-- Configures guest operating system per Microsoft baseline configuration
-- Automatically monitors for drift and corrects for it when detected
-- Simple experience: Point, click, set, forget -> done

If you are enabling Automanage with a new Automanage account, you need :

-- Owner role or Contributor and User Access Administrator roles on the subscription(s) containing your VMs.

If you are enabling Automanage with an existing Automanage account:

-- Contributor role on the resource group containing your VMs
