Test environment Ubuntu 20.04, Terraform v0.12.28, provider.azurerm v2.18.0 Azure Automation runbooks are a convinient way to run code in the cloud or on-premises (using Hybrid workers). You create a runbook, create a webhook and your code can be pretty much triggered by any event or system. I had a scenario where some of my runbooks were using a custom PowerShell module that was not publicly available. This short article document my approach. While developping some terraform configuration I noticed the azurerm provider did not offer a way to upload a PowerShell module into the Automation acco ..read more

PowerShell/Azure - Update App Service Access Restriction IP Rules

by François-Xavier Cat
2y ago
Tested on PowerShell 7.0.0 on Ubuntu 18.04 I recently helped out a friend who needed to configure restrictive IP Address Rules on an Azure App Service Service using PowerShell. The goal was to be able to set IP Address Rules but also overwrite anything currently setup. Azure App Services are publicly accessible by default via your_app_name.azurewebsites.net or your_app_name.scm.azurewebsites.net. You might want to restrict the access to specific IP CIDR or force clients to access your app via different routes, examples: Application Gateway or Firewall. In the Azure Portal, the IP Address Rules ..read more

I wrote on Offline Domain Join (ODJ) a while back where I used PowerShell to rebuild a “djoin-compatible” file from the djoin.exe output in a format that djoin would accept. In my scenario at the time, I couldn’t pass the file generated by djoin directly. What is the djoin.exe you may ask ? this is a tool provided by Microsoft that allow you to join a machine to an Active Directory domain without network connectivity. The operation happens in two phases: First you run djoin on a machine connected to Active Directory which output a very long string of text (or a file directly with that string ..read more

Tested on: Windows PowerShell 5.1 PowerShell 6.2.2 Quick tip - How to trigger code at specific times I recently had someone ask how they could trigger a piece of PowerShell code at different times. This type of tasks can usually be handled by other systems such as Scheduler, Event or message based systems. In this particular case, it needed to be handled in the current PowerShell session. I came up with the following solution. Let me know in the comment section if you would use another approach and I’ll add you to the post. # Specify the Execution times $TriggerTimes = @( '4:12:00 ..read more
