Tags: Azure Automation AccountsAzure CloudAzure Key VaultAzure Storage

Answer

  • Create Azure Automation Account
  • Import Modules to access Azure Key vault (AzureRM.Profile, AzureRM.KeyVault)
  • Configure Azure Key Vault access policy (either using Azur e Portal or run Set-AzKeyVaultAccessPolicy)
  • Create a Runbook (PowerShell Runbook)
  • Configure the PowerShell script that will retrieve the automation connection using Get-AutomationConnection, login to Azure using TenantId, ApplicationId, CertificateThumbprint from the connection, then it will create new keys in Azure Key Vault and update the keys in the Azure Storage Account

Note that by default you don't need to Add a new Connection as a connection gets automatically created on Azure Automation Account creation (its name is AzureRunAsConnection)
