Has anyone had experience developing an Azure Automation PowerShell workflow for provisioning virtual machines? I'd like to create a way for enterprise corporate users to request Azure Vms and have the provisioning workflow standardize the steps required to complete the VM. Has anyone done this and can share your experience, caveats, gotchas, problems with this approach, etc.?
Thanks!
