With Automation, you can save time, reduce errors, and increase efficiency, while lowering your operational costs. Automate all of your frequent, time-consuming, and error-prone cloud management tasks to free up more time for work that adds business value.
Automation runbooks can handle websites, Virtual Machines, Storage, SQL Server, and other popular Azure services. You can also use them to connect and manage any service that has a public Internet API.
Process automation is charged by job runtime. You will only be charged for the number of minutes/hours that exceed the free unit allowance.
|Free units included (per month)||Price|
|Job run time||500 minutes||￥0.01/minute|
Configuration management includes the configuration pull service and change tracking capabilities. Billing is based on the number of nodes that are registered with the service and the log data stored in the Azure Log Analytics service.
Charges for configuration management start when a node is registered with the service and stop when the node is unregistered from the service. A node is any machine whose configuration is managed by configuration management. This could be an Azure virtual machine (VM), on-premises VM, physical host, or a VM in another public cloud. Billing for nodes is pro-rated hourly.
|Free units included (per month)**||PRICE|
|Non-Azure node||5 nodes||￥61.056/node|
Update management includes visibility and deployment of updates in your environment. There are no charges for the service, you only pay for log data stored in the Azure Log Analytics service.

How is it billed?
We provide you with the service for free. For automation, we bill you based on the total number of minutes of job runtime used by all Automation accounts associated with your subscription. For example, using 5,500 minutes in one month will result in a charge of ￥50.
Which free units are included each month?
Included free units are units available for you to use at no charge and are refreshed every month. All usage charges for the free units for each month are charged at the standard pricing rates. These free units are not available to subscribers using rate plans providing a flat discount or a fixed monthly credit amount.
