  • Here are some code snippets that might help you.

    1) Create a service principle in AD. And use the values of tenantId,ClientId and ClientKey from service principle to get authorization token.

    private static string GetAccessToken(string tenantId, string clientId, string clientKey)
                Console.WriteLine("Begin GetAccessToken");
                string authContextURL = "" + tenantId;
                var authenticationContext = new AuthenticationContext(authContextURL);
                var credential = new ClientCredential(clientId, clientKey);
                var result = authenticationContext.AcquireTokenAsync("", credential);
                if (result == null)
                    throw new InvalidOperationException("Failed to obtain the JWT token");
                string token = result.Result.AccessToken;
                return token;

    2) Below snippet helps you for quickstart in retrieving the list of jobs that are available in respective automation account. You can modify it as per your requirement.

    private static string RetrieveAzRunbookStatus(string token)
                string URL = "{subscriptionId}/resourceGroups/{RGName}/providers/Microsoft.Automation/automationAccounts/{automationaccount}/jobs?api-version=2017-05-15-preview";
                HttpClient client = new HttpClient();
                client.DefaultRequestHeaders.Add("Authorization", "Bearer " + token);
                HttpResponseMessage httpResponseMessage = client.GetAsync(URL).Result;
                if (!httpResponseMessage.IsSuccessStatusCode)
                    var response = httpResponseMessage.Content.ReadAsStringAsync().Result;
                    var response = httpResponseMessage.Content.ReadAsStringAsync().Result;
                    var mylist = JsonConvert.DeserializeObject<ResponseClass>(response);
                return httpResponseMessage.StatusCode.ToString();

    Please note to get the details of specific job, you need send the job name or jobid .

    Hope this helps!

  • How do I get the token to send on the request?

  • The first step contains GetAccessToken method that retrieves the token, you can pass the same token to the RetreiveAzRunbookStatus method.
