Automation runbooks available in action groups to take actions from alerts

An Azure Automation runbook is a new action type available in Azure action groups. 
When you create an action group, you can select to run an Automation runbook in addition to any other actions that you configure. You can choose a built-in runbook that's supplied by Azure for common tasks, or you can choose a custom runbook that you've created in your Automation account.
This capability greatly extends the possible actions that you can take when an alert (activity log alert or near-real-time metric alert) triggers an action group on an Azure resource. For example, you can use a runbook that will gather additional troubleshooting information from the affected resource and then send it for review. Or the runbook can take immediate remediation actions to fix the issue or limit its extent.
