I managed to created flow that passes variables ( from email or sharepoint ) to azure automation runbooks.
Now, I'd like to receive variables from those runbooks back to flow .
How is this acheivable ?
Hi @ DSM,
Could you please share a screenshot of the configuration of your flow?
Do you want to receive variables from runbooks back to flow after passes variables to azure automation runbooks in your flow?
Please share more details so we could provide a proper workaround for you
Yes , I do want to receive variables from runbooks back to flow after passing variables to the same azure automation runbook.
In this example , the variables ( name and days ) are taken from a sharepoint list, to put a user on Litigation Hold.
Flow sends those 2 variables to the runbook and put the user on Litigation Hold
It works very well, but I need to have some kind of confirmation that the command ran successfully, and return back to sharepoint. An output of "get-mailbox" would be great but I dont know how to return it back to Flow.
Thanks for you help,

I found a solution of doing it.
You can do it by passing a variable and then compose a variable. Then generating the variable output as string(output) and passing it as Automation Job ID.
Let me know, if you need screenshot.
@abbas_sayyed - Can you please provide a screenshot? I am also trying to pass output from an Azure Automation runbook back into flow. For example, users create a list item in SharePoint, using that data, I input into Azure Automation Runbok to create a work item in Azure DevOps. I then want to write the work item ID created in the runbook back to the SharePoint list item. How are you passing something as Automation Job Id?
Thanks @abbas_sayyed. I actually found what I was looking for. In Flow, Azure Automation has a task called Get Outputs which I didn't see. I was exepcting the output from the Create Job task. So I added another task after Create Job for Get Output which then passes the output as the "Content" dynamic content. All good!
Could you please send the screen shot for receiving variable from azure automation. And also share the screen shot for azure automation output.
Thanks & Regards
