This extension will make you capable of working in Azure Automation without leaving Visual Studio Code.

Runbook view container
In the side bar, a new view has been added to give an overview of your runbooks.
When clicking on a runbook it will automatically fetch your draft version and create as a file locally in you open folder. However, if you have a published version available, it will show as a child - so expand the runbook item and click 'Published' to get you published version of the runbook, to edit. Below is a quick view of how the tree structure is supposed to look for your runbooks.

This extension was made with specific use inside my organisation for eye. A few of the functions have been designed specifically for this. Since version 0.6.4, it has been posible to turn off these functionalities. Trying to make this a generic usable as posible.
Feedback on this functionality is more than welcome - as is changes to this, to support a broader usecase.
I would really appreciate if you could bring usecases for the following examples, and requests to how it should work:
