Azure runbook script to send mail using PowerShell and SendGrid

 Hi Friends,


Today I will be showing how to create and send the mail notification using the SendGrid through Azure Runbook and Powershell

Azure runbook script to send mail using PowerShell and SendGrid @SharePointWidgets.com


SendGrid is a third party API that is very much integrated with Azure and is very easy to use. It provides various ways to send the mail. In this blog, I will be explaining the code to use SendGrid REST API to send the mail.

STEPS..!!

Step 1:

To use SendGrid, you should have 2 things
  1. SendGrid Subscription Key: This key will let the SendGrid know the subscription you have and will allow the number of emails accordingly
  2. Sender Identity: This identifies the sender so that the mails do not lands up in the SPAM/JUNK folder.
To have the above two, you need to login to the SendGrid and follow the instruction.

Step 2: Store the Subscription key in Key Vault

To maintain the security, I will be keeping the SendGrid Subscription Key into the Azure KeyVault. If you want to do the same, please follow the steps mentioned here

Make a note of the two properties that we will be needing in the script
  • Key Vault Name
  • Secret Name

Step 3: Code in Runbook

This is the last step, If you haven't created one follow the step below
  • Create an Automation Account
  • Navigate to the account and then to Runbooks and create a new one
Once the runbook is created, paste the below code and update the VaultName and SubscriptionKey variable values




Click on save and then test

Hope this script will save a lot of time and will help you... Do write me if you need any help on the topic.

Happy Coding..!!
