  • The only way to create a runbook programmatically would be to build the XML just like an export file would be (which would also be unsupported). There is no programmatic way to build runbooks built into Orchestrator.

    There's also no supported way of importing runbooks programmatically. Orchestrator does have a COM interface that can be used to do things like that, but it's not supported and the process of doing it is quite complex.
