File format for runbooks in GitHub
In your connected GitHub repository, all documents within the defined folder are read and attempted to be parsed as runbooks. For documents to be successfully parsed, the documents must be in the format "requestRunbookCreate" as it is defined by the API. For more information about the API, see the Runbook Automation - API Documentation child page under Runbooks API.
Runbooks exported with the "exportFormat" flag are automatically in the correct format, so it is possible to export existing runbooks and put them into the GitHub repository. You can use the same procedure to create templates for manual editing afterward.
