Using Logic App Parameters with Microsoft Sentinel Playbooks

I recently made a recommendation about the importance of Making Use of Variables in Microsoft Sentinel Playbooks. In this post I want to take this just a bit further and make an addendum recommendation.

Have you ever wondered how to generate those fill-in blanks that are produced during deployment of an ARM template (as shown in the image below)?

Fill-in Parameters

You do this through the use of the Parameters option in the Logic App Designer…

Parameters option

Just like you would for initializing variables, these Parameters can be used from the dynamic list throughout the Logic App. The difference is that when you create a deployment template for your Playbook (using Sreedhar’s Playbook Template Generator), your custom, reserved variables (like tenant ID, subscription ID, etc.) are retained and safe and the deploying environment can enter their own values.
