Where can temporary files be created in Azure Automation

Q. Where can I safely create temporary files when using Azure Automation?

A. The best option for a location to create temporary files is under the $env:TEMP location. Note that any data is lost as soon as the runbook execution has completed however it makes a good storage location for temporary files that are hopefully stored longterm in something like Azure Storage and the temporary location is to download the data for access.
