If you need to get a status snapshot of Automations across business units, here’s one way to go about it.
Add this code to a CloudPage in the parent business unit, update the
mids array to include the desired values and publish.
You could also set something like this up in a Script Activity and write the results to a Data Extension for use in another process.
NOTE: As leto96 mentioned in the comments, CloudPages are public and should not be considered secure. Anyone with the URL can access it. Initial SSJS development is best done in a CloudPage, where you have a way to debug with output. Just be careful to unpublish or secure any utility/reporting type pages after you’re done.
