Inside OMS book v2 Preview Chapters Release

Written by Tao Yang

Over the last few months, Stan, Pete, Anders and I have been very busy with writing the version 2 of the Inside Microsoft Operations Management Suite book. Although we still have few more chapters to finish, we have decided to release 3 preview chapters now.

The first preview chapter was released yesterday. It was Chapter 6: Extending OMS Using Log Search (http://insidethecloudos.azurewebsites.net/early-chapter-preview-of-inside-oms-version-2/). This chapter was written by myself, and reviewed by my MVP buddy Kevin Greene (@kgreeneit) and Pete himself. This chapter has covered several OMS functionalities that are based on Log search:

  • Saved Searches
  • OMS Computer Groups
  • Custom Fields
  • Custom Logs
  • Power BI integration

Since there aren’t many documentations out there on for OMS Power BI integration feature, I have specifically spent a lot of time on the Power BI integration feature, it makes up about half of this 73-page chapter.

I must say that Kevin has done a fantastic job reviewing this chapter. Kevin’s review was really thorough, when I got Kevin’s feedback, it literally blew my mind! So special thanks to Kevin and Pete for their effort reviewing this chapter.

Lastly, the next 2 preview chapters will be released shortly. Please keep eye on Pete’s blog (http://insidethecloudos.azurewebsites.net).
