Easy UI with Connection Options
Functionality and Logic need to be more Intuitive. Connecting assets to monitor insights should not be so difficult.
We are sorry to hear you find this difficult. Unfortunately it is not very clear what exactly you found complex.
Right now the big blue ‘Settings’ tile on the overview screen is your entry point for the steps of adding agents/system, adding solutions to your workspace, and configuring log collection, and it is meant to guide you thru these first steps.
We have some step-by-step documentation about onboarding starting here https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/articles/operational-insights-onboard-in-minutes/
and there are even videos, i.e. https://channel9.msdn.com/blogs/satyavel/3-Ways-to-Onboard-to-OpInsights albeit the UI probably already changed a little since then.
We are continuously making enhancements, see for example this review https://cloudadministrator.wordpress.com/2015/08/04/operations-management-suite-goodbye-silverlight-and-other-stuff/ so, as the UI changes, is not always possible to immediately have uptodate documentation and guidance, but generally we try to make it simpler.
