Microsoft Operations Management Suite (OMS) Connector

 

A new feature in technical preview 1607 is the connector to OMS to allow syncing of data such as collections from ConfigMgr to OMS.

ASSUMPTION: You have knowledge of Azure and OMS configuration outside of SCCM.

  • In update 1607, you will see a new item called OMS Connector

  1. Click OMS Connector and click on Create connection to Operations Management Suite from the toolbar

  2. You will see the first dialog of the Connection to the Operations Management Suite Wizard. Click Next

     

  3. Enter the Tenant, Client ID, and Client secret key in the next dialog. All this information can be gathered from the Azure Portal. You may need to create a new Application (Under the Directory -> Applications) for the Client ID and key (second screen shot below).

    Once entered, you will need to click Verify to continue.

     

     

  4. Once the it’s properly verified, you will see the options to add your subscription, resource group, and Workspace name. Click Add to add the ConfigMgr collection(s) that OMS will collect the data from.

     

  5. Final confirmation box will show your selections.

     

     

  6. After few minutes, logon to the OMS portal (mms.microsoft.com). Do a Log Search for * Type=ComputerGroup.

    Now you will see all the computers in the selected Collection (in the above settings) display in OMS. You will see the GroupSource equal to SCCM for those machines. My OMS was configured only for this so other servers are not there yet in my lab.
