Your Own Dashboard in Azure Operational Insights!

[NOTE -  Operational Insights is now a part of Operations Management Suite. Learn more at microsoft.com/OMS ]

The ability to visualize search results is another top ask in the OpInsights Feedback forum – and we have just delivered it to you!

This is what your dashboard can look like:

And here's how you can get started. On the Overview page, you will notice a new "My Dashboard" tile there.

The first time you access My Dashboard, you will see a simple pictorial on how to use dashboard.

Simply click on 'Customize' and 'drag and drop' a 'saved search' into the dashboard. Advisor will automatically visualize its result for you in a Tile.

You can modify how you want to visualize the tile. You can also add thresholds to your visualizations to see what needs special attention in your environment at a glance.

If you want to rearrange the tile positions, you can do that too!

Click on the tile to pivot/drill into the saved search.

Let us know what you think in the Feedback Forum!

This is just a start. Many more improvements for Dashboarding are coming. With Saved Search, Log Collection of Events & IIS Log, and now Dashboarding – we are steadily building on our vision of enabling you to create your own intelligence pack.

Stay tuned.
