How do I initially connect OpsCompass: Azure?

OpsCompass needs read-only access to your environment. The individual who typically installs enterprise applications for your company will need to push the button to authorize OpsCompass initially.

1.) The individual who can authorize enterprise applications for your company needs to navigate to OpsCompass as the initial user. This allows OpsCompass to be connected as an enterprise application with read-only access. (After the steps on this page are completed by that individual, anyone given permission by that user can log in to OpsCompass). 

2.) On the “Get Started” sign in page, click the button “Sign In with Microsoft”.
