Over the last 12 months, Operations Management Suite (OMS) monitoring, management, and security capabilities have been incorporated into the Azure portal. We’ve also enhanced the Azure portal with many new features and capabilities.
Because the Azure portal fully replaces it, the OMS portal will be retired on January 15, 2019. You can continue to use your existing services and licensing in the Azure portal.
