Vendor installation instructions

NOTE: This data connector depends on a parser based on a Kusto Function to work as expected which is deployed as part of the solution. To view the function code in Log Analytics, open Log Analytics/Microsoft Sentinel Logs blade, click Functions and search for the alias MarkLogicAudit and load the function code or click here on the second line of the query, enter the hostname(s) of your MarkLogicAudit device(s) and any other unique identifiers for the logstream. The function usually takes 10-15 minutes to activate after solution installation/update.
