A GUI based approach to create PowerShell rules and monitors
Within the GUI there is no easy way to create PowerShell script monitors and rules. Please add a GUI driven wizard to create those.
The MP mentioned below by Squaredup has moved to a sister company Cookdown, here is the updated lnk for people looking for a solution

Have at look at Squared Up solution:
it works great
Squared Up will soon release an MP that does just that, will be released on 28th of July I believe. I've been testing the functionalities of it and it works great!

If different wiz-kids around the globe can come up with sample management packs to solve this then surely MS have to be up to it as well.

It looks like you can just create a PowerShell script within the default two-state timed script monitor. I've been doing it for a while now and it seems to work on SCOM 2012 R2 UR8.

Need a GUI to create Registry monitoring and Powershell script based monitors or rules
I agree they need to find an easier way. Especially since I'm no script master.

I was just going to suggest this as well. I have wanted this a LONG time on creating Timed Script Two State monitors where there is a radio button or drop down or something that I can select VBScript (default) OR switch to PowerShell and copy/paste my PowerShell script into the body portion of the Monitor Wizard and have it run off PowerShell instead

While this is possible using other tools it's time Microsoft added this as native functionality.

Huge +1 on this. Wei Lim has created a Powershell MP which partly gives you this feature: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/wei_out_there_with_system_center/archive/2015/07/10/opsmgr-new-sample-wizard-to-create-powershell-monitors-in-the-ops-console.aspx
