Azure Data Explorer Connector

The Azure Data Explorer Connector allows you to connect to an Azure Data Explorer instance and retrieve data as requested by the Application.

The Azure Data Explorer platform is a fully managed, high-performance, big data analytics platform that makes it easy to analyze high volumes of data in near real-time.

Please see their store page and documentation for more information about the Azure Data Explorer platform.

Read on for examples, its configuration, and release notes.

Live Updates

This Connector supports Live Updates, i.e. it can update the entity to display the most up-to-date information.

This capability is available when the Connector is configured for time series data (See Is Time Series) and polling (See Enable Polling).


The user must have credentials to an Azure subscription with permission to read Azure Data Explorer instances.

Azure Data Explorer's Kusto limits the number of records returned to 500,000, and the overall data size for those records to 64 MB. Read more about limits on the result set size here.
