    Hello @Diptesh Kumar

    Thank you for reaching out to the Microsoft Q&A platform.'

    Method 1:

    You can download CSV results from the Azure portal, browse to the Azure Resource Graph Explorer and run a query. On the toolbar, click Download as CSV.


    CSV export result size limitation

    When using the comma-separated value (CSV) export functionality of Azure Resource Graph Explorer, the result set is limited to 55,000 records. This is a platform limit that cannot be overridden by filing an Azure support ticket.

    Alternative methods using cmdlets:

    Method 1:
    If you are using Azure CLI(cloud shell) use the below command in PowerShell mode to run the graph query and export the results as csv

    Ex: Search-AzGraph -Query "Resources" -first 1000 | epcsv .\testgraph.csv -NoType

    Method 2:

    If you are interested to do it through a bash in azure CLI(cloudshell). Unfortunately we do not have cmdlet/function to convert tsv to csv.
