How to Build and View Reports using Application Insights Reporting System from Blob Storage?

Jignesh Desai 101 Reputation points


Azure Application Insights does not allow telemetry data retention for more then few days/months, however it has option called "Continuous export" which exports data into Azure Storage Blobs, so question is how do I build reports using data stored in blobs? Is there a way to use Azure Application Insight's Reporting system itself to point to blob storage as "Data Source" and see reports like User Flow, Session, Events, Failures ETC ?

How are others later building reports on Azure Application Insights data that is exported using "Continuous export" option ?

    Hello @Jignesh Desai , if your goal is to be able to build and generate reports based on your blob data then I recommend using PowerBI solution.
    Here's a detailed guide by Nisarg Upadhyay on how to achive your goal.

    Let me know if this solution works for you. If not, happy to work with you to explore other options.
