    Hi @ADX ,

    Thank you for posting query in Microsoft Q& A Platform.

    Azure Data explorer command activity will simply run your passed commands and returns output of your query command in to activity output.

    In your case your command is not returning data related to how many records are appended in the table. Hence you are not seeing them in the activity output.

    Kindly make sure your query command returns the values what you are expecting in Activity output.
