Filters a record set for data with a case-sensitive search string.
has_cs searches for indexed terms, where an indexed term is three or more characters. If your term is fewer than three characters, the query scans the values in the column, which is slower than looking up the term in the term index.
The following table compares the
has operators using the abbreviations provided:
- RHS = right-hand side of the expression
- LHS = left-hand side of the expression
||Right-hand-side (RHS) is a whole term in left-hand-side (LHS)||No||
||RHS isn't a full term in LHS||No||
||RHS is a whole term in LHS||Yes||
||RHS isn't a full term in LHS||Yes||
For more information about other operators and to determine which operator is most appropriate for your query, see datatype string operators.
Performance depends on the type of search and the structure of the data. For best practices, see Query best practices.

|T||string||✓||The tabular input whose records are to be filtered.|
|Column||string||✓||The column used to filter the records.|
|Expression||scalar or tabular||✓||An expression for which to search. If the value is a tabular expression and has multiple columns, the first column is used.|
Rows in T for which the predicate is
StormEvents | summarize event_count=count() by State | where State has_cs "FLORIDA"
State values are capitalized, searching for a lowercase string with the same value, such as "florida", won't yield any results.
