Log Analytics schema

Log Analytics inherits the schema from Azure Monitor with the following exceptions:

  • The first letter in each column name is capitalized. For example, the column name "correlationId" in Monitor is "CorrelationId" in Log Analytics.

  • There's no "Level" column.

  • The dynamic "properties" column is preserved as the following dynamic JSON blob type.

    Azure Monitor column Log Analytics column Type
