Understand the Streaming Analytics Workflow


In Azure Stream Analytics, a job is a unit of execution. A Stream Analytics job pipeline consists of three parts:

  • An input that provides the source of the data stream.
  • A transformation query that acts on the input. For example, a transformation query could aggregate the data.
  • An output that identifies the destination of the transformed data.

The Stream Analytics pipeline provides a transformed data flow from input to output, as the following diagram shows.
