August 2017

Early August an upgrade rolled out to Azure Log Analytics to provide powerful search, smart analytics, and deep insights. This upgrade included an interactive query language and advanced analytics portal, based on the same scalable data store as Azure Application Insights. As with Application Insights, all queries possible via the UX can also be performed using a REST API, enabling customers to integrate the same Azure Log Analytics capabilities into their own solutions.


  • Initial v1 version of Azure Log Analytics REST API for /query path
  • Support for AAD user authentication to OMS user workspaces
  • Support for API key authentication to OMS Sample workspace
  • Support for cross-workspace query
  • Support $batch for multiple API calls in a single server round-trip
