Version — February 1, 2019



Version – October 15, 2018

  • ADQL now offers string manipulation functions.
    • String functions can transform any event data that resides in the Analytics Events Service. 

    • An important use case is doing ad hoc data transformation when data has been collected in the wrong structure, serialization, or format. In previous releases, fixing incorrectly-collected data required adjusting agent settings.

    • With string manipulation functions, you can

      • hone in on a substring() by working with string length() and/or the indexOf() characters in a string

        • for example, you can extract the domain name from a URL
      • combine multiple strings using the concat() operator

        • for example, you can combine values from multiple fields into a single value

      • trim() whitespace from the beginnings and ends of fields.

  • When creating a Business Journey, you must use the same data type for the Primary Keys of all Milestones in that Business Journey.

    • Previously, you were able to use different data types, which was unsupported.


Version – September 5, 2018

  • In Log Analytics, you can exclude, or blacklist files from the defined source rule(s). Input the relative path of the file(s) to exclude, using wildcards to exclude multiple files.
