Azure Monitor log queries

Azure Monitor logs are built on Azure Data Explorer, and Azure Monitor log queries use a version of the same Kusto query language. The Kusto query language documentation has all of the details for the language and should be your primary resource for writing Azure Monitor log queries. This page provides links to other resources for learning how to write queries and on differences with the Azure Monitor implementation of the language.


This article was recently updated to use the term Azure Monitor logs instead of Log Analytics. Log data is still stored in a Log Analytics workspace and is still collected and analyzed by the same Log Analytics service. We are updating the terminology to better reflect the role of logs in Azure Monitor. See Azure Monitor terminology changes for details.
