View a knowledge store with Storage Explorer


Knowledge store is currently in public preview. Preview functionality is provided without a service level agreement, and is not recommended for production workloads. For more information, see Supplemental Terms of Use for Microsoft Azure Previews. The REST API version 2019-05-06-Preview provides preview features. There is currently limited portal support, and no .NET SDK support.

In this article, you'll learn by example how to connect to and explore a knowledge store using Storage Explorer in the Azure portal.


  • Follow the steps in Create a knowledge store in Azure portal to create the sample knowledge store used in this walkthrough.

  • You will also need the name of the Azure storage account that you used to create the knowledge store, along with its access key from the Azure portal.

View, edit, and query a knowledge store in Storage Explorer

  1. In the Azure portal, open the Storage account that you used to create the knowledge store.

  2. In the storage account's left navigation pane, click Storage Explorer.

  3. Expand the TABLES list to show a list of Azure table projections that were created when you ran the Import Data wizard on your hotel reviews sample data.

Select any table to view the enriched data, including key phrases and sentiment scores.

Clean up

When you're working in your own subscription, it's a good idea at the end of a project to identify whether you still need the resources you created. Resources left running can cost you money. You can delete resources individually or delete the resource group to delete the entire set of resources.

You can find and manage resources in the portal, using the All resources or Resource groups link in the left-navigation pane.

If you are using a free service, remember that you are limited to three indexes, indexers, and data sources. You can delete individual items in the portal to stay under the limit.

Connect this knowledge store to Power BI for deeper analysis, or move forward with code, using the REST API and Postman to create a different knowledge store.
