PlayFab Explorer

Note

The PlayFab Explorer feature is in public preview. We anticipate ongoing changes to it as we continue gathering feedback and optimizing for customer use.

Overview

The PlayFab Explorer is the primary window into event data collected by your title and services. The data is stored in PlayFab Insights, an in-development offering designed to provide a complete back-end solution for data and analytics. For more information on the PlayFab Insights vision and strategy, see our webinar.

Explorer is designed to let you discover insights in your event data using the Azure Data Explorer query language – a SQL-like language optimized for ad hoc data exploration.

Explorer provides fast indexing and querying on large, diverse data sets. For optimized queries, the engine can query millions of records in a few seconds - a critical capability for games producing high throughput or large volumes of gaming events.

Explorer uses a simplified SQL-like language that's easy to pick up and learn. The intellisense capabilities make it possible for users of all skill levels to author complex queries and render the results in-line.
