Exporting historical Application Insights data

Copper Contributor

Hi folks,


We recently setup Continuous Export for one of our Application Insights instances. This is great in helping us to retain analytics, however the issue we're having is that it only captures data from the point in time it was enabled. We need to capture historical data from the Application Insights instance.


I have found some official documentation on exporting historical data (Continuous data export - Azure Data Explorer | Microsoft Docs), however I'm unclear on where to run the `.show continuous-export` command and where to even get the name of the continuous export.


Has anyone figured this out?

Any luck with this issue?
I am looking for a solution as well to export historic data as well from application insights

@SAVITAMITTAL unfortunately not.


Did you find a way to export historical data?

Did anyone find a solution yet?
