bear with me im kind of new...
So i have a file transfer application with a log table and i want to use this data(it has a time stamp on it) in a report/dashboard... List the "transfers" in a simple report etc
I know i can import custom logs but that only allows files, not tables in a db.
Do i simply do a join in Kusto? Or is there some how I can import it and use like a custom log. I would like it to "upsert" or maintain the log also.

Okay I exported the csv file to blob storage with ADF and I am able to ingest the file into a kusto query. I used :
externaldata (col1:string, col2:string)
[h'http//<full URL from Shared access Signature generated in azure storage explorer>']
with (format='csv', ignorefirstrecord='true')
this read the data in and I was able use it from there. There is "sql_request plugin" for Azure Data explorer but it doesnt work in monitor. I think there might be another route with the connection string method where you can directly query so im checking on that but this worked so far.

I would like to see the sql request plugin available in Monitor. I was honestly surprised it's not available yet.
Oh looks like it won't happen possible due to security issues. She explains the options.
