You are absolutely right, that's a very valid question.

I can share that we're working on official name for the language, and currently refer to it either as "Log Analytics Query Language" or by its code name KQL (stands for “Kusto Query Language”, Kusto being the internal project name).


Hope to share some more news on this soon!




Hi @Noa Kuperberg.


Wow "Kusto" is code name of "Log Analytics Query Language" !?


Does "Kusto" same "Azure Kusto" in Microsoft Flow's connector ?
