Stream Analytics

Azure Stream Analytics is a fully managed real-time stream computation service hosted in Microsoft Azure, which provides highly resilient, low latency, and scalable complex event processing of streaming data. Azure Stream Analytics enables developers to easily combine streams of data with historic records or reference data to derive business insights easily and quickly.

How can we improve Microsoft Azure Stream Analytics?

  1. use SQL Azure as reference data

    it would be nice to use a table in a SQL Azure DB as reference data

    • Autoscale for streaming unit

      At present, Stream analytics throws memory exception when there is not enough streaming units. It should automatically scale based on the streaming unit requirement.

      • Take input from DocumentDb

        Currently Stream Analytics accepts data from Blob storage. Support to get data from DocumentDB should be added.

        • Provide PowerShell and REST API for creating Power BI output

          Currently you have PowerShell and REST APIs for creating outputs, but I don't believe it supports creating a Power BI output. You can only do that via the management portal. I need to be able to do this programmatically including the authentication with Power BI during setup.

          • Stream into existing Power BI Datasets

            Hey,
            it would be great to have the possibility to create a dataset in PowerBi Desktop and use as output in ASA.

            • Allow to read/write event data properties from/to eventhub input/output

              For example when we want to duplicate data from one event hub to another (for example from production to development event hub), the only option is to copy the event data payload, but no option to copy the event data properties as well.

              see http://stackoverflow.com/questions/35590255/stream-analytics-and-azure-eventhub for similar issue others had.

                • Please provide support for Azure Data Lake Store output via ARM templates

                  Currently we are not able to create Azure Data Lake (or Power BI) output's via ARM templates because ADL and PowerBI require interactive authentication currently.

                  For our continious delivery we would like you to enable this.

                    • On-prem SQL as input and output

                      Would like to push my data from on prem SQL -> Stream analytics + ML model -> Output of ML model back to on-prem SQL table -> Host power BI on corp. By this way, any PII/HBI data can still be on-prem and other numeric data can flow via the cloud and back. If the channel from cloud to on-prem sql can be secure and easily established, it would greatly help.

                              An option to partition the output Blobs according to GROUP BY Statements (or something similar) would be really useful. For example group by customer_id -> results in prefixed blob CSVs for each customer. Something like that would be greatly appreciated!

                              • Add a simple Datetime format function

                                I need to insert the timestamp as a column in a Azure Table with the following .NET format ("yyyy-MM-dd-HH-mm"), I thought the CONCAT and DATENAME/DATEPART functions would help me, and I ended up with this, but it is not producing the output I need:

                                CONCAT(DATENAME(yyyy,System.Timestamp),'-',CAST(DATEPART(mm,System.Timestamp) AS NVARCHAR(MAX)),'-',DATENAME(dd,System.Timestamp),'-',DATENAME(HH,System.Timestamp),'-',DATENAME(mi,System.Timestamp)),

                                "2015-10-12T05:17:37.807Z" is formatted like: '2015-10-12-5-17" and I am expecting "2015-10-12-17-17"

                                • Allow setting the Properties when outputting to Service Bus Topic

                                  Currently there is an output type of Service Bus Topic. Would be great if we could control which of the data from the stream get into the values of Properties. Then the clients subscribed on that Topic could use SqlFilter to listen only on data they need.
                                  Example:
                                  20 fields come with the telemetry data where DeviceID and DataPointID are to be put into Properties.

                                      • Time series database sink

                                        It would be great to be able to stream the data into a time series database. Currently Azure does not have support for time series, but it would be nice to see support for KairosDB or OpenTSB

                                        • Ability to output data to dynamically generated tables.

                                          We want incomming data for multiple of our customers input through one event hub and then output to a table per customer. The tables don't need to be created by stream analytics, we can do that from code when the customer creates an account with us. I just need to be able to direct the output to the correct table from my Stream Analytics query.
