How can we improve Application Insights?

Export past events in same format as continuous export

After I turn on continuous export I would like to do a one time pull of event data that occurred before continuous export was enabled. This feature would export the data in the same format provided by continuous export to make it easy to ingest into a downstream reporting system.

    There is no easy way to get the past data after you enable continuous export. I wrote a script that fetches a data that goes back every 30 minutes. It will reiterate till the last record available in Application Insights. It creates a blob file for each 30 minutes of available data going backwards and uploads into the blob storage. But the process is way too slow and unreliable for large number of records.

    I would like to see this as well. I understand that there are alternative strategies that can be used here, but I believe this would be a value add from a usability standpoint if nothing else.
