Recommended code changes to accommodate updates to Azure Time Series Insights
Published date: 17 June, 2020
Azure Time Series Insights Preview is introducing support for an additional Data Type, Long (previously TSI supported only Double). This will impact you in certain cases and you will need to update Time Series Model variable expressions and/or client-code. This feature only will be applied to Preview pay-as-you-go environments, if you have a Standard (S) SKU Time Series Insights environment, you will not be affected.
This change impacts you in the following cases:
- If you currently use Time Series Model variables and send only integral data types in your telemetry data.
- If you currently use Time Series Model variables and send both integral and nonintegral data types in your telemetry data.
- If you use categorical variables mapping integer values to categories.
- If you are nearing the 1,000-property name limit in Warm Store (WS) and send both integral and nonintegral data-- property count can be viewed as a metric in the Azure Portal.
If any of the above cases apply to you, this article demonstrates how to apply the recommended code changes. This change will go into effect 29th June 2020. If updates are not made, note that some of your time series accessed via the query APIs or Time Series Insights explorer will return null (i.e. it will appear as if there is no data in the explorer).
If you have any questions or concerns regarding this change, submit a support ticket through the Azure Portal and mention this blog.
