General availability: Azure portal updates for Azure Stream Analytics
1. Power BI output
Previously, if you wanted to use Power BI as an output for your Stream Analytics job, you needed to go to the Azure classic portal and configure the output there. With this update, you no longer need to switch context.
2. Data Lake output
Similarly, you no longer need to switch to the classic portal to set up an output for Azure Data Lake.
3. Sample input
Finally, this update also provides you the ability to capture sample data from an input source. By using this feature, you can connect to an input, such as an IoT hub. By using the configuration options provided, you can select the range of data from the input source to sample.
That’s it, for now. We’re excited about these updates because we’re closing the parity gap between the classic and current portals. Soon, you won’t need to use the classic portal.
