Is there a way to get customEvent/name through select param in Azure Application Insights REST API GET /events? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm trying out the Azure Application Insights REST API GET /events query through the (https://dev.applicationinsights.io/apiexplorer/events) and I can get a full query working fine and works with most $select parameters like 'user/id' but whenever I try 'customEvent/name' it brings back a null value for the item when I know there is a value whenever I get the full query with no $select parameter. Is there another way to grab this value through the select param? I'm using the select param in order to filter down the number of columns brought back that I don't need.

    Here is an example with a demo project : ( https://dev.applicationinsights.io/apiexplorer/events?appId=DEMO_APP&apiKey=DEMO_KEY&eventType=customEvents&$select=customEvent%2Fname )

  • Michael,

    Are you using the same request as the previous poster? If not, can you please share your request string?

    Using the Demo App I am able to get the data using


    which is slightly different from what the previous poster was using but is what is generated by the API Explorer for custom events.
