Current Limitations and Known Bugs

The older Search API has serious limitations; we strongly recommend you to use the Search Job API with the SearchJobClient class instead. If you continue to use the deprecated SearchClient class, you will have the following limitations:

  • A maximum of 100k log lines are returned at once. If you need more data you can issue subsequent queries covering a smaller time frame.
  • Queries need to complete in 60 seconds. Otherwise the session will timeout and no results are returned.
