I am wondering if there is a limit to how many types there can be in a TSI environment?

Hi Tman915,

Is there something specific you are looking for or are inquiring about? The following document details quite a bit about planning your environment: Plan your Azure Time Series Insights GA environment

Please provide additional information that is not detailed or discussed sufficiently.

Thank you,

The maximum number of types per environment is 1,000.

The Types API enables create, read, update, and delete on Time Series Types and their associated variables.

Please see Limits for more details.

I can't seem to find my answer in there. I am wondering if there is a max amount of "Types" I can have in my environment. Can I have 1000 different types or is there a limit to that?

Here is a link to my image (I can't post on here):

Thank you! I see it in the limits section. This page hadn't refreshed so I had not seen the new reply with the "Limits" link.

Is there a limit to the amount of categories you can have per type? I see there is a limit for the amount of variables you can have but not a limit for categories.

I am not aware of such limits. Can you elaborate what exactly are you referring to? Do you have a specific scenario that you are looking to implement and looking for limits? Please do share more details so that we can help you accordingly.

When I create a type I add multiple categories to each type. As an example for one I have manual, auto, cascade, prog-auto, etc... For each type I may need a lot of different categories and I was wondering if there was a limit on how many categories there can be for each type.

I found out it is 100. Thank you for your help.
