This command saves the contents of the pipeline to a file. Use this in combination with the to json, to csv, … commands to save the contents in the specified format.

Syntax: save (path) {flags}



  treat values as-is rather than auto-converting based on file extension


You can save the name of files in a directory like this:

> ls | where type == File | select name | save filenames.csv

Or you can format it in supported formats using one of the to commands:

> ls | where type == File | select name | to csv | save filenames

filename.csv and filenames are both csv formatted files. Nu auto-converts the format if a supported file extension is given.
