Create an Azure Event Hubs source connection in the UI

Source connectors in Adobe Experience Platform provide the ability to ingest externally sourced data on a scheduled basis. This tutorial provides steps for authenticating an Azure Event Hubs (hereinafter referred to as “Event Hubs”) source connector using the Platform user interface.

Getting started

This tutorial requires a working understanding of the following components of Adobe Experience Platform:

If you already have a valid Event Hubs connection, you may skip the remainder of this document and proceed to the tutorial on configuring a dataflow.

Gather required credentials

In order to authenticate your Event Hubs source connector, you must provide values for the following connection properties:

Credential Description
sasKeyName The name of the authorization rule, which is also known as the SAS key name.
sasKey The primary key of the Event Hubs namespace. The sasPolicy that the sasKey corresponds to must have manage rights configured in order for the Event Hubs list to be populated.
namespace The namespace of the Event Hubs you are accessing.

For more information about these values, refer to this Event Hubs document.

Connect your Event Hubs account

Once you have gathered your required credentials, you can follow the steps below to link your Event Hubs account to Platform.

Log in to Adobe Experience Platform and then select Sources from the left navigation bar to access the Sources workspace. The Catalog tab displays a variety of sources for which you can create an account with.

You can select the appropriate category from the catalog on the left-hand side of your screen. Alternatively, you can find the specific source you wish to work with using the search option.

Under the Cloud Storage category, select Azure Event Hubs. If this is your first time using this connector, select Configure. Otherwise, select Add data to create a new Event Hubs connector.

The Connect to Azure Event Hubs dialog appears. On this page, you can either use new credentials or existing credentials.

New account

If you are using new credentials, select New Account. On the input form that appears, provide a name, an optional description, and your Event Hubs credentials. When finished, select Connect and then allow some time for the new connection to establish.

Existing account

To connect an existing account, select the Event Hubs account you want to connect with, then select Next to proceed.

Next steps

By following this tutorial, you have connected your Event Hubs account to Platform. You can now continue on to the next tutorial and configure a dataflow to bring data from your cloud storage into Platform.
