Azure Event Hubs

Version 24.1.8910


Azure Event Hubs


You can use the Azure Event Hubs connector from the CData Sync application to move data from any supported source to the Azure Event Hubs destination. To do so, you need to add the connector, authenticate to the connector, and complete your connection.

Establish a Connection

To allow Sync to use data from Azure Event Hubs, you first must establish a connection to Azure Event Hubs. Follow these steps to connect Azure Event Hubs to your Sync account:

  1. Open the Connections page of the Sync dashboard.

  2. Click Add Connection to open the Select Connectors page.

  3. Click the Destinations tab and locate the Azure Event Hubs row.

  4. Click the Configure Connection icon at the end of that row. If you do not see the Configure Connection icon, you need to add the connector according to the instructions in Connections.

  5. Enter connection settings on the Settings tab:

    • Connection Name - Enter a connection name of your choice.

    • Endpoint - Enter the endpoint of your Azure Event Hubs instance.

    • Shared Access Key - Enter the name of your shared access key (for example, RootManageSharedAccessKey).

    • Shared Access Key Name - Enter the shared access key that you use to authenticate to your Azure Event Hubs account.

    • Entity Path - Enter the entity path to which you want to direct your messages. If you do not specify a path, Sync uses the table’s name as the entity path.

    • Produce Meta - Specify whether you want to send a meta message while the outgoing message is produced. The default specification is False.

      Note: Select True for this setting only when you Serialization Format is set to CVS.

    • Serialization Format - Select the format in which you want to serialize or deserialize the incoming or outgoing message. The default format is CVS.

  6. Click Create & Test to create the connection.

  7. Define advanced connection settings on the Advanced tab. (In most cases, though, you should not need these settings.)
