Azure Event Hubs
Below instructions help you connecting your Azure Event Hubs to KPN Things.
Don't have an Azure Event Hubs yet? Head on over to the Microsoft documentation on Azure Event Hubs:
The following parameters are available to connect an Azure Event Hubs
The name of the destination
My Event Hub
Description of the destination
URL of your Event Hubs Namespace
The name of your Event Hubs Namespace
The name of your Event Hubs Instance
SAS Policy name for key with claim "Manage"
Primary key for used SAS Policy
*) required value †) secret value, write only, not returned by our systems
Open the Overview page of your Event Hubs Namespace in your Azure Portal. You will find the host name of your namespace (#1 in the screenshot) and the Event Hubs Namespace (#2 in the screenshot) as highlighted in the screenshot below.
Can't see the Host name? In the Dutch user interface, it is not visible. Switch to English language to see the host name in the Overview page.
Now, use this value to make the following input values for the Azure Event Hubs destination configuration:
- Host name: should be of the form
https://X.servicebus.windows.net, so put
https://before your host name and you're done.
- Event Hubs Namespace: should be the name of your namespace.
Continue by clicking on Event Hubs under Entities in the left menu of your Namespace. Select the Event Hub Instance you would like to connect to. This opens the Overview page of your Event Hubs Instance. Here you will find the name of your Event Hubs Instance, also known as Event Space Name, as highlighted in the screenshot below:
Open the Shared access policies page for your Event Hubs Instance. Here you can view and add the access policies of your Event Hub. Open the policy you want KPN Things to use to access your Event Hub. This will give you a view like in the screenshot below:
- SAS Policy name: #1 in the screenshot above highlights the SAS key name of a selected Policy.
- SAS Primary key: #2 in the screenshot above highlights the SAS key of a selected Policy.
All IoT Data from devices linked to the destination is forwarded to the Event Hub in SenML JSON format. Since the Azure Event Hubs in itself does not allow you to look into the data coming from KPN Things, we give two easy examples of how to debug IoT data landing in your Event Hub.
Using the Capture feature of your Event Hub, you can store incoming data in an Azure Storage Container. In the screenshot below it is shown how raw LoRa payload can be found in the
avrofiles generated by the capture feature.
You can use SQL-like queries to explore your Event Hub data in the Process data feature. In the screenshot below it is shown how raw LoRa payload can be found in the data exporer.
