What is IoT?

The Internet of Things (IoT) is a system of interrelated computing devices, mechanical and digital machines, objects, animals or people that are provided with unique identifiers and the ability to transfer data over a network without requiring human-to-human or human-to-computer interaction.

What are Event Hubs?

Azure Event Hubs are highly scalable data streaming platforms and event ingestion services capable of receiving and processing millions of events per second. Event Hubs can process and store events, data, or telemetry produced by distributed software and devices.Then it also enables the behavior tracking in mobile apps, traffic information from web farms, in-game event capture in console games, or telemetry collected from industrial machines, connected vehicles, or other devices.

Follow these steps to create an Event Hubs in Azure Portal

Sign into Azure Portal.

In the Azure Portal dashbord, click +(New) at the top left of the screen and select "Internet of Things", then click Event Hubs.

In the "Create namespace" blade, enter a namespace name. The system checks if the name is available or not. Then, choose the pricing tier (Standard) and press "Select".

And also, choose an Azure subscription, resource group, and location in which you want to create the resource. Click "Create" to create the namespace.

After a few minutes, and after the deployment succeeded notification, it opens our Event Hub that we just created.

In the Namespace blade, click Event Hubs on the top of the blade and choose "Add Event Hub".

Give the desired name for your Event Hub, then click "Create".

In the list of Event Hubs, it shows the newly created event hub name for additional use.

Press "Shared access policies" and then click "RootManageSharedAccessKey" in the namespace blade.

Click "Copy" to copy the RootManageSharedAccessKey connection string to the clipboard for further use.


I hope, you understood how to create an Event Hub using IoT Even Hubs Service in Azure Portal.
