Azure Event Hubs Node
The Azure Event Hubs Node allows a workflow to publish a message to an Azure Event Hub.
Configuration for the node is broken up into four sections …
First, choose where to send your message.
Choose an Integration: Retrieves your Azure Event Hubs configuration from the selected Integration.
- Integration: Choose which of your application’s Azure Event Hubs integrations you would like to publish the message on. Note: Integrations are not accessible from Edge Workflows, so only direct configuration is available to them.
Enter Credentials: Configure the Azure Event Hubs connection directly within the node.
- Event Hub Name Template: The name of the event hub to send messages to.
- Connection String Template: The connection string scoped to either an event hub namespace, or to a specific event hub. In order to properly connect with Losant, the access policy associated with the connection string must have
Next, define the content of the message itself.
- Partition Key Template: Optionally, you may provide a partition key to send the message to a specific partition for data organization purposes.
Message Data Method: Select the format of the message template:
- String Template accepts a string template for the message - or a plain string.
- Payload Path accepts a payload path for the message.
- Message Template / Payload Path: Enter the message data in the selected format.
Optionally, you may include include some additional properties along with your message in the form of key/value pairs. There are three methods by which you may include the attributes:
- Individual Fields allows you to enter each key/value separately, with the key and the value both accepting string templates.
- JSON Template accepts an object of key/value pairs in one block. The object may not contain any nested properties, and Handlebars helpers may be used for either the keys or values.
- Payload Path accepts a payload path to an object of key/value pairs on your payload.
Optionally, you can store the message response on the current payload by entering a payload path here. The value will be an object with the following properties:
success: The value is
trueif the message was successfully sent, and
falseif the message failed to send.
error: If the message failed to send, the result will include an
errorobject with properties detailing why the sending failed.
