Azure Event Hubs

You can provide a link to your Azure Event Hub to consume messages. This will allow you to use your own front end to capture the events and use NuvIoT to process messages and perform workflows.

You must have an Azure Account and a configured Event Hub.

If you need help getting started, Contact Us and we will put you in touch with one of our implementation partners to help you get going.

The next steps assume that you have been able to successfully Create an Event Hub and have access to the necessary credentials.

First, create a Listener and select the Listener Type of Event Hub.
