Step 1: Create a Service Namespace for the REST Queue and Topic/Subscription Tutorial
Updated: January 22, 2014
This is the first of nine tasks required to create a basic REST-based Windows Azure Service Bus queue and topic/subscription service.
The first step is to create a service namespace, and to obtain a shared secret key. A service namespace provides an application boundary for each application exposed through Service Bus. A shared secret key is automatically generated by the system when a service namespace is created. The combination of service namespace and shared secret key provides a credential for Service Bus to authenticate access to an application.

For complete information about how to create a service namespace, see the topic How To: Create or Modify a Service Bus Service Namespace in the Managing Service Bus Service Namespaces section.
In the main window of the Windows Azure Management Portal, click the name of the service namespace you created in the previous step.
At the bottom of the portal window, click Access Key.
In the Connect to your namespace window, make a note of the default issuer and default key, or copy them to the clipboard. You will use these values later in this tutorial.
