How To: Create or Modify a Service Bus Service Namespace
Updated: January 22, 2014
This topic describes how to create a new Service Bus service namespace using the Windows Azure management portal, and how to modify an existing service namespace. You can create one or more service namespaces in your Service Bus subscription.
To create a Service Bus service namespace
Open an Internet browser and visit the Windows Azure Management Portal.
Log on to the Web site using a Windows Live ID. If you do not have a Windows Live ID, click Sign up to create one for yourself.
After you are signed in, you are redirected to the Management Portal page. In the left pane navigation, click Service Bus.
To add a new service namespace, click Create. Or, if you have not yet created any service namespaces, you can click Create a New Namespace in the main portal window.
In the Add a new Namespace box, type a name for your new service namespace. Note that each service namespace must be globally unique so that it can be identified by the service. When you type a name for your service namespace, the portal checks to see if the name is unique and valid. If so, a green check mark appears to indicate that the name is valid.
Note You do not have to use the same service namespace for both client and service applications.
Choose a region in the available dropdown. Then click the OK check mark.
The system creates your service namespace and enables it. Until it is active, its status in the list is set to Activating.
You might have to wait several minutes as the system provisions resources for your account.
To obtain the security credentials for a service namespace
To obtain the credentials associated with a service namespace, such as the default issuer and the default secret key, click the service namespace in the list, and then click Connection Information. You can also obtain the configuration connection string associated with the service namespace. You can copy and paste these values from the Access connection information dialog into any application that requires these credentials.
