Step 1: Create a Service Namespace for the REST Queue and Topic/Subscription Tutorial
Updated: August 26, 2015
This is the first of nine tasks required to create a basic REST-based Microsoft Azure Service Bus queue and topic/subscription service.
The first step is to create a service namespace, and to obtain a Shared Access Signature (SAS) key. A service namespace provides an application boundary for each application exposed through Service Bus. A SAS key is automatically generated by the system when a service namespace is created. The combination of service namespace and SAS key provides a credential for Service Bus to authenticate access to an application.
Expected time to complete: 5 minutes
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 Azure portal, click the name of the service namespace you created in the previous step.
In the shared access key generator section, make a note of the Primary Key associated with the RootManageSharedAccessKey policy, or copy it to the clipboard. You will use this value later in this tutorial.
