  6. In the portal list of namespaces, click the newly created namespace.

  7. Click Shared access policies, and then click RootManageSharedAccessKey.

  8. Click the copy button to copy the RootManageSharedAccessKey connection string to the clipboard. Save this connection string in a temporary location, such as Notepad, to use later.
