Create a Service Bus authorization rule for namespace and queue using an Azure Resource Manager template

This article shows how to use an Azure Resource Manager template that creates an authorization rule for a Service Bus namespace and queue. You will learn how to define which resources are deployed and how to define parameters that are specified when the deployment is executed. You can use this template for your own deployments, or customize it to meet your requirements.

For more information about creating templates, please see Authoring Azure Resource Manager templates.

For the complete template, see the Service Bus auth rule template on GitHub.

Note

The following Azure Resource Manager templates are available for download and deployment.

To check for the latest templates, visit the Azure Quickstart Templates gallery and search for "Service Bus."

What will you deploy?

With this template, you will deploy a Service Bus authorization rule for a namespace and messaging entity (in this case, a queue).

This template uses Shared Access Signature (SAS) for authentication. SAS enables applications to authenticate to Service Bus using an access key configured on the namespace, or on the messaging entity (queue or topic) with which specific rights are associated. You can then use this key to generate a SAS token that clients can in turn use to authenticate to Service Bus.

To run the deployment automatically, click the following button:

Deploy to Azure

Parameters

With Azure Resource Manager, you define parameters for values you want to specify when the template is deployed. The template includes a section called Parameters that contains all of the parameter values. You should define a parameter for those values that will vary based on the project you are deploying or based on the environment you are deploying to. Do not define parameters for values that will always stay the same. Each parameter value is used in the template to define the resources that are deployed.

The template defines the following parameters.

serviceBusNamespaceName

The name of the Service Bus namespace to create.

"serviceBusNamespaceName": {
"type": "string"
}

namespaceAuthorizationRuleName

The name of the authorization rule for the namespace.

"namespaceAuthorizationRuleName ": {
"type": "string"
}

serviceBusQueueName

The name of the queue in the Service Bus namespace.

"serviceBusQueueName": {
"type": "string"
}

serviceBusApiVersion

The Service Bus API version of the template.

"serviceBusApiVersion": {
"type": "string"
}

Resources to deploy

Creates a standard Service Bus namespace of type Messaging, and a Service Bus authorization rule for namespace and entity.

Commands to run deployment

To deploy the resources to Azure, you must be logged in to your Azure account and you must use the Azure Resource Manager module. To learn about using Azure Resource Manager with either Azure PowerShell or Azure CLI, see:

The following examples assume you already have a resource group in your account with the specified name.

PowerShell

New-AzureRmResourceGroupDeployment -ResourceGroupName \<resource-group-name\> -TemplateFile <https://raw.githubusercontent.com/azure/azure-quickstart-templates/master/301-servicebus-create-authrule-namespace-and-queue/azuredeploy.json>

Azure CLI

azure config mode arm

azure group deployment create \<my-resource-group\> \<my-deployment-name\> --template-uri <https://raw.githubusercontent.com/azure/azure-quickstart-templates/master/301-servicebus-create-authrule-namespace-and-queue/azuredeploy.json>
