Usean Azure Service Bus Topic as Stream Analytics Input Source
We have a number of Services which are Ingressed into Azure using Service Bus Topics, the use of topics is due to a the data stream being used in a number of different parallel processing paths, It would be great to be able to use use a topic as an input to a stream analytics job, (currently to achieve the same effect we have to use an API APP web role to receive the data from the topic and then immediately send the message onwards to a separate event hub which is then setup to be an input to a stream analytics job, a rather messy solution that incurs additional cost
The alternative of using a separate event hub is a workaround we recommend. At this point in time, we don’t have plans of adding ingress support for Azure Service Bus Topic. But we will keep listening and incorporate feedback to our product roadmap!
I have the same issue and considering a similar workaround. Upvoted.
