ServiceBus360 has the capability to send events/messages immediately from the list of event hubs by creating an Activity Configuration. Activity Configuration has been introduced considering the re-usability. 

What is an Activity?

Activities allow you to push sample messages into desired Event Hubs or Queues or Topics. It can be used mainly for testing purposes. Ex: Sending 5000 sample messages into Event Hub with think time, batches, multiple threads etc. You can have multiple activities configured and executed them either instantaneously or via a schedule.

Sending Events to Event Hubs from the Event Hubs list

ServiceBus360 has the option to send events from the listed event hubs by simply entering the desired values and hit the Send button. As every task is processed in the cloud – it will queue the task to a certain queue from where it will be picked up and processed. However, the processing is fast enough and you will be able to see the in-progress activity in “In Progress” tab. Sometimes you may not find an activity in “In Progress” tab if the number of events is too small. As the process is quick – the process might be completed momentarily.


To send events instantly,

  1. Log into your ServiceBus360 account
  2. In the home dashboard screen, click the Manage Namespace button in the Event Hubs namespace pane to navigate to the event hubs dashboard screen.
  3. The event hubs dashboard displays the list of event hubs available in the namespace. 
  4. Click the Extras button (Ellipsis). From the drop down select the Send Events option
  5. In the Send Event blade, enter the message, event count, and other custom properties. Click the Save configuration check box and a friendly name to save the configurations for future use.
  6. Click the Send button to send the Event
