Azure Service Bus

Microsoft Azure Service Bus is a fully managed enterprise integration message broker. Service Bus is most commonly used to decouple applications and services from each other, and is a reliable and secure platform for asynchronous data and state transfer.

CAP supports Azure Service Bus as a message transporter.



For the Service Bus pricing layer, CAP requires "standard" or "advanced" to support Topic functionality.

To use Azure Service Bus as a message transport, you need to install the following extensions from NuGet:

PM> Install-Package DotNetCore.CAP.AzureServiceBus

Then you can add memory-based configuration items to the ConfigureServices method of Startup.cs.

public void ConfigureServices(IServiceCollection services)
    // ...

    services.AddCap(x =>
        // x.UseXXX ...

AzureServiceBus Options

The AzureServiceBus configuration options provided directly by the CAP are as follows:

ConnectionString Endpoint address string
TopicPath Topic entity path string cap
ManagementTokenProvider Token provider ITokenProvider null
