I'm trying to set this app up with an event hub, I have verified on my heavy forwarder box that I can use the Azure example python scripts to receive events from the event hub so I have verified connectivity and credentials are OK:

[9:59:58] (ssh) (SUDO) root@prod-backups:~ # python recieve.py        
Received: <azure.eventhub.common.Offset object at 0x7f7ee2456510>, 0
Received: <azure.eventhub.common.Offset object at 0x7f7ee2456610>, 1
Received 2 messages in 0.0514070987701 seconds

However, when I attempt to connect to the exact same event hub with the same credentials from the Splunk app it does not appear to be connecting.

With logs similar to this:

googling for the error itself suggests a firewall issue specifically but as mentioned using an example MS python script works fine with same credentials/endpoint - seems some other error or config breaking?

I'd like to add that since this question was published - this app was archived - app author is obviously not interested in supporting it

Did you ever find a solution to this issue? We're getting the same thing. We checked the firewall, and it looks correct. Thanks.

no - i had to go and use the Capture based splunk app for now - i think it comes down to the data coming off the event hub must be in a specific format with some specific fields present that at the very least in my case are not present

Thanks for responding. Which is the capture app? We tried using the event hubs integrator app from the same author with no luck.

we did some custom tweaks to not hardcode sourcetype, host and index though so that the inputs config could properly override and we could parse the events correctly

Great, thanks for the tip. We'll give it another go.
