- Select the EventHub where your data to retrieve resides.
- Navigate to "Consumer groups" to get the name of the "consumer group" needed.
If only SkyFormation is going to read data from the EventHub then you can use the default

a queue, so if 2 consumers are using the same consumer group both will miss data.
