When creating an event subscription, you can customize the settings for event delivery. This article shows you how to set up a dead letter location and customize the retry settings. For information about these features, see Event Grid message delivery and retry.

To learn about message delivery, retries, and dead-lettering, see the conceptual article: Event Grid message delivery and retry.

Set dead-letter location

To set a dead letter location, you need a storage account for holding events that can't be delivered to an endpoint. The examples get the resource ID of an existing storage account. They create an event subscription that uses a container in that storage account for the dead-letter endpoint.

Note

Lettering grids
  • Create a storage account and a blob container in the storage before running commands in this article.
  • The Event Grid service creates blobs in this container. The names of blobs will have the name of the Event Grid subscription with all the letters in upper case. For example, if the name of the subscription is My-Blob-Subscription, names of the dead letter blobs will have MY-BLOB-SUBSCRIPTION (myblobcontainer/MY-BLOB-SUBSCRIPTION/2019/8/8/5/111111111-1111-1111-1111-111111111111.json). This behavior is to protect against differences in case handling between Azure services.

Azure CLI

To turn off dead-lettering, rerun the command to create the event subscription but don't provide a value for deadletter-endpoint. You don't need to delete the event subscription.

Note

If you are using Azure CLI on your local machine, use Azure CLI version 2.0.56 or greater. For instructions on installing the latest version of Azure CLI, see Install the Azure CLI.

PowerShell

To turn off dead-lettering, rerun the command to create the event subscription but don't provide a value for DeadLetterEndpoint. You don't need to delete the event subscription.

Note

If you are using Azure Poweshell on your local machine, use Azure PowerShell version 1.1.0 or greater. Download and install the latest Azure PowerShell from Azure downloads.

Set retry policy

When creating an Event Grid subscription, you can set values for how long Event Grid should try to deliver the event. By default, Event Grid tries for 24 hours (1440 minutes), or 30 times. You can set either of these values for your event grid subscription. The value for event time-to-live must be an integer from 1 to 1440. The value for max retries must be an integer from 1 to 30.

You can't configure the retry schedule.

Azure CLI

To set the event time-to-live to a value other than 1440 minutes, use:

To set the max retries to a value other than 30, use:

Lettering grid builder

Note

If you set both event-ttl and max-deliver-attempts, Event Grid uses the first to expire to determine when to stop event delivery. For example, if you set 30 minutes as time-to-live (TTL) and 10 max delivery attempts. When an event isn't delivered after 30 minutes (or) isn't delivered after 10 attempts, whichever happens first, the event is dead-lettered.

PowerShell

To set the event time-to-live to a value other than 1440 minutes, use:

To set the max retries to a value other than 30, use:

During this webinar, we were joined by hand lettering artist Ian Barnard, who showed us how to use one of his most useful and best-selling products, The Grid Builder, to create stunning lettering layouts. With this set of 35 individual and flexible grid shapes, Ian led us through how to letter 'The Design Cuts Community Rocks' from start to finish.

The contents covered in this article are merely a taste of what's possible with The Grid Builder. Make sure to give the full webinar a watch and let us know what you think in the comments below!

Part 1: On Paper

1. Bringing out the Notebook

We kicked off this webinar by discussing our sketching process. With a notebook and pencil in hand, our first step was to determine what we'd be lettering and how we'd lay it out. We drew boxes around our words to visualize what shapes we'd be working with and then decided which would be our primary, secondary, and filler words.

2. Sketching our Layout

Next, we make a rough sketch of our layouts and maintained symmetry by drawing straight lines through our boxes. We played around with multiple styles and gave the pieces more pop.

3. Filling in our Letters

Builder

Once we were happy with our sketches, we roughly filled in our blank boxes with the letters we'd chosen.

Part 2: In Procreate

4. Importing our Sketch

Once in Procreate, we brought an image of our sketch into the app and lowered its opacity so it was positioned in the background. We then drew a straight from from the top to the bottom of our digital canvas.

5. Opening The Grid Builder

Lettering Grid

We created a new layer and began by adding in a Grid Builder banner to the top of our design. For the next portion, we positioned the remainder of the grids.

6. Bringing in The Letter Builder

To help us sketch our individual letters, we hid our initial background sketch and brought in another Ian Barnard favourite - The Letter Builder. The Letter Builder enabled us to maintain consistency in our letterforms with regards to size, width, thickness and style.

7. Creating our Foundation

We started the process of lettering in Procreate by flattening our current image and reducing its opacity. This way, we could still see its outline, but it didn't get in our way. We sketched our initial letters using one of Ian's go-to brushes, The Chalk Dust Brush Kit.

8. Lettering Away

At this point, we turned off both our Grid Builder and Letter Builder to expose our foundation. We reduced the opacity of our lettering skeleton and then began making our lettering more elaborate using a simple sans serif and brush script.

9. Bringing our Design to Life

Using our foundation, we started shading in our lettering and giving it depth.

10. The Final Design

Lettering Grid

After time spent adding depth, texture, and a small illustration to our top banner, we finally completed our lettering design! Thanks to the talented Ian barnard and his Grid Builder, we were able to create a stunning lettering piece.
