Understanding Azure Marketplace event flow

In working with the sample projects in the the Azure SDK I wanted to make sure I understood how the Marketplace event flow was happening. If you do the tutorial in the Azure 1.4 it helps you connect an application so it can handle subscription events from the marketplace. There is a lot of code created for you though. Once I got it working I still did not really understand what the event flow was happening from the Marketplace to my application. The solution? Spend some time digging through all the code and application flow and create a nice little Visio to help visualize it. Below is the diagram I created. Hopefully, if you have used the tutorial this will help you understand how the components you created and configured actually get wired together.
