Use the RabbitMQ admin console

To use the RabbitMQ admin console, follow these steps:

  • Download the rabbitmqadmin application from http://SERVER-IP:15672/cli/. You will need Python 2.5, 2.6 or later.

  • Copy rabbitmqadmin to /usr/local/bin/ and give it execution permissions.

    $ chmod +x rabbitmqadmin
    
  • Invoke the following for usage instructions:

    $ rabbitmqadmin --help
    

    This command allows you to:

    • list exchanges, queues, bindings, vhosts, users, permissions, connections and channels.
    • show overview information.
    • declare and delete exchanges, queues, bindings, vhosts, users and permissions.
    • publish and get messages.
    • close connections and purge queues.
    • import and export configuration.

Usage examples

  • To connect to your machine and list the vhosts that there are created:

    $ rabbitmqadmin -H SERVER-IP -u USER_NAME -p PASSWORD list vhosts
    
  • To declare a new user:

    $ rabbitmqadmin -H SERVER-IP -u USER_NAME -p PASSWORD declare user name=NEW_USER_NAME password=NEW_PASSWORD tags=username
    
  • To give access to the new user:

    $ rabbitmqadmin -H SERVER-IP -u USER_NAME -p PASSWORD declare permission vhost=/ user=NEW_USER_NAME configure=.* write=.* read=.*
    

    NOTE: You have to specify where the new user can configure, write or write. Use .* to specify all the exchanges in the vhost.

  • To delete a user:

    $ rabbitmqadmin -H SERVER-IP -u USER_NAME -p PASSWORD delete user name=NEW_USER_NAME

  • To publish a message:

    $ rabbitmqadmin -H SERVER-IP -u USER_NAME -p PASSWORD publish exchange=amq.default routing_key=QUEUE_NAME payload="hello, world"
    
  • And to get it back:

    $ rabbitmqadmin -H SERVER-IP -u USER_NAME -p PASSWORD  get queue=QUEUE_NAME requeue=false
