AMQP Publisher Plugin

Publish alerts to an AMQP topic.

Installation

Clone the GitHub repo and run:

$ python setup.py install

Or, to install remotely from GitHub run:

$ pip install git+https://github.com/alerta/alerta-contrib.git#subdirectory=plugins/amqp

Note: If Alerta is installed in a python virtual environment then plugins need to be installed into the same environment for Alerta to dynamically discover them.

Configuration

Add amqp to the list of enabled PLUGINS in alertad.conf server configuration file and set plugin-specific variables either in the server configuration file or as environment variables.

PLUGINS = ['amqp']
AMQP_URL = 'mongodb://localhost:27017/kombu'
AMQP_TOPIC = 'notify'

Note: By default the AMQP plugin is configured to use MongoDB as the AMQP transport so it is not necessary to install RabbitMQ or some other messaging backbone to make use of this plugin.

RabbitMQ Example

PLUGINS = ['reject','amqp']
AMQP_URL = 'amqp://login:password@server:port//'  # => default RabbitMQ port=5762
AMQP_TOPIC = 'alerta.notify'

Troubleshooting

Restart Alerta API and confirm that the plugin has been loaded and enabled.

Set DEBUG=True in the alertad.conf configuration file and look for log entries similar to below:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
INFO in alerta_amqp [/opt/alerta/venv/lib/python2.7/site-packages/alerta_amqp-0.2.0-py2.7.egg/alerta_amqp.py:47]:
