RabbitMQ 3.7.17

RabbitMQ 3.7.17 is a maintenance release. It focuses on bug fixes and upgrades
a JavaScript dependency in the management UI to patch three CVEs in that library.

Erlang/OTP Compatibility Notes

Per the new Erlang version support policy in effect starting with January 2019,
this release no longer supports Erlang/OTP 19.3.
Make sure a supported Erlang version is used before upgrading.

Provisioning Latest Erlang Releases explains
what package repositories and tools can be used to provision latest patch versions of Erlang 21.3.x and 22.x.

Compatibility Notes

Upgrading to Erlang 21.x or Later Versions

When upgrading to this release and upgrading Erlang to 21.x or later at the same time, extra care has to be taken.
Since CLI tools from RabbitMQ releases older than 3.7.7 will fail on Erlang 21 or later,
RabbitMQ must be upgraded before Erlang.

Upgrade Doc Guides and Change Log

See 3.7.0 release notes upgrade
and compatibility notes first if upgrading from an earlier release.

See the Upgrading guide for general documentation on upgrades
and RabbitMQ change log for release notes of other releases.

RabbitMQ mailing list.


Core Server


  • amqqueue module and the feature flag subsystem were backported from 3.8. This makes it possible
    for plugin developers to target both 3.7.x and 3.8.x release series.

    Note that this only backports the API. There are no feature flags to enable in 3.7.17.
    No 3.8-specific features that must be enabled via feature flags were backported and there are no
    plans to do it in later 3.7.x releases.

CLI Tools

Bug Fixes


  • Commands that take passwords as arguments now accept them via standard input.

    GitHub issue: rabbitmq/rabbitmq-cli#365

  • rabbitmq-diagnostics observer no longer requires RabbitMQ application to be running on
    the target node.

    GitHub issue: rabbitmq/rabbitmq-cli#368

Management Plugin

Bug Fixes


  • Definition import endpoint no longer reports progress via 102 Processing responses. They proved to be problematic
    for some HTTP clients, including rabbitmqadmin.

    GitHub issues: rabbitmq/rabbitmq-management#715, rabbitmq/rabbitmq-management#718

  • Leading and trailing white space characters are now highlighted in queue and exchange names to make them easier to spot.
    Tab characters are highlighted as well, even in the middle of the word. The idea is that those characters are typically used by mistake and should be easier to notice.

    GitHub issue: rabbitmq/rabbitmq-management#721

  • It wasn't possible to delete a binding declared with routing_key set to null (only possible via the HTTP API).
    Now such bindings can be deleted but this practice is highly discouraged. Future HTTP API versions might refuse to accept
    null values as they are impossible to declare via AMQP 0-9-1.
