This module manages RabbitMQ (

Module Description

The rabbitmq module sets up rabbitmq and has a number of providers to manage everything from vhosts to exchanges after setup.

This module has been tested against 3.5.x and 3.6.x (as well as earlier versions) and is known to not support all features against versions prior to 2.7.1.


What rabbitmq affects

  • rabbitmq repository files.
  • rabbitmq package.
  • rabbitmq configuration file.
  • rabbitmq service.


All options and configuration can be done through interacting with the parameters on the main rabbitmq class. These are now documented via Puppet Strings

You can view example usage in REFERENCE.
