This module allows you to install IBM Integration Bus (IIB) software. It is part of our family of Puppet modules to install and manage IBM messaging middleware. Besides the iib_install module, this family also contains:

  • mq_install to install the MQ software.
  • mq_config to configure and manage the MQ software
  • iib_config to manage and configure IBM Integration Bus software


This is a commercially licensed module. But you can use the module on VirtualBox based development systems for FREE. When used on real systems a license is required.

You can license our modules in multiple ways. Our basic licensing model requires a subscription per node. But contact us for details.

Check the License for details.


Our iib_install module allows you to install your IBM MQ software on your systems. It automatically configures your OS, creates required users and groups, unpacks the files and registers the license.

Here is an example on how to use this:

include iib_install::installmq

Check here to see the full documentation for this module.



The iib_install module requires:

  • IBM MQ 8 or 9 installation.
  • A valid License from IBM to use this software.

Building a total MQ setup requires quite some work. To help you, we have built some examples:

Thes repos contain examples of how you can install and configure a basic IIB setup.
