5.0 quality score

We run a couple of automated
scans to help you access a
module's quality. Each module is
given a score based on how well
the author has formatted their
code and documentation and
modules are also checked for
malware using VirusTotal.

Please note, the information below
is for guidance only and neither of
these methods should be considered
an endorsement by Puppet.

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.
