Amazon MQ

To add Amazon MQ as a Datasource in the Admin UI, set the following configuration properties. For more information, see our main guide, Add a Datasource.

In order to connect to the Amazon MQ resource through strongDM, you will need to disable hostname verification or allow invalid hostnames on the client side.
