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

The only supported RabbitMQ protocol for connections through strongDM is the AMQP 0.9.1 model. Feel free to email support with any questions.

Configuration Properties

Add RabbitMQ Datasource Dialog
  • Display Name (Required): Enter a meaningful name for this resource (e.g., “rabbitmq”). This name will show up in the Admin UI.
  • Datasource Type (Required): Select RabbitMQ (AMQP 0.9.1).
  • Hostname (Required): Enter the hostname. Note that it must be accessible to a Gateway or Relay. Do not include the protocol (ampq://) or port.
  • Port (Required): Enter the port to connect to the service (default: 5672).
  • Port Override: After this Datasource has been created, this field will be automatically filled with a port between 1024-59999 that is not in use by another Datasource. You can optionally overwrite it with your own preferred port later in the Port Overrides settings.
  • Secret Store: If a secret store integration is configured, select where the credentials for this Datasource will be stored.
  • Username (Required): Enter the username of the user that will be used for this Datasource.
  • Password (Required): Enter the password of the user that will be used for this Datasource.
  • TLS Required? (Optional): If your RabbitMQ configuration requires TLS, you can select this checkbox to enable strongDM to use a TLS connection.
  • Resource Tags (Optional): Assign tags to the Datasource by entering key-value pairs in the format <KEY>=<VALUE> (e.g., env=dev).

If the MIME Content Type of a given RabbitMQ message body is not text/plain or application/json, but is instead some form of binary data, strongDM does not log that message body. Binary data could be anything in any format, and strongDM would be unable to ascertain what it was or know how to display it in log records.
