RabbitMQ–Enable Management plugin

To simplify management and monitoring of your RabbitMQ Service Broker it is a good idea to install the management plugin(don’t expect anything fancy).

  • To install it, logon to the server where you installed RabbitMQ
  • Open a RabbitMQ command prompt

  • Enter the following command
    • rabbitmq-plugins enable rabbitmq_management
  • You’ll get the following log output

D:\Program Files\RabbitMQ Server\rabbitmq_server-3.6.12\sbin>rabbitmq-plugins en

able rabbitmq_management

The following plugins have been enabled:

  amqp_client

  cowlib

  cowboy

  rabbitmq_web_dispatch

  rabbitmq_management_agent

  rabbitmq_management

Applying plugin configuration to rabbit@SERVER01... started 6 plugins.

  • If you want to access the portal from outside the server, you have to configure a firewall rule that allows TCP traffic on port 15672.

  • Remark: Notice that when you try to access the management portal from outside the server using the default guest account, it will not work. This is a security feature that is enabled by default. To solve that, we’ll create another account, but that’s something we cover in another blog post.
