RabbitMQ message store persists messages in a RabbitMQ queue inside a RabbitMQ broker. The RabbitMQ message store can be configured by specifying the class as and then setting all other required parameters to connect to a RabbitMQ broker.

Required parameters

When you add a RabbitMQ message store, it is required to specify values for the following:

  • Name - A unique name for the RabbitMQ message store. 
  • RabbitMQ Server Host Name ( ) - The address of the RabbitMQ broker.
  • RabbitMQ Server Host Port ( - The port number of the RabbitMQ message broker. 
  • SSL Enabled - Whether or not SSL is enabled on the message store. 

When SSL Enabled is set to true, you can set the parameters relating to the SSL configuration. For descriptions of each of these parameters you can set, see SSL enabled RabbitMQ message store parameters.

SSL enabled RabbitMQ message store parameters

Parameter NameValue
SSL Key Store Location (rabbitmq.connection.ssl.keystore.location)The location of the keystore file.
SSL Key Store Type (rabbitmq.connection.ssl.keystore.type)The type of the keystore used (e.g., JKS, PKCS12).
SSL Key Store Password (rabbitmq.connection.ssl.keystore.password)The password to access the keystore.
SSL Trust Store Location (rabbitmq.connection.ssl.truststore.location)The location of the Java keystore file containing the collection of CA certificates trusted by this application process (truststore).
SSL Trust Store Type (rabbitmq.connection.ssl.truststore.typeThe type of the truststore used.
SSL Trust Store Password (rabbitmq.connection.ssl.truststore.password)The password to unlock the trust store file specified in rabbitmq.connection.ssl.truststore.location
SSL Version (rabbitmq.connection.ssl.version)SSL protocol version (e.g., SSL, TLSV1, TLSV1.2)

Following is a sample configuration for SSL enabled RabbitMQ message store:

<messageStore xmlns=""
   <parameter name="">false</parameter>
   <parameter name="">store1</parameter>
   <parameter name="">localhost</parameter>
   <parameter name="">WithoutClientCertQueue</parameter>
   <parameter name="">5671</parameter>
   <parameter name="rabbitmq.connection.ssl.enabled">true</parameter>
   <parameter name="rabbitmq.connection.ssl.truststore.location">path/to/truststore</parameter>
   <parameter name="rabbitmq.connection.ssl.truststore.type">JKS</parameter>
   <parameter name="rabbitmq.connection.ssl.truststore.password">truststorepassword</parameter>
   <parameter name="rabbitmq.connection.ssl.keystore.location">path/to/keystore</parameter>     
   <parameter name="rabbitmq.connection.ssl.keystore.type">PKCS12</parameter>
   <parameter name="rabbitmq.connection.ssl.keystore.password">keystorepassword</parameter>   
   <parameter name="rabbitmq.connection.ssl.version">SSL</parameter>   

Configuring parameters that provide information related to keystores and truststores can be optional based on your broker configuration.

For example, if fail_if_no_peer_cert is set to false in the RabbitMQ broker configuration, then you only need to specify <parameter name="rabbitmq.connection.ssl.enabled" locked="false">true</parameter>. Additionally, you can also set <parameter name="rabbitmq.connection.ssl.version" locked="false">true</parameter> parameter to specify the SSL version. If fail_if_no_peer_cert is set to true, you need to provide keystore and truststore information.

Following is a sample message store configuration where fail_if_no_peer_cert is set to false:

{ssl_options, [{cacertfile,"/path/to/testca/cacert.pem"},

Additional RabbitMQ message store parameters

Parameter Name



RabbitMQ Queue Name ( message store queue name.Though this is not a required parameter, we recommend specifying a value for this.
RabbitMQ Exchange Name ( name of the RabbitMQ exchange to which the queue is bound (If the ESB profile has to declare this exchange it will be declared as a direct exchange).No
Routing key (store.rabbitmq.route.key)The exchange and queue binding value. Messages will be routed using this. No (This is considered only when both the exchange name and type are provided. Else messages will be routed using the default exchange and queue name as the routing key).
User Name (store.rabbitmq.usernameThe user name to connect to the broker.


Password (store.rabbitmq.passwordThe password to connect to the broker.No
Virtual Host ( virtual host name of the broker.No

If you need to ensure guaranteed delivery when you store incoming messages to a RabbitMQ message store, and then deliver them to a particular backend, click Show Guaranteed Delivery Parameters and specify values for the following parameters:

  • Enable Producer Guaranteed Delivery ( - Whether it is required to enable guaranteed delivery on the producer side.
  • Failover Message Store ( - The message store to which the store mediator should send messages when the original message store fails.

Example RabbitMQ message store configurations

Following is a basic sample RabbitMQ message store configuration:

<messageStore class="" name="RabbitMS" xmlns="">
  <parameter name="">localhost</parameter>
  <parameter name="">EIStore</parameter>
  <parameter name="">5672</parameter>
  <parameter name="store.rabbitmq.username">guest</parameter>
  <parameter name="store.rabbitmq.password">guest</parameter>
  <parameter name="">exchange</parameter>
