Supermarket Belongs to the Community

Supermarket belongs to the community. While Chef has the responsibility to keep it running and be stewards of its functionality, what it does and how it works is driven by the community. The chef/supermarket repository will continue to be where development of the Supermarket application takes place. Come be part of shaping the direction of Supermarket by opening issues and pull requests or by joining us on the Chef Mailing List.

This is a cookbook for managing RabbitMQ with Chef. It is intended for 2.6.1 or later releases.

Version 2.0 Changes

The 2.0 release of the cookbook defaults to using the latest version available from via direct download of the package. This was done to simplify the installation options to either distro package or direct download. The attributes use_apt and use_yum have been removed as have the apt and yum cookbook dependencies. The user LWRP action :set_user_tags was changed to :set_tags for consistency with other actions.

This release was tested with: * CentOS 5.8: 3.0.4 (distro release unsupported) * CentOS 6.3: 3.0.4/2.6.1 (no plugin support) * Debian 6: 3.04 (distro release unsupported) * Ubuntu 10.04: 3.0.4 (distro release unsupported) * Ubuntu 12.04: 3.0.4/2.7.1



Installs rabbitmq-server from via direct download of the installation package or using the distribution version. Depending on your distribution, the provided version may be quite old so they are disabled by default. If you want to use the distro version, set the attribute ['rabbitmq']['use_distro_version'] to true. You may override the download URL attribute ['rabbitmq']['package'] if you wish to use a local mirror.

The cluster recipe is now combined with the default and will now auto-cluster. Set the ['rabbitmq']['cluster'] attribute to true, ['rabbitmq']['cluster_disk_nodes'] array of node@host strings that describe which you want to be disk nodes and then set an alphanumeric string for the erlang_cookie.

To enable SSL turn ssl to true and set the paths to your cacert, cert and key files.


There are 3 LWRPs for interacting with RabbitMQ.


Adds and deletes users, fairly simplistic permissions management.

  • :add adds a user with a password
  • :delete deletes a user
  • :set_permissions sets the permissions for a user, vhost is optional
  • :clear_permissions clears the permissions for a user
  • :set_tags set the tags on a user
  • :clear_tags clear any tags on a user


rabbitmq_user "guest" do
  action :delete

rabbitmq_user "nova" do
  password "sekret"
  action :add

rabbitmq_user "nova" do
  vhost "/nova"
  permissions ".* .* .*"
  action :set_permissions

rabbitmq_user "joe" do
  tag "admin,lead"
  action :set_tags


Adds and deletes vhosts.

  • :add adds a vhost
  • :delete deletes a vhost


rabbitmq_vhost "/nova" do
  action :add


Enables or disables a rabbitmq plugin. Plugins are not supported for releases prior to 2.7.0.

  • :enable enables a plugin
  • :disable disables a plugin


rabbitmq_plugin "rabbitmq_stomp" do
  action :enable

rabbitmq_plugin "rabbitmq_shovel" do
  action :disable


sets or clears a rabbitmq policy.

  • :set sets a policy
  • :clear clears a policy
  • :list lists policys


rabbitmq_policy "ha-all" do
  pattern "^(?!amq\\.).*"
  params {"ha-mode"=>"all"}
  priority 1
  action :set

rabbitmq_policy "ha-all" do
  action :clear


For an already running cluster, these actions still require manual intervention: - changing the :erlang_cookie - turning :cluster from true to false

The rabbitmq::chef recipe was only used for the chef-server cookbook and has been moved to chef-server::rabbitmq.
