Community Plugins

For your convenience, we offer binary downloads of plugins which have been contributed by authors in the community. These plugins do not ship with the RabbitMQ server itself; you can download them from our community plugin archive.

The plugins are available compiled against various releases of RabbitMQ.

We offer no guarantee that these will even work against a given release of RabbitMQ. We build them at release time, and also when requested to by a plugin author.

The download links on this page let you download the latest build of the plugin, compiled against the latest feature release of RabbitMQ. Bugfix releases do not affect plugin compatibility. For older versions of plugins see the archive. See also how to install additional plugins.

When RabbitMQ is upgraded, all community plugins must be re-installed. This may mean installing newer versions of them. Alternatively, they can be disabled before or during the upgrade.

If you are the author of a plugin and would like it listed here, please get in touch!


The last value exchange acts like a direct exchange (binding keys are compared for equality with routing keys); but it also keeps track of the last value that was published with each routing key, and when a queue is bound, it automatically enqueues the last value for the binding key.
Adds a reverse topic exchange which lets you provide routing patterns at publishing time, instead of at binding time.
As of RabbitMQ 3.6.0 the recent history exchange plugin is provided with the broker's package.
A plugin that adds delayed-messaging (or scheduled-messaging) to RabbitMQ.
A plugin that stamps a message with the node who first received it.
A plugin that adds a timestamp when a message first enters RabbitMQ.

Authentication / Authorisation

Provides the ability for your RabbitMQ server to perform authentication (determining who can log in) and authorisation (determining what permissions they have) by making requests to an HTTP server.
Provides the ability for your RabbitMQ server to perform authentication and authorisation over AMQP itself.
Provides the ability for your RabbitMQ server to perform authorisation based on the client IP address.
Provides support for TLS (x509) certificate whitelisting. All plugins which use the global TLS options will be configured with the same whitelist. This plugin is provided with the broker's package.


Adds a "top" like view of busy processes to the management plugin. This plugin is provided with the broker's package.
Adds an exchange type which allows you to connect to the management API using AMQP rather than HTTP.
As of RabbitMQ 3.6.0 the event exchange plugin is provided with the broker's package.
Adds the possibility to customize the management web UI look.
Adds a tab to the management UI which displays boot steps in a graph. This is a debugging tool: it is of no use in a production broker.

Clustering and Distributed RabbitMQ

Adds the possibility to automatically cluster RabbitMQ nodes using Consul, etcd or DNS for service discovery.
Provides an alternative way of cluster formation. This plugin is deprecated.


Basho's Lager logging framework as a RabbitMQ plugin.


As of RabbitMQ 3.5.0 the priority queue plugin is integrated into the broker. Users of the plugin upgrading from previous versions of RabbitMQ should:
  • Install the new version of RabbitMQ

  • Start the server
As of RabbitMQ 3.6.0 the sharding plugin is provided with the broker's package.


Implements the Publish-Subscribe Broker for the Constrained Application Protocol (CoAP) as specified in the draft-koster-core-coap-pubsub-02.
Maps SMTP to AMQP (to convert an incoming email to an AMQP message) and AMQP to SMTP (to send an email from an AMQP message).
Translates PostgreSQL NOTIFY messages to AMQP messages and publishes them to bound queues. The PostgreSQL NOTIFY message channel is used as the routing key for the message using direct exchange style routing mechanics.
Provides support for MQTT-over-WebSockets.
