NAME

rabbitmq-pluginscommand line for managing RabbitMQ broker plugins

SYNOPSIS

rabbitmq-plugins [-n node] command [command_options]

DESCRIPTION

rabbitmq-plugins is a command line tool for managing RabbitMQ broker plugins. It allows one to enable, disable and browse plugins. It must be run by a user with write permissions to the RabbitMQ configuration directory.
Some plugins depend on others to work correctly. rabbitmq-plugins traverses these dependencies and enables all required plugins. Plugins listed on the rabbitmq-plugins command line are marked as explicitly enabled; dependent plugins are marked as implicitly enabled. Implicitly enabled plugins are automatically disabled again when they are no longer required.
The enable, disable, and set commands will update the plugins file and then attempt to connect to the broker and ensure it is running all enabled plugins. By default if it is not possible to connect to the running broker (for example if it is stopped) then a warning is displayed. Specify --online or --offline to change this behaviour.

COMMANDS

list [-Eemv] [pattern]
-E
Show only explicitly enabled plugins.
-e
Show only explicitly or implicitly enabled plugins.
-m
Show only plugin names (minimal).
-v
Show all plugin details (verbose).
pattern
Pattern to filter the plugin names by.
Lists all plugins, their versions, dependencies and descriptions. Each plugin is prefixed with two status indicator characters inside [ ]. The first indicator can be:
<space>
to indicate that the plugin is not enabled
E
to indicate that it is explicitly enabled
e
to indicate that it is implicitly enabled
!
to indicate that it is enabled but missing and thus not operational
The second indicator can be:
<space>
to show that the plugin is not running
*
to show that it is
If the optional pattern is given, only plugins whose name matches pattern are shown.
For example, this command lists all plugins, on one line each
 
rabbitmq-plugins list
This command lists all plugins:
 
rabbitmq-plugins list -v
This command lists all plugins whose name contains "management".
 
rabbitmq-plugins list -v management
This command lists all implicitly or explicitly enabled RabbitMQ plugins.
 
rabbitmq-plugins list -e rabbit
enable [--offline] [--online] plugin ...
--offline
Just modify the enabled plugins file.
--online
Treat failure to connect to the running broker as fatal.
plugin
One or more plugins to enable.
Enables the specified plugins and all their dependencies.
For example, this command enables the “shovel” and “management” plugins and all their dependencies:
 
rabbitmq-plugins enable rabbitmq_shovel rabbitmq_management
disable [--offline] [--online] plugin ...
--offline
Just modify the enabled plugins file.
--online
Treat failure to connect to the running broker as fatal.
plugin
One or more plugins to disable.
Disables the specified plugins and all their dependencies.
For example, this command disables “amqp_client” and all plugins that depend on it:
 
rabbitmq-plugins disable amqp_client
set [--offline] [--online] [plugin ...]
--offline
Just modify the enabled plugins file.
--online
Treat failure to connect to the running broker as fatal.
plugin
Zero or more plugins to enable.
Enables the specified plugins and all their dependencies. Unlike enable, this command ignores and overwrites any existing enabled plugins. set with no plugin arguments is a legal command meaning "disable all plugins".
For example, this command enables the “management” plugin and its dependencies and disables everything else:
 
rabbitmq-plugins set rabbitmq_management
