Getting Help and Support

Open Source Edition and Community Support Policy

Effective June 1st 2024, the RabbitMQ team will adopt a new community support and release policy for the open source distribution.

The changes do not impact the current RabbitMQ open source license. The RabbitMQ core team continues developing open source RabbitMQ under the Mozilla Public License 2.0 on GitHub.

With the new policy, older open source release series (for example, RabbitMQ 3.12.x) will no longer receive updates (patch releases). Patch releases for older series of both the open source and commercial editions will be available to customers that have VMware Tanzu RabbitMQ commercial licenses


There are two primary ways to obtain RabbitMQ support from the core development team at Broadcom:


Please use to contact Broadcom sales.

To learn about the commercial support options, see VMware's Commercial Open Source RabbitMQ support.

For information about VMware Tanzu RabbitMQ, the Enterprise version of RabbitMQ, go to the VMware Tanzu RabbitMQ product page.

Existing Commercial Users

If you already have a license with Broadcom for one or the other (that is Open Source RabbitMQ or an Enterprise version of RabbitMQ) and you need to file a support ticket, you can do it using the Customer Portal for VMware products.

Refer to the VMware support page for other support information. For questions about booking training or consulting, please contact the appropriate vendor.


If you make a sales or support inquiry and do not get a prompt response, please email and Team RabbitMQ will ensure you get prompt service.
