Using the RabbitMQ Management Dashboard

Note: RabbitMQ for Pivotal Cloud Foundry v1.13 is no longer supported because it has reached the End of General Support phase. To stay up to date with the latest software and security updates, upgrade to a supported version.

This topic describes how to access the RabbitMQ Management UI.

Access the RabbitMQ Management UI

You can access the management UI for both on-demand and for pre-provisioned service instances. The image below shows an example RabbitMQ Management UI.

Dashboard

Pre-Provisioned Service Instances

To access the RabbitMQ Management UI as the admin user, do the following:

  1. Retrieve your system domain, by doing the following:

    1. Navigate to your Pivotal Application Service (PAS) tile.
    2. In the Domains tab, record the value in the System Domain field.
  2. Visit http://pivotal-rabbitmq.SYS-DOMAIN, where SYS-DOMAIN is the system domain you found in step 1.

  3. The username and password for the Management UI is the username and password you provided in the RabbitMQ configuration in Ops Manager.

On-Demand Service Instances

You can access the RabbitMQ Management UI for an on-demand service instance using Apps Manager or the cf CLI. This is done using credentials that only provide access to a specific vhost.

To access the RabbitMQ Management UI, do one of the following:

Use the cf CLI:

  1. Create credentials using the cf CLI. For instructions, see Create an Admin User for a Service Instance.

  2. Using the output from step 2 of Create an Admin User for a Service Instance, navigate to the URL in dashboard_url and use the username and password to log in to the RabbitMQ Management UI.

Use Apps Manager:

  1. In Apps Manager, navigate to the service instance you want to access the Management UI for.

  2. Click CREATE SERVICE KEY and give it a name of your choice.

    Console manage

    The service key you create should appear in the Service Key Credentials section.

  3. Select the service key you created in the previous step.

  4. From the information displayed, navigate to the URL in dashboard_url. Use the username and password to log in to the RabbitMQ Management UI.
