Metadata

Message metadata is added to each AMQP message as string annotations. In order to control which metadata keys are added use the metadata config field.

Performance

This output benefits from sending multiple messages in flight in parallel for improved performance. You can tune the max number of in flight messages (or message batches) with the field max_in_flight.

Fields

urls

A list of URLs to connect to. The first URL to successfully establish a connection will be used until the connection is closed. If an item of the list contains commas it will be expanded into multiple URLs.

Type: array

# Examples

urls:
  - amqp://guest:[email protected]:5672/

urls:
  - amqp://127.0.0.1:5672/,amqp://127.0.0.2:5672/

urls:
  - amqp://127.0.0.1:5672/
  - amqp://127.0.0.2:5672/

target_address

The target address to write to.

Type: string

# Examples

target_address: /foo

target_address: queue:/bar

target_address: topic:/baz

max_in_flight

The maximum number of messages to have in flight at a given time. Increase this to improve throughput.

Type: int
Default: 64

tls

Custom TLS settings can be used to override system defaults.

Type: object

tls.enabled

Whether custom TLS settings are enabled.

Type: bool
Default: false

tls.skip_cert_verify

Whether to skip server side certificate verification.

Type: bool
Default: false

tls.enable_renegotiation

Whether to allow the remote server to repeatedly request renegotiation. Enable this option if you’re seeing the error message local error: tls: no renegotiation.

Type: bool
Default: false

tls.root_cas

An optional root certificate authority to use. This is a string, representing a certificate chain from the parent trusted root certificate, to possible intermediate signing certificates, to the host certificate.

Type: string
Default: ""

# Examples

root_cas: |-
  -----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----
  ...
  -----END CERTIFICATE-----  

tls.root_cas_file

An optional path of a root certificate authority file to use. This is a file, often with a .pem extension, containing a certificate chain from the parent trusted root certificate, to possible intermediate signing certificates, to the host certificate.

Type: string
Default: ""

# Examples

root_cas_file: ./root_cas.pem

tls.client_certs

A list of client certificates to use. For each certificate either the fields cert and key, or cert_file and key_file should be specified, but not both.

Type: array
Default: []

# Examples

client_certs:
  - cert: foo
    key: bar

client_certs:
  - cert_file: ./example.pem
    key_file: ./example.key

tls.client_certs[].cert

A plain text certificate to use.

Type: string
Default: ""

tls.client_certs[].key

A plain text certificate key to use.

Type: string
Default: ""

tls.client_certs[].cert_file

The path of a certificate to use.

Type: string
Default: ""

tls.client_certs[].key_file

The path of a certificate key to use.

Type: string
Default: ""

tls.client_certs[].password

A plain text password for when the private key is password encrypted in PKCS#1 or PKCS#8 format. The obsolete pbeWithMD5AndDES-CBC algorithm is not supported for the PKCS#8 format. Warning: Since it does not authenticate the ciphertext, it is vulnerable to padding oracle attacks that can let an attacker recover the plaintext.

Type: string
Default: ""

# Examples

password: foo

password: ${KEY_PASSWORD}

application_properties_map

An optional Bloblang mapping that can be defined in order to set the application-properties on output messages.

Type: string

sasl

Enables SASL authentication.

Type: object

sasl.mechanism

The SASL authentication mechanism to use.

Type: string
Default: "none"

Option Summary
anonymous Anonymous SASL authentication.
none No SASL based authentication.
plain Plain text SASL authentication.

sasl.user

A SASL plain text username. It is recommended that you use environment variables to populate this field.

Type: string
Default: ""

# Examples

user: ${USER}

sasl.password

A SASL plain text password. It is recommended that you use environment variables to populate this field.

Type: string
Default: ""

# Examples

password: ${PASSWORD}

metadata

Specify criteria for which metadata values are attached to messages as headers.

Type: object

metadata.exclude_prefixes

Provide a list of explicit metadata key prefixes to be excluded when adding metadata to sent messages.

Type: array
Default: []
