OpenStack Chef Cookbook - ops-messaging



This cookbook provides shared message queue configuration for the OpenStack deployment provided by Chef for OpenStack. The OpenStack chef-repo contains documentation for using this cookbook in the context of a full OpenStack deployment. It currently supports RabbitMQ and will soon other queues.


  • Chef 15 or higher
  • Chef Workstation 20.8.111 for testing (also includes berkshelf for cookbook dependency resolution)


  • ubuntu
  • redhat
  • centos


The following cookbooks are dependencies:

  • 'openstack-common', '>= 20.0.0'
  • 'rabbitmq', '~> 5.8'


The usage of this cookbook is optional, you may choose to set up your own messaging service without using this cookbook. If you choose to do so, you will need to provide all of the attributes listed under the Attributes.







  • Installs and configures RabbitMQ and is called via the server recipe


  • openstack["mq"]["cluster"] - whether or not to cluster rabbit, defaults to false

The following attributes are defined in attributes/messaging.rb of the common cookbook, but are documented here due to their relevance:

  • openstack["endpoints"]["mq"]["host"] - The IP address to bind the rabbit service to
  • openstack["endpoints"]["mq"]["port"] - The port to bind the rabbit service to
  • openstack["endpoints"]["mq"]["bind_interface"] - The interface name to bind the rabbit service to
  • openstack["mq"]["rabbitmq"]["use_ssl"] - Enables/disables SSL for RabbitMQ, the default is false.

If the value of the bind_interface attribute is non-nil, then the rabbit service will be bound to the first IP address on that interface. If the value of the bind_interface attribute is nil, then the rabbit service will be bound to the IP address specified in the host attribute.


Please refer to the for instructions for testing the cookbook.


Berks will resolve version requirements and dependencies on first run and store these in Berksfile.lock. If new cookbooks become available you can run berks update to update the references in Berksfile.lock. Berksfile.lock will be included in stable branches to provide a known good set of dependencies. Berksfile.lock will not be included in development branches to encourage development against the latest cookbooks.
