Introduction

A RabbitMQ Get Bulk activity gets messages at a RabbitMQ endpoint and is intended to be used as a source to provide data to an operation. After configuring a RabbitMQ connection, you can configure as many RabbitMQ activities as you like for each RabbitMQ connection.

Creating a RabbitMQ Activity

From the design canvas, open the Connectivity tab of the design component palette:

Connectivity tab

Use the Show dropdown to filter on Endpoints, and then click the RabbitMQ connection block to display activities that are available to be used with a RabbitMQ connection:

RabbitMQ activities

To create an activity that can be configured, drag the activity block from the palette to the operation.

For more information about the parts of an operation and adding activities to operations, see Operation Creation and Configuration.

Configuring a RabbitMQ Get Bulk Activity

Follow these steps to configure a RabbitMQ Get Bulk activity:

Step 1: Enter a Name and Specify Settings

TIP: Fields with a variable icon Variable icon support using global variables, project variables, and Jitterbit variables. Begin either by typing an open square bracket [ into the field or by clicking the variable icon to display a list of the existing variables to choose from.

  • Name: Enter a name to use to identify the RabbitMQ Get Bulk activity. The name must be unique for each RabbitMQ Get Bulk activity and must not contain forward slashes (/) or colons (:).

  • Queue: Enter the RabbitMQ queue name.

  • Batch Size: Enter the batch size.

  • Auto Acknowledge: If selected, the messages are automatically acknowledged upon receipt without requiring a separate acknowledgment activity.

  • Save & Exit: If enabled, click to save the configuration for this step and close the activity configuration.

  • Next: Click to continue to the next step and temporarily store the configuration. The configuration is not be saved until you click the Finished button on the last step.

  • Discard Changes: After making changes, click to close the configuration without saving changes made to any step. A message asks you to confirm that you want to discard changes.

Step 2: Review the Data Schema

  • Data Schema: The response data schema for RabbitMQ is displayed. If the operation uses a transformation, the data schema is displayed again later during the transformation mapping process, where you can map to target fields using source objects, scripts, variables, custom values, and more.

    The RabbitMQ connector uses the RabbitMQ Java Client v5.8.0. Refer to the RabbitMQ documentation for information on the schema fields.

  • Back: Click to return to the previous step and temporarily store the configuration.

  • Finished: Click to save the configuration for all steps and close the activity configuration.

  • Discard Changes: After making changes, click to close the configuration without saving changes made to any step. A message asks you to confirm that you want to discard changes.

Next Steps

After configuring a RabbitMQ Get Bulk activity, complete the configuration of the operation by adding and configuring other activities, transformations, or scripts as operation steps. You can also configure an operation's operation settings, which include the ability to chain operations together that are in the same or different workflows.

After a RabbitMQ activity has been created, menu actions for that activity are accessible from the project pane in either the Workflows or the Components tabs, and from the design canvas. See Activity Actions Menu for details.

RabbitMQ Get Bulk activities can be used as a source with these operation patterns:

Other patterns are not valid using RabbitMQ Get Bulk activities. See the validation patterns on the Operation Validity page.

A typical use case is to use a RabbitMQ Get Bulk activity in the Two-Transformation Pattern. In this example, the first transformation (RabbitMQ Get Bulk Request) creates a request structure that is passed to the RabbitMQ Get Bulk activity. The second transformation (RabbitMQ Get Bulk Response) receives the response structure, which is then written to a variable by a Variable Write activity (Write RabbitMQ Get Bulk Response) and a message is then logged by the Write to Operation Log script:

RabbitMQ Get Bulk operation

To use the activity with scripting functions, write the data to a temporary location and then use that temporary location in the scripting function.

When ready, deploy and run the operation and validate behavior by checking the operation logs.
