About AMQP Bind Queue test step

Use this test step to create a binding between a queue and an exchange on an AMQP broker. A binding is a rule that the exchange uses to route certain messages to certain queues.

Note: To use the test step, you must have the AMQP Support Plugin installed. You can install it on the Integrations tab.


To use this test step, you need a ReadyAPI Test license. If you do not have it, you can request it on our web site or start a trial.

Editing AMQP Bind Queue test step

You can modify the settings of the test step in its editor:

Choose a configured connection to the broker from the drop-down list, or select [Create new connection] to create a new connection using the Create AMQP Connection dialog. Click the Edit button to customize properties of the selected connection in the Edit AMQP Connection dialog.


The name of the exchange to which a queue will be bound.


The name of the queue to which messages will be routed.

Routing key

The key used to determine which messages will be routed to the specified queue. If the routing keys in the binding and in the message are the same (for direct exchanges) or the message routing key matches the pattern in the binding routing key (for topic exchanges), the message will be routed to the queue.

Note: This field is optional. The routing key is not needed for fanout exchanges.
Note: The above-mentioned fields support property expansions.

Create/Edit AMQP Connection dialog

Use the Create AMQP Connection and Edit AMQP Connection dialogs to configure connections used by the test step. Both dialogs have the same set of options.

Note: ReadyAPI stores AMQP connections at the project level. This means that a connection defined for one test step can be used for all the test steps in other test cases and test suites of the project.
