Connection

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.

Exchange

The name of the exchange.

Note: This field supports property expansions.

Exchange type

The type of the exchange. Available values:

Value Description
direct The exchange routes messages to bound queues if the binding routing key is identical to the message routing key.
fanout The exchange routes messages to all the bound queues; the message routing key is ignored.
topic The exchange routes messages to bound queues if the message routing key matches the pattern that was used to bind a queue to an exchange.
headers The exchange routes messages to the bound queues based on attributes expressed as message headers rather than a routing key.

durable

If the option is checked, the exchange will survive broker restart. If the option is unchecked, the exchange will be deleted when the broker shuts down and will have to be redeclared when it comes back online.

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.
