RabbitMQ - Set user tags using the rabbitmqctl command

The rabbitmqctl command with the set_user_tags option can be used to update a users account to have certain tags. In this example, John Doe's user account is updated with the administrator tag.

rabbitmqctl set_user_tags "john.doe" administrator


Following are the tags can be used.

  • administrator
  • impersonator
  • management
  • monitoring
  • policymaker


Something like this should be returned.

Setting tags for user "john.doe" to [administrator]


To remove all tags from a users account, you would issue the rabbitmqctl command with the set_user_tags option, followed by the username, and no tag.

rabbitmqctl set_user_tags "john.doe"
