Detailed documentation on the KubeMQ pubsub component

Component format

To set up KubeMQ pub/sub, create a component of type pubsub.kubemq. See the pub/sub broker component file to learn how ConsumerID is automatically generated. Read the How-to: Publish and Subscribe guide on how to create and apply a pub/sub configuration.

apiVersion: dapr.io/v1alpha1

Spec metadata fields

Field Required Details Example
address Y Address of the KubeMQ server "localhost:50000"
store N type of pubsub, true: pubsub persisted (EventsStore), false: pubsub in-memory (Events) true or false (default is false)
consumerID N Consumer ID (consumer tag) organizes one or more consumers into a group. Consumers with the same consumer ID work as one virtual consumer; for example, a message is processed only once by one of the consumers in the group. If the consumerID is not provided, the Dapr runtime set it to the Dapr application ID (appID) value. Can be set to string value (such as "channel1" in the example above) or string format value (such as "{podName}", etc.). See all of template tags you can use in your component metadata.
clientID N Name for client id connection sub-client-12345
authToken N Auth JWT token for connection Check out KubeMQ Authentication ew...
group N Subscriber group for load balancing g1
disableReDelivery N Set if message should be re-delivered in case of error coming from application true or false (default is false)

Create a KubeMQ broker


  1. Obtain KubeMQ Key.
  2. Wait for an email confirmation with your Key

You can run a KubeMQ broker with Docker:

docker run -d -p 8080:8080 -p 50000:50000 -p 9090:9090 -e KUBEMQ_TOKEN=<your-key> kubemq/kubemq

You can then interact with the server using the client port: localhost:50000


  1. Obtain KubeMQ Key.
  2. Wait for an email confirmation with your Key

Then Run the following kubectl commands:

kubectl apply -f https://deploy.kubemq.io/init
kubectl apply -f https://deploy.kubemq.io/key/<your-key>

Install KubeMQ CLI

Go to KubeMQ CLI and download the latest version of the CLI.

Browse KubeMQ Dashboard


Open a browser and navigate to http://localhost:8080


With KubeMQCTL installed, run the following command:

kubemqctl get dashboard

Or, with kubectl installed, run port-forward command:

kubectl port-forward svc/kubemq-cluster-api -n kubemq 8080:8080
