This topic describes how to create a vhost in the Message Queue for RabbitMQ console. A vhost is used to logically isolate resources. vhosts manage their own exchanges, queues, and bindings.


  1. Log on to the Message Queue for RabbitMQ console.
  2. In the top navigation bar, select the region where your instance resides.
  3. In the left-side navigation pane, click vhosts.
  4. On the vhosts page, select an instance and click Create vhost.
  5. In the Create vhost dialog box, enter a vhost name in the vhost Name field and click Create.
    • The name can contain only letters, digits, hyphens (-), underscores (_), periods (.), and at signs (@).
    • It must be 1 to 255 characters in length. Excess characters are automatically discarded.
    • After a vhost is created, you cannot modify its name.


You can view the created vhost on the vhosts page.
