Message Queue for RabbitMQ limits the number of queues. If you no longer need to use a queue, you can delete the queue in the Message Queue for RabbitMQ console.

Background information

Message Queue for RabbitMQ messages are stored in one or more queues.


  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 Queues.
  4. On the Queues page, select an instance and a vhost and delete queues based on your requirements.
    • Delete a single queue

      Find the queue that you want to delete and choose icon_more > Delete in the Actions column.

    • Delete multiple queues

      Select the queues that you want to delete and click Batch Delete Queues in the lower part of the Queues page.

  5. In the Tips message, click OK.
    Notice If you delete a queue, the messages that have not been consumed in the queue will also be deleted and cannot be recovered. Proceed with caution.
