This article provides examples of how to view event information within ActiveMQ


Viewing events in ActiveMQ

  2. Navigate to the Topics page in ActiveMQ admin.

  3. Trigger an event. Afterwards an events topic should appear in the topics page.

  4. To view the contents of the events topic you must create an on_message listener. The attached python script provides said listener and displays event messages. Configure the following values according to your ActiveMQ instance.

    conn = Connection(host_and_ports=[
                      ('<YOUR-ACTIVEMQ-WEB-CONSOLE-URL>', 61614)])
                 ('<YOUR-ACTIVEMQ-WEB-CONSOLE-URL>', 61614)])
    conn.connect('<AMQ-USERNAME>', '<AMQ-PASSWORD>', wait=True)
    conn.subscribe('/topic/<EVENT-TOPIC-NAME>', 'a_client_id')


    conn = Connection(host_and_ports=[
                      ('', 61614)])
                 ('', 61614)])
    conn.connect('amq', 'amq123password', wait=True)
    conn.subscribe('/topic/cloud_events_x', 'a_client_id')
  5. After configuring the values, you should now be able to run the script and view topic messages when an event is triggered.

    Your ActiveMQ Topics page should now look similar to this:

    With a consumer added for your cloud_events.
