Quick Start

Welcome to KubeMQ!

In this guide, we’ll walk you through how to install KubeMQ into your Kubernetes cluster.

Before we can do anything, we need to ensure you have access to a Kubernetes cluster running 1.16 or later, and a functioning kubectl command on your local machine. (One easy option is to run Kubernetes on your local machine. We suggest Docker Desktop or Minikube, but there are many options.)

Step 0:

Obtain KubeMQ License Key

  1. Please visit: https://account.kubemq.io/login/register and register for a license token.

  2. Wait for an email confirmation with your license Key

Step 1:


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

Step 2:

Install kubemqctl CLI tool

sudo curl -sL https://get.kubemq.io/install | sudo sh

Step 3:

Send 'Hello World'

kubemqctl queue send my-queue hello-world

Get 'Hello World'

kubemqctl queue receive my-queue

Step 4:

Load KubeMQ Dashboard

kubemqctl get dashboard
