Custom configuration

var custom = {
    _id: "rabbitSample:1",
    _name: "SIB RabbitMQ Caller Sample",
    getQ: (topic, msg, callback )=>{callback(this.custom.q);},
    loggerCfg: {
        dest: {
            file: false,
            console: true,
            mqtt: true
    inputFormat: (topic, msg, cb)=>{
    rabbitmq: "amqp://localhost",
    q: [
        {path: "path/to/queue", durable: true, archive: "path/to/queue/archive"}

  • _id: The unique ID of this service
  • _name: A plaintext description of this service
  • getQ: Is run before publishing messages onto MQ, the callback is sent a q array as described below and determins which queues to publish messages to. The queues returned by this method must be set in the default.q array OR be created manually in RabbitMQ for this to work
  • inputFormat(topic, msg, cb): The method that is run on service activation. The original message is passed as the argument and the return value from this method must be a JSON formatted message conforming to the SIB message standard.
