Verify operation

Verify operation of the Messaging service by creating messages via curl utility:

$ curl -i -X POST http://ZAQAR_ENDPOINT:8888/v2/queues/samplequeue/messages \
  -d '{"messages": [{"body": {"event": 1}, "ttl": 600}, {"body": {"event": 2}, "ttl": 600}]}' \
  -H "Content-type: application/json" \
  -H "Client-ID: CLIENT_ID" \
  -H "X-Auth-Token: TOKEN"

Replace CLIENT_ID variable with the universally unique identifier (UUID) which can be generated by, for example, uuidgen utility.

Replace TOKEN variable with the authentication token retrieved from Identity service. If you choose not to enable Keystone authentication you won’t have to pass a token.

Replace ZAQAR_ENDPOINT variable with the endpoint of Messaging service.

The normal response would be with status code 201 and look something like this:

HTTP/1.1 201 Created
content-length: 135
content-type: application/json; charset=UTF-8
location: http://ZAQAR_ENDPOINT:8888/v2/queues/samplequeue/messages?ids=575f6f2515e5c87d779a9b20,575f6f2515e5c87d779a9b21
