Using Delivery Confirmations with the BlockingConnectionΒΆ

The following code demonstrates how to turn on delivery confirmations with the BlockingConnection and how to check for confirmation from RabbitMQ:

import pika

# Open a connection to RabbitMQ on localhost using all default parameters
connection = pika.BlockingConnection()

# Open the channel
channel = connection.channel()

# Declare the queue
channel.queue_declare(queue="test", durable=True, exclusive=False, auto_delete=False)

# Turn on delivery confirmations
channel.confirm_delivery()

# Send a message
if channel.basic_publish(exchange='test',
                         routing_key='test',
                         body='Hello World!',
                         properties=pika.BasicProperties(content_type='text/plain',
                                                         delivery_mode=1)):
    print 'Message publish was confirmed'
else:
    print 'Message could not be confirmed'
