Chapter 17. Configuring Delayed Redelivery

Delayed redelivery to an address is defined by the redelivery-delay attribute of an address-setting configuration element. If a redelivery delay is specified, JBoss EAP waits for the duration of this delay before redelivering messages. If redelivery-delay is set to 0, there is no redelivery delay. To get the current value of redelivery-delay for a given address-setting, use the following management CLI command as an example.

/subsystem=messaging-activemq/server=default/address-setting=YOUR_ADDRESS_SETTING:read-attribute(name=redelivery-delay)

The table below lists the configuration attributes of an address-setting that can be used to configure the redelivery of messages. Set the value for a given attribute using the following management CLI command as an example.

/subsystem=messaging-activemq/server=default/address-setting=YOUR_ADDRESS_SETTING:write-attribute(name=ATTRIBUTE,value=NEW_VALUE)
