Check configuration of Abiquo Events on the Abiquo Server

The M module works with an Abiquo user, which is called “default_outbound_api_user”. This user has access to all events, with the role called OUTBOUND_API.

Configure M for events

If you do not configure M properly, no events will be available in Abiquo. 

In a fresh install, Abiquo will automatically configure M, but if you change the M user or password, you must update the M user account details in the abiquo.properties file on the server where M will run, which by default is the Abiquo Server.. 

If you are upgrading Abiquo, depending on the version, you must set the instance ID, the API location, and enter the M user account details in the abiquo.properties file on the server where M will run, which by default is the Abiquo Server. 


The instance ID must be unique for each instance of Abiquo M. The API location must be an externally accessible IP and port, and you should specify the API port to ensure that an event streaming user with a regular user role can access events. The API location IP address cannot be a localhost value (127.0.0.1 or localhost).

Example of manual M configuration

Here is sample of a manual M configuration.

abiquo.m.identity = default_outbound_api_user
abiquo.m.credential = AbiquoMPassword
abiquo.server.api.location = http://my.api.location:80/api
