IronMQ support for the Laravel queue.

v5.6 2018-02-08 19:51 UTC


This package provides a IronMQ (~4.0 SDK) driver for the Laravel queue system.


This repository is a fork of LaravelCollective IronMQ driver repo.

I've decided to fork and maintain IronMQ driver repository due to lack of support from original authors/maintainers.


  • composer require hydreflab/iron-queue (currently for Laravel 5.6)
  • since Laravel 5.5, no service provider registration is needed
  • prior to Laravel 5.5, register service provider in your config/app.php
    'providers' => [
        // ...
  • configure your iron queue driver in your config/queue.php.
  • set iron as your queue driver in your .env.

To install driver for Laravel 5.x, run composer require hydreflab/iron-queue:5.x.* and replace x with the desired version.

Sample Configuration:

'iron' => [
    'driver'  => 'iron',
    'host'    => 'mq-aws-us-east-1-1.iron.io',
    'token'   => 'your-token',
    'project' => 'your-project-id',
    'queue'   => 'your-queue-name',
    'encrypt' => true,
    'timeout' => 60
