ReadOnly access for Users (Allow subscription only)

Hi all

Is it possible in managed “HiveMQ Cloud” to limit user access to subscriptions only? When a client connects with a certain username I want the broker to allow subscriptions from this client, but reject publish messages from this client.


Hi andre,

The free and pay-as-you-go tiers of service do not offer this granularity, but we do in the dedicated tier.

If you are able to self-host, you can also use our offerings in that space to get more control as well. (Download HiveMQ button)

Thanks for your interest in HiveMQ and MQTT!
