PHP Laravel 5 Queue Driver package to support Microsoft Azure Storage Queues


  • PHP 5.6+, PHP 7+ for Laravel 5.5+, PHP 7.1+ for Laravel 5.6 and 5.7
  • Laravel 5.2 - 5.7 (not tested on previous versions)
  • Microsoft Azure Storage account and API key

Install using composer

You can find this library on Packagist.

Require this package in your composer.json. The version numbers will follow Laravel.

Laravel 5.2.x

"squigg/azure-queue-laravel": "5.2.*"
composer require squigg/azure-queue-laravel:5.2.* 

Laravel 5.3.x

"squigg/azure-queue-laravel": "5.3.*"
composer require squigg/azure-queue-laravel:5.3.*

Laravel 5.4.x

"squigg/azure-queue-laravel": "5.4.*"
composer require squigg/azure-queue-laravel:5.4.*

Laravel 5.5.x

"squigg/azure-queue-laravel": "5.5.*"
composer require squigg/azure-queue-laravel:5.5.*

Laravel 5.6.x

"squigg/azure-queue-laravel": "5.6.*"
composer require squigg/azure-queue-laravel:5.6.*

Laravel 5.7.x

"squigg/azure-queue-laravel": "5.7.*"
composer require squigg/azure-queue-laravel:5.7.*
For versions 5.3 and older only

Add the following pear repository in your composer.json file required for the Microsoft Azure SDK (v5.4+ uses the microsoft/azure-storage package instead, and v5.6+ uses microsoft/azure-storage-queue):

"repositories": [
        "type": "pear",
        "url": "http://pear.php.net"

Update Composer dependencies

composer update


Add Provider

If you are not using Laravel auto package discovery, add the ServiceProvider to your providers array in config/app.php:


For Lumen (5.x) you will need to add the provider to bootstrap/app.php:


Add Azure queue configuration

Add the following to the connections array in config/queue.php, and fill out your own connection data from the Azure Management portal:

'azure' => [
    'driver'        => 'azure',                             // Leave this as-is
    'protocol'      => 'https',                             // https or http
    'accountname'   => env('AZURE_QUEUE_STORAGE_NAME'),     // Azure storage account name
    'key'           => env('AZURE_QUEUE_KEY'),              // Access key for storage account
    'queue'         => env('AZURE_QUEUE_NAME'),             // Queue container name
    'timeout'       => 60                                   // Seconds before a job is released back to the queue
    'endpoint'      => env('AZURE_QUEUE_ENDPOINTSUFFIX'),   // Optional endpoint suffix if different from core.windows.net

Add environment variables into your .env file to set the above configuration parameters if you prefer:


Set the default Laravel queue

Update the default queue used by Laravel by setting the QUEUE_DRIVER value in your .env file to azure.



Use the normal Laravel Queue functionality as per the documentation.

Remember to update the default queue by setting the QUEUE_DRIVER value in your .env file to azure.
