# Specifying durable is important as this needs to match the config of the queue which is durable when manually set up
# But this does not work with this permission set as it tries to define a queu

# consumer_queue.subscribe do |delivery_info, properties, content|
# instead we use a basic consume client which we will need to tell customers to use
