Pretty much. Install the management plugin from
http://www.rabbitmq.com/plugins.html, browse to
http://server-name:55672/api/ for API documentation - mirrored at

This seems reasonable. It's possible that if you would be happy with 
anyone being able to publish to your queues but only their owners being 
able to read from them you could forget about the permissions  system 
and just have the queues declared exclusive - but that doesn't sound 
like a great fit so the permissions route is probably correct.
