This isn't possible in the version of rabbitmqadmin that ships with 
3.0.1. But I just merged support for arguments. So you can download an 
updated rabbitmqadmin from


and then use it like so:

rabbitmqadmin declare exchange name=test type=topic \

(The single quotes are there to defend the JSON from sh. Quoting rules 
may differ in other shells or on Windows.)

This feature will ship in 3.1.
