Does Magento 2.4.2 (2.4.x) open source REQUIRE asynchronous message queueing (and thus installation of RabbitMQ) by default?
I was under the impression that 'asynchronous message queueing' is an option and not a requirement.
But after installation I see a common error out there with ["async.operations.all" skipped as required connection "amqp" is not configured"]. With this error log message it seems the default installation requires amqp (Async message queue protocol) connection configuration and thus RabbitMQ -- as a default setup -- which means Asynchronous message queueing is REQUIRED for Magento 2.4 to work in a base/default setup.
Is this correct? AMQP and RabbitMQ are REQUIRED (not an option)?
I see lots of confusion on the net about this .. including this thread: Consumer "async.operations.all" skipped as required connection "amqp" is not configured. Unknown connection name amqp
But in the above thread there doesn't seem to be a consensus. It seems to me so far that RabbitMQ is required by default for Magento 2.4 to work properly. Can anyone confirm?
Thanks In Advance
