What isn't sending data where? The curl_json plugin to the URL that has been
configured? Could it be that the SSL certificate isn't properly verified so
curl aborts the connection with a verification error before it sends the
request? Or do you mean the curl_json plugin data isn't ending up in RabbitMQ?
