MessagePack Serializer

NuGet Package NServiceBus.MessagePack (4.x) | License
This is a community maintained project. License and support are independent of Particular Software.
Target NServiceBus Version: 7.x

Serialize messages with the MessagePack binary format via the MessagePack-CSharp project.


This serializer does not support messages defined as interfaces. If an explicit interface is sent, an exception will be thrown with the following message:

Interface based message are not supported.
Create a class that implements the desired interface

Instead, use a public class with the same contract as the interface. The class can optionally implement any required interfaces.


Customizes the instance of IFormatterResolver used for serialization.

var serialization = endpointConfiguration.UseSerialization<MessagePackSerializer>();

Custom content key

When using additional deserializers or transitioning between different versions of the same serializer it can be helpful to take explicit control over the content type a serializer passes to NServiceBus (to be used for the ContentType header).

var serialization = endpointConfiguration.UseSerialization<MessagePackSerializer>();
