Remove cost allocation tags from the specified Amazon SQS queue. For an overview, see Tagging Amazon SQS Queues in the Amazon Simple Queue Service Developer Guide .

When you use queue tags, keep the following guidelines in mind:

  • Adding more than 50 tags to a queue isn't recommended.
  • Tags don't have any semantic meaning. Amazon SQS interprets tags as character strings.
  • Tags are case-sensitive.
  • A new tag with a key identical to that of an existing tag overwrites the existing tag.
  • Tagging API actions are limited to 5 TPS per AWS account. If your application requires a higher throughput, file a technical support request .

For a full list of tag restrictions, see Limits Related to Queues in the Amazon Simple Queue Service Developer Guide .

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.
