API Reference

AWS services or capabilities described in AWS Documentation may vary by region/location. Click Getting Started with Amazon AWS to see specific differences applicable to the China (Beijing) Region.

Container for the parameters to the DeleteMessageBatch operation. Deletes up to ten messages from the specified queue. This is a batch version of DeleteMessage. The result of the action on each message is reported individually in the response.

Because the batch request can result in a combination of successful and unsuccessful actions, you should check for batch errors even when the call returns an HTTP status code of 200.

Some actions take lists of parameters. These lists are specified using the param.n notation. Values of n are integers starting from 1. For example, a parameter list with two elements looks like this:

&Attribute.1=this

&Attribute.2=that

Batch delete messages example

var client = new AmazonSQSClient();

var request = new ReceiveMessageRequest
{
  AttributeNames = new List() { "All" },
  MaxNumberOfMessages = 5,
  QueueUrl = "https://sqs.us-east-1.amazonaws.com/80398EXAMPLE/MyTestQueue",
  VisibilityTimeout = (int)TimeSpan.FromMinutes(10).TotalSeconds,
  WaitTimeSeconds = (int)TimeSpan.FromSeconds(5).TotalSeconds
};

var response = client.ReceiveMessage(request);
var batchEntries = new List();

if (response.Messages.Count > 0)
{
  foreach (var message in response.Messages)
  {
    var batchEntry = new DeleteMessageBatchRequestEntry
    {
      Id = message.MessageId,
      ReceiptHandle = message.ReceiptHandle
    };

    batchEntries.Add(batchEntry);
  }

  var delRequest = new DeleteMessageBatchRequest
  {
    Entries = batchEntries,
    QueueUrl = "https://sqs.us-east-1.amazonaws.com/80398EXAMPLE/MyTestQueue"
  };

  var delResponse = client.DeleteMessageBatch(delRequest);

  if (delResponse.Failed.Count > 0)
  {
    Console.WriteLine("Failed deletions:");

    foreach (var failure in delResponse.Failed)
    {
      Console.WriteLine("  For ID '" + failure.Id + "': ");
      Console.WriteLine("    Code = " + failure.Code);
      Console.WriteLine("    Message = " + failure.Message);
      Console.WriteLine("    Sender's fault? = " + failure.SenderFault);
    }
