Bases: object

Use an SQS Queue as a target for Amazon EventBridge rules.


# publish to an SQS queue every time code is committed
# to a CodeCommit repository
repository.on_commit("onCommit", target=targets.SqsQueue(queue))
  • queue (IQueue) –

  • message (Optional[RuleTargetInput]) – The message to send to the queue. Must be a valid JSON text passed to the target queue. Default: the entire EventBridge event
