Retrieve a JSON array of up to twenty of your queues. This will return the queues themselves, not just a list of them. To retrieve the next twenty queues, use the nextToken string returned with the array.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.


[--list-by <value>]
[--max-results <value>]
[--next-token <value>]
[--order <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--list-by (string) Optional. When you request a list of queues, you can choose to list them alphabetically by NAME or chronologically by CREATION_DATE. If you don't specify, the service will list them by creation date.

Possible values:

  • NAME

--max-results (integer) Optional. Number of queues, up to twenty, that will be returned at one time.

--next-token (string) Use this string, provided with the response to a previous request, to request the next batch of queues.

--order (string) When you request lists of resources, you can optionally specify whether they are sorted in ASCENDING or DESCENDING order. Default varies by resource.

Possible values:


--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.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.
