add-permission

Description

Adds a permission to a queue for a specific principal . This allows sharing access to the queue.

When you create a queue, you have full control access rights for the queue. Only you, the owner of the queue, can grant or deny permissions to the queue. For more information about these permissions, see Allow Developers to Write Messages to a Shared Queue in the Amazon SQS Developer Guide .

Note

  • AddPermission generates a policy for you. You can use `` SetQueueAttributes `` to upload your policy. For more information, see Using Custom Policies with the Amazon SQS Access Policy Language in the Amazon SQS Developer Guide .
  • An Amazon SQS policy can have a maximum of 7 actions.
  • To remove the ability to change queue permissions, you must deny permission to the AddPermission , RemovePermission , and SetQueueAttributes actions in your IAM policy.

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:

&AttributeName.1=first

&AttributeName.2=second

Note

Cross-account permissions don't apply to this action. For more information, see Grant cross-account permissions to a role and a user name in the Amazon SQS 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. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally.

--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.
