[ aws . sqs ]

delete-queue

Description

Deletes the queue specified by the QueueUrl , regardless of the queue's contents. If the specified queue doesn't exist, Amazon SQS returns a successful response.

Warning

Be careful with the DeleteQueue action: When you delete a queue, any messages in the queue are no longer available.

When you delete a queue, the deletion process takes up to 60 seconds. Requests you send involving that queue during the 60 seconds might succeed. For example, a `` SendMessage `` request might succeed, but after 60 seconds the queue and the message you sent no longer exist.

When you delete a queue, you must wait at least 60 seconds before creating a queue with the same name.

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 Simple Queue Service Developer Guide .

Synopsis

  delete-queue
--queue-url <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--queue-url (string)

The URL of the Amazon SQS queue to delete.

Queue URLs and names are case-sensitive.

--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.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.
