[ aws . sqs ]



Returns the URL of an existing queue. This action provides a simple way to retrieve the URL of an Amazon SQS queue.

To access a queue that belongs to another AWS account, use the QueueOwnerAWSAccountId parameter to specify the account ID of the queue's owner. The queue's owner must grant you permission to access the queue. For more information about shared queue access, see `` add-permission `` or see Shared Queues in the Amazon Simple Queue Service Developer Guide .

--queue-name (string)

The name of the queue whose URL must be fetched. Maximum 80 characters. Valid values: alphanumeric characters, hyphens (- ), and underscores (_ ).

Queue names are case-sensitive.

--queue-owner-aws-account-id (string)

The AWS account ID of the account that created the queue.

--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.
