type SetQueueAttributesInput struct { Attributes map[string]*string `locationName:"Attribute" locationNameKey:"Name" locationNameValue:"Value" type:"map" flattened:"true" required:"true"` QueueUrl *string `type:"string" required:"true"` }


Type: map[string]*string

A map of attributes to set.

The following lists the names, descriptions, and values of the special request parameters that the SetQueueAttributes action uses:

  • DelaySeconds - The length of time, in seconds, for which the delivery of all messages in the queue is delayed. Valid values: An integer from 0 to 900 (15 minutes). Default: 0.

  • MaximumMessageSize - The limit of how many bytes a message can contain before Amazon SQS rejects it. Valid values: An integer from 1,024 bytes

(1 KiB) up to 262,144 bytes (256 KiB). Default: 262,144 (256 KiB).
  • MessageRetentionPeriod - The length of time, in seconds, for which Amazon SQS retains a message. Valid values: An integer representing seconds, from 60 (1 minute) to 1,209,600 (14 days). Default: 345,600 (4 days).

  • ReceiveMessageWaitTimeSeconds - The length of time, in seconds, for which a ReceiveMessage action waits for a message to arrive. Valid values: an integer from 0 to 20 (seconds). Default: 0.

deadLetterTargetArn - The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the dead-letter queue

to which Amazon SQS moves messages after the value of maxReceiveCount is exceeded.

maxReceiveCount - The number of times a message is delivered to the source

queue before being moved to the dead-letter queue. When the ReceiveCount for a message exceeds the maxReceiveCount for a queue, Amazon SQS moves the message to the dead-letter-queue.

The dead-letter queue of a FIFO queue must also be a FIFO queue. Similarly,

the dead-letter queue of a standard queue must also be a standard queue.
  • VisibilityTimeout - The visibility timeout for the queue, in seconds. Valid values: an integer from 0 to 43,200 (12 hours). Default: 30. For more information about the visibility timeout, see Visibility Timeout

( in the Amazon Simple Queue Service Developer Guide.

The following attributes apply only to server-side-encryption (

(24 hours). Default: 300 (5 minutes). A shorter time period provides better security but results in more calls to KMS which might incur charges after Free Tier. For more information, see How Does the Data Key Reuse Period Work? (

The following attribute applies only to FIFO (first-in-first-out) queues (

Every message must have a unique MessageDeduplicationId,

You may provide a MessageDeduplicationId explicitly.

If you aren't able to provide a MessageDeduplicationId and you enable ContentBasedDeduplication

for your queue, Amazon SQS uses a SHA-256 hash to generate the MessageDeduplicationId using the body of the message (but not the attributes of the message).

If you don't provide a MessageDeduplicationId and the queue doesn't have

ContentBasedDeduplication set, the action fails with an error.

If the queue has ContentBasedDeduplication set, your MessageDeduplicationId

overrides the generated one.

When ContentBasedDeduplication is in effect, messages with identical content

sent within the deduplication interval are treated as duplicates and only one copy of the message is delivered.

If you send one message with ContentBasedDeduplication enabled and then another

message with a MessageDeduplicationId that is the same as the one generated for the first MessageDeduplicationId, the two messages are treated as duplicates and only one copy of the message is delivered.

Attributes is a required field


Type: *string

The URL of the Amazon SQS queue whose attributes are set.

Queue URLs and names are case-sensitive.

QueueUrl is a required field



func (s SetQueueAttributesInput) GoString() string

GoString returns the string representation


func (s *SetQueueAttributesInput) SetAttributes(v map[string]*string) *SetQueueAttributesInput

SetAttributes sets the Attributes field's value.


func (s *SetQueueAttributesInput) SetQueueUrl(v string) *SetQueueAttributesInput

SetQueueUrl sets the QueueUrl field's value.


func (s SetQueueAttributesInput) String() string

String returns the string representation


func (s *SetQueueAttributesInput) Validate() error

Validate inspects the fields of the type to determine if they are valid.
