Delete a Message from an Amazon SQS Queue

You can use the Amazon SDK for .NET to receive messages from an Amazon SQS queue.

To delete a message from an Amazon SQS queue

  1. Create and initialize a DeleteMessageRequest instance. Specify the Amazon SQS queue to delete a message from and the receipt handle of the message to delete, as follows:

    DeleteMessageRequest deleteMessageRequest = new DeleteMessageRequest(); deleteMessageRequest.QueueUrl = queueUrl; deleteMessageRequest.ReceiptHandle = recieptHandle;
  2. Pass the request object as a parameter to the DeleteMessage method. The method returns a DeleteMessageResponse object, as follows:

    DeleteMessageResponse response = amazonSQSClient.DeleteMessage(deleteMessageRequest);

    Calling DeleteMessage unconditionally removes the message from the queue, regardless of the visibility timeout setting. For more information about visibility timeouts, go to Visibility Timeout.
