Creates a new standard or FIFO queue. You can pass one or more attributes in the request. Keep the following in mind:
If you don't specify the
FifoQueue attribute, Amazon SQS creates a standard
You can't change the queue type after you create it and you can't convert an existing standard queue into a FIFO queue. You must either create a new FIFO queue for your application or delete your existing standard queue and recreate it as a FIFO queue. For more information, see Moving From a Standard Queue to a FIFO Queue in the Amazon SQS Developer Guide.
If you don't provide a value for an attribute, the queue is created with the default value for the attribute.
If you delete a queue, you must wait at least 60 seconds before creating a queue with the same name.
To successfully create a new queue, you must provide a queue name that adheres to the limits related to queues and is unique within the scope of your queues.
After you create a queue, you must wait at least one second after the queue is created to be able to use the queue.
If you provide the name of an existing queue along with the exact names and values
of all the queue's attributes,
CreateQueue returns the queue URL for
the existing queue.
If the queue name, attribute names, or attribute values don't match an existing queue,
CreateQueue returns an error.
Some actions take lists of parameters. These lists are specified using the
notation. Values of
n are integers starting from 1. For example, a parameter
list with two elements looks like this:
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.
For .NET Core this operation is only available in asynchronous form. Please refer to CreateQueueAsync.

The name of the new queue. The following limits apply to this name: A queue name can have up to 80 characters. Valid values: alphanumeric characters, hyphens (-), and underscores (_). A FIFO queue name must end with the .fifo suffix. Queue URLs and names are case-sensitive.
|QueueDeletedRecentlyException||You must wait 60 seconds after deleting a queue before you can create another queue with the same name.|
|QueueNameExistsException||A queue with this name already exists. Amazon SQS returns this error only if the request includes attributes whose values differ from those of the existing queue.|
