list-queues

Description

Returns a list of your queues in the current region. The response includes a maximum of 1,000 results. If you specify a value for the optional QueueNamePrefix parameter, only queues with a name that begins with the specified value are returned.

The listQueues methods supports pagination. Set parameter MaxResults in the request to specify the maximum number of results to be returned in the response. If you do not set MaxResults , the response includes a maximum of 1,000 results. If you set MaxResults and there are additional results to display, the response includes a value for NextToken . Use NextToken as a parameter in your next request to listQueues to receive the next page of results.

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 .

See ‘aws help’ for descriptions of global parameters.

list-queues is a paginated operation. Multiple API calls may be issued in order to retrieve the entire data set of results. You can disable pagination by providing the --no-paginate argument. When using --output text and the --query argument on a paginated response, the --query argument must extract data from the results of the following query expressions: QueueUrls

Synopsis

  list-queues
[--queue-name-prefix <value>]
[--cli-input-json | --cli-input-yaml]
[--starting-token <value>]
[--page-size <value>]
[--max-items <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]
[--cli-auto-prompt <value>]

Options

--queue-name-prefix (string)

A string to use for filtering the list results. Only those queues whose name begins with the specified string are returned.

Queue URLs and names are case-sensitive.

--cli-input-json | --cli-input-yaml (string) Reads arguments from the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, those 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. This may not be specified along with --cli-input-yaml.

--starting-token (string)

A token to specify where to start paginating. This is the NextToken from a previously truncated response.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--page-size (integer)

The size of each page to get in the AWS service call. This does not affect the number of items returned in the command’s output. Setting a smaller page size results in more calls to the AWS service, retrieving fewer items in each call. This can help prevent the AWS service calls from timing out.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--max-items (integer)

The total number of items to return in the command’s output. If the total number of items available is more than the value specified, a NextToken is provided in the command’s output. To resume pagination, provide the NextToken value in the starting-token argument of a subsequent command. Do not use the NextToken response element directly outside of the AWS CLI.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--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. Similarly, if provided yaml-input it will print a sample input YAML that can be used with --cli-input-yaml. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

--cli-auto-prompt (boolean) Automatically prompt for CLI input parameters.

See ‘aws help’ for descriptions of global parameters.

Examples

To list queues

This example lists all queues.

Command:

aws sqs list-queues

Output:

{
  "QueueUrls": [
    "https://queue.amazonaws.com/80398EXAMPLE/MyDeadLetterQueue",
    "https://queue.amazonaws.com/80398EXAMPLE/MyQueue",
    "https://queue.amazonaws.com/80398EXAMPLE/MyOtherQueue",
    "https://queue.amazonaws.com/80398EXAMPLE/TestQueue1",
        "https://queue.amazonaws.com/80398EXAMPLE/TestQueue2"
  ]
}

This example lists only queues that start with “My”.

Command:

aws sqs list-queues --queue-name-prefix My

Output:

{
  "QueueUrls": [
    "https://queue.amazonaws.com/80398EXAMPLE/MyDeadLetterQueue",
    "https://queue.amazonaws.com/80398EXAMPLE/MyQueue",
    "https://queue.amazonaws.com/80398EXAMPLE/MyOtherQueue"
  ]
}

Output

QueueUrls -> (list)

A list of queue URLs, up to 1,000 entries, or the value of MaxResults that you sent in the request.

(string)

NextToken -> (string)

Pagination token to include in the next request. Token value is null if there are no additional results to request, or if you did not set MaxResults in the request.
