Creating an Amazon SQS queue

Configure the tSQSQueueCreate component to create an Amazon SQS queue.


  1. Double-click the tSQSQueueCreate component to open its Basic settings view.
  2. Specify the connection details required to access Amazon SQS. In this example, select the Use an existing connection check box and from the Component List drop-down list displayed, select the connection component to reuse its connection details you have already defined.
  3. In the Queue (Name or URL) field, specify the name for the queue to be created. In this example, it is talend.
  4. If needed, specify the attributes for the queue to be created in the Queue Attributes table. In this example, the MessageRetentionPeriod attribute is added and its value is set to 86400, which means Amazon SQS will retain the messages delivered to the queue for 86400 seconds (1 day) instead of the default 345600 seconds (4 day).
