Configuring tags for a queue - Amazon Simple Queue Service
Services or capabilities described in Amazon Web Services documentation might vary by Region. To see the differences applicable to the China Regions, see Getting Started with Amazon Web Services in China.

Configuring tags for a queue

Use cost-allocation tags to help organize and identify your Amazon SQS queues. The following examples show how to configure tags using the Amazon SDK for Java. For more information, see Amazon SQS cost allocation tags.

Before you run the example code, make sure that you have set your Amazon credentials. For more information, see Set up Amazon Credentials and Region for Development in the Amazon SDK for Java 2.x Developer Guide.

Listing tags

To list the tags for a queue, use the ListQueueTags method.

// Create an SqsClient for the specified region. SqsClient sqsClient = SqsClient.builder().region(Region.US_WEST_1).build(); // Get the queue URL. String queueName = "MyStandardQ1"; GetQueueUrlResponse getQueueUrlResponse = sqsClient.getQueueUrl(GetQueueUrlRequest.builder().queueName(queueName).build()); String queueUrl = getQueueUrlResponse.queueUrl(); // Create the ListQueueTagsRequest. final ListQueueTagsRequest listQueueTagsRequest = ListQueueTagsRequest.builder().queueUrl(queueUrl).build(); // Retrieve the list of queue tags and print them. final ListQueueTagsResponse listQueueTagsResponse = sqsClient.listQueueTags(listQueueTagsRequest); System.out.println(String.format("ListQueueTags: \tTags for queue %s are %s.\n", queueName, listQueueTagsResponse.tags() ));

Adding or updating tags

To add or update tag values for a queue, use the TagQueue method.

// Create an SqsClient for the specified Region. SqsClient sqsClient = SqsClient.builder().region(Region.US_WEST_1).build(); // Get the queue URL. String queueName = "MyStandardQ1"; GetQueueUrlResponse getQueueUrlResponse = sqsClient.getQueueUrl(GetQueueUrlRequest.builder().queueName(queueName).build()); String queueUrl = getQueueUrlResponse.queueUrl(); // Build a hashmap of the tags. final HashMap<String, String> addedTags = new HashMap<>(); addedTags.put("Team", "Development"); addedTags.put("Priority", "Beta"); addedTags.put("Accounting ID", "456def"); //Create the TagQueueRequest and add them to the queue. final TagQueueRequest tagQueueRequest = TagQueueRequest.builder() .queueUrl(queueUrl) .tags(addedTags) .build(); sqsClient.tagQueue(tagQueueRequest);

Removing tags

To remove one or more tags from the queue, use the UntagQueue method. The following example removes the Accounting ID tag.

// Create the UntagQueueRequest. final UntagQueueRequest untagQueueRequest = UntagQueueRequest.builder() .queueUrl(queueUrl) .tagKeys("Accounting ID") .build(); // Remove the tag from this queue. sqsClient.untagQueue(untagQueueRequest);
