Publish an Amazon SNS text message with an attribute using an Amazon SDK

The following code examples show how to publish a message with an attribute using Amazon SNS.

Action examples are code excerpts from larger programs and must be run in context. You can see this action in context in the following code examples:

Amazon SDK for .NET

There's more on GitHub. Find the complete example and learn how to set up and run in the Amazon Code Examples Repository.

Publish a message to a topic with group, duplication, and attribute options.

/// <summary> /// Publish messages using user settings. /// </summary> /// <returns>Async task.</returns> public static async Task PublishMessages() { Console.WriteLine("Now we can publish messages."); var keepSendingMessages = true; string? deduplicationId = null; string? toneAttribute = null; while (keepSendingMessages) { Console.WriteLine(); var message = GetUserResponse("Enter a message to publish.", "This is a sample message"); if (_useFifoTopic) { Console.WriteLine("Because you are using a FIFO topic, you must set a message group ID." + "\r\nAll messages within the same group will be received in the order " + "they were published."); Console.WriteLine(); var messageGroupId = GetUserResponse("Enter a message group ID for this message:", "1"); if (!_useContentBasedDeduplication) { Console.WriteLine("Because you are not using content-based deduplication, " + "you must enter a deduplication ID."); Console.WriteLine("Enter a deduplication ID for this message."); deduplicationId = GetUserResponse("Enter a deduplication ID for this message.", "1"); } if (GetYesNoResponse("Add an attribute to this message?")) { Console.WriteLine("Enter a number for an attribute."); for (int i = 0; i < _tones.Length; i++) { Console.WriteLine($"\t{i + 1}. {_tones[i]}"); } var selection = GetUserResponse("", "1"); int.TryParse(selection, out var selectionNumber); if (selectionNumber > 0 && selectionNumber < _tones.Length) { toneAttribute = _tones[selectionNumber - 1]; } } var messageID = await SnsWrapper.PublishToTopicWithAttribute( _topicArn, message, "tone", toneAttribute, deduplicationId, messageGroupId); Console.WriteLine($"Message published with id {messageID}."); } keepSendingMessages = GetYesNoResponse("Send another message?", false); } }

Apply the user's selections to the publish action.
