Amazon Simple Queue Service (SQS) is a fully managed message queuing service that enables you to decouple and scale microservices, distributed systems, and serverless applications.
SQS AWS requires the following credentials to authenticate:
- AWS Access Key - this is your Access Key ID for each IAM-user
- AWS Access Secret - this is your Secret access key given to you during the key creation
- AWS Region - z.B. eu-central-1
These keys are displayed upon AWS account or IAM user creation. Should you require new ones, follow these instructions here or here.
The most commonly used region is: Europe (Frankfurt) with queue URL: sqs.eu-central-1.amazonaws.com
