Input SQS


This input listens on multiple SQS queues for paths to S3 files. It can be used with SQS queues subscribed to SNS topics (with raw_message_delivery subscription) and supports arbitrary payload (plain or json). It never exits.

Supported formats (MessageFormat):

  • “plain”: the message payload is a plain S3 path.
  • “sns”: the payload is an SNS notification
  • “s3::ObjectCreated”: the payload is the message generated by an S3::ObjectCreated notification
  • “json”: the message is an arbitrary JSON string, the S3 path is extracted from it via a jmespath expression specified in MessageExpression.
