How to Get Started With Amazon SQS

There are two things you'll need to do to make SQS work with Zapier:

  1. Add a new queue in SQS (if you already use SQS you probably already have one you want to use, if not, directions are below as well).
  2. Add a new Zapier user via IAM with only permission to use SQS and give those AWS Security Credentials to Zapier.

Add a New SQS Queue

Navigate to SQS by clicking the icon from your AWS dashboard. Then click the "Create New Queue" button near the top left corner.

A dialog will pop up. Fill it out to your liking and hit the create button.

Create Security Credentials by Adding a New Zapier User to IAM

To add an SQS account to Zapier, you should follow these instructions. They will walk you through setting up a user in IAM and adding that account to Zapier. Remember that you want to select SQS instead of SES where applicable.
