    This AWS Solutions Construct implements an AWS IoT MQTT topic rule and an AWS SQS Queue pattern.

    Here is a minimal deployable pattern definition:


    import { Construct } from 'constructs';
    import { Stack, StackProps } from 'aws-cdk-lib';
    import { IotToSqsProps, IotToSqs } from '@aws-solutions-constructs/aws-iot-sqs';
    const constructProps: IotToSqsProps = {
      iotTopicRuleProps: {
        topicRulePayload: {
          ruleDisabled: false,
          description: "Testing the IotToSqs Pattern",
          sql: "SELECT * FROM 'iot/sqs/#'",
          actions: []
    new IotToSqs(this, 'test-iot-sqs-integration', constructProps);


    from aws_solutions_constructs.aws_iot_sqs import IotToSqs
    from aws_cdk import (
        aws_iot as iot,
    from constructs import Construct
    IotToSqs(self, 'test_iot_sqs',
                description="Testing the IotToSqs Pattern",
                sql="SELECT * FROM 'iot/sqs/#'",


    import software.constructs.Construct;
    import java.util.List;
    import software.amazon.awscdk.Stack;
    import software.amazon.awscdk.StackProps;
    import software.amazon.awscdk.services.iot.*;
    import software.amazon.awscdk.services.iot.CfnTopicRule.TopicRulePayloadProperty;
    import software.amazon.awsconstructs.services.iotsqs.*;
    new IotToSqs(this, "test_iot_sqs", new IotToSqsProps.Builder()
            .iotTopicRuleProps(new CfnTopicRuleProps.Builder()
                    .topicRulePayload(new TopicRulePayloadProperty.Builder()
                            .description("Testing the IotToSqs Pattern")
                            .sql("SELECT * FROM 'iot/sqs/#'")

    Pattern Construct Props

    Name Type Description
    iotTopicRuleProps iot.CfnTopicRuleProps User provided CfnTopicRuleProps to override the defaults
    existingQueueObj? sqs.Queue Existing instance of SQS queue object, providing both this and queueProps will cause an error.
    queueProps? sqs.QueueProps User provided props to override the default props for the SQS queue.
    deadLetterQueueProps? sqs.QueueProps Optional user provided properties for the dead letter queue.
    deployDeadLetterQueue? boolean Whether to deploy a secondary queue to be used as a dead letter queue. Default true.
    maxReceiveCount? number The number of times a message can be unsuccessfully dequeued before being moved to the dead-letter queue. Required field if deployDeadLetterQueue=true.
    enableEncryptionWithCustomerManagedKey? boolean Use a KMS Key, either managed by this CDK app, or imported. If importing an encryption key, it must be specified in the encryptionKey property for this construct.
    encryptionKey? kms.Key An optional, imported encryption key to encrypt the SQS queue.
    encryptionKeyProps? kms.KeyProps Optional user-provided props to override the default props for the encryption key.

    Pattern Properties

    Name Type Description
    encryptionKey? kms.Key Returns an instance of kms.Key used for the SQS queue.
    iotActionsRole iam.Role Returns an instance of iam.Role created by the construct, which allows IoT to publish messages to the SQS Queue
    sqsQueue sqs.Queue Returns an instance of sqs.Queue created by the construct
    deadLetterQueue? sqs.Queue Returns an instance of the dead-letter SQS queue created by the pattern.
    iotTopicRule iot.CfnTopicRule Returns an instance of iot.CfnTopicRule created by the construct

    Default settings

    Out of the box implementation of the Construct without any override will set the following defaults:

    Amazon IoT Rule

    • Configure an IoT Rule to send messages to the SQS Queue

    Amazon IAM Role

    • Configure least privilege access IAM role for Amazon IoT to be able to publish messages to the SQS Queue

    Amazon SQS Queue

    • Deploy a dead-letter queue for the source queue.
    • Enable server-side encryption for the source queue using a customer-managed AWS KMS key.
    • Enforce encryption of data in transit.
