This AWS Solutions Construct implements an Amazon S3 Bucket that is configured to send notifications to an Amazon SQS queue.

Here is a minimal deployable pattern definition:


import { Construct } from 'constructs';
import { Stack, StackProps } from 'aws-cdk-lib';
import { S3ToSqs } from "@aws-solutions-constructs/aws-s3-sqs";

new S3ToSqs(this, 'S3ToSQSPattern', {});


from aws_solutions_constructs.aws_s3_sqs import S3ToSqs
from aws_cdk import Stack
from constructs import Construct

S3ToSqs(self, 'S3ToSQSPattern')


import software.constructs.Construct;

import software.amazon.awscdk.Stack;
import software.amazon.awscdk.StackProps;
import software.amazon.awsconstructs.services.s3sqs.*;

new S3ToSqs(this, "S3ToSQSPattern", new S3ToSqsProps.Builder()

Pattern Construct Props

Name Type Description
existingBucketObj? s3.Bucket Existing instance of S3 Bucket object. If this is provided, then also providing bucketProps is an error.
bucketProps? s3.BucketProps Optional user provided props to override the default props for the S3 Bucket.
s3EventTypes? s3.EventType[] The S3 event types that will trigger the notification. Defaults to s3.EventType.OBJECT_CREATED.
s3EventFilters? s3.NotificationKeyFilter[] S3 object key filter rules to determine which objects trigger this event. If not specified no filter rules will be applied.
existingQueueObj? sqs.Queue Existing SQS queue to be used instead of the default queue. Providing both this and queueProps will cause an error. If the SQS queue is encrypted, the KMS key utilized for encryption must be a customer managed CMK.
queueProps? sqs.QueueProps Optional user provided props to override the default props for the SQS queue.
deadLetterQueueProps? sqs.QueueProps Optional user provided props to override the default props for the dead letter SQS queue.
deployDeadLetterQueue? boolean Whether to create a secondary queue to be used as a dead letter queue. Defaults to true.
maxReceiveCount? number The number of times a message can be unsuccessfully dequeued before being moved to the dead letter queue. Defaults to 15.
enableEncryptionWithCustomerManagedKey? boolean If no key is provided, this flag determines whether the queue is encrypted with a new CMK or an AWS managed key. This flag is ignored if any of the following are defined: queueProps.encryptionMasterKey, encryptionKey or encryptionKeyProps.
encryptionKey? kms.Key An optional, imported encryption key to encrypt the SQS Queue with.
encryptionKeyProps? kms.KeyProps Optional user provided properties to override the default properties for the KMS encryption key used to encrypt the SQS queue with.
loggingBucketProps? s3.BucketProps Optional user provided props to override the default props for the S3 Logging Bucket.
logS3AccessLogs? boolean Whether to turn on Access Logging for the S3 bucket. Creates an S3 bucket with associated storage costs for the logs. Enabling Access Logging is a best practice. default - true

Pattern Properties

Name Type Description
sqsQueue sqs.Queue Returns an instance of the SQS queue created by the pattern.
deadLetterQueue? sqs.Queue Returns an instance of the dead-letter SQS queue created by the pattern.
encryptionKey kms.IKey Returns an instance of kms.Key used for the SQS queue.
s3Bucket? s3.Bucket Returns an instance of the s3.Bucket created by the construct
s3LoggingBucket? s3.Bucket Returns an instance of s3.Bucket created by the construct as the logging bucket for the primary bucket.
s3BucketInterface s3.IBucket Returns an instance of s3.IBucket created by the construct.

Default settings

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

Amazon S3 Bucket

  • Configure Access logging for S3 Bucket
  • Enable server-side encryption for S3 Bucket using AWS managed KMS Key
  • Enforce encryption of data in transit
  • Turn on the versioning for S3 Bucket
  • Don't allow public access for S3 Bucket
  • Retain the S3 Bucket when deleting the CloudFormation stack
  • Applies Lifecycle rule to move noncurrent object versions to Glacier storage after 90 days

Amazon SQS Queue

  • Configure least privilege access permissions for SQS Queue
  • Deploy SQS dead-letter queue for the source SQS Queue
  • Enable server-side encryption for SQS Queue using Customer managed KMS Key
  • Enforce encryption of data in transit
