We are trying to use Amazon Simple Queue Service(Amazon SQS) as a JMS provider to invalidate the cache for SDL Web microservices. SDL docs have steps to configure ActiveMQ but not for AmazonSQS.

I am wondering if anyone set it up and point out the documents containing the steps?

To clarify to understand correctly.

For content service caching invalidation, you need to use Amazon ActiveMQ, not AmazonSQS.

To setup a scaled-out Content Deployer worker, you could use Apache ActiveMQ or AmazonSQS.

Answer to your question.

For Amazon MQ Setup- Step 1 Configure Basic Broker Settings refer to amazon documentation.

For example, when using Amazon ActiveMQ, you would set the following properties:

<RemoteSynchronization FlushCacheDuringDisconnectInterval="20000" Queuesize="512" ServiceMonitorInterval="10000">
   <Connector Class="com.tridion.cache.JMSCacheChannelConnector" Topic="Tridion">
        <Property Name="java.naming.factory.initial" Value="org.apache.activemq.jndi.ActiveMQInitialContextFactory"/>
        <Property Name="java.naming.provider.url" Value="ssl://xxxxxx-1.mq.eu-central-1.amazonaws.com:61617?soTimeout=5000"/>
        <Property Name="topic.Tridion" Value="ProdLive"/>
        <Property Name="userName" Value="username"/>
        <Property Name="password" Value="password"/>
        <Property Name="trustAllPackages" Value="true"/>

I hope it helps

  • SDL documentation shows that we can use any JMS. So I think Amazon SQS should also be supported. Oct 21, 2019 at 14:14
  • KB article link added to 8.5 documentation with comment that AmazonSQS will not work as that doesn't support a one producer to multiple consumer broadcast. gateway.sdl.com/communityknowledge?articleName=000011210
