Amazon Config now supports Amazon Simple Queue Service (Amazon SQS) in Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) Region, operated by Sinnet, and Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD. Amazon Config provides a detailed view of the configuration of Amazon Web Services resources in your Amazon Web Services account. This includes how the resources are related to one another and how they were configured in the past so that you can see how the configurations and relationships changed over time.

With this launch, you can track changes to the configuration of SQS queues, such as queue policy, version, tags, message settings (such as message size, visibility time out), server side encryption and first-in first-out (FIFO) queue settings. You can also create change-triggered Amazon Config rules to help you verify whether these changes comply with your internal governance policies, regulatory standards, and best practices on a continuous and real-time basis.  

Get started by enabling Amazon Config in your account by using the Amazon Config console or the Amazon CLI. Select the resource types for which you want to track changes. If you previously configured Amazon Config to record all resource types, then SQS resources will be automatically recorded in your account.  

Amazon SQS is a fully managed message queuing service that enables you to decouple and scale microservices, distributed systems, and serverless applications. Amazon SQS eliminates the complexity and overhead associated with managing and operating message oriented middleware, and empowers developers to focus on differentiating work. 

There are no additional Amazon SQS costs to use these features. For configuration items and Config rules, Amazon Config charges apply. For the full list of services supported by Amazon Config, visit the Supported Amazon Web Services Resources Types webpage
