Amazon SQS Integration

The Amazon SQS Trigger has one configuration field: the integration from which it is triggered.


The payload will include the triggering message in the data field. In the general case, an Amazon SQS workflow payload will look like the following:

  "applicationId": "555555555555eeeeeeeeeeee",
  "applicationName": "My Great Application",
  "data": {
