SQS Message retrival after message is deleted


Hi Team, we have these aws sqs queues whose retention period is of 4 days. The messages were not retrieved between these 4 days and now those messages are not available. is there any way to retrieve those messages from that queue?

SQS deltes the message after reaching the retention period. There is no way to retrieve those messages any more.

You might want to monitor the ApproximateAgeOfOldestMessage metric to avoid something like this happening in the future as described at Monitor SQS queues with CloudWatch metrics and alarms.
