What does this mean?

If this insight is triggered, you may have misconfigured a consumer function to your SQS queue, or the consumer is not getting access to the queue.

SQS Queue is not worked on. How do I fix this?

Check the following things.

  • You configured a consumer for that queue correctly.
  • The consumer has permission to access the queue.
  • The consumer doesn’t have any errors.
