Access denied to SQS via AWS SDK

I'm currently working on a website developed with Symfony2 and I need to send messages in an Amazon SQS. In order to do that I added to my composer.json:

"aws/aws-sdk-php": "2.4.*"

Then when I try to create a queue or list queues I've got a 403 error saying:

Access to the resource is denied.

EDIT: added the full error message

AWS Error Code: AccessDenied, Status Code: 403, AWS Request ID: 2fe34c11-7af8-5445-a768-070159a0953e, AWS Error Type: client, AWS Error Message: Access to the resource is denied., User-Agent: aws-sdk-php2/2.4.11 Guzzle/3.7.4 curl/7.25.0 PHP/5.4.3

Here is a sample code of what I do:

$aws = Aws::factory(array(
  'key'    => 'my-key',
  'secret' => 'my-secret',
  'region' => 'us-west-2'

$sqs = $aws->get('sqs');

return new Response(var_dump($sqs->listQueues()));

What do I do wrong to get this error ?

  • After digging I discovered that the account I was using wasn't granted the access to SQS service.

    To give a SQS access to an account you have to go to the amazon management console. Then click on IAM. Under this section click on Users and then you can manage permission for each account you created.
