Flowable - setup SQS as queue store

I am trying to setup AWS - SQS as a event queue but cannot seem to find where/how to set / specify the AWS credentials. I’ve already configured the queues on AWS and generated the secret and key id and confirmed the AWS SQS send/recv works by using boto3 SDK.

What I am have a hard time is where/how to specifiy the secret/key credentials for flowable. I’ve installed the Enterprise Trial for flowable on Windows 10 and it works so far.

Please advise on where (clearly) i have to store/confgure the secret/key for SQS. I already edited the flowable-default.properties where i enabled the following two items


but the credentials is a mystery.

Do these instructions offer any help?

Best Regards,


it DOES helps
AWS-SDK uses AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID and AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY, adding this pair to the

user.aws\credentials files does work

while Java SDK uses AWS_ACCESS_KEY and AWS_SECRET_KEY and adding this pair to the environmental variables seem to also work

I thknk.
