Creating a MSMQ queue with Powershell

In Powershell, we can create a MSMQ queue using. In addition we can set the Access Control rights on the queue readily.


#MSMQ Queue Creation Tool (Powershell) 
 
 
#Setup the script here 
 
$queueName = ".\somepublicqueue"
$userNameWithFullPermission = "somedomain\someuser" #adjust username here 
 
 
 
Write-Host "MSMQ Queue creation tool" 
 
Write-Host "" 
 
Write-Host "Loading the .NET Messaging assembly ...." 
 
[Reflection.Assembly]::LoadWithPartialName("System.Messaging") 
 
Write-Host "Loaded System.Messaging assembly." 
 
Write-Host ""
 
Write-Host "Creating MSMQ PublicQueue" 
 
 
if (![System.Messaging.MessageQueue]::Exists($queueName)){
    Write-Host "Creating queue with name: $queueName"
    $queue = [System.Messaging.MessageQueue]::Create($queueName) 
    Write-Host "Queue created."
    Write-Host "Setting up permissions on queue $queueName Giving full permission to user: $userNameWithFullPermission"
 
    $queue.SetPermissions($userNameWithFullPermission, 
                          [System.Messaging.MessageQueueAccessRights]::FullControl, 
                          [System.Messaging.AccessControlEntryType]::Set) 
    Write-Host "Queue permissions set."
}
else {
    Write-Host "Queue already exists." 
}
 
Write-Host "The following public queues were found on this machine" 
 
$queues = [System.Messaging.MessageQueue]::GetPublicQueuesByMachine(".") 
 
foreach ($q in $queues){
 Write-Host "        "$q.QueueName -ForegroundColor Yellow
}
 
Write-Host "Done.";
