How to set event S3 "Send to SQS queue"?

I want to setup a S3 Bucket event for ObjectCreate (All) to send to a SQS queue (not to trigger the Lambda directly). To set the Lambda in Serverless.yml I would:

  - s3:
      bucket: ${self:custom.secrets.S3_INBOUND_EINVOICE}
      event: s3:ObjectCreated:*

Where can I add “Send to SQS”?

In theory (didn’t try it myself yet) you create the queue and the bucket as a separate resources under resources: and configure S3 to send events to the queue. Something along the lines of

      Type: AWS::S3::Bucket
        BucketName: SourceBucket
            - Event: s3:ObjectCreated:*
              Queue: {"Ref": "DestinationQueue"}

Then you hook your Lambda to the queue according to the fine manual

Did you ever find a way to solve this? I’m having the same issue, and the solution provided by @terotil is not working for me.

Still no go on this… Anyone that has found a solution?

What I am trying to do is to have my function (Lambda) triggered from SQS, but that SQS queue should be “fed” from an S3 Bucket.

I want to be able to create the S3 Bucket, the SQS queue, S3 event trigger for SQS and the SQS trigger for the Lambda from Serverless.
