The Get Queue Service Properties operation gets the properties of a storage account’s Queue service, including properties for Storage Analytics and CORS (Cross-Origin Resource Sharing) rules.

For detailed information about CORS rules and evaluation logic, see CORS Support for the Storage Services.

Request

The Get Queue Service Properties request may be specified as follows. HTTPS is recommended. Replace <account-name> with the name of your storage account:

Method Request URI HTTP Version
GET https://<account-name>.queue.core.windows.net/?restype=service&comp=properties HTTP/1.1

Note that the URI must always include the forward slash (/) to separate the host name from the path and query portions of the URI. In the case of this operation, the path portion of the URI is empty.

URI Parameters

The following additional parameters may be specified on the request URI.

Parameter Description
restype=service&comp=properties Required. The combination of both query strings is required to get the storage service properties.
timeout Optional. The timeout parameter is expressed in seconds. For more information, see Setting Timeouts for Queue Service Operations.

Request Headers

The following table describes required and optional request headers.

Request Header Description
Authorization Required. Specifies the authentication scheme, storage account name, and signature. For more information, see Authentication for the Azure Storage Services.
Date or x-ms-date Required. Specifies the Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) for the request. For more information, see Authentication for the Azure Storage Services.
x-ms-version Required for all authenticated requests. Specifies the version of the operation to use for this request. For more information, see Versioning for the Azure Storage Services.
x-ms-client-request-id Optional. Provides a client-generated, opaque value with a 1 KB character limit that is recorded in the analytics logs when storage analytics logging is enabled. Using this header is highly recommended for correlating client-side activities with requests received by the server. For more information, see About Storage Analytics Logging and Azure Logging: Using Logs to Track Storage Requests.

Request Body

None.

Response

The response includes an HTTP status code, a set of response headers, and a response body.

Status Code

A successful operation returns status code 200 (OK).

For information about status codes, see Service Management Status and Error Codes.

Response Headers

The response for this operation includes the following headers. The response may also include additional standard HTTP headers. All standard headers conform to the HTTP/1.1 protocol specification.

Response Header Description
x-ms-request-id A value that uniquely identifies a request made against the service.
x-ms-version Specifies the version of the operation used for the response. For more information, see Versioning for the Azure Storage Services.

Response Body

For version 2012-02-12 and earlier, the format of the response body is as follows:

The following table describes the elements of the response body:

Element Name Description
Logging Groups the Azure Analytics Logging settings.
Metrics Groups the Azure Analytics Metrics settings. The Metrics settings provide a summary of request statistics grouped by API in hourly aggregates for queues.

Sample Request and Response

The following sample URI makes a request to get the Queue service properties for the fictional storage account named myaccount:

GET https://myaccount.queue.core.windows.net/?restype=service&comp=properties HTTP/1.1

The request is sent with the following headers:

x-ms-version: 2013-08-15
