Who's affected

All customers using ServiceControl 3.7 with AmazonSQS


When trying to retry messages that were moved to the error queue the retry operations fail with

Amazon.SQS.Model.InvalidBatchEntryIdException: A batch entry id can only contain alphanumeric characters, hyphens and underscores. It can be at most 80 letters long. ---> Amazon.Runtime.Internal.HttpErrorResponseException: The remote server returned an error: (400) Bad Request. ---> System.Net.WebException: The remote server returned an error: (400) Bad Request.


NServiceBus.AmazonSQS introduced a batching capability. The batching capability uses the MessageId as a batch id. The batch ID though is restricted to

/// <param name="id">An identifier for a message in this batch used to communicate the result. <note> The <code>Id</code>s of a batch request need to be unique within a request This identifier can have up to 80 characters. The following characters are accepted: alphanumeric characters, hyphens(-), and underscores (_). </note></param>

the staging mechanism uses document IDs as message ids which contain forward slashes.

17:49:49.6345|173|Error|NServiceBus.Transports.SQS.MessageDispatcher|Error while sending batch '1/1', with message ids 'FailedMessages/0b49c4e2-0e9b-411a-0c61-c9c979430a63', to 'Particular.ServiceControl.staging'
