DROP QUEUE <object>
[ ; ]

<object> ::=
{
    [ database_name . [ schema_name ] . | schema_name . ]
        queue_name
}

database_name

The name of the database that contains the queue to drop. When no database_name is provided, defaults to the current database.

schema_name (object)

The name of the schema that owns the queue to drop. When no schema_name is provided, defaults to the default schema for the current user.

queue_name

The name of the queue to drop.

You cannot drop a queue if any services refer to the queue.

Permission for dropping a queue defaults to the owner of the queue, members of the db_ddladmin or db_owner fixed database roles, and members of the sysadmin fixed server role.

The following example drops the ExpenseQueue queue from the current database.

DROP QUEUE ExpenseQueue ;
