Golang SQS GetQueueAttributesInput

Trying to get attributes for an AWS SQS queue. I am just starting to use golang sdk v2. I am getting the following error during compile:

cannot use []*string{…} (type []*string) as type []“github.com/aws/aws-sdk-go-v2/service/sqs/types”.QueueAttributeName in field value

Code being executed is:

params := &sqs.GetQueueAttributesInput{
                  QueueUrl: aws.String(queueUrl[i]),
                  AttributeNames: []*string{
 resp, err := client.GetQueueAttributes(context.TODO(), params)

Is this a golang aws sdk v1/v2 issue? Any ideas on how to fix this? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

the error says you should not use a slice of string pointers, but a slice of types.QueueAttributeName.

Most likely your aws library comes with some predefined constants, one of them for QueueArn.
