While deploying queues from vs code using sfdx cli, I'm getting below error:

ERROR running force:source:deploy:  The specified metadata type is unsupported: [queues]

It seems it's not supported.

  • Where is your metadata coming from ? The expected metadata api name is Queue, not queues. – Fabien Taillon Apr 22 '20 at 19:56
  • Likewise, this contains good info for supported metadata types with regards to various situations. Queue seems to be supported for source tracking and metadata API so I would expect it to work. – Kris Goncalves Apr 22 '20 at 20:00

Yes, queues are supported.

sfdx force:source:deploy -p force-app/main/default/queues

The expected file name format is:


And the expected contents should look like:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<Queue xmlns="http://soap.sforce.com/2006/04/metadata">

You'll want to refer to the Metadata API documentation for details.
