Get AUTHPARAMS for HTTP GET call

Hello,

How do i generate authentication parameters to be used by an API call to amazon SQS?  The requirement is to accomplish this without using aws SDKs but instead use a message broker's (IIB) builtin functionalities.

I am the aws account admin - How do i generate all the parameters required for the API call? for example in the sample below

GET https://iam.amazonaws.com/?Action=ListUsers&Version=2010-05-08 HTTP/1.1
Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded; charset=utf-8
Host: iam.amazonaws.com
X-Amz-Date: 20150830T123600Z

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I started here, https://docs.aws.amazon.com/AWSSimpleQueueService/latest/APIReference/Welcome.html and found the link about making requests, https://docs.aws.amazon.com/AWSSimpleQueueService/latest/SQSDeveloperGuide/sqs-making-api-requests.html. That brought me to information on signing without using an sdk. https://docs.aws.amazon.com/general/latest/gr/signature-version-4.html   

You will see there are also links for more details and sample code.

The example shown is
https://sqs.eu-west-2.amazonaws.com/   
?Action=CreateQueue
&DefaultVisibilityTimeout=40
&QueueName=MyQueue
&Version=2012-11-05
&AUTHPARAMS

The tricky part will be creating teh AUTHPARAMS and that is what the links I provided will help you with.

I think you may get more detailed help if you provide some code you are using on  your own after reviewing the documentation and explain the errors you are getting and expected output as well as which server side language you are using.
