Edge Queues are designed in the same way, as Platform (Cloud) Queues. Please read Platform Queues documentation to get knowledge on Queues functionality in general.
Propagation Queues to Edge
Queues are created on the Platform. In the current version you can not create, modify or delete them on the Edge.
All the Queues, that are created on the Platform, are automatically propagated to every Edge instance, that is connected to the Platform. No additional assignment actions required from Tenant administrator or user.
Queues Usage in the Rule Engine
Tenant administrator is able to use any Queue in the Edge Rule Chain, in the same way as it used for Platform Rule Chain.
You can use Queues in Checkpoint or any analytics (PE) rule nodes. No additional configuration steps required.
