Creating and Modifying MSMQ’s Using Powershell

There are a few Powershell functions that I have written and use to create and delete queues in MSMQ and to modify permissions on these queues.  At the end of the script there are a few examples on how to use the functions.
Clear-Host
[Reflection.Assembly]::LoadWithPartialName("System.Messaging")
  
function Create-Queue
{
    param
    (
        [Parameter(Mandatory=$true)]
        [string]$queueName,
        [switch]$isPrivate = $true,     
        [switch]$isTransactional = $false
    )
      
    $innerQueueName = $queueName
      
    if ($isPrivate)
    {
        $innerQueueName = ".\private$\"+$queueName
    }
    else
    {
        $innerQueueName = ".\"+$queueName
    }
      
    if (![System.Messaging.MessageQueue]::Exists($innerQueueName))
    {
        [System.Messaging.MessageQueue]::Create($innerQueueName, $isTransactional) 
        Write-Host "Created queue " $innerQueueName
    }
    return $innerQueueName
}
  
function Add-QueueUserPermission
{
    param
    (
        [Parameter(Mandatory=$true)]
        [string]$queuePath,
        [Parameter(Mandatory=$true)]
        [string]$user,
        [string]$fullControl = $false
    )
      
    $q = new-object System.Messaging.MessageQueue($queuePath)
      
        if ($fullControl -eq $true)
        {
            Write-Host "FullControl granted to "  $user
            $q.SetPermissions($User, [System.Messaging.MessageQueueAccessRights]::FullControl, [System.Messaging.AccessControlEntryType]::Allow) 
        }
        else
        {
            Write-Host "Restricted access granted to "  $user      
            $q.SetPermissions($User, [System.Messaging.MessageQueueAccessRights]::DeleteMessage, [System.Messaging.AccessControlEntryType]::Set) 
            $q.SetPermissions($User, [System.Messaging.MessageQueueAccessRights]::GenericWrite, [System.Messaging.AccessControlEntryType]::Allow) 
            $q.SetPermissions($User, [System.Messaging.MessageQueueAccessRights]::PeekMessage, [System.Messaging.AccessControlEntryType]::Allow) 
            $q.SetPermissions($User, [System.Messaging.MessageQueueAccessRights]::ReceiveJournalMessage, [System.Messaging.AccessControlEntryType]::Allow)
        }
      
      
}
  
function Delete-Queue
{
    param
    (
        [Parameter(Mandatory=$true)]
        [string]$queuePath
    )
      
    [System.Messaging.MessageQueue]::Delete($queuePath)
}
  
function Delete-Queues
{
    [System.Messaging.MessageQueue]::GetPrivateQueuesByMachine($Env:COMPUTERNAME) | ForEach-Object { Delete-Queue($_.Path) }
    [System.Messaging.MessageQueue]::GetPublicQueuesByMachine($Env:COMPUTERNAME) | ForEach-Object { Delete-Queue($_.Path) }
}

#examples
# creates a queue that is private but not transactional
#Create-Queue -queueName "My Queue" -isPrivate $true -isTransactional $false
  
# grants restricted access to the queue
#Add-QueueUserPermission -queuePath ".\private$\My Queue" -user 'domain\account'
  
# grants full control to the queue
#Add-QueueUserPermission -queuePath ".\private$\My Queue" -user 'domain\account' -fullControl
