Streaming your Application in One Click

Your users can connect to your streaming application in one click through a browser in devices that use Android, Fire OS, and iOS as well as the Chrome App. You can connect by using a URL in a deep link format. This topic shows you how to construct this URL.

To create a deep link to an entitlement service

  1. Start with the following deep link:

    http://start.appstream.amazonaws.com/v3?applicationId=applicationId&desServer=server&identityToken=username

  2. Replace the italicized text with the following parameters:

    • For applicationId, insert the application ID of your streaming application, which is available from the summary page in the Amazon AppStream console. For more information about getting the application ID, see Viewing Application Summary.

    • For server, insert the URL of your entitlement service.

    • For username, insert a user name that can connect to your streaming application.

    For example, if your streaming application uses the following:

    • Application ID – 5a3d0f51-5fa8-47d7-8d37-14c656ab90cd

    • Entitlement service – des.example.com

    • User name – marymajor

    Then you would use the following deep link in a browser to connect to your streaming application:

    http://start.appstream.amazonaws.com/v3?applicationId=5a3d0f51-5fa8-47d7-8d37-14c656ab90cd&desServer=des.example.com&identityToken=marymajor
