AWS Elemental MediaLive
User Guide

Step 1: Get Started

  1. Before creating a channel, make sure you have created the input Creating Input that you will attach to the channel.

  2. On the console, choose Channels in the navigation pane.

  3. In the content pane, choose Create Channel. The Create channel page appears.

  4. In the Channel and input details pane, complete the following fields in General info:

    • Channel Name.

    • IAM role: You need an IAM role for AWS Elemental MediaLive. To check if someone else has already created it (only one person needs to create it for all users in your AWS account), look at Create role from template. If it is grayed out, this task has been done. Choose Use existing role and then select that role from the list. If the field is not grayed out, you must create an IAM role or request that an administrator created it for you.

    • Remember ARN: Check if you plan to use this ARN for more than one channel.

  5. When ready, go to the next step.
