BatchSuspendUser - Amazon Chime

The Amazon Chime SDK Identity, Media Pipelines, Meetings, and Messaging APIs are now published on the new Amazon Chime SDK API Reference. For more information, see the Amazon Chime SDK API Reference.


Suspends up to 50 users from a Team or EnterpriseLWA Amazon Chime account. For more information about different account types, see Managing Your Amazon Chime Accounts in the Amazon Chime Administration Guide.

Users suspended from a Team account are disassociated from the account,but they can continue to use Amazon Chime as free users. To remove the suspension from suspended Team account users, invite them to the Team account again. You can use the InviteUsers action to do so.

Users suspended from an EnterpriseLWA account are immediately signed out of Amazon Chime and can no longer sign in. To remove the suspension from suspended EnterpriseLWA account users, use the BatchUnsuspendUser action.

To sign out users without suspending them, use the LogoutUser action.

In the following example or examples, the Authorization header contents( AUTHPARAMS ) must be replaced with an AWS Signature Version 4 signature. For more information about creating these signatures, see Signature Version 4 Signing Process in the AWS General Reference.

You only need to learn how to sign HTTP requests if you intend to manually create them. When you use the AWS Command Line Interface (AWS CLI) or one of the AWS SDKs to make requests to AWS, these tools automatically sign the requests for you with the access key that you specify when you configure the tools. When you use these tools, you don't need to learn how to sign requests yourself.


This example suspends the listed users from the specified Amazon Chime account.
