CreateVoiceConnector - 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.


Creates an Amazon Chime Voice Connector under the administrator's AWS account. You can choose to create an Amazon Chime Voice Connector in a specific AWS Region.

Enabling CreateVoiceConnector:RequireEncryption configures your Amazon Chime Voice Connector to use TLS transport for SIP signaling and Secure RTP (SRTP) for media. Inbound calls use TLS transport, and unencrypted outbound calls are blocked.


This API is no longer supported and will not be updated. We recommend using the latest version, CreateVoiceConnector, in the Amazon Chime SDK.

Using the latest version requires migrating to a dedicated namespace. For more information, refer to Migrating from the Amazon Chime namespace in the Amazon Chime SDK Developer Guide.

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 creates an Amazon Chime Voice Connector.
