ValidateE911Address - 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.


Validates an address to be used for 911 calls made with Amazon Chime Voice Connectors. You can use validated addresses in a Presence Information Data Format Location Object file that you include in SIP requests. That helps ensure that addresses are routed to the appropriate Public Safety Answering Point.


This API is no longer supported and will not be updated. We recommend using the latest version, ValidateE911Address, 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.
