[ aws . chime-sdk-messaging ]



Gets message status for a specified messageId . Use this API to determine the intermediate status of messages going through channel flow processing. The API provides an alternative to retrieving message status if the event was not received because a client wasn't connected to a websocket.

Messages can have any one of these statuses.


Message processed successfully


Ongoing processing


Processing failed


Messasge denied by the processor


  • This API does not return statuses for denied messages, because we don't store them once the processor denies them.
  • Only the message sender can invoke this API.
  • The x-amz-chime-bearer request header is mandatory. Use the AppInstanceUserArn of the user that makes the API call as the value in the header

--channel-arn <value>
--message-id <value>
--chime-bearer <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--channel-arn (string)

The ARN of the channel

--message-id (string)

The ID of the message.

--chime-bearer (string)

The AppInstanceUserArn of the user making the API call.

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.
