[ aws . chime ]



Uses the join token and call metadata in a meeting request (From number, To number, and so forth) to initiate an outbound call to a public switched telephone network (PSTN) and join them into a Chime meeting. Also ensures that the From number belongs to the customer.

To play welcome audio or implement an interactive voice response (IVR), use the CreateSipMediaApplicationCall action with the corresponding SIP media application ID.

--meeting-id (string)

The Amazon Chime SDK meeting ID.

--from-phone-number (string)

Phone number used as the caller ID when the remote party receives a call.

--to-phone-number (string)

Phone number called when inviting someone to a meeting.

--join-token (string)

Token used by the Amazon Chime SDK attendee. Call the CreateAttendee action to get a join token.

--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.
