update-channel

Description

Updates a channel's configuration. This does not affect an ongoing stream of this channel. You must stop and restart the stream for the changes to take effect.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  update-channel
--arn <value>
[--name <value>]
[--latency-mode <value>]
[--type <value>]
[--authorized | --no-authorized]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--arn (string)

ARN of the channel to be updated.

--name (string)

Channel name.

--latency-mode (string)

Channel latency mode. Default: LOW .

Possible values:

  • NORMAL
  • LOW

--type (string)

Channel type, which determines the allowable resolution and bitrate. If you exceed the allowable resolution or bitrate, the stream probably will disconnect immediately. Valid values:

  • STANDARD : Multiple qualities are generated from the original input, to automatically give viewers the best experience for their devices and network conditions. Vertical resolution can be up to 1080 and bitrate can be up to 8.5 Mbps.
  • BASIC : Amazon IVS delivers the original input to viewers. The viewer’s video-quality choice is limited to the original input. Vertical resolution can be up to 480 and bitrate can be up to 1.5 Mbps.

Default: STANDARD .

Possible values:

  • BASIC
  • STANDARD

--authorized | --no-authorized (boolean)

Whether the channel is authorized. Default: false .

--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.

Examples

To update a channel's configuration information

The following update-channel example updates the channel configuration for a specified channel ARN (Amazon Resource Name). This does not affect an ongoing stream of this channel; you must stop and restart the stream for the changes to take effect.

aws ivs update-channel \
    --arn arn:aws:ivs:us-west-2:123456789012:channel/abcdABCDefgh \
    --name "channel-1"

Output:

{
    "channel": {
        "arn": "arn:aws:ivs:us-west-2:123456789012:channel/abcdABCDefgh",
        "name": "channel-1",
        "latencyMode": "LOW",
        "ingestEndpoint": "a1b2c3d4e5f6.global-contribute.live-video.net",
        "playbackUrl": "https://a1b2c3d4e5f6.us-west-2.playback.live-video.net/api/video/v1/us-west-2.123456789012.channel.abcdEFGH.m3u8",
        "tags": {}
}
