See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.


--multiplex-id <value>
--multiplex-program-settings <value>
--program-name <value>
[--request-id <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--multiplex-id (string) ID of the multiplex where the program is to be created.

--multiplex-program-settings (structure) The settings for this multiplex program.

Shorthand Syntax:


JSON Syntax:

  "PreferredChannelPipeline": "CURRENTLY_ACTIVE"|"PIPELINE_0"|"PIPELINE_1",
  "ProgramNumber": integer,
  "ServiceDescriptor": {
    "ProviderName": "string",
    "ServiceName": "string"
  "VideoSettings": {
    "ConstantBitrate": integer,
    "StatmuxSettings": {
      "MaximumBitrate": integer,
      "MinimumBitrate": integer

--program-name (string) Name of multiplex program.

--request-id (string) Unique request ID. This prevents retries from creating multiple resources.

--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.
