See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.


--source-location-name <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--source-location-name (string)

The identifier for the source location you are working on.

--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.


AccessConfiguration -> (structure)

The access configuration for the source location.

AccessType -> (string)

The type of authentication used to access content from HttpConfiguration::BaseUrl on your source location. Accepted value: S3_SIGV4.

Your MediaTailor source location baseURL must follow the S3 virtual hosted-style request URL format. For example,

Before you can use S3_SIGV4, you must meet these requirements:

  • You must allow MediaTailor to access your S3 bucket by granting principal access in IAM. For information about configuring access in IAM, see Access management in the IAM User Guide.
