[ aws . mediatailor ]



Returns a list of the configurations defined in AWS Elemental MediaTailor. You can specify a max number of configurations to return at a time. The default max is 50. Results are returned in pagefuls. If AWS Elemental MediaTailor has more configurations than the specified max, it provides parameters in the response that you can use to retrieve the next pageful.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

list-playback-configurations is a paginated operation. Multiple API calls may be issued in order to retrieve the entire data set of results. You can disable pagination by providing the --no-paginate argument. When using --output text and the --query argument on a paginated response, the --query argument must extract data from the results of the following query expressions: Items


[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--starting-token <value>]
[--page-size <value>]
[--max-items <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--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.

--starting-token (string)

A token to specify where to start paginating. This is the NextToken from a previously truncated response.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--page-size (integer)

The size of each page to get in the AWS service call. This does not affect the number of items returned in the command's output. Setting a smaller page size results in more calls to the AWS service, retrieving fewer items in each call. This can help prevent the AWS service calls from timing out.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--max-items (integer)

The total number of items to return in the command's output. If the total number of items available is more than the value specified, a NextToken is provided in the command's output. To resume pagination, provide the NextToken value in the starting-token argument of a subsequent command. Do not use the NextToken response element directly outside of the AWS CLI.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--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.


Items -> (list)

Array of playback configurations. This may be all of the available configurations or a subset, depending on the settings you provide and on the total number of configurations stored.


The AWSMediaTailor configuration.

AdDecisionServerUrl -> (string)

The URL for the ad decision server (ADS). This includes the specification of static parameters and placeholders for dynamic parameters. AWS Elemental MediaTailor substitutes player-specific and session-specific parameters as needed when calling the ADS. Alternately, for testing, you can provide a static VAST URL. The maximum length is 25000 characters.

CdnConfiguration -> (structure)

The configuration for using a content delivery network (CDN), like Amazon CloudFront, for content and ad segment management.

AdSegmentUrlPrefix -> (string)

A non-default content delivery network (CDN) to serve ad segments. By default, AWS Elemental MediaTailor uses Amazon CloudFront with default cache settings as its CDN for ad segments. To set up an alternate CDN, create a rule in your CDN for the following origin: ads.mediatailor.region> Then specify the rule's name in this AdSegmentUrlPrefix. When AWS Elemental MediaTailor serves a manifest, it reports your CDN as the source for ad segments.

ContentSegmentUrlPrefix -> (string)

A content delivery network (CDN) to cache content segments, so that content requests don’t always have to go to the origin server. First, create a rule in your CDN for the content segment origin server. Then specify the rule's name in this ContentSegmentUrlPrefix. When AWS Elemental MediaTailor serves a manifest, it reports your CDN as the source for content segments.

Name -> (string)

The identifier for the configuration.

SlateAdUrl -> (string)

URL for a high-quality video asset to transcode and use to fill in time that's not used by ads. AWS Elemental MediaTailor shows the slate to fill in gaps in media content. Configuring the slate is optional for non-VPAID configurations. For VPAID, the slate is required because AWS Elemental MediaTailor provides it in the slots designated for dynamic ad content. The slate must be a high-quality asset that contains both audio and video.

VideoContentSourceUrl -> (string)

The URL prefix for the master playlist for the stream, minus the asset ID. The maximum length is 512 characters.

NextToken -> (string)

Pagination token returned by the GET list request when results overrun the meximum allowed. Use the token to fetch the next page of results.
