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

Options

--arn (string)

ARN of the channel to be updated.

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

Whether the channel is private (enabled for playback authorization).

--latency-mode (string)

Channel latency mode. Use NORMAL to broadcast and deliver live video up to Full HD. Use LOW for near-real-time interaction with viewers. (Note: In the Amazon IVS console, LOW and NORMAL correspond to Ultra-low and Standard, respectively.)

Possible values:

  • NORMAL
  • LOW

--name (string)

Channel name.

--recording-configuration-arn (string)

Recording-configuration ARN. If this is set to an empty string, recording is disabled. A value other than an empty string indicates that recording is enabled

--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. Resolution can be up to 1080p and bitrate can be up to 8.5 Mbps. Audio is transcoded only for renditions 360p and below; above that, audio is passed through.
  • BASIC : Amazon IVS delivers the original input to viewers. The viewer’s video-quality choice is limited to the original input. Resolution can be up to 480p and bitrate can be up to 1.5 Mbps.

Possible values:

  • BASIC
  • STANDARD

--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

Example 1: To update a channel's configuration information

The following update-channel example updates the channel configuration for a specified channel ARN to change the channel 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",
        "type": "STANDARD",
        "recordingConfigurationArn": "",
        "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": {}
}

For more information, see Create a Channel in the Amazon Interactive Video Service User Guide.

Example 2: To update a channel's configuration to enable recording

The following update-channel example updates the channel configuration for a specified channel ARN to enable recording. 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" \
    --recording-configuration-arn "arn:aws:ivs:us-west-2:123456789012:recording-configuration/ABCD12cdEFgh"

Output:

{
    "channel": {
        "arn": "arn:aws:ivs:us-west-2:123456789012:channel/abcdABCDefgh",
        "name": "test-channel-with-recording",
        "latencyMode": "LOW",
        "type": "STANDARD",
        "recordingConfigurationArn": "arn:aws:ivs:us-west-2:123456789012:recording-configuration/ABCD12cdEFgh",
        "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",
        "authorized": false,
        "tags": {}
    }
}

Example 3: To update a channel's configuration to disable recording

The following update-channel example updates the channel configuration for a specified channel ARN to disable recording. 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" \
    --recording-configuration-arn ""

Output:

{
    "channel": {
        "arn": "arn:aws:ivs:us-west-2:123456789012:channel/abcdABCDefgh",
        "name": "test-channel-with-recording",
        "latencyMode": "LOW",
        "type": "STANDARD",
        "recordingConfigurationArn": "",
        "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",
        "authorized": false,
        "tags": {}
    }
}
