Passthrough of Live Event POST Commands

HTTP Request and Response

Request URL

POST http://<Conductor IP address>/channels/<ID of channel>/live_events/<action>


  • ID of channel is the ID of a channel known to the AWS Elemental Conductor Live 3 API.

  • /live_events/<action> is the command from the AWS Elemental Live API. See the table below for a complete list of commands.

When the command is submitted, the Conductor API determines the Live event that corresponds to the Conductor channel and then submits the appropriately formed command to the Live API.
