Assumptions - AWS Elemental Live

This is version 2.18 of the AWS Elemental Live documentation. This is the latest version. For prior versions, see the Previous Versions section of AWS Elemental Live and AWS Elemental Statmux Documentation.


  • This article assumes you know how to use the AWS Console, AWS Identity and Access Management, and AWS Elemental MediaConnect, and that you have access to the user guides for the AWS services: What Is AWS Elemental MediaConnect? in the AWS Elemental MediaConnect User Guide, What Is IAM? in the IAM User Guide, and What Is AWS Secrets Manager? in the AWS Secrets Manager User Guide.

  • This article assumes that you have already set up permissions for MediaConnect. So you have created at least one AWS user and given permissions to those users so that they can use the features of MediaConnect. Specifically, for the purposes of this procedure, the user can create a MediaConnect flow. You have also set up MediaConnect as a trusted entity with Secrets Manager; see Step 3: Create an IAM Role with a Trusted Relationship in the AWS Elemental MediaConnect User Guide.

  • This article does not assume that you have set up AWS Elemental Live with permissions in AWS. Setting up those permissions is one of the steps in this article.
