Deleting a Flow

When you delete an active flow, it immediately becomes unavailable to customers who are accessing the output directly from your AWS Elemental MediaConnect flow or through an entitlement. After you delete a flow, you can't recover it.

If the flow is active, you must stop the flow before you can delete it.

To delete a flow (console)

  1. Open the MediaConnect console at https://console.aws.amazon.com/mediaconnect/.

  2. On the Flows page, choose the name of the flow that you want to delete.

    The details page for that flow appears.

  3. Review the Status field to verify that the flow is in Standby mode.

  4. If the flow status is Active, choose Stop.

  5. Choose Delete.

    A confirmation message appears.

  6. Choose Delete flow.

    The flow is no longer viewable to customers who are accessing the output directly from your AWS Elemental MediaConnect flow or through an entitlement. It might take up to five minutes for the flow to be deleted entirely.

To delete a flow (AWS CLI)

  • In the AWS CLI, use the delete-flow command:

    aws mediaconnect delete-flow --flow-arn "arn:aws:mediaconnect:us-east-1:111122223333:flow:1:1-23aBC45dEF67hiJ8-12AbC34DE5fG:BasketballGame" --region us-east-1 --profile PMprofile

    The following example shows the return value:

    { "FlowArn": "arn:aws:mediaconnect:us-east-1:111122223333:flow:1:1-23aBC45dEF67hiJ8-12AbC34DE5fG:BasketballGame", "Status": "DELETING" }
