Starting a Flow

After you create a flow, you must start the flow. You can also stop and restart a flow at any time.

To start 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 start.

    The details page for that flow appears.

  3. Choose Start.

To start a flow (AWS CLI)

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

    aws mediaconnect start-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": "STARTING" }
