Stopping a Flow

When you stop 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. If you want to delete an active flow, you must stop the flow first before you can delete it.

To stop 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 stop.

    The details page for that flow appears.

  3. Choose Stop.

    The status of the flow changes to Standby. The flow stops immediately and is no longer viewable to customers who are accessing the output directly from your AWS Elemental MediaConnect flow or through an entitlement.

To stop a flow (AWS CLI)

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

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

    The following example shows the return value:

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