To update the source of an existing flow (AWS CLI)

  • In the AWS CLI, use the update-flow-source command:

    aws mediaconnect update-flow-source --flow-arn "arn:aws:mediaconnect:us-east-1:111122223333:flow:1:1-23aBC45dEF67hiJ8-12AbC34DE5fG:AwardsShow" --source-arn "arn:aws:mediaconnect:us-east-1:111122223333:source:1:2-3aBC45dEF67hiJ89-c34de5fG678h:AwardsShowSource" --whitelist-cidr "10.24.34.0/24" --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:AwardsShow", "Source": { "IngestIp": "203.0.113.20", "Description": "NYC awards show", "Transport": { "Protocol": "rtp", "MaxBitrate": 80000000 }, "WhitelistCidr": "10.24.34.0/24", "SourceArn": "arn:aws:mediaconnect:us-east-1:111122223333:source:1:2-3aBC45dEF67hiJ89-c34de5fG678h:AwardsShowSource", "IngestPort": 5000, "Name": "AwardsShowSource" } }
