Deleting multiplexes, programs, and channels - AWS Elemental MediaLive

Deleting multiplexes, programs, and channels

You can delete a multiplex, the programs in a multiplex, and the channels in a multiplex. There are specific rules that are based on the state of the item that you want to work with, as described in this section.

Deleting a multiplex

To delete a multiplex, the multiplex must be idle, and all of its programs must be empty (they must not have associated channels.)

To delete a multiplex

  1. Open the MediaLive console at https://console.aws.amazon.com/medialive/.

  2. In the navigation pane, choose Multiplexes, and then choose the multiplex that you want to delete.

  3. On the Details pane, choose Multiplex actions, and then choose Stop.

  4. On the Programs pane, choose the first program with a running channel, choose Program actions, and then choose Stop channel.

  5. Repeat for all the channels that are running.

  6. Make a note of the names of the channels, and then display the Channels page. Choose the channels, choose Actions, and then choose Delete.

  7. Return to the Multiplex page.

  8. Choose Multiplex actions, and then choose Delete multiplex. MediaLive deletes the multiplex and all of its programs.

Deleting a program

You can delete a program that has no channel. You can delete a program when the multiplex is running or idle.

To delete a program

  1. Open the MediaLive console at https://console.aws.amazon.com/medialive/.

  2. In the navigation pane, choose Multiplexes, and then choose the multiplex that you want to work with.

  3. On the Programs pane, choose the program to delete.

  4. If the channel for that program is running, choose Program Actions, and then choose Stop channel.

  5. Wait for the channel to change to Idle.

  6. Make a note of the name of the channel, and then display the Channels page. Choose the channel, choose Actions, and then choose Delete.

  7. Return to the Multiplex page.

  8. Choose Program actions, and then choose Delete program.

Deleting a channel

You can delete a channel when the multiplex is running or idle. You don’t detach the channel from its program—there is no concept of detaching a channel from a program.

To delete a channel, display the Channel page, and delete the channel in the usual way. For more information, see Deleting a channel.
