Transferring a device - AWS Elemental MediaLive

Transferring a device

The owner of a device can initiate an outgoing transfer to a different AWS account, to transfer ownership of the device to that account. The recipient of a transfer can accept or reject the incoming transfer.

Initiating a device transfer

You can transfer a device to a different AWS account.

  3. In Input devices, go to the card for the MediaLive device that you want to transfer and choose the link.

  4. On the details page for the device, choose Transfer device.

  5. On the Transfer input device dialog box, enter the AWS account to transfer to, and type an optional message.

  6. Choose Transfer.

  7. In the navigation pane, choose Devices, then choose Device transfers. The transfer request appears in the Outgoing transfers tab.

    The transfer is pending until the recipient accepts the device. While the transfer is pending, you can cancel the request, as described in the following section.

    If the recipient accepts the transfer, the device no longer appears in any of your device lists.

    If the recipient rejects the transfer, the device appears again on your Input devices page.

Accepting a device transfer
