Creating actions in the schedule (console) - AWS Elemental MediaLive

Creating actions in the schedule (console)

You can create different actions in the schedule. For a list of supported actions, see Types of actions in the schedule.

The general procedure is the same to create any type of action.

To create an action

  1. Read the information about planning the actions you want to add.

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

  3. In the navigation pane, choose Channel, and then choose the channel that you want to work with.

  4. On the Details pane, choose the Schedule tab.

  5. Choose the Switch button to display the view that you want: List view or Timeline view. For information about the layout and color coding of the timeline view, see Viewing the schedule (console).

  6. For List view, choose the appropriate action:

    • To create a fixed, follow, or immediate action from scratch, choose Create.

    • To create a follow action after an existing action, choose that action, choose Schedule actions, and then choose Create follow actions from.

      This method displays the Create schedule action page with some fields already completed, so you can quickly create a follow switch for that existing action.

  7. For Timeline view, choose the appropriate action:

    • To create a fixed, follow, or immediate action from scratch, choose Create.

    • To create a follow action, find the input switch that you want to follow, and then choose Create follow action in that card.

      This method displays the Create schedule action page with some fields already completed, so you can quickly create a follow switch for that existing action.

  8. On the Create schedule action page, complete the fields. For information about completing the fields, see the following topics.

  9. When you have finished, choose Create.

    MediaLive adds the action to the list or the timeline at its appropriate time slot.

When you create a follow input switch, you effectively create an input follow chain. The input follow chain starts with the input above the first follow and ends with the last follow input. For more information about input follow chains, see Fixed, immediate, and follow switches.
