User Guide

Deleting Actions from the Schedule (Console)

You can delete actions that you previously created in the schedule. You can delete an action when the channel is running or when it is idle.

The action that you delete must have a UTC start time or a follow start time (for input switches) that is at least 15 seconds in the future. (In other words, it must not be already received in the channel.) After that cutoff, AWS Elemental MediaLive rejects the delete request.

You can delete any number of actions in one request, or any combination of types of actions in one request. For example, you can mix the deletion of SCTE-35 message actions and image overlay actions.

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

To delete actions in List view

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

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

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

  4. If necessary, choose the Switch button to display the List view. For information about the layout and color coding of the timeline view, see Viewing the Schedule (Console).

  5. Choose one or more actions to delete. Make sure that you choose actions with a UTC start time in the future.

    If you choose an input switch that is in a follow chain, a prompt appears to notify you that the follow actions below this action (up to the next fixed input switch) will also be deleted. You can cancel or continue.

    Choose Actions, and then choose Delete.
