Deleting actions from the schedule (console) - AWS Elemental MediaLive

Deleting actions from the schedule (console)

These rule apply when you add delete actions to the schedule:

  • In a single-input channel (a channel that doesn't involve input switching), you can delete actions as follows:

    • You can delete an action with a start time that is more than 15 seconds in the future. The channel won't perform the action.

    • You can delete an action that has already been performed. Deleting this action doesn't reverse the action, it only removes it from the schedule.

  • In a multiple-input channel, you can delete actions as follows:

Deleting versus reversing

It is important to understand that deleting a stale action from the schedule doesn't reverse its effect in the channel. For example, if you have paused the channel, and the channel has performed the action, you unpause the channel by entering a new action. You don't unpause it by deleting the action.

Note

If the channel has already received the action, you might be able to modify it to effectively delete it. For more information, see Modifying actions in the schedule (console).

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.
