JobExecutionSettings - Amazon Transcribe


Makes it possible to control how your transcription job is processed. Currently, the only JobExecutionSettings modification you can choose is enabling job queueing using the AllowDeferredExecution sub-parameter.

If you include JobExecutionSettings in your request, you must also include the sub-parameters: AllowDeferredExecution and DataAccessRoleArn.



Makes it possible to enable job queuing when your concurrent request limit is exceeded. When AllowDeferredExecution is set to true, transcription job requests are placed in a queue until the number of jobs falls below the concurrent request limit. If AllowDeferredExecution is set to false and the number of transcription job requests exceed the concurrent request limit, you get a LimitExceededException error.

If you include AllowDeferredExecution in your request, you must also include DataAccessRoleArn.

Type: Boolean

Required: No


The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of an IAM role that has permissions to access the Amazon S3 bucket that contains your input files. If the role that you specify doesn’t have the appropriate permissions to access the specified Amazon S3 location, your request fails.

IAM role ARNs have the format arn:partition:iam::account:role/role-name-with-path. For example: arn:aws:iam::111122223333:role/Admin. For more information, see IAM ARNs.

Note that if you include DataAccessRoleArn in your request, you must also include AllowDeferredExecution.
