get-channel

Description

Gets the channel configuration for the specified channel ARN. See also BatchGetChannel .

[--cli-read-timeout <value>]
[--cli-connect-timeout <value>]

Options

--arn (string)

ARN of the channel for which the configuration is to be retrieved.

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

Global Options

--debug (boolean)

Turn on debug logging.

--endpoint-url (string)

Override command's default URL with the given URL.

--no-verify-ssl (boolean)

By default, the AWS CLI uses SSL when communicating with AWS services. For each SSL connection, the AWS CLI will verify SSL certificates. This option overrides the default behavior of verifying SSL certificates.

--no-paginate (boolean)

Disable automatic pagination.

--output (string)

The formatting style for command output.

  • json
  • text
  • table

--query (string)

A JMESPath query to use in filtering the response data.

--profile (string)

Use a specific profile from your credential file.

--region (string)

The region to use. Overrides config/env settings.

--version (string)

Display the version of this tool.

--color (string)

Turn on/off color output.

  • on
  • off
  • auto

--no-sign-request (boolean)

Do not sign requests. Credentials will not be loaded if this argument is provided.

--ca-bundle (string)

The CA certificate bundle to use when verifying SSL certificates. Overrides config/env settings.

--cli-read-timeout (int)

The maximum socket read time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket read will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

--cli-connect-timeout (int)

The maximum socket connect time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket connect will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

Examples

Note

To use the following examples, you must have the AWS CLI installed and configured. See the Getting started guide in the AWS CLI User Guide for more information.

Unless otherwise stated, all examples have unix-like quotation rules. These examples will need to be adapted to your terminal's quoting rules. See Using quotation marks with strings in the AWS CLI User Guide .

To get a channel's configuration information

The following get-channel example gets the channel configuration for a specified channel ARN (Amazon Resource Name).

aws ivs get-channel \
    --arn arn:aws:ivs:us-west-2:123456789012:channel/abcdABCDefgh

Output:

{
    "channel": {
        "arn": "arn:aws:ivs:us-west-2:123456789012:channel/abcdABCDefgh",
        "name": "channel-1",
        "latencyMode": "LOW",
        "type": "STANDARD",
        "recordingConfigurationArn": "arn:aws:ivs:us-west-2:123456789012:recording-configuration/ABCD12cdEFgh",
        "ingestEndpoint": "a1b2c3d4e5f6.global-contribute.live-video.net",
        "playbackUrl": "https://a1b2c3d4e5f6.us-west-2.playback.live-video.net/api/video/v1/us-west-2.123456789012.channel.abcdEFGH.m3u8",
        "tags": {}
    }
}

Output

channel -> (structure)

arn -> (string)

Channel ARN.

authorized -> (boolean)

Whether the channel is private (enabled for playback authorization). Default: false .

ingestEndpoint -> (string)

Channel ingest endpoint, part of the definition of an ingest server, used when you set up streaming software.

latencyMode -> (string)

Channel latency mode. Use NORMAL to broadcast and deliver live video up to Full HD. Use LOW for near-real-time interaction with viewers. Default: LOW . (Note: In the Amazon IVS console, LOW and NORMAL correspond to Ultra-low and Standard, respectively.)

name -> (string)

Channel name.

playbackUrl -> (string)

Channel playback URL.

recordingConfigurationArn -> (string)

Recording-configuration ARN. A value other than an empty string indicates that recording is enabled. Default: "" (empty string, recording is disabled).

tags -> (map)

Array of 1-50 maps, each of the form string:string (key:value) . See Tagging Amazon Web Services Resources for more information, including restrictions that apply to tags and "Tag naming limits and requirements"; Amazon IVS has no service-specific constraints beyond what is documented there.

key -> (string)

value -> (string)

type -> (string)

Channel type, which determines the allowable resolution and bitrate. If you exceed the allowable resolution or bitrate, the stream probably will disconnect immediately. Default: STANDARD . Valid values:

  • STANDARD : Video is transcoded: multiple qualities are generated from the original input, to automatically give viewers the best experience for their devices and network conditions. Transcoding allows higher playback quality across a range of download speeds. Resolution can be up to 1080p and bitrate can be up to 8.5 Mbps. Audio is transcoded only for renditions 360p and below; above that, audio is passed through. This is the default.
  • BASIC : Video is transmuxed: Amazon IVS delivers the original input to viewers. The viewer’s video-quality choice is limited to the original input. Resolution can be up to 1080p and bitrate can be up to 1.5 Mbps for 480p and up to 3.5 Mbps for resolutions between 480p and 1080p.
