See ‘aws help’ for descriptions of global parameters.


--input-id <value>
[--cli-input-json | --cli-input-yaml]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]
[--cli-auto-prompt <value>]


--input-id (string) Unique ID of the input

--cli-input-json | --cli-input-yaml (string) Reads arguments from the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, those 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. This may not be specified along with --cli-input-yaml.

--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. Similarly, if provided yaml-input it will print a sample input YAML that can be used with --cli-input-yaml. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

--cli-auto-prompt (boolean) Automatically prompt for CLI input parameters.

See ‘aws help’ for descriptions of global parameters.


Arn -> (string)

AttachedChannels -> (list)

A list of channel IDs that that input is attached to (currently an input can only be attached to one channel).

Destinations -> (list)

A list of the destinations of the input (PUSH-type).


The settings for a PUSH type input.

Ip -> (string)

The system-generated static IP address of endpoint. It remains fixed for the lifetime of the input.

Port -> (string)

The port number for the input.

Url -> (string)

This represents the endpoint that the customer stream will be pushed to.

Vpc -> (structure)

The properties for a VPC type input destination.

AvailabilityZone -> (string)

The availability zone of the Input destination.

NetworkInterfaceId -> (string)

Id -> (string)

The generated ID of the input (unique for user account, immutable).

InputClass -> (string)

STANDARD - MediaLive expects two sources to be connected to this input. If the channel is also STANDARD, both sources will be ingested. If the channel is SINGLE_PIPELINE, only the first source will be ingested; the second source will always be ignored, even if the first source fails. SINGLE_PIPELINE - You can connect only one source to this input. If the ChannelClass is also SINGLE_PIPELINE, this value is valid. If the ChannelClass is STANDARD, this value is not valid because the channel requires two sources in the input.

InputDevices -> (list)

Settings for the input devices.


Settings for an input device.

Id -> (string)

The unique ID for the device.

InputSourceType -> (string)

Certain pull input sources can be dynamic, meaning that they can have their URL’s dynamically changes during input switch actions. Presently, this functionality only works with MP4_FILE inputs.
