[ aws . chime-sdk-meetings ]



Updates AttendeeCapabilities except the capabilities listed in an ExcludedAttendeeIds table.


You use the capabilities with a set of values that control what the capabilities can do, such as SendReceive data. For more information about those values, see .

When using capabilities, be aware of these corner cases:

  • You can’t set content capabilities to SendReceive or Receive unless you also set video capabilities to SendReceive or Receive . If you don’t set the video capability to receive, the response will contain an HTTP 400 Bad Request status code. However, you can set your video capability to receive and you set your content capability to not receive.
  • When you change an audio capability from None or Receive to Send or SendReceive , and if the attendee left their microphone unmuted, audio will flow from the attendee to the other meeting participants.
  • When you change a video or content capability from None or Receive to Send or SendReceive , and if the attendee turned on their video or content streams, remote attendees can receive those streams, but only after media renegotiation between the client and the Amazon Chime back-end server.

--meeting-id (string)

The ID of the meeting associated with the update request.

--excluded-attendee-ids (list)

The AttendeeIDs that you want to exclude from one or more capabilities.


A structure that contains one or more attendee IDs.

AttendeeId -> (string)

A list of one or more attendee IDs.

Shorthand Syntax:

AttendeeId=string ...

JSON Syntax:

    "AttendeeId": "string"

--capabilities (structure)

The capabilities (audio , video , or content ) that you want to update.

Audio -> (string)

The audio capability assigned to an attendee.

Video -> (string)

The video capability assigned to an attendee.

Content -> (string)

The content capability assigned to an attendee.

Shorthand Syntax:


JSON Syntax:

  "Audio": "SendReceive"|"Send"|"Receive"|"None",
  "Video": "SendReceive"|"Send"|"Receive"|"None",
  "Content": "SendReceive"|"Send"|"Receive"|"None"

--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. The generated JSON skeleton is not stable between versions of the AWS CLI and there are no backwards compatibility guarantees in the JSON skeleton generated.

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
  • yaml
  • yaml-stream

--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.

--cli-binary-format (string)

The formatting style to be used for binary blobs. The default format is base64. The base64 format expects binary blobs to be provided as a base64 encoded string. The raw-in-base64-out format preserves compatibility with AWS CLI V1 behavior and binary values must be passed literally. When providing contents from a file that map to a binary blob fileb:// will always be treated as binary and use the file contents directly regardless of the cli-binary-format setting. When using file:// the file contents will need to properly formatted for the configured cli-binary-format.

  • base64
  • raw-in-base64-out

--no-cli-pager (boolean)

Disable cli pager for output.

--cli-auto-prompt (boolean)

Automatically prompt for CLI input parameters.

--no-cli-auto-prompt (boolean)

Disable automatically prompt for CLI input parameters.
