[ aws . ivs ]



Performs GetChannel on multiple ARNs simultaneously.

See ‘aws help’ for descriptions of global parameters.


--arns <value>
[--cli-input-json | --cli-input-yaml]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--arns (list)

Array of ARNs, one per channel.

--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.

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 channel configuration information about multiple channels

The following batch-get-channel example lists information about the specified channels.

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


    "channels": [
            "arn": "arn:aws:ivs:us-west-2:123456789012:channel/abcdABCDefgh",

            "latencyMode": "LOW",

channels -> (list)


Object specifying a channel.

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) .

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 : Multiple qualities are generated from the original input, to automatically give viewers the best experience for their devices and network conditions. 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.

  • BASIC : 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 480p and bitrate can be up to 1.5 Mbps.

errors -> (list)

Each error object is related to a specific ARN in the request.


Error related to a specific channel, specified by its ARN.

arn -> (string)

Channel ARN.

code -> (string)

Error code.

message -> (string)

Error message, determined by the application.
