--arn (string)

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

--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.



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


    "channel": {
        "arn": "arn:aws:ivs:us-west-2:123456789012:channel/abcdABCDefgh",
        "name": "channel-1",
        "latencyMode": "LOW",
        "type": "STANDARD",
        "playbackRestrictionPolicyArn": "",
        "preset": "",
        "recordingConfigurationArn": "arn:aws:ivs:us-west-2:123456789012:recording-configuration/ABCD12cdEFgh",
        "srt": {
            "endpoint": "a1b2c3d4e5f6.srt.live-video.net",
            "passphrase": "AB1C2defGHijkLMNo3PqQRstUvwxyzaBCDEfghh4ijklMN5opqrStuVWxyzAbCDEfghIJ"
        "ingestEndpoint": "a1b2c3d4e5f6.global-contribute.live-video.net",
        "insecureIngest": false,
        "playbackUrl": "https://a1b2c3d4e5f6.us-west-2.playback.live-video.net/api/video/v1/us-west-2.123456789012.channel.abcdEFGH.m3u8",
        "tags": {}

For more information, see Create a Channel in the IVS Low-Latency User Guide.


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.

insecureIngest -> (boolean)

Whether the channel allows insecure RTMP ingest. Default: false .

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 .

name -> (string)

Channel name.

playbackRestrictionPolicyArn -> (string)

Playback-restriction-policy ARN. A valid ARN value here both specifies the ARN and enables playback restriction. Default: “” (empty string, no playback restriction policy is applied).

playbackUrl -> (string)

Channel playback URL.

preset -> (string)

Optional transcode preset for the channel. This is selectable only for ADVANCED_HD and ADVANCED_SD channel types. For those channel types, the default preset is HIGHER_BANDWIDTH_DELIVERY . For other channel types (BASIC and STANDARD ), preset is the empty string ("" ).

recordingConfigurationArn -> (string)

Recording-configuration ARN. A valid ARN value here both specifies the ARN and enables recording. Default: “” (empty string, recording is disabled).

srt -> (structure)

Specifies the endpoint and optional passphrase for streaming with the SRT protocol.

endpoint -> (string)

The endpoint to be used when streaming with IVS using the SRT protocol.

passphrase -> (string)

Auto-generated passphrase to enable encryption. This field is applicable only if the end user has not enabled the insecureIngest option for the channel.

tags -> (map)

Tags attached to the resource. 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 input resolution or bitrate, the stream probably will disconnect immediately. Default: STANDARD . For details, see Channel Types .
