[ aws . ivs ]



Gets the recording configuration for the specified ARN.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See ‘aws help’ for descriptions of global parameters.


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


--arn (string)

ARN of the recording configuration 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.

To get information about a RecordingConfiguration resource

The following get-recording-configuration example gets information about the RecordingConfiguration resource for the specified ARN.

aws ivs get-recording-configuration \
    --arn "arn:aws:ivs:us-west-2:123456789012:recording-configuration/ABcdef34ghIJ"


    "recordingConfiguration": {
        "arn": "arn:aws:ivs:us-west-2:123456789012:recording-configuration/ABcdef34ghIJ",
        "name": "test-recording-config",
        "destinationConfiguration": {
            "s3": {
                "bucketName": "demo-recording-bucket"
        "state": "ACTIVE",
        "tags": { "key1" : "value1" },
        "thumbnailConfiguration": {
            "recordingMode": "INTERVAL",
            "targetIntervalSeconds": 30

recordingConfiguration -> (structure)

arn -> (string)

Recording-configuration ARN.

destinationConfiguration -> (structure)

A complex type that contains information about where recorded video will be stored.

s3 -> (structure)

An S3 destination configuration where recorded videos will be stored.

bucketName -> (string)

Location (S3 bucket name) where recorded videos will be stored.

name -> (string)

Recording-configuration name. The value does not need to be unique.

state -> (string)

Indicates the current state of the recording configuration. When the state is ACTIVE , the configuration is ready for recording a channel stream.

tags -> (map)

Array of 1-50 maps, each of the form string:string (key:value) .

key -> (string)

value -> (string)

thumbnailConfiguration -> (structure)

A complex type that allows you to enable/disable the recording of thumbnails for a live session and modify the interval at which thumbnails are generated for the live session.

recordingMode -> (string)

Thumbnail recording mode. Default: INTERVAL .

targetIntervalSeconds -> (long)

The targeted thumbnail-generation interval in seconds. This is configurable (and required) only if recordingMode is INTERVAL . Default: 60.

Important: Setting a value for targetIntervalSeconds does not guarantee that thumbnails are generated at the specified interval. For thumbnails to be generated at the targetIntervalSeconds interval, the IDR/Keyframe value for the input video must be less than the targetIntervalSeconds value. See Amazon IVS Streaming Configuration for information on setting IDR/Keyframe to the recommended value in video-encoder settings.
