Chime / Client / validate_e911_address



Validates an address to be used for 911 calls made with Amazon Chime Voice Connectors. You can use validated addresses in a Presence Information Data Format Location Object file that you include in SIP requests. That helps ensure that addresses are routed to the appropriate Public Safety Answering Point.


This API is is no longer supported and will not be updated. We recommend using the latest version, ValidateE911Address, in the Amazon Chime SDK.

Using the latest version requires migrating to a dedicated namespace. For more information, refer to Migrating from the Amazon Chime namespace in the Amazon Chime SDK Developer Guide.


This operation is deprecated and may not function as expected. This operation should not be used going forward and is only kept for the purpose of backwards compatiblity.
