Response Structure

  • (dict) – Successfully created the input.

    • Input (dict) – Placeholder documentation for Input

      • Arn (string) – The Unique ARN of the input (generated, immutable).

      • AttachedChannels (list) – A list of channel IDs that that input is attached to (currently an input can only be attached to one channel).

        • (string) – Placeholder documentation for __string

      • Destinations (list) – A list of the destinations of the input (PUSH-type).

        • (dict) – The settings for a PUSH type input.

          • Ip (string) – The system-generated static IP address of endpoint. It remains fixed for the lifetime of the input.

          • Port (string) – The port number for the input.

          • Url (string) – This represents the endpoint that the customer stream will be pushed to.

          • Vpc (dict) – The properties for a VPC type input destination.

            • AvailabilityZone (string) – The availability zone of the Input destination.

            • NetworkInterfaceId (string) – The network interface ID of the Input destination in the VPC.

      • Id (string) – The generated ID of the input (unique for user account, immutable).

      • InputClass (string) – STANDARD - MediaLive expects two sources to be connected to this input. If the channel is also STANDARD, both sources will be ingested. If the channel is SINGLE_PIPELINE, only the first source will be ingested; the second source will always be ignored, even if the first source fails. SINGLE_PIPELINE - You can connect only one source to this input. If the ChannelClass is also SINGLE_PIPELINE, this value is valid. If the ChannelClass is STANDARD, this value is not valid because the channel requires two sources in the input.

      • InputDevices (list) – Settings for the input devices.

        • (dict) – Settings for an input device.

          • Id (string) – The unique ID for the device.

      • InputPartnerIds (list) – A list of IDs for all Inputs which are partners of this one.

        • (string) – Placeholder documentation for __string

      • InputSourceType (string) – Certain pull input sources can be dynamic, meaning that they can have their URL’s dynamically changes during input switch actions. Presently, this functionality only works with MP4_FILE and TS_FILE inputs.
