MediaTailor

Client

class MediaTailor.Client

A low-level client representing AWS MediaTailor

Use the AWS Elemental MediaTailor SDKs and CLI to configure scalable ad insertion and linear channels. With MediaTailor, you can assemble existing content into a linear stream and serve targeted ads to viewers while maintaining broadcast quality in over-the-top (OTT) video applications. For information about using the service, including detailed information about the settings covered in this guide, see the AWS Elemental MediaTailor User Guide .

Through the SDKs and the CLI you manage AWS Elemental MediaTailor configurations and channels the same as you do through the console. For example, you specify ad insertion behavior and mapping information for the origin server and the ad decision server (ADS).

client = session.create_client('mediatailor')

These are the available methods:

can_paginate(operation_name)

Check if an operation can be paginated.

Parameters
operation_name (string) -- The operation name. This is the same name as the method name on the client. For example, if the method name is create_foo, and you'd normally invoke the operation as client.create_foo(**kwargs), if the create_foo operation can be paginated, you can use the call client.get_paginator("create_foo").
Returns
True if the operation can be paginated, False otherwise.
configure_logs_for_playback_configuration(**kwargs)

Configures Amazon CloudWatch log settings for a playback configuration.

Request Syntax

response = client.configure_logs_for_playback_configuration(
    PercentEnabled=123,
    PlaybackConfigurationName='string'
)
Parameters
  • PercentEnabled (integer) --

    [REQUIRED]

    The percentage of session logs that MediaTailor sends to your Cloudwatch Logs account. For example, if your playback configuration has 1000 sessions and percentEnabled is set to 60, MediaTailor sends logs for 600 of the sessions to CloudWatch Logs. MediaTailor decides at random which of the playback configuration sessions to send logs for. If you want to view logs for a specific session, you can use the debug log mode .

    Valid values: 0 - 100

  • PlaybackConfigurationName (string) --

    [REQUIRED]

    The name of the playback configuration.

Return type

        'StartTime': datetime(2015, 1, 1)
    },
    StreamId='string'
)
Parameters
  • Consumption (dict) --

    [REQUIRED]

    The configuration settings for MediaTailor's consumption of the prefetched ads from the ad decision server. Each consumption configuration contains an end time and an optional start time that define the consumption window . Prefetch schedules automatically expire no earlier than seven days after the end time.

    • AvailMatchingCriteria (list) --

      If you only want MediaTailor to insert prefetched ads into avails (ad breaks) that match specific dynamic variables, such as scte.event_id, set the avail matching criteria.

      • (dict) --

        MediaTailor only places (consumes) prefetched ads if the ad break meets the criteria defined by the dynamic variables. This gives you granular control over which ad break to place the prefetched ads into.

        As an example, let's say that you set DynamicVariable to scte.event_id and Operator to EQUALS, and your playback configuration has an ADS URL of https://my.ads.server.com/path?&podId=[scte.avail_num]&event=[scte.event_id]&duration=[session.avail_duration_secs]. And the prefetch request to the ADS contains these values https://my.ads.server.com/path?&podId=3&event=my-awesome-event&duration=30. MediaTailor will only insert the prefetched ads into the ad break if has a SCTE marker with an event id of my-awesome-event, since it must match the event id that MediaTailor uses to query the ADS.

        You can specify up to five AvailMatchingCriteria. If you specify multiple AvailMatchingCriteria, MediaTailor combines them to match using a logical AND. You can model logical OR combinations by creating multiple prefetch schedules.

        • DynamicVariable (string) -- [REQUIRED]

          The dynamic variable(s) that MediaTailor should use as avail matching criteria. MediaTailor only places the prefetched ads into the avail if the avail matches the criteria defined by the dynamic variable. For information about dynamic variables, see Using dynamic ad variables in the MediaTailor User Guide .

          You can include up to 100 dynamic variables.

        • Operator (string) -- [REQUIRED]

          For the DynamicVariable specified in AvailMatchingCriteria, the Operator that is used for the comparison.

    • EndTime (datetime) -- [REQUIRED]

      The time when MediaTailor no longer considers the prefetched ads for use in an ad break. MediaTailor automatically deletes prefetch schedules no less than seven days after the end time. If you'd like to manually delete the prefetch schedule, you can call DeletePrefetchSchedule.

    • StartTime (datetime) --

      The time when prefetched ads are considered for use in an ad break. If you don't specify StartTime, the prefetched ads are available after MediaTailor retrives them from the ad decision server.

  • Name (string) --

    [REQUIRED]

    The identifier for the playback configuration.

  • PlaybackConfigurationName (string) --

    [REQUIRED]

    The name of the playback configuration.

  • Retrieval (dict) --

    [REQUIRED]

    The configuration settings for retrieval of prefetched ads from the ad decision server. Only one set of prefetched ads will be retrieved and subsequently consumed for each ad break.

    • DynamicVariables (dict) --

      The dynamic variables to use for substitution during prefetch requests to the ad decision server (ADS).

      You intially configure dynamic variables for the ADS URL when you set up your playback configuration. When you specify DynamicVariables for prefetch retrieval, MediaTailor includes the dynamic variables in the request to the ADS.

      • (string) --
        • (string) --
    • EndTime (datetime) -- [REQUIRED]

      The time when prefetch retrieval ends for the ad break. Prefetching will be attempted for manifest requests that occur at or before this time.

    • StartTime (datetime) --

      The time when prefetch retrievals can start for this break. Ad prefetching will be attempted for manifest requests that occur at or after this time. Defaults to the current time. If not specified, the prefetch retrieval starts as soon as possible.

  • StreamId (string) -- An optional stream identifier that MediaTailor uses to prefetch ads for multiple streams that use the same playback configuration. If StreamId is specified, MediaTailor returns all of the prefetch schedules with an exact match on StreamId. If not specified, MediaTailor returns all of the prefetch schedules for the playback configuration, regardless of StreamId.

        S3_SIGV4 - AWS Signature Version 4 authentication for Amazon S3 hosted virtual-style access. If your source location base URL is an Amazon S3 bucket, MediaTailor can use AWS Signature Version 4 (SigV4) authentication to access the bucket where your source content is stored. Your MediaTailor source location baseURL must follow the S3 virtual hosted-style request URL format. For example, https://bucket-name.s3.Region.amazonaws.com/key-name.

        Before you can use S3_SIGV4, you must meet these requirements:

        • You must allow MediaTailor to access your S3 bucket by granting mediatailor.amazonaws.com principal access in IAM. For information about configuring access in IAM, see Access management in the IAM User Guide.
        • The mediatailor.amazonaws.com service principal must have permissions to read all top level manifests referenced by the VodSource packaging configurations.

Response Structure

  • (dict) --

    Success.

    • AdDecisionServerUrl (string) --

      The URL for the ad decision server (ADS). This includes the specification of static parameters and placeholders for dynamic parameters. AWS Elemental MediaTailor substitutes player-specific and session-specific parameters as needed when calling the ADS. Alternately, for testing, you can provide a static VAST URL. The maximum length is 25,000 characters.

    • AvailSuppression (dict) --

      The configuration for avail suppression, also known as ad suppression. For more information about ad suppression, see Ad Suppression .

      • Mode (string) --

        Sets the ad suppression mode. By default, ad suppression is off and all ad breaks are filled with ads or slate. When Mode is set to BEHIND_LIVE_EDGE, ad suppression is active and MediaTailor won't fill ad breaks on or behind the ad suppression Value time in the manifest lookback window.

      • Value (string) --

        A live edge offset time in HH:MM:SS. MediaTailor won't fill ad breaks on or behind this time in the manifest lookback window. If Value is set to 00:00:00, it is in sync with the live edge, and MediaTailor won't fill any ad breaks on or behind the live edge. If you set a Value time, MediaTailor won't fill any ad breaks on or behind this time in the manifest lookback window. For example, if you set 00:45:00, then MediaTailor will fill ad breaks that occur within 45 minutes behind the live edge, but won't fill ad breaks on or behind 45 minutes behind the live edge.

    • Bumper (dict) --

      The configuration for bumpers. Bumpers are short audio or video clips that play at the start or before the end of an ad break. To learn more about bumpers, see Bumpers .

      • StartUrl (string) --

        The URL for the start bumper asset.

    • CdnConfiguration (dict) --

      The configuration for using a content delivery network (CDN), like Amazon CloudFront, for content and ad segment management.

      • AdSegmentUrlPrefix (string) --

        A non-default content delivery network (CDN) to serve ad segments. By default, AWS Elemental MediaTailor uses Amazon CloudFront with default cache settings as its CDN for ad segments. To set up an alternate CDN, create a rule in your CDN for the origin ads.mediatailor.<region>.amazonaws.com. Then specify the rule's name in this AdSegmentUrlPrefix. When AWS Elemental MediaTailor serves a manifest, it reports your CDN as the source for ad segments.

      • ContentSegmentUrlPrefix (string) --

        A content delivery network (CDN) to cache content segments, so that content requests don’t always have to go to the origin server. First, create a rule in your CDN for the content segment origin server. Then specify the rule's name in this ContentSegmentUrlPrefix. When AWS Elemental MediaTailor serves a manifest, it reports your CDN as the source for content segments.

    • ConfigurationAliases (dict) --

      The player parameters and aliases used as dynamic variables during session initialization. For more information, see Domain Variables .

      • (string) --

        The dynamic variable that has aliases.

        • (dict) --

          Map of aliases to the value to be used at request time.

          • (string) --
            • (string) --
    • DashConfiguration (dict) --

      The configuration for DASH content.

      • ManifestEndpointPrefix (string) --

        The URL generated by MediaTailor to initiate a playback session. The session uses server-side reporting. This setting is ignored in PUT operations.

      • MpdLocation (string) --

        The setting that controls whether MediaTailor includes the Location tag in DASH manifests. MediaTailor populates the Location tag with the URL for manifest update requests, to be used by players that don't support sticky redirects. Disable this if you have CDN routing rules set up for accessing MediaTailor manifests, and you are either using client-side reporting or your players support sticky HTTP redirects. Valid values are DISABLED and EMT_DEFAULT. The EMT_DEFAULT setting enables the inclusion of the tag and is the default value.

      • OriginManifestType (string) --

        The setting that controls whether MediaTailor handles manifests from the origin server as multi-period manifests or single-period manifests. If your origin server produces single-period manifests, set this to SINGLE_PERIOD. The default setting is MULTI_PERIOD. For multi-period manifests, omit this setting or set it to MULTI_PERIOD.

    • HlsConfiguration (dict) --

      The configuration for HLS content.

      • ManifestEndpointPrefix (string) --

        The URL that is used to initiate a playback session for devices that support Apple HLS. The session uses server-side reporting.

    • LivePreRollConfiguration (dict) --

      The configuration for pre-roll ad insertion.

      • AdDecisionServerUrl (string) --

        The URL for the ad decision server (ADS) for pre-roll ads. This includes the specification of static parameters and placeholders for dynamic parameters. AWS Elemental MediaTailor substitutes player-specific and session-specific parameters as needed when calling the ADS. Alternately, for testing, you can provide a static VAST URL. The maximum length is 25,000 characters.

      • MaxDurationSeconds (integer) -- The maximum allowed duration for the pre-roll ad avail. AWS Elemental MediaTailor won't play pre-roll ads to exceed this duration, regardless of the total duration of ads that the ADS returns.
    • LogConfiguration (dict) --

      The Amazon CloudWatch log settings for a playback configuration.

      • PercentEnabled (integer) --

        The percentage of session logs that MediaTailor sends to your Cloudwatch Logs account. For example, if your playback configuration has 1000 sessions and percentEnabled is set to 60, MediaTailor sends logs for 600 of the sessions to CloudWatch Logs. MediaTailor decides at random which of the playback configuration sessions to send logs for. If you want to view logs for a specific session, you can use the debug log mode .

        Valid values: 0 - 100

    • ManifestProcessingRules (dict) --

      The configuration for manifest processing rules. Manifest processing rules enable customization of the personalized manifests created by MediaTailor.

      • AdMarkerPassthrough (dict) --

        For HLS, when set to true, MediaTailor passes through EXT-X-CUE-IN, EXT-X-CUE-OUT, and EXT-X-SPLICEPOINT-SCTE35 ad markers from the origin manifest to the MediaTailor personalized manifest.

        No logic is applied to these ad markers. For example, if EXT-X-CUE-OUT has a value of 60, but no ads are filled for that ad break, MediaTailor will not set the value to 0.

        • Enabled (boolean) --

          Enables ad marker passthrough for your configuration.

    • Name (string) --

      The identifier for the playback configuration.

    • PersonalizationThresholdSeconds (integer) --

      Defines the maximum duration of underfilled ad time (in seconds) allowed in an ad break. If the duration of underfilled ad time exceeds the personalization threshold, then the personalization of the ad break is abandoned and the underlying content is shown. This feature applies to ad replacement in live and VOD streams, rather than ad insertion, because it relies on an underlying content stream. For more information about ad break behavior, including ad replacement and insertion, see Ad Behavior in AWS Elemental MediaTailor .

    • PlaybackConfigurationArn (string) --

      The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) for the playback configuration.

    • PlaybackEndpointPrefix (string) --

      The URL that the player accesses to get a manifest from AWS Elemental MediaTailor. This session will use server-side reporting.

    • SessionInitializationEndpointPrefix (string) --

      The URL that the player uses to initialize a session that uses client-side reporting.

    • SlateAdUrl (string) --

      The URL for a high-quality video asset to transcode and use to fill in time that's not used by ads. AWS Elemental MediaTailor shows the slate to fill in gaps in media content. Configuring the slate is optional for non-VPAID playback configurations. For VPAID, the slate is required because MediaTailor provides it in the slots designated for dynamic ad content. The slate must be a high-quality asset that contains both audio and video.

    • Tags (dict) --

      The tags assigned to the playback configuration.

      • (string) --
        • (string) --
    • TranscodeProfileName (string) --

      The name that is used to associate this playback configuration with a custom transcode profile. This overrides the dynamic transcoding defaults of MediaTailor. Use this only if you have already set up custom profiles with the help of AWS Support.

    • VideoContentSourceUrl (string) --

      The URL prefix for the parent manifest for the stream, minus the asset ID. The maximum length is 512 characters.

get_prefetch_schedule(**kwargs)

Returns information about the prefetch schedule for a specific playback configuration. If you call GetPrefetchSchedule on an expired prefetch schedule, MediaTailor returns an HTTP 404 status code.

Response Structure

  • (dict) --

    Success.

    • Arn (string) --

      The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the prefetch schedule.

    • Consumption (dict) --

      Consumption settings determine how, and when, MediaTailor places the prefetched ads into ad breaks. Ad consumption occurs within a span of time that you define, called a consumption window . You can designate which ad breaks that MediaTailor fills with prefetch ads by setting avail matching criteria.

      • AvailMatchingCriteria (list) --

        If you only want MediaTailor to insert prefetched ads into avails (ad breaks) that match specific dynamic variables, such as scte.event_id, set the avail matching criteria.

        • (dict) --

          MediaTailor only places (consumes) prefetched ads if the ad break meets the criteria defined by the dynamic variables. This gives you granular control over which ad break to place the prefetched ads into.

          As an example, let's say that you set DynamicVariable to scte.event_id and Operator to EQUALS, and your playback configuration has an ADS URL of https://my.ads.server.com/path?&podId=[scte.avail_num]&event=[scte.event_id]&duration=[session.avail_duration_secs]. And the prefetch request to the ADS contains these values https://my.ads.server.com/path?&podId=3&event=my-awesome-event&duration=30. MediaTailor will only insert the prefetched ads into the ad break if has a SCTE marker with an event id of my-awesome-event, since it must match the event id that MediaTailor uses to query the ADS.

          You can specify up to five AvailMatchingCriteria. If you specify multiple AvailMatchingCriteria, MediaTailor combines them to match using a logical AND. You can model logical OR combinations by creating multiple prefetch schedules.

          • DynamicVariable (string) --

            The dynamic variable(s) that MediaTailor should use as avail matching criteria. MediaTailor only places the prefetched ads into the avail if the avail matches the criteria defined by the dynamic variable. For information about dynamic variables, see Using dynamic ad variables in the MediaTailor User Guide .

            You can include up to 100 dynamic variables.

          • Operator (string) --

            For the DynamicVariable specified in AvailMatchingCriteria, the Operator that is used for the comparison.

      • EndTime (datetime) --

        The time when MediaTailor no longer considers the prefetched ads for use in an ad break. MediaTailor automatically deletes prefetch schedules no less than seven days after the end time. If you'd like to manually delete the prefetch schedule, you can call DeletePrefetchSchedule.

      • StartTime (datetime) --

        The time when prefetched ads are considered for use in an ad break. If you don't specify StartTime, the prefetched ads are available after MediaTailor retrives them from the ad decision server.

    • Name (string) --

      The name of the prefetch schedule. The name must be unique among all prefetch schedules that are associated with the specified playback configuration.

    • PlaybackConfigurationName (string) --

      The name of the playback configuration to create the prefetch schedule for.

    • Retrieval (dict) --

      A complex type that contains settings for prefetch retrieval from the ad decision server (ADS).

      • DynamicVariables (dict) --

        The dynamic variables to use for substitution during prefetch requests to the ad decision server (ADS).

        You intially configure dynamic variables for the ADS URL when you set up your playback configuration. When you specify DynamicVariables for prefetch retrieval, MediaTailor includes the dynamic variables in the request to the ADS.

        • (string) --
          • (string) --
      • EndTime (datetime) --

        The time when prefetch retrieval ends for the ad break. Prefetching will be attempted for manifest requests that occur at or before this time.

      • StartTime (datetime) --

        The time when prefetch retrievals can start for this break. Ad prefetching will be attempted for manifest requests that occur at or after this time. Defaults to the current time. If not specified, the prefetch retrieval starts as soon as possible.

    • StreamId (string) --

      An optional stream identifier that you can specify in order to prefetch for multiple streams that use the same playback configuration.

Response Structure

  • (dict) --

    Success.

    • Items (list) --

      Array of playback configurations. This might be all the available configurations or a subset, depending on the settings that you provide and the total number of configurations stored.

      • (dict) --

        Creates a playback configuration. For information about MediaTailor configurations, see Working with configurations in AWS Elemental MediaTailor .

        • AdDecisionServerUrl (string) --

          The URL for the ad decision server (ADS). This includes the specification of static parameters and placeholders for dynamic parameters. AWS Elemental MediaTailor substitutes player-specific and session-specific parameters as needed when calling the ADS. Alternately, for testing you can provide a static VAST URL. The maximum length is 25,000 characters.

        • AvailSuppression (dict) --

          The configuration for avail suppression, also known as ad suppression. For more information about ad suppression, see Ad Suppression .

          • Mode (string) --

            Sets the ad suppression mode. By default, ad suppression is off and all ad breaks are filled with ads or slate. When Mode is set to BEHIND_LIVE_EDGE, ad suppression is active and MediaTailor won't fill ad breaks on or behind the ad suppression Value time in the manifest lookback window.

          • Value (string) --

            A live edge offset time in HH:MM:SS. MediaTailor won't fill ad breaks on or behind this time in the manifest lookback window. If Value is set to 00:00:00, it is in sync with the live edge, and MediaTailor won't fill any ad breaks on or behind the live edge. If you set a Value time, MediaTailor won't fill any ad breaks on or behind this time in the manifest lookback window. For example, if you set 00:45:00, then MediaTailor will fill ad breaks that occur within 45 minutes behind the live edge, but won't fill ad breaks on or behind 45 minutes behind the live edge.

        • Bumper (dict) --

          The configuration for bumpers. Bumpers are short audio or video clips that play at the start or before the end of an ad break. To learn more about bumpers, see Bumpers .

          • EndUrl (string) --

            The URL for the end bumper asset.

          • StartUrl (string) --

            The URL for the start bumper asset.

        • CdnConfiguration (dict) --

          The configuration for using a content delivery network (CDN), like Amazon CloudFront, for content and ad segment management.

          • AdSegmentUrlPrefix (string) --

            A non-default content delivery network (CDN) to serve ad segments. By default, AWS Elemental MediaTailor uses Amazon CloudFront with default cache settings as its CDN for ad segments. To set up an alternate CDN, create a rule in your CDN for the origin ads.mediatailor.<region>.amazonaws.com. Then specify the rule's name in this AdSegmentUrlPrefix. When AWS Elemental MediaTailor serves a manifest, it reports your CDN as the source for ad segments.

          • ContentSegmentUrlPrefix (string) --

            A content delivery network (CDN) to cache content segments, so that content requests don’t always have to go to the origin server. First, create a rule in your CDN for the content segment origin server. Then specify the rule's name in this ContentSegmentUrlPrefix. When AWS Elemental MediaTailor serves a manifest, it reports your CDN as the source for content segments.

        • ConfigurationAliases (dict) --

          The player parameters and aliases used as dynamic variables during session initialization. For more information, see Domain Variables .

          • (string) --

            The dynamic variable that has aliases.

            • (dict) --

              Map of aliases to the value to be used at request time.

          The configuration for a DASH source.

          • ManifestEndpointPrefix (string) --

            The URL generated by MediaTailor to initiate a playback session. The session uses server-side reporting. This setting is ignored in PUT operations.

          • MpdLocation (string) --

            The setting that controls whether MediaTailor includes the Location tag in DASH manifests. MediaTailor populates the Location tag with the URL for manifest update requests, to be used by players that don't support sticky redirects. Disable this if you have CDN routing rules set up for accessing MediaTailor manifests, and you are either using client-side reporting or your players support sticky HTTP redirects. Valid values are DISABLED and EMT_DEFAULT. The EMT_DEFAULT setting enables the inclusion of the tag and is the default value.

          • OriginManifestType (string) --

            The setting that controls whether MediaTailor handles manifests from the origin server as multi-period manifests or single-period manifests. If your origin server produces single-period manifests, set this to SINGLE_PERIOD. The default setting is MULTI_PERIOD. For multi-period manifests, omit this setting or set it to MULTI_PERIOD.

        • HlsConfiguration (dict) --

          The configuration for HLS content.

          • ManifestEndpointPrefix (string) --

          • AdDecisionServerUrl (string) --

            The URL for the ad decision server (ADS) for pre-roll ads. This includes the specification of static parameters and placeholders for dynamic parameters. AWS Elemental MediaTailor substitutes player-specific and session-specific parameters as needed when calling the ADS. Alternately, for testing, you can provide a static VAST URL. The maximum length is 25,000 characters.

          • MaxDurationSeconds (integer) -- The maximum allowed duration for the pre-roll ad avail. AWS Elemental MediaTailor won't play pre-roll ads to exceed this duration, regardless of the total duration of ads that the ADS returns.

        • LogConfiguration (dict) --

          The Amazon CloudWatch log settings for a playback configuration.

          • PercentEnabled (integer) --

            The percentage of session logs that MediaTailor sends to your Cloudwatch Logs account. For example, if your playback configuration has 1000 sessions and percentEnabled is set to 60, MediaTailor sends logs for 600 of the sessions to CloudWatch Logs. MediaTailor decides at random which of the playback configuration sessions to send logs for. If you want to view logs for a specific session, you can use the debug log mode .

            Valid values: 0 - 100

        • ManifestProcessingRules (dict) --

          The configuration for manifest processing rules. Manifest processing rules enable customization of the personalized manifests created by MediaTailor.

          • AdMarkerPassthrough (dict) --

            For HLS, when set to true, MediaTailor passes through EXT-X-CUE-IN, EXT-X-CUE-OUT, and EXT-X-SPLICEPOINT-SCTE35 ad markers from the origin manifest to the MediaTailor personalized manifest.

            No logic is applied to these ad markers. For example, if EXT-X-CUE-OUT has a value of 60, but no ads are filled for that ad break, MediaTailor will not set the value to 0.

            • Enabled (boolean) --

              Enables ad marker passthrough for your configuration.

        • Name (string) --

          The identifier for the playback configuration.

        • PersonalizationThresholdSeconds (integer) --

          Defines the maximum duration of underfilled ad time (in seconds) allowed in an ad break. If the duration of underfilled ad time exceeds the personalization threshold, then the personalization of the ad break is abandoned and the underlying content is shown. This feature applies to ad replacement in live and VOD streams, rather than ad insertion, because it relies on an underlying content stream. For more information about ad break behavior, including ad replacement and insertion, see Ad Behavior in AWS Elemental MediaTailor .

Response Structure

  • (dict) --

    Success.

    • Items (list) --

      Lists the prefetch schedules. An empty Items list doesn't mean there aren't more items to fetch, just that that page was empty.

      • (dict) --

        A complex type that contains prefetch schedule information.

        • Arn (string) --

          The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the prefetch schedule.

        • Consumption (dict) --

          Consumption settings determine how, and when, MediaTailor places the prefetched ads into ad breaks. Ad consumption occurs within a span of time that you define, called a consumption window . You can designate which ad breaks that MediaTailor fills with prefetch ads by setting avail matching criteria.

          • AvailMatchingCriteria (list) --

            If you only want MediaTailor to insert prefetched ads into avails (ad breaks) that match specific dynamic variables, such as scte.event_id, set the avail matching criteria.

            • (dict) --

              MediaTailor only places (consumes) prefetched ads if the ad break meets the criteria defined by the dynamic variables. This gives you granular control over which ad break to place the prefetched ads into.

              As an example, let's say that you set DynamicVariable to scte.event_id and Operator to EQUALS, and your playback configuration has an ADS URL of https://my.ads.server.com/path?&podId=[scte.avail_num]&event=[scte.event_id]&duration=[session.avail_duration_secs]. And the prefetch request to the ADS contains these values https://my.ads.server.com/path?&podId=3&event=my-awesome-event&duration=30. MediaTailor will only insert the prefetched ads into the ad break if has a SCTE marker with an event id of my-awesome-event, since it must match the event id that MediaTailor uses to query the ADS.

              You can specify up to five AvailMatchingCriteria. If you specify multiple AvailMatchingCriteria, MediaTailor combines them to match using a logical AND. You can model logical OR combinations by creating multiple prefetch schedules.

              • DynamicVariable (string) --

                The dynamic variable(s) that MediaTailor should use as avail matching criteria. MediaTailor only places the prefetched ads into the avail if the avail matches the criteria defined by the dynamic variable. For information about dynamic variables, see Using dynamic ad variables in the MediaTailor User Guide .

                You can include up to 100 dynamic variables.

              • Operator (string) --

                For the DynamicVariable specified in AvailMatchingCriteria, the Operator that is used for the comparison.

          • EndTime (datetime) --

            The time when MediaTailor no longer considers the prefetched ads for use in an ad break. MediaTailor automatically deletes prefetch schedules no less than seven days after the end time. If you'd like to manually delete the prefetch schedule, you can call DeletePrefetchSchedule.

          • StartTime (datetime) --

            The time when prefetched ads are considered for use in an ad break. If you don't specify StartTime, the prefetched ads are available after MediaTailor retrives them from the ad decision server.

        • Name (string) --

          The name of the prefetch schedule. The name must be unique among all prefetch schedules that are associated with the specified playback configuration.

        • PlaybackConfigurationName (string) --

          The name of the playback configuration to create the prefetch schedule for.

        • Retrieval (dict) --

          A complex type that contains settings for prefetch retrieval from the ad decision server (ADS).

          • DynamicVariables (dict) --

            The dynamic variables to use for substitution during prefetch requests to the ad decision server (ADS).

            You intially configure dynamic variables for the ADS URL when you set up your playback configuration. When you specify DynamicVariables for prefetch retrieval, MediaTailor includes the dynamic variables in the request to the ADS.

            • (string) --
              • (string) --
          • EndTime (datetime) --

            The time when prefetch retrieval ends for the ad break. Prefetching will be attempted for manifest requests that occur at or before this time.

          • StartTime (datetime) --

            The time when prefetch retrievals can start for this break. Ad prefetching will be attempted for manifest requests that occur at or after this time. Defaults to the current time. If not specified, the prefetch retrieval starts as soon as possible.

        • StreamId (string) --

          An optional stream identifier that you can specify in order to prefetch for multiple streams that use the same playback configuration.

    • NextToken (string) --

      The value that you will use forNextToken in the next ListPrefetchSchedulesRequest request.

list_source_locations(**kwargs)

Parameters
  • AdDecisionServerUrl (string) -- The URL for the ad decision server (ADS). This includes the specification of static parameters and placeholders for dynamic parameters. AWS Elemental MediaTailor substitutes player-specific and session-specific parameters as needed when calling the ADS. Alternately, for testing you can provide a static VAST URL. The maximum length is 25,000 characters.
  • AvailSuppression (dict) --

    The configuration for avail suppression, also known as ad suppression. For more information about ad suppression, see Ad Suppression .

    • Mode (string) --

      Sets the ad suppression mode. By default, ad suppression is off and all ad breaks are filled with ads or slate. When Mode is set to BEHIND_LIVE_EDGE, ad suppression is active and MediaTailor won't fill ad breaks on or behind the ad suppression Value time in the manifest lookback window.

    • Value (string) --

      A live edge offset time in HH:MM:SS. MediaTailor won't fill ad breaks on or behind this time in the manifest lookback window. If Value is set to 00:00:00, it is in sync with the live edge, and MediaTailor won't fill any ad breaks on or behind the live edge. If you set a Value time, MediaTailor won't fill any ad breaks on or behind this time in the manifest lookback window. For example, if you set 00:45:00, then MediaTailor will fill ad breaks that occur within 45 minutes behind the live edge, but won't fill ad breaks on or behind 45 minutes behind the live edge.

  • Bumper (dict) --

    The configuration for bumpers. Bumpers are short audio or video clips that play at the start or before the end of an ad break. To learn more about bumpers, see Bumpers .

    • EndUrl (string) --

      The URL for the end bumper asset.

    • StartUrl (string) --

      The URL for the start bumper asset.

  • CdnConfiguration (dict) --

    The configuration for using a content delivery network (CDN), like Amazon CloudFront, for content and ad segment management.

    • AdSegmentUrlPrefix (string) --

      A non-default content delivery network (CDN) to serve ad segments. By default, AWS Elemental MediaTailor uses Amazon CloudFront with default cache settings as its CDN for ad segments. To set up an alternate CDN, create a rule in your CDN for the origin ads.mediatailor.<region>.amazonaws.com. Then specify the rule's name in this AdSegmentUrlPrefix. When AWS Elemental MediaTailor serves a manifest, it reports your CDN as the source for ad segments.

    • ContentSegmentUrlPrefix (string) --

      A content delivery network (CDN) to cache content segments, so that content requests don’t always have to go to the origin server. First, create a rule in your CDN for the content segment origin server. Then specify the rule's name in this ContentSegmentUrlPrefix. When AWS Elemental MediaTailor serves a manifest, it reports your CDN as the source for content segments.

  • ConfigurationAliases (dict) --

    The player parameters and aliases used as dynamic variables during session initialization. For more information, see Domain Variables .

    • (string) --

      The dynamic variable that has aliases.

      • (dict) --

        Map of aliases to the value to be used at request time.

        • (string) --
          • (string) --
  • DashConfiguration (dict) --

    The configuration for DASH content.

    • MpdLocation (string) --

      The setting that controls whether MediaTailor includes the Location tag in DASH manifests. MediaTailor populates the Location tag with the URL for manifest update requests, to be used by players that don't support sticky redirects. Disable this if you have CDN routing rules set up for accessing MediaTailor manifests, and you are either using client-side reporting or your players support sticky HTTP redirects. Valid values are DISABLED and EMT_DEFAULT. The EMT_DEFAULT setting enables the inclusion of the tag and is the default value.

    • OriginManifestType (string) --

      The setting that controls whether MediaTailor handles manifests from the origin server as multi-period manifests or single-period manifests. If your origin server produces single-period manifests, set this to SINGLE_PERIOD. The default setting is MULTI_PERIOD. For multi-period manifests, omit this setting or set it to MULTI_PERIOD.

  • LivePreRollConfiguration (dict) --

    The configuration for pre-roll ad insertion.

    • AdDecisionServerUrl (string) --

      The URL for the ad decision server (ADS) for pre-roll ads. This includes the specification of static parameters and placeholders for dynamic parameters. AWS Elemental MediaTailor substitutes player-specific and session-specific parameters as needed when calling the ADS. Alternately, for testing, you can provide a static VAST URL. The maximum length is 25,000 characters.

    • MaxDurationSeconds (integer) -- The maximum allowed duration for the pre-roll ad avail. AWS Elemental MediaTailor won't play pre-roll ads to exceed this duration, regardless of the total duration of ads that the ADS returns.
  • ManifestProcessingRules (dict) --

    The configuration for manifest processing rules. Manifest processing rules enable customization of the personalized manifests created by MediaTailor.

    • AdMarkerPassthrough (dict) --

      For HLS, when set to true, MediaTailor passes through EXT-X-CUE-IN, EXT-X-CUE-OUT, and EXT-X-SPLICEPOINT-SCTE35 ad markers from the origin manifest to the MediaTailor personalized manifest.

      No logic is applied to these ad markers. For example, if EXT-X-CUE-OUT has a value of 60, but no ads are filled for that ad break, MediaTailor will not set the value to 0.

      • Enabled (boolean) --

        Enables ad marker passthrough for your configuration.

  • Name (string) -- The identifier for the playback configuration.
  • PersonalizationThresholdSeconds (integer) -- Defines the maximum duration of underfilled ad time (in seconds) allowed in an ad break. If the duration of underfilled ad time exceeds the personalization threshold, then the personalization of the ad break is abandoned and the underlying content is shown. This feature applies to ad replacement in live and VOD streams, rather than ad insertion, because it relies on an underlying content stream. For more information about ad break behavior, including ad replacement and insertion, see Ad Behavior in AWS Elemental MediaTailor .
  • SlateAdUrl (string) -- The URL for a high-quality video asset to transcode and use to fill in time that's not used by ads. AWS Elemental MediaTailor shows the slate to fill in gaps in media content. Configuring the slate is optional for non-VPAID configurations. For VPAID, the slate is required because MediaTailor provides it in the slots that are designated for dynamic ad content. The slate must be a high-quality asset that contains both audio and video.
  • Tags (dict) --

    The tags to assign to the playback configuration.

    • (string) --
      • (string) --
  • TranscodeProfileName (string) -- The name that is used to associate this playback configuration with a custom transcode profile. This overrides the dynamic transcoding defaults of MediaTailor. Use this only if you have already set up custom profiles with the help of AWS Support.
  • VideoContentSourceUrl (string) -- The URL prefix for the parent manifest for the stream, minus the asset ID. The maximum length is 512 characters.

Response Structure

  • (dict) --

    Success.

    • AdDecisionServerUrl (string) --

      The URL for the ad decision server (ADS). This includes the specification of static parameters and placeholders for dynamic parameters. AWS Elemental MediaTailor substitutes player-specific and session-specific parameters as needed when calling the ADS. Alternately, for testing, you can provide a static VAST URL. The maximum length is 25,000 characters.

    • AvailSuppression (dict) --

      The configuration for avail suppression, also known as ad suppression. For more information about ad suppression, see Ad Suppression .

      • Mode (string) --

        Sets the ad suppression mode. By default, ad suppression is off and all ad breaks are filled with ads or slate. When Mode is set to BEHIND_LIVE_EDGE, ad suppression is active and MediaTailor won't fill ad breaks on or behind the ad suppression Value time in the manifest lookback window.

      • Value (string) --

        A live edge offset time in HH:MM:SS. MediaTailor won't fill ad breaks on or behind this time in the manifest lookback window. If Value is set to 00:00:00, it is in sync with the live edge, and MediaTailor won't fill any ad breaks on or behind the live edge. If you set a Value time, MediaTailor won't fill any ad breaks on or behind this time in the manifest lookback window. For example, if you set 00:45:00, then MediaTailor will fill ad breaks that occur within 45 minutes behind the live edge, but won't fill ad breaks on or behind 45 minutes behind the live edge.

    • Bumper (dict) --

      The configuration for bumpers. Bumpers are short audio or video clips that play at the start or before the end of an ad break. To learn more about bumpers, see Bumpers .

      • EndUrl (string) --

        The URL for the end bumper asset.

      • StartUrl (string) --

        The URL for the start bumper asset.

    • CdnConfiguration (dict) --

      The configuration for using a content delivery network (CDN), like Amazon CloudFront, for content and ad segment management.

      • AdSegmentUrlPrefix (string) --

        A non-default content delivery network (CDN) to serve ad segments. By default, AWS Elemental MediaTailor uses Amazon CloudFront with default cache settings as its CDN for ad segments. To set up an alternate CDN, create a rule in your CDN for the origin ads.mediatailor.<region>.amazonaws.com. Then specify the rule's name in this AdSegmentUrlPrefix. When AWS Elemental MediaTailor serves a manifest, it reports your CDN as the source for ad segments.

      • ContentSegmentUrlPrefix (string) --

        A content delivery network (CDN) to cache content segments, so that content requests don’t always have to go to the origin server. First, create a rule in your CDN for the content segment origin server. Then specify the rule's name in this ContentSegmentUrlPrefix. When AWS Elemental MediaTailor serves a manifest, it reports your CDN as the source for content segments.

    • ConfigurationAliases (dict) --

      The player parameters and aliases used as dynamic variables during session initialization. For more information, see Domain Variables .

      • (string) --

        The dynamic variable that has aliases.

            • (string) --
    • DashConfiguration (dict) --

      The configuration for DASH content.

      • ManifestEndpointPrefix (string) --

        The URL generated by MediaTailor to initiate a playback session. The session uses server-side reporting. This setting is ignored in PUT operations.

      • MpdLocation (string) --

        The setting that controls whether MediaTailor includes the Location tag in DASH manifests. MediaTailor populates the Location tag with the URL for manifest update requests, to be used by players that don't support sticky redirects. Disable this if you have CDN routing rules set up for accessing MediaTailor manifests, and you are either using client-side reporting or your players support sticky HTTP redirects. Valid values are DISABLED and EMT_DEFAULT. The EMT_DEFAULT setting enables the inclusion of the tag and is the default value.

      • OriginManifestType (string) --

        The setting that controls whether MediaTailor handles manifests from the origin server as multi-period manifests or single-period manifests. If your origin server produces single-period manifests, set this to SINGLE_PERIOD. The default setting is MULTI_PERIOD. For multi-period manifests, omit this setting or set it to MULTI_PERIOD.

    • HlsConfiguration (dict) --

      The configuration for HLS content.

      • ManifestEndpointPrefix (string) --

        The URL that is used to initiate a playback session for devices that support Apple HLS. The session uses server-side reporting.

      • AdDecisionServerUrl (string) --

        The URL for the ad decision server (ADS) for pre-roll ads. This includes the specification of static parameters and placeholders for dynamic parameters. AWS Elemental MediaTailor substitutes player-specific and session-specific parameters as needed when calling the ADS. Alternately, for testing, you can provide a static VAST URL. The maximum length is 25,000 characters.

      • MaxDurationSeconds (integer) -- The maximum allowed duration for the pre-roll ad avail. AWS Elemental MediaTailor won't play pre-roll ads to exceed this duration, regardless of the total duration of ads that the ADS returns.

    • LogConfiguration (dict) --

      The Amazon CloudWatch log settings for a playback configuration.

      • PercentEnabled (integer) --

        The percentage of session logs that MediaTailor sends to your Cloudwatch Logs account. For example, if your playback configuration has 1000 sessions and percentEnabled is set to 60, MediaTailor sends logs for 600 of the sessions to CloudWatch Logs. MediaTailor decides at random which of the playback configuration sessions to send logs for. If you want to view logs for a specific session, you can use the debug log mode .

        Valid values: 0 - 100

        • You must allow MediaTailor to access your S3 bucket by granting mediatailor.amazonaws.com principal access in IAM. For information about configuring access in IAM, see Access management in the IAM User Guide.
        • The mediatailor.amazonaws.com service principal must have permissions to read all top level manifests referenced by the VodSource packaging configurations.
        • The caller of the API must have s3:GetObject IAM permissions to read all top level manifests referenced by your MediaTailor VodSource packaging configurations.

          The URL for the ad decision server (ADS). This includes the specification of static parameters and placeholders for dynamic parameters. AWS Elemental MediaTailor substitutes player-specific and session-specific parameters as needed when calling the ADS. Alternately, for testing you can provide a static VAST URL. The maximum length is 25,000 characters.

        • AvailSuppression (dict) --

          The configuration for avail suppression, also known as ad suppression. For more information about ad suppression, see Ad Suppression .

          • Mode (string) --

            Sets the ad suppression mode. By default, ad suppression is off and all ad breaks are filled with ads or slate. When Mode is set to BEHIND_LIVE_EDGE, ad suppression is active and MediaTailor won't fill ad breaks on or behind the ad suppression Value time in the manifest lookback window.

          • Value (string) --

            A live edge offset time in HH:MM:SS. MediaTailor won't fill ad breaks on or behind this time in the manifest lookback window. If Value is set to 00:00:00, it is in sync with the live edge, and MediaTailor won't fill any ad breaks on or behind the live edge. If you set a Value time, MediaTailor won't fill any ad breaks on or behind this time in the manifest lookback window. For example, if you set 00:45:00, then MediaTailor will fill ad breaks that occur within 45 minutes behind the live edge, but won't fill ad breaks on or behind 45 minutes behind the live edge.

        • Bumper (dict) --

          The configuration for bumpers. Bumpers are short audio or video clips that play at the start or before the end of an ad break. To learn more about bumpers, see Bumpers .

          • EndUrl (string) --

            The URL for the end bumper asset.

          • StartUrl (string) --

            The URL for the start bumper asset.

        • CdnConfiguration (dict) --

          The configuration for using a content delivery network (CDN), like Amazon CloudFront, for content and ad segment management.

          • AdSegmentUrlPrefix (string) --

            A non-default content delivery network (CDN) to serve ad segments. By default, AWS Elemental MediaTailor uses Amazon CloudFront with default cache settings as its CDN for ad segments. To set up an alternate CDN, create a rule in your CDN for the origin ads.mediatailor.<region>.amazonaws.com. Then specify the rule's name in this AdSegmentUrlPrefix. When AWS Elemental MediaTailor serves a manifest, it reports your CDN as the source for ad segments.

          • ContentSegmentUrlPrefix (string) --

            A content delivery network (CDN) to cache content segments, so that content requests don’t always have to go to the origin server. First, create a rule in your CDN for the content segment origin server. Then specify the rule's name in this ContentSegmentUrlPrefix. When AWS Elemental MediaTailor serves a manifest, it reports your CDN as the source for content segments.

        • ConfigurationAliases (dict) --

          The player parameters and aliases used as dynamic variables during session initialization. For more information, see Domain Variables .

          • (string) --

            The dynamic variable that has aliases.

            • (dict) --

              Map of aliases to the value to be used at request time.

              • (string) --
                • (string) --
        • DashConfiguration (dict) --

          The configuration for a DASH source.

          • ManifestEndpointPrefix (string) --

            The URL generated by MediaTailor to initiate a playback session. The session uses server-side reporting. This setting is ignored in PUT operations.

          • MpdLocation (string) --

            The setting that controls whether MediaTailor includes the Location tag in DASH manifests. MediaTailor populates the Location tag with the URL for manifest update requests, to be used by players that don't support sticky redirects. Disable this if you have CDN routing rules set up for accessing MediaTailor manifests, and you are either using client-side reporting or your players support sticky HTTP redirects. Valid values are DISABLED and EMT_DEFAULT. The EMT_DEFAULT setting enables the inclusion of the tag and is the default value.

          • OriginManifestType (string) --

            The setting that controls whether MediaTailor handles manifests from the origin server as multi-period manifests or single-period manifests. If your origin server produces single-period manifests, set this to SINGLE_PERIOD. The default setting is MULTI_PERIOD. For multi-period manifests, omit this setting or set it to MULTI_PERIOD.

        • HlsConfiguration (dict) --

          The configuration for HLS content.

          • ManifestEndpointPrefix (string) --

            The URL that is used to initiate a playback session for devices that support Apple HLS. The session uses server-side reporting.

        • LivePreRollConfiguration (dict) --

          The configuration for pre-roll ad insertion.

          • AdDecisionServerUrl (string) --

            The URL for the ad decision server (ADS) for pre-roll ads. This includes the specification of static parameters and placeholders for dynamic parameters. AWS Elemental MediaTailor substitutes player-specific and session-specific parameters as needed when calling the ADS. Alternately, for testing, you can provide a static VAST URL. The maximum length is 25,000 characters.

          • MaxDurationSeconds (integer) -- The maximum allowed duration for the pre-roll ad avail. AWS Elemental MediaTailor won't play pre-roll ads to exceed this duration, regardless of the total duration of ads that the ADS returns.
        • LogConfiguration (dict) --

          The Amazon CloudWatch log settings for a playback configuration.

          • PercentEnabled (integer) --

            The percentage of session logs that MediaTailor sends to your Cloudwatch Logs account. For example, if your playback configuration has 1000 sessions and percentEnabled is set to 60, MediaTailor sends logs for 600 of the sessions to CloudWatch Logs. MediaTailor decides at random which of the playback configuration sessions to send logs for. If you want to view logs for a specific session, you can use the debug log mode .

            Valid values: 0 - 100

        • ManifestProcessingRules (dict) --

          The configuration for manifest processing rules. Manifest processing rules enable customization of the personalized manifests created by MediaTailor.

          • AdMarkerPassthrough (dict) --

            For HLS, when set to true, MediaTailor passes through EXT-X-CUE-IN, EXT-X-CUE-OUT, and EXT-X-SPLICEPOINT-SCTE35 ad markers from the origin manifest to the MediaTailor personalized manifest.

            No logic is applied to these ad markers. For example, if EXT-X-CUE-OUT has a value of 60, but no ads are filled for that ad break, MediaTailor will not set the value to 0.

            • Enabled (boolean) --

              Enables ad marker passthrough for your configuration.

        • Name (string) --

          The identifier for the playback configuration.

        • PersonalizationThresholdSeconds (integer) --

          Defines the maximum duration of underfilled ad time (in seconds) allowed in an ad break. If the duration of underfilled ad time exceeds the personalization threshold, then the personalization of the ad break is abandoned and the underlying content is shown. This feature applies to ad replacement in live and VOD streams, rather than ad insertion, because it relies on an underlying content stream. For more information about ad break behavior, including ad replacement and insertion, see Ad Behavior in AWS Elemental MediaTailor .

        • PlaybackConfigurationArn (string) --

          The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) for the playback configuration.

        • PlaybackEndpointPrefix (string) --

          The URL that the player accesses to get a manifest from AWS Elemental MediaTailor.

        • SessionInitializationEndpointPrefix (string) --

          The URL that the player uses to initialize a session that uses client-side reporting.

        • SlateAdUrl (string) --

          The URL for a video asset to transcode and use to fill in time that's not used by ads. AWS Elemental MediaTailor shows the slate to fill in gaps in media content. Configuring the slate is optional for non-VPAID playback configurations. For VPAID, the slate is required because MediaTailor provides it in the slots designated for dynamic ad content. The slate must be a high-quality asset that contains both audio and video.

        • Tags (dict) --

          The tags to assign to the playback configuration.

          • (string) --
            • (string) --
        • TranscodeProfileName (string) --

          The name that is used to associate this playback configuration with a custom transcode profile. This overrides the dynamic transcoding defaults of MediaTailor. Use this only if you have already set up custom profiles with the help of AWS Support.

        • VideoContentSourceUrl (string) --

          The URL prefix for the parent manifest for the stream, minus the asset ID. The maximum length is 512 characters.

Response Structure

  • (dict) --

    Success.

    • Items (list) --

      Lists the prefetch schedules. An empty Items list doesn't mean there aren't more items to fetch, just that that page was empty.

      • (dict) --

        A complex type that contains prefetch schedule information.

        • Arn (string) --

          The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the prefetch schedule.

        • Consumption (dict) --

          Consumption settings determine how, and when, MediaTailor places the prefetched ads into ad breaks. Ad consumption occurs within a span of time that you define, called a consumption window . You can designate which ad breaks that MediaTailor fills with prefetch ads by setting avail matching criteria.

          • AvailMatchingCriteria (list) --

            If you only want MediaTailor to insert prefetched ads into avails (ad breaks) that match specific dynamic variables, such as scte.event_id, set the avail matching criteria.

            • (dict) --

              MediaTailor only places (consumes) prefetched ads if the ad break meets the criteria defined by the dynamic variables. This gives you granular control over which ad break to place the prefetched ads into.

              As an example, let's say that you set DynamicVariable to scte.event_id and Operator to EQUALS, and your playback configuration has an ADS URL of https://my.ads.server.com/path?&podId=[scte.avail_num]&event=[scte.event_id]&duration=[session.avail_duration_secs]. And the prefetch request to the ADS contains these values https://my.ads.server.com/path?&podId=3&event=my-awesome-event&duration=30. MediaTailor will only insert the prefetched ads into the ad break if has a SCTE marker with an event id of my-awesome-event, since it must match the event id that MediaTailor uses to query the ADS.

              You can specify up to five AvailMatchingCriteria. If you specify multiple AvailMatchingCriteria, MediaTailor combines them to match using a logical AND. You can model logical OR combinations by creating multiple prefetch schedules.

              • DynamicVariable (string) --

                The dynamic variable(s) that MediaTailor should use as avail matching criteria. MediaTailor only places the prefetched ads into the avail if the avail matches the criteria defined by the dynamic variable. For information about dynamic variables, see Using dynamic ad variables in the MediaTailor User Guide .

                You can include up to 100 dynamic variables.

              • Operator (string) --

                For the DynamicVariable specified in AvailMatchingCriteria, the Operator that is used for the comparison.

          • EndTime (datetime) --

            The time when MediaTailor no longer considers the prefetched ads for use in an ad break. MediaTailor automatically deletes prefetch schedules no less than seven days after the end time. If you'd like to manually delete the prefetch schedule, you can call DeletePrefetchSchedule.

          • StartTime (datetime) --

            The time when prefetched ads are considered for use in an ad break. If you don't specify StartTime, the prefetched ads are available after MediaTailor retrives them from the ad decision server.

        • Name (string) --

          The name of the prefetch schedule. The name must be unique among all prefetch schedules that are associated with the specified playback configuration.

        • PlaybackConfigurationName (string) --

          The name of the playback configuration to create the prefetch schedule for.

        • Retrieval (dict) --

          A complex type that contains settings for prefetch retrieval from the ad decision server (ADS).

          • DynamicVariables (dict) --

            The dynamic variables to use for substitution during prefetch requests to the ad decision server (ADS).

            You intially configure dynamic variables for the ADS URL when you set up your playback configuration. When you specify DynamicVariables for prefetch retrieval, MediaTailor includes the dynamic variables in the request to the ADS.

            • (string) --
              • (string) --
          • EndTime (datetime) --

            The time when prefetch retrieval ends for the ad break. Prefetching will be attempted for manifest requests that occur at or before this time.

          • StartTime (datetime) --

            The time when prefetch retrievals can start for this break. Ad prefetching will be attempted for manifest requests that occur at or after this time. Defaults to the current time. If not specified, the prefetch retrieval starts as soon as possible.

        • StreamId (string) --

          An optional stream identifier that you can specify in order to prefetch for multiple streams that use the same playback configuration.
