Overview

Package chime provides the client and types for making API requests to Amazon Chime.

The Amazon Chime API (application programming interface) is designed for developers to perform key tasks, such as creating and managing Amazon Chime accounts, users, and Voice Connectors. This guide provides detailed information about the Amazon Chime API, including operations, types, inputs and outputs, and error codes. It also includes some server-side API actions to use with the Amazon Chime SDK. For more information about the Amazon Chime SDK, see Using the Amazon Chime SDK (https://docs.aws.amazon.com/chime/latest/dg/meetings-sdk.html) in the Amazon Chime Developer Guide.

You can use an AWS SDK, the AWS Command Line Interface (AWS CLI), or the REST API to make API calls. We recommend using an AWS SDK or the AWS CLI. Each API operation includes links to information about using it with a language-specific AWS SDK or the AWS CLI.

Using an AWS SDK

You don't need to write code to calculate a signature for request authentication. The SDK clients authenticate your requests by using access keys that you provide. For more information about AWS SDKs, see the AWS Developer Center (http://aws.amazon.com/developer/).

Using the AWS CLI

Use your access keys with the AWS CLI to make API calls. For information about setting up the AWS CLI, see Installing the AWS Command Line Interface (https://docs.aws.amazon.com/cli/latest/userguide/installing.html) in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide. For a list of available Amazon Chime commands, see the Amazon Chime commands (https://docs.aws.amazon.com/cli/latest/reference/chime/index.html) in the AWS CLI Command Reference.

Using REST API

If you use REST to make API calls, you must authenticate your request by providing a signature. Amazon Chime supports signature version 4. For more information, see Signature Version 4 Signing Process (https://docs.aws.amazon.com/general/latest/gr/signature-version-4.html) in the Amazon Web Services General Reference.

When making REST API calls, use the service name chime and REST endpoint https://service.chime.aws.amazon.com.

Administrative permissions are controlled using AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM). For more information, see Identity and Access Management for Amazon Chime (https://docs.aws.amazon.com/chime/latest/ag/security-iam.html) in the Amazon Chime Administration Guide.

See https://docs.aws.amazon.com/goto/WebAPI/chime-2018-05-01 for more information on this service.

See chime package documentation for more information. https://docs.aws.amazon.com/sdk-for-go/api/service/chime/

Using the Client

To contact Amazon Chime with the SDK use the New function to create a new service client. With that client you can make API requests to the service. These clients are safe to use concurrently.

See the SDK's documentation for more information on how to use the SDK. https://docs.aws.amazon.com/sdk-for-go/api/

See aws.Config documentation for more information on configuring SDK clients. https://docs.aws.amazon.com/sdk-for-go/api/aws/#Config

See the Amazon Chime client Chime for more information on creating client for this service. https://docs.aws.amazon.com/sdk-for-go/api/service/chime/#New
