Regions/geographies/locations

Regions in which the Azure Media Services service is deployed

Region code name

When you need to supply the location parameter, you need to provide the region code name as the location value. To get the code name of the region that your account is in and that your call should be routed to, you can run the following line in Azure CLI

az account list-locations

Once you run the line shown above, you get a list of all Azure regions. Navigate to the Azure region that has the displayName you are looking for, and use its name value for the location parameter.

For example, for the Azure region West US 2 (displayed below), you will use "westus2" for the location parameter.

   {
      "displayName": "West US 2",
      "id": "/subscriptions/00000000-23da-4fce-b59c-f6fb9513eeeb/locations/westus2",
