How Azure Media Services API will response for requests sent after 30th of June

I have questions regarding Azure Media Services like converting/transform one video format file to another. How AMS will behave after 30th of June if I will try to send CreateOrUpdate asset or transform operation request? Will API do not accept request or transform will be possible? In article following sentence is written:

On July 1, 2024, code using APIs with AMS parameters will no longer be supported. This applies to both control plane and data plane operations.

But what does it mean. HTTP 404 will be returned or some different kind of response?

    @Tomasz Rudnik Thanks for reaching here! I reached out to product team and they said that last week we made a one-time extension available that allows customers to update their account and extend its life for 30 days.  That extension is possible now with Azure Media Services Explorer ( today and will be available in the Azure Portal on June 19th. 

    If you do not activate this extension, then the account will be turned off the week of July 1st.  The turn off takes place over 8 days.  The specific turn-off date can be seen now in the Azure portal. Extending your account gives you 30 additional days to continue migration and validation of your new solution.  During that 30-day extension your account will operate normally.  However, the account will be turned off after July 31st over a similar 8-day period.


    When an account is turned off, three things happen:

    • The streaming endpoint is turned off.  Clients will not be able to stream videos.
    • Live events and live outputs are stopped.
    • The REST API only allows reads and deletes.  Or more specifically, GET and DELETE operations.


    After the account has been disabled for 90 days, the account will be deleted.  This means that accounts that do not set the extension will be deleted at the end of September and accounts that have been extended will be deleted at the end of October..


    To answer the your question, this means that once the account is disabled, you will not be able to submit changes to transforms or encoding jobs.

    Hope this helps.

    @Tomasz Rudnik Update- For Mooncake or Fairfax regions the option to extend is live in the Azure portal now.

    Let us know if further assistance is needed.
