Azure regions in which Azure AI Video Indexer exists


Due to the Azure Media Services retirement announcement, Azure AI Video Indexer announces Azure AI Video Indexer features adjustments. See Changes related to Azure Media Service (AMS) retirement to understand what this means for your Azure AI Video Indexer account. See the Preparing for AMS retirement: VI update and migration guide.

Azure AI Video Indexer APIs contain a location parameter that you should set to the Azure region to which the call should be routed. This must be an Azure region in which Azure AI Video Indexer is available.


The location parameter must be given the Azure region code name as its value. If you are using Azure AI Video Indexer in preview mode, you should put "trial" as the value. trial is the default value for the location parameter. Otherwise, to get the code name of the Azure region that your account is in and that your call should be routed to, you can use the Azure portal or run a Azure CLI command.

Azure portal

  1. Sign in on the Azure AI Video Indexer website.

  2. Select User accounts from the top-right corner of the page.

  3. Find the location of your account in the top-right corner.


CLI command

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/00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000/locations/westus2",
      "latitude": "47.233",
      "longitude": "-119.852",
      "name": "westus2",
      "subscriptionId": null
