Operation description

  • You cannot call this operation to delete the default transcoding template. You can delete the transcoding template when it is no longer specified as the default one.
  • For security purposes, you cannot add, modify, or delete transcoding templates in a transcoding template group that is locked. To check whether a transcoding template group is locked, call the GetTranscodeTemplateGroup operation and obtain the Locked parameter from the response. To modify transcoding templates within a locked transcoding template group, you must call the UpdateTranscodeTemplateGroup operation to unlock the transcoding template group first.
