token authorization


I enabled the token authorization on a “Stream targets” but I have a message saying "

Your authorization configuration is being prepared. This may take a few minutes."

It’s been 3 hours… how long does it take ?

Hello Stephane,

Yes, there is still an issue with token auth and geo blocking on the Wowza Cloud platform currently. Please be sure to check out Status Site for the latest updates.

You will see the current post there that refers to this issue.

For now, please log a support request (if you haven’t already) and provide the stream target details and we can request a manual provisioning for your token auth need.

I hope this clarifies.



Hey @Mac Hill - How are we looking with this issue? We’re looking at provisioning a half dozen new streaming locations over the next few weeks and could really do with a quick turnaround on token generation. Are you still handling this on a case-by-case, or are you working on automating the process again?
