Client

class GameLift.Client

A low-level client representing Amazon GameLift:

import boto3

client = boto3.client('gamelift')

These are the available methods:

accept_match(**kwargs)

Registers a player's acceptance or rejection of a proposed FlexMatch match. A matchmaking configuration may require player acceptance; if so, then matches built with that configuration cannot be completed unless all players accept the proposed match within a specified time limit.

When FlexMatch builds a match, all the matchmaking tickets involved in the proposed match are placed into status REQUIRES_ACCEPTANCE . This is a trigger for your game to get acceptance from all players in the ticket. Acceptances are only valid for tickets when they are in this status; all other acceptances result in an error.

To register acceptance, specify the ticket ID, a response, and one or more players. Once all players have registered acceptance, the matchmaking tickets advance to status PLACING , where a new game session is created for the match.

If any player rejects the match, or if acceptances are not received before a specified timeout, the proposed match is dropped. The matchmaking tickets are then handled in one of two ways: For tickets where one or more players rejected the match, the ticket status is returned to SEARCHING to find a new match. For tickets where one or more players failed to respond, the ticket status is set to CANCELLED , and processing is terminated. A new matchmaking request for these players can be submitted as needed.

can_paginate(operation_name)

Check if an operation can be paginated.

Parameters
operation_name (string) -- The operation name. This is the same name as the method name on the client. For example, if the method name is create_foo, and you'd normally invoke the operation as client.create_foo(**kwargs), if the create_foo operation can be paginated, you can use the call client.get_paginator("create_foo").
Returns
True if the operation can be paginated, False otherwise.
claim_game_server(**kwargs)
This operation is used with the Amazon GameLift FleetIQ solution and game server groups.

Locates an available game server and temporarily reserves it to host gameplay and players. This operation is called from a game client or client service (such as a matchmaker) to request hosting resources for a new game session. In response, GameLift FleetIQ locates an available game server, places it in CLAIMED status for 60 seconds, and returns connection information that players can use to connect to the game server.

To claim a game server, identify a game server group. You can also specify a game server ID, although this approach bypasses GameLift FleetIQ placement optimization. Optionally, include game data to pass to the game server at the start of a game session, such as a game map or player information.

When a game server is successfully claimed, connection information is returned. A claimed game server's utilization status remains AVAILABLE while the claim status is set to CLAIMED for up to 60 seconds. This time period gives the game server time to update its status to UTILIZED (using UpdateGameServer ) once players join. If the game server's status is not updated within 60 seconds, the game server reverts to unclaimed status and is available to be claimed by another request. The claim time period is a fixed value and is not configurable.

If you try to claim a specific game server, this request will fail in the following cases:

  • If the game server utilization status is UTILIZED .
  • If the game server claim status is CLAIMED .

Note

When claiming a specific game server, this request will succeed even if the game server is running on an instance in DRAINING status. To avoid this, first check the instance status by calling DescribeGameServerInstances .

      • ClaimStatus (string) --

        Indicates when an available game server has been reserved for gameplay but has not yet started hosting a game. Once it is claimed, the game server remains in CLAIMED status for a maximum of one minute. During this time, game clients connect to the game server to start the game and trigger the game server to update its utilization status. After one minute, the game server claim status reverts to null.

      • UtilizationStatus (string) --

        Indicates whether the game server is currently available for new games or is busy. Possible statuses include:

        • AVAILABLE - The game server is available to be claimed. A game server that has been claimed remains in this status until it reports game hosting activity.
        • UTILIZED - The game server is currently hosting a game session with players.
      • RegistrationTime (datetime) --

        Timestamp that indicates when the game server was created with a RegisterGameServer request. The format is a number expressed in Unix time as milliseconds (for example "1469498468.057" ).

      • LastClaimTime (datetime) --

        Timestamp that indicates the last time the game server was claimed with a ClaimGameServer request. The format is a number expressed in Unix time as milliseconds (for example "1469498468.057" ). This value is used to calculate when a claimed game server's status should revert to null.

      • LastHealthCheckTime (datetime) --

        Timestamp that indicates the last time the game server was updated with health status using an UpdateGameServer request. The format is a number expressed in Unix time as milliseconds (for example "1469498468.057" ). After game server registration, this property is only changed when a game server update specifies a health check value.

create_alias(**kwargs)

Creates an alias for a fleet. In most situations, you can use an alias ID in place of a fleet ID. An alias provides a level of abstraction for a fleet that is useful when redirecting player traffic from one fleet to another, such as when updating your game build.

Amazon GameLift supports two types of routing strategies for aliases: simple and terminal. A simple alias points to an active fleet. A terminal alias is used to display messaging or link to a URL instead of routing players to an active fleet. For example, you might use a terminal alias when a game version is no longer supported and you want to direct players to an upgrade site.

To create a fleet alias, specify an alias name, routing strategy, and optional description. Each simple alias can point to only one fleet, but a fleet can have multiple aliases. If successful, a new alias record is returned, including an alias ID and an ARN. You can reassign an alias to another fleet by calling UpdateAlias .

create_build(**kwargs)

Creates a new Amazon GameLift build resource for your game server binary files. Game server binaries must be combined into a zip file for use with Amazon GameLift.

Warning

When setting up a new game build for GameLift, we recommend using the AWS CLI command ** upload-build ** . This helper command combines two tasks: (1) it uploads your build files from a file directory to a GameLift Amazon S3 location, and (2) it creates a new build resource.

The CreateBuild operation can used in the following scenarios:

  • To create a new game build with build files that are in an S3 location under an AWS account that you control. To use this option, you must first give Amazon GameLift access to the S3 bucket. With permissions in place, call CreateBuild and specify a build name, operating system, and the S3 storage location of your game build.
  • To directly upload your build files to a GameLift S3 location. To use this option, first call CreateBuild and specify a build name and operating system. This operation creates a new build resource and also returns an S3 location with temporary access credentials. Use the credentials to manually upload your build files to the specified S3 location. For more information, see Uploading Objects in the Amazon S3 Developer Guide . Build files can be uploaded to the GameLift S3 location once only; that can't be updated.

If successful, this operation creates a new build resource with a unique build ID and places it in INITIALIZED status. A build must be in READY status before you can create fleets with it.

Parameters
  • Name (string) -- A descriptive label that is associated with a build. Build names do not need to be unique. You can use UpdateBuild to change this value later.
  • Version (string) -- Version information that is associated with a build or script. Version strings do not need to be unique. You can use UpdateBuild to change this value later.
  • StorageLocation (dict) --

    The location where your game build files are stored. Use this parameter only when creating a build using files that are stored in an S3 bucket that you own. Identify an S3 bucket name and key, which must in the same Region where you're creating a build. This parameter must also specify the ARN for an IAM role that you've set up to give Amazon GameLift access your S3 bucket. To call this operation with a storage location, you must have IAM PassRole permission. For more details on IAM roles and PassRole permissions, see Set up a role for GameLift access .

    • Bucket (string) --

      An S3 bucket identifier. This is the name of the S3 bucket.

      Note

      GameLift currently does not support uploading from S3 buckets with names that contain a dot (.).

    • Key (string) --

      The name of the zip file that contains the build files or script files.

    • RoleArn (string) --

      The Amazon Resource Name (ARN ) for an IAM role that allows Amazon GameLift to access the S3 bucket.

    • ObjectVersion (string) --

      The version of the file, if object versioning is turned on for the bucket. Amazon GameLift uses this information when retrieving files from an S3 bucket that you own. Use this parameter to specify a specific version of the file. If not set, the latest version of the file is retrieved.

  • OperatingSystem (string) -- The operating system that the game server binaries are built to run on. This value determines the type of fleet resources that you can use for this build. If your game build contains multiple executables, they all must run on the same operating system. If an operating system is not specified when creating a build, Amazon GameLift uses the default value (WINDOWS_2012). This value cannot be changed later.
  • Tags (list) --

    A list of labels to assign to the new build resource. Tags are developer-defined key-value pairs. Tagging AWS resources are useful for resource management, access management and cost allocation. For more information, see Tagging AWS Resources in the AWS General Reference . Once the resource is created, you can use TagResource , UntagResource , and ListTagsForResource to add, remove, and view tags. The maximum tag limit may be lower than stated. See the AWS General Reference for actual tagging limits.

create_fleet(**kwargs)

Creates a new fleet to run your game servers. whether they are custom game builds or Realtime Servers with game-specific script. A fleet is a set of Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instances, each of which can host multiple game sessions. When creating a fleet, you choose the hardware specifications, set some configuration options, and specify the game server to deploy on the new fleet.

To create a new fleet, provide the following: (1) a fleet name, (2) an EC2 instance type and fleet type (spot or on-demand), (3) the build ID for your game build or script ID if using Realtime Servers, and (4) a runtime configuration, which determines how game servers will run on each instance in the fleet.

If the CreateFleet call is successful, Amazon GameLift performs the following tasks. You can track the process of a fleet by checking the fleet status or by monitoring fleet creation events:

  • Creates a fleet resource. Status: NEW .
  • Begins writing events to the fleet event log, which can be accessed in the Amazon GameLift console.
  • Sets the fleet's target capacity to 1 (desired instances), which triggers Amazon GameLift to start one new EC2 instance.
  • Downloads the game build or Realtime script to the new instance and installs it. Statuses: DOWNLOADING , VALIDATING , BUILDING .
  • Starts launching server processes on the instance. If the fleet is configured to run multiple server processes per instance, Amazon GameLift staggers each process launch by a few seconds. Status: ACTIVATING .
  • Sets the fleet's status to ACTIVE as soon as one server process is ready to host a game session.

Parameters
  • Name (string) --

    [REQUIRED]

    A descriptive label that is associated with a fleet. Fleet names do not need to be unique.

  • Description (string) -- A human-readable description of a fleet.
  • BuildId (string) -- A unique identifier for a build to be deployed on the new fleet. You can use either the build ID or ARN value. The custom game server build must have been successfully uploaded to Amazon GameLift and be in a READY status. This fleet setting cannot be changed once the fleet is created.
  • ScriptId (string) -- A unique identifier for a Realtime script to be deployed on the new fleet. You can use either the script ID or ARN value. The Realtime script must have been successfully uploaded to Amazon GameLift. This fleet setting cannot be changed once the fleet is created.
  • ServerLaunchPath (string) -- This parameter is no longer used. Instead, specify a server launch path using the RuntimeConfiguration parameter. Requests that specify a server launch path and launch parameters instead of a runtime configuration will continue to work.
  • ServerLaunchParameters (string) -- This parameter is no longer used. Instead, specify server launch parameters in the RuntimeConfiguration parameter. (Requests that specify a server launch path and launch parameters instead of a runtime configuration will continue to work.)
  • LogPaths (list) --

    This parameter is no longer used. Instead, to specify where Amazon GameLift should store log files once a server process shuts down, use the Amazon GameLift server API ProcessReady() and specify one or more directory paths in logParameters . See more information in the Server API Reference .

    • (string) --
  • EC2InstanceType (string) --

    [REQUIRED]

    The name of an EC2 instance type that is supported in Amazon GameLift. A fleet instance type determines the computing resources of each instance in the fleet, including CPU, memory, storage, and networking capacity. Amazon GameLift supports the following EC2 instance types. See Amazon EC2 Instance Types for detailed descriptions.

  • EC2InboundPermissions (list) --

    Range of IP addresses and port settings that permit inbound traffic to access game sessions that are running on the fleet. For fleets using a custom game build, this parameter is required before game sessions running on the fleet can accept connections. For Realtime Servers fleets, Amazon GameLift automatically sets TCP and UDP ranges for use by the Realtime servers. You can specify multiple permission settings or add more by updating the fleet.

    • (dict) --

      A range of IP addresses and port settings that allow inbound traffic to connect to server processes on an Amazon GameLift hosting resource. New game sessions that are started on the fleet are assigned an IP address/port number combination, which must fall into the fleet's allowed ranges. For fleets created with a custom game server, the ranges reflect the server's game session assignments. For Realtime Servers fleets, Amazon GameLift automatically opens two port ranges, one for TCP messaging and one for UDP for use by the Realtime servers.

      • FromPort (integer) -- [REQUIRED]

        A starting value for a range of allowed port numbers.

      • ToPort (integer) -- [REQUIRED]

        An ending value for a range of allowed port numbers. Port numbers are end-inclusive. This value must be higher than FromPort .

      • IpRange (string) -- [REQUIRED]

        A range of allowed IP addresses. This value must be expressed in CIDR notation. Example: "000.000.000.000/[subnet mask] " or optionally the shortened version "0.0.0.0/[subnet mask] ".

      • Protocol (string) -- [REQUIRED]

        The network communication protocol used by the fleet.

  • NewGameSessionProtectionPolicy (string) --

    A game session protection policy to apply to all instances in this fleet. If this parameter is not set, instances in this fleet default to no protection. You can change a fleet's protection policy using UpdateFleetAttributes , but this change will only affect sessions created after the policy change. You can also set protection for individual instances using UpdateGameSession .

    • NoProtection - The game session can be terminated during a scale-down event.
    • FullProtection - If the game session is in an ACTIVE status, it cannot be terminated during a scale-down event.
  • RuntimeConfiguration (dict) --

    Instructions for launching server processes on each instance in the fleet. Server processes run either a custom game build executable or a Realtime script. The runtime configuration defines the server executables or launch script file, launch parameters, and the number of processes to run concurrently on each instance. When creating a fleet, the runtime configuration must have at least one server process configuration; otherwise the request fails with an invalid request exception. (This parameter replaces the parameters ServerLaunchPath and ServerLaunchParameters , although requests that contain values for these parameters instead of a runtime configuration will continue to work.) This parameter is required unless the parameters ServerLaunchPath and ServerLaunchParameters are defined. Runtime configuration replaced these parameters, but fleets that use them will continue to work.

    • ServerProcesses (list) --

      A collection of server process configurations that describe which server processes to run on each instance in a fleet.

      • (dict) --

        A set of instructions for launching server processes on each instance in a fleet. Server processes run either a custom game build executable or a Realtime Servers script. Each instruction set identifies the location of the custom game build executable or Realtime launch script, optional launch parameters, and the number of server processes with this configuration to maintain concurrently on the instance. Server process configurations make up a fleet's `` RuntimeConfiguration `` .

        • LaunchPath (string) -- [REQUIRED]

          The location of the server executable in a custom game build or the name of the Realtime script file that contains the Init() function. Game builds and Realtime scripts are installed on instances at the root:

          • Windows (for custom game builds only): C:\game . Example: "C:\game\MyGame\server.exe "
          • Linux: /local/game . Examples: "/local/game/MyGame/server.exe " or "/local/game/MyRealtimeScript.js "
        • Parameters (string) --

          An optional list of parameters to pass to the server executable or Realtime script on launch.

        • ConcurrentExecutions (integer) -- [REQUIRED]

          The number of server processes that use this configuration to run concurrently on an instance.

    • MaxConcurrentGameSessionActivations (integer) --

      The maximum number of game sessions with status ACTIVATING to allow on an instance simultaneously. This setting limits the amount of instance resources that can be used for new game activations at any one time.

    • GameSessionActivationTimeoutSeconds (integer) --

      The maximum amount of time (in seconds) that a game session can remain in status ACTIVATING . If the game session is not active before the timeout, activation is terminated and the game session status is changed to TERMINATED .

  • ResourceCreationLimitPolicy (dict) --

    A policy that limits the number of game sessions an individual player can create over a span of time for this fleet.

    • NewGameSessionsPerCreator (integer) --

      The maximum number of game sessions that an individual can create during the policy period.

    • PolicyPeriodInMinutes (integer) --

      The time span used in evaluating the resource creation limit policy.

  • MetricGroups (list) --

    The name of an Amazon CloudWatch metric group to add this fleet to. A metric group aggregates the metrics for all fleets in the group. Specify an existing metric group name, or provide a new name to create a new metric group. A fleet can only be included in one metric group at a time.

    • (string) --
  • PeerVpcAwsAccountId (string) -- A unique identifier for the AWS account with the VPC that you want to peer your Amazon GameLift fleet with. You can find your account ID in the AWS Management Console under account settings.
  • PeerVpcId (string) -- A unique identifier for a VPC with resources to be accessed by your Amazon GameLift fleet. The VPC must be in the same Region as your fleet. To look up a VPC ID, use the VPC Dashboard in the AWS Management Console. Learn more about VPC peering in VPC Peering with Amazon GameLift Fleets .
  • FleetType (string) -- Indicates whether to use On-Demand instances or Spot instances for this fleet. If empty, the default is ON_DEMAND . Both categories of instances use identical hardware and configurations based on the instance type selected for this fleet. Learn more about On-Demand versus Spot Instances .
  • InstanceRoleArn (string) -- A unique identifier for an AWS IAM role that manages access to your AWS services. Fleets with an instance role ARN allow applications that are running on the fleet's instances to assume the role. Learn more about using on-box credentials for your game servers at Access external resources from a game server . To call this operation with instance role ARN, you must have IAM PassRole permissions. See IAM policy examples for GameLift .
  • CertificateConfiguration (dict) --

    Indicates whether to generate a TLS/SSL certificate for the new fleet. TLS certificates are used for encrypting traffic between game clients and game servers running on GameLift. If this parameter is not specified, the default value, DISABLED, is used. This fleet setting cannot be changed once the fleet is created. Learn more at Securing Client/Server Communication .

    Note: This feature requires the AWS Certificate Manager (ACM) service, which is available in the AWS global partition but not in all other partitions. When working in a partition that does not support this feature, a request for a new fleet with certificate generation results fails with a 4xx unsupported Region error.

    Valid values include:

    • GENERATED - Generate a TLS/SSL certificate for this fleet.
    • DISABLED - (default) Do not generate a TLS/SSL certificate for this fleet.
    • CertificateType (string) -- [REQUIRED]

      Indicates whether a TLS/SSL certificate was generated for a fleet.

  • Tags (list) --

    A list of labels to assign to the new fleet resource. Tags are developer-defined key-value pairs. Tagging AWS resources are useful for resource management, access management and cost allocation. For more information, see Tagging AWS Resources in the AWS General Reference . Once the resource is created, you can use TagResource , UntagResource , and ListTagsForResource to add, remove, and view tags. The maximum tag limit may be lower than stated. See the AWS General Reference for actual tagging limits.

    • (dict) --

      A label that can be assigned to a GameLift resource.

create_game_server_group(**kwargs)
This operation is used with the Amazon GameLift FleetIQ solution and game server groups.

Creates a GameLift FleetIQ game server group for managing game hosting on a collection of Amazon EC2 instances for game hosting. This operation creates the game server group, creates an Auto Scaling group in your AWS account, and establishes a link between the two groups. You can view the status of your game server groups in the GameLift console. Game server group metrics and events are emitted to Amazon CloudWatch.

Before creating a new game server group, you must have the following:

  • An Amazon EC2 launch template that specifies how to launch Amazon EC2 instances with your game server build. For more information, see Launching an Instance from a Launch Template in the Amazon EC2 User Guide .
  • An IAM role that extends limited access to your AWS account to allow GameLift FleetIQ to create and interact with the Auto Scaling group. For more information, see Create IAM roles for cross-service interaction in the GameLift FleetIQ Developer Guide .

To create a new game server group, specify a unique group name, IAM role and Amazon EC2 launch template, and provide a list of instance types that can be used in the group. You must also set initial maximum and minimum limits on the group's instance count. You can optionally set an Auto Scaling policy with target tracking based on a GameLift FleetIQ metric.

Once the game server group and corresponding Auto Scaling group are created, you have full access to change the Auto Scaling group's configuration as needed. Several properties that are set when creating a game server group, including maximum/minimum size and auto-scaling policy settings, must be updated directly in the Auto Scaling group. Keep in mind that some Auto Scaling group properties are periodically updated by GameLift FleetIQ as part of its balancing activities to optimize for availability and cost.

Parameters
  • GameServerGroupName (string) --

    [REQUIRED]

    An identifier for the new game server group. This value is used to generate unique ARN identifiers for the EC2 Auto Scaling group and the GameLift FleetIQ game server group. The name must be unique per Region per AWS account.

  • RoleArn (string) --

    [REQUIRED]

    The Amazon Resource Name (ARN ) for an IAM role that allows Amazon GameLift to access your EC2 Auto Scaling groups.

  • MinSize (integer) --

    [REQUIRED]

    The minimum number of instances allowed in the EC2 Auto Scaling group. During automatic scaling events, GameLift FleetIQ and EC2 do not scale down the group below this minimum. In production, this value should be set to at least 1. After the Auto Scaling group is created, update this value directly in the Auto Scaling group using the AWS console or APIs.

  • MaxSize (integer) --

    [REQUIRED]

    The maximum number of instances allowed in the EC2 Auto Scaling group. During automatic scaling events, GameLift FleetIQ and EC2 do not scale up the group above this maximum. After the Auto Scaling group is created, update this value directly in the Auto Scaling group using the AWS console or APIs.

  • LaunchTemplate (dict) --

    [REQUIRED]

    The EC2 launch template that contains configuration settings and game server code to be deployed to all instances in the game server group. You can specify the template using either the template name or ID. For help with creating a launch template, see Creating a Launch Template for an Auto Scaling Group in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide . After the Auto Scaling group is created, update this value directly in the Auto Scaling group using the AWS console or APIs.

    • LaunchTemplateId (string) --

      A unique identifier for an existing EC2 launch template.

    • LaunchTemplateName (string) --

      A readable identifier for an existing EC2 launch template.

    • Version (string) --

      The version of the EC2 launch template to use. If no version is specified, the default version will be used. With Amazon EC2, you can specify a default version for a launch template. If none is set, the default is the first version created.

  • InstanceDefinitions (list) --

    [REQUIRED]

    The EC2 instance types and sizes to use in the Auto Scaling group. The instance definitions must specify at least two different instance types that are supported by GameLift FleetIQ. For more information on instance types, see EC2 Instance Types in the Amazon EC2 User Guide . You can optionally specify capacity weighting for each instance type. If no weight value is specified for an instance type, it is set to the default value "1". For more information about capacity weighting, see Instance Weighting for Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide.

    • (dict) --
      This data type is used with the Amazon GameLift FleetIQ and game server groups.

      An allowed instance type for a GameServerGroup . All game server groups must have at least two instance types defined for it. GameLift FleetIQ periodically evaluates each defined instance type for viability. It then updates the Auto Scaling group with the list of viable instance types.

      • InstanceType (string) -- [REQUIRED]

        An EC2 instance type designation.

      • WeightedCapacity (string) --

        Instance weighting that indicates how much this instance type contributes to the total capacity of a game server group. Instance weights are used by GameLift FleetIQ to calculate the instance type's cost per unit hour and better identify the most cost-effective options. For detailed information on weighting instance capacity, see Instance Weighting in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide . Default value is "1".

  • AutoScalingPolicy (dict) --

    Configuration settings to define a scaling policy for the Auto Scaling group that is optimized for game hosting. The scaling policy uses the metric "PercentUtilizedGameServers" to maintain a buffer of idle game servers that can immediately accommodate new games and players. After the Auto Scaling group is created, update this value directly in the Auto Scaling group using the AWS console or APIs.

    • EstimatedInstanceWarmup (integer) --

      Length of time, in seconds, it takes for a new instance to start new game server processes and register with GameLift FleetIQ. Specifying a warm-up time can be useful, particularly with game servers that take a long time to start up, because it avoids prematurely starting new instances.

    • TargetTrackingConfiguration (dict) -- [REQUIRED]

      Settings for a target-based scaling policy applied to Auto Scaling group. These settings are used to create a target-based policy that tracks the GameLift FleetIQ metric "PercentUtilizedGameServers" and specifies a target value for the metric. As player usage changes, the policy triggers to adjust the game server group capacity so that the metric returns to the target value.

      • TargetValue (float) -- [REQUIRED]

        Desired value to use with a game server group target-based scaling policy.

  • BalancingStrategy (string) --

    Indicates how GameLift FleetIQ balances the use of Spot Instances and On-Demand Instances in the game server group. Method options include the following:

    • SPOT_ONLY - Only Spot Instances are used in the game server group. If Spot Instances are unavailable or not viable for game hosting, the game server group provides no hosting capacity until Spot Instances can again be used. Until then, no new instances are started, and the existing nonviable Spot Instances are terminated (after current gameplay ends) and are not replaced.
    • SPOT_PREFERRED - (default value) Spot Instances are used whenever available in the game server group. If Spot Instances are unavailable, the game server group continues to provide hosting capacity by falling back to On-Demand Instances. Existing nonviable Spot Instances are terminated (after current gameplay ends) and are replaced with new On-Demand Instances.
    • ON_DEMAND_ONLY - Only On-Demand Instances are used in the game server group. No Spot Instances are used, even when available, while this balancing strategy is in force.
  • GameServerProtectionPolicy (string) -- A flag that indicates whether instances in the game server group are protected from early termination. Unprotected instances that have active game servers running might be terminated during a scale-down event, causing players to be dropped from the game. Protected instances cannot be terminated while there are active game servers running except in the event of a forced game server group deletion (see ). An exception to this is with Spot Instances, which can be terminated by AWS regardless of protection status. This property is set to NO_PROTECTION by default.
  • VpcSubnets (list) --

    A list of virtual private cloud (VPC) subnets to use with instances in the game server group. By default, all GameLift FleetIQ-supported Availability Zones are used. You can use this parameter to specify VPCs that you've set up. This property cannot be updated after the game server group is created, and the corresponding Auto Scaling group will always use the property value that is set with this request, even if the Auto Scaling group is updated directly.

    • (string) --
  • Tags (list) --

    A list of labels to assign to the new game server group resource. Tags are developer-defined key-value pairs. Tagging AWS resources is useful for resource management, access management, and cost allocation. For more information, see Tagging AWS Resources in the AWS General Reference . Once the resource is created, you can use TagResource , UntagResource , and ListTagsForResource to add, remove, and view tags, respectively. The maximum tag limit may be lower than stated. See the AWS General Reference for actual tagging limits.

    • (dict) --

      A label that can be assigned to a GameLift resource.

create_game_session(**kwargs)

Creates a multiplayer game session for players. This operation creates a game session record and assigns an available server process in the specified fleet to host the game session. A fleet must have an ACTIVE status before a game session can be created in it.

To create a game session, specify either fleet ID or alias ID and indicate a maximum number of players to allow in the game session. You can also provide a name and game-specific properties for this game session. If successful, a GameSession object is returned containing the game session properties and other settings you specified.

Idempotency tokens. You can add a token that uniquely identifies game session requests. This is useful for ensuring that game session requests are idempotent. Multiple requests with the same idempotency token are processed only once; subsequent requests return the original result. All response values are the same with the exception of game session status, which may change.

Resource creation limits. If you are creating a game session on a fleet with a resource creation limit policy in force, then you must specify a creator ID. Without this ID, Amazon GameLift has no way to evaluate the policy for this new game session request.

Player acceptance policy. By default, newly created game sessions are open to new players. You can restrict new player access by using UpdateGameSession to change the game session's player session creation policy.

Game session logs. Logs are retained for all active game sessions for 14 days. To access the logs, call GetGameSessionLogUrl to download the log files.

create_game_session_queue(**kwargs)

Establishes a new queue for processing requests to place new game sessions. A queue identifies where new game sessions can be hosted -- by specifying a list of destinations (fleets or aliases) -- and how long requests can wait in the queue before timing out. You can set up a queue to try to place game sessions on fleets in multiple Regions. To add placement requests to a queue, call StartGameSessionPlacement and reference the queue name.

Destination order. When processing a request for a game session, Amazon GameLift tries each destination in order until it finds one with available resources to host the new game session. A queue's default order is determined by how destinations are listed. The default order is overridden when a game session placement request provides player latency information. Player latency information enables Amazon GameLift to prioritize destinations where players report the lowest average latency, as a result placing the new game session where the majority of players will have the best possible gameplay experience.

Player latency policies. For placement requests containing player latency information, use player latency policies to protect individual players from very high latencies. With a latency cap, even when a destination can deliver a low latency for most players, the game is not placed where any individual player is reporting latency higher than a policy's maximum. A queue can have multiple latency policies, which are enforced consecutively starting with the policy with the lowest latency cap. Use multiple policies to gradually relax latency controls; for example, you might set a policy with a low latency cap for the first 60 seconds, a second policy with a higher cap for the next 60 seconds, etc.

To create a new queue, provide a name, timeout value, a list of destinations and, if desired, a set of latency policies. If successful, a new queue object is returned.

Parameters
  • Name (string) --

    [REQUIRED]

    A descriptive label that is associated with game session queue. Queue names must be unique within each Region.

  • TimeoutInSeconds (integer) -- The maximum time, in seconds, that a new game session placement request remains in the queue. When a request exceeds this time, the game session placement changes to a TIMED_OUT status.
  • PlayerLatencyPolicies (list) --

    A collection of latency policies to apply when processing game sessions placement requests with player latency information. Multiple policies are evaluated in order of the maximum latency value, starting with the lowest latency values. With just one policy, the policy is enforced at the start of the game session placement for the duration period. With multiple policies, each policy is enforced consecutively for its duration period. For example, a queue might enforce a 60-second policy followed by a 120-second policy, and then no policy for the remainder of the placement. A player latency policy must set a value for MaximumIndividualPlayerLatencyMilliseconds . If none is set, this API request fails.

    • (dict) --

      Queue setting that determines the highest latency allowed for individual players when placing a game session. When a latency policy is in force, a game session cannot be placed with any fleet in a Region where a player reports latency higher than the cap. Latency policies are only enforced when the placement request contains player latency information.

      • CreateGameSessionQueue
      • DescribeGameSessionQueues
      • UpdateGameSessionQueue
      • DeleteGameSessionQueue
      • MaximumIndividualPlayerLatencyMilliseconds (integer) --

        The maximum latency value that is allowed for any player, in milliseconds. All policies must have a value set for this property.

      • PolicyDurationSeconds (integer) --

        The length of time, in seconds, that the policy is enforced while placing a new game session. A null value for this property means that the policy is enforced until the queue times out.

  • Destinations (list) --

    A list of fleets that can be used to fulfill game session placement requests in the queue. Fleets are identified by either a fleet ARN or a fleet alias ARN. Destinations are listed in default preference order.

    • (dict) --

      Fleet designated in a game session queue. Requests for new game sessions in the queue are fulfilled by starting a new game session on any destination that is configured for a queue.

      • DestinationArn (string) --

        The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) that is assigned to fleet or fleet alias. ARNs, which include a fleet ID or alias ID and a Region name, provide a unique identifier across all Regions.

  • Tags (list) --

    A list of labels to assign to the new game session queue resource. Tags are developer-defined key-value pairs. Tagging AWS resources are useful for resource management, access management and cost allocation. For more information, see Tagging AWS Resources in the AWS General Reference . Once the resource is created, you can use TagResource , UntagResource , and ListTagsForResource to add, remove, and view tags. The maximum tag limit may be lower than stated. See the AWS General Reference for actual tagging limits.

create_matchmaking_configuration(**kwargs)

Defines a new matchmaking configuration for use with FlexMatch. Whether your are using FlexMatch with GameLift hosting or as a standalone matchmaking service, the matchmaking configuration sets out rules for matching players and forming teams. If you're also using GameLift hosting, it defines how to start game sessions for each match. Your matchmaking system can use multiple configurations to handle different game scenarios. All matchmaking requests ( StartMatchmaking or StartMatchBackfill ) identify the matchmaking configuration to use and provide player attributes consistent with that configuration.

To create a matchmaking configuration, you must provide the following: configuration name and FlexMatch mode (with or without GameLift hosting); a rule set that specifies how to evaluate players and find acceptable matches; whether player acceptance is required; and the maximum time allowed for a matchmaking attempt. When using FlexMatch with GameLift hosting, you also need to identify the game session queue to use when starting a game session for the match.

In addition, you must set up an Amazon Simple Notification Service (SNS) to receive matchmaking notifications, and provide the topic ARN in the matchmaking configuration. An alternative method, continuously polling ticket status with DescribeMatchmaking , is only suitable for games in development with low matchmaking usage.

Parameters
  • Name (string) --

    [REQUIRED]

    A unique identifier for a matchmaking configuration. This name is used to identify the configuration associated with a matchmaking request or ticket.

  • Description (string) -- A human-readable description of the matchmaking configuration.
  • GameSessionQueueArns (list) --

    Amazon Resource Name (ARN ) that is assigned to a GameLift game session queue resource and uniquely identifies it. ARNs are unique across all Regions. Queues can be located in any Region. Queues are used to start new GameLift-hosted game sessions for matches that are created with this matchmaking configuration. If FlexMatchMode is set to STANDALONE , do not set this parameter.

    • (string) --
  • RequestTimeoutSeconds (integer) --

    [REQUIRED]

    The maximum duration, in seconds, that a matchmaking ticket can remain in process before timing out. Requests that fail due to timing out can be resubmitted as needed.

  • AcceptanceTimeoutSeconds (integer) -- The length of time (in seconds) to wait for players to accept a proposed match, if acceptance is required. If any player rejects the match or fails to accept before the timeout, the tickets are returned to the ticket pool and continue to be evaluated for an acceptable match.
  • AcceptanceRequired (boolean) --

    [REQUIRED]

    A flag that determines whether a match that was created with this configuration must be accepted by the matched players. To require acceptance, set to TRUE . With this option enabled, matchmaking tickets use the status REQUIRES_ACCEPTANCE to indicate when a completed potential match is waiting for player acceptance.

  • RuleSetName (string) --

    [REQUIRED]

    A unique identifier for a matchmaking rule set to use with this configuration. You can use either the rule set name or ARN value. A matchmaking configuration can only use rule sets that are defined in the same Region.

  • NotificationTarget (string) -- An SNS topic ARN that is set up to receive matchmaking notifications.
  • AdditionalPlayerCount (integer) -- The number of player slots in a match to keep open for future players. For example, assume that the configuration's rule set specifies a match for a single 12-person team. If the additional player count is set to 2, only 10 players are initially selected for the match. This parameter is not used if FlexMatchMode is set to STANDALONE .
  • CustomEventData (string) -- Information to be added to all events related to this matchmaking configuration.

create_player_session(**kwargs)

Reserves an open player slot in an active game session. Before a player can be added, a game session must have an ACTIVE status, have a creation policy of ALLOW_ALL , and have an open player slot. To add a group of players to a game session, use CreatePlayerSessions . When the player connects to the game server and references a player session ID, the game server contacts the Amazon GameLift service to validate the player reservation and accept the player.

To create a player session, specify a game session ID, player ID, and optionally a string of player data. If successful, a slot is reserved in the game session for the player and a new PlayerSession object is returned. Player sessions cannot be updated.

create_player_sessions(**kwargs)

Reserves open slots in a game session for a group of players. Before players can be added, a game session must have an ACTIVE status, have a creation policy of ALLOW_ALL , and have an open player slot. To add a single player to a game session, use CreatePlayerSession . When a player connects to the game server and references a player session ID, the game server contacts the Amazon GameLift service to validate the player reservation and accept the player.

To create player sessions, specify a game session ID, a list of player IDs, and optionally a set of player data strings. If successful, a slot is reserved in the game session for each player and a set of new PlayerSession objects is returned. Player sessions cannot be updated.

create_script(**kwargs)

Creates a new script record for your Realtime Servers script. Realtime scripts are JavaScript that provide configuration settings and optional custom game logic for your game. The script is deployed when you create a Realtime Servers fleet to host your game sessions. Script logic is executed during an active game session.

To create a new script record, specify a script name and provide the script file(s). The script files and all dependencies must be zipped into a single file. You can pull the zip file from either of these locations:

  • A locally available directory. Use the ZipFile parameter for this option.
  • An Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) bucket under your AWS account. Use the StorageLocation parameter for this option. You'll need to have an Identity Access Management (IAM) role that allows the Amazon GameLift service to access your S3 bucket.

If the call is successful, a new script record is created with a unique script ID. If the script file is provided as a local file, the file is uploaded to an Amazon GameLift-owned S3 bucket and the script record's storage location reflects this location. If the script file is provided as an S3 bucket, Amazon GameLift accesses the file at this storage location as needed for deployment.

        },
    ]
)
Parameters
  • Name (string) -- A descriptive label that is associated with a script. Script names do not need to be unique. You can use UpdateScript to change this value later.
  • Version (string) -- The version that is associated with a build or script. Version strings do not need to be unique. You can use UpdateScript to change this value later.
  • StorageLocation (dict) --

    The Amazon S3 location of your Realtime scripts. The storage location must specify the S3 bucket name, the zip file name (the "key"), and an IAM role ARN that allows Amazon GameLift to access the S3 storage location. The S3 bucket must be in the same Region where you are creating a new script. By default, Amazon GameLift uploads the latest version of the zip file; if you have S3 object versioning turned on, you can use the ObjectVersion parameter to specify an earlier version. To call this operation with a storage location, you must have IAM PassRole permission. For more details on IAM roles and PassRole permissions, see Set up a role for GameLift access .

    • Bucket (string) --

      An S3 bucket identifier. This is the name of the S3 bucket.

      Note

      GameLift currently does not support uploading from S3 buckets with names that contain a dot (.).

    • Key (string) --

      The name of the zip file that contains the build files or script files.

    • RoleArn (string) --

      The Amazon Resource Name (ARN ) for an IAM role that allows Amazon GameLift to access the S3 bucket.

    • ObjectVersion (string) --

      The version of the file, if object versioning is turned on for the bucket. Amazon GameLift uses this information when retrieving files from an S3 bucket that you own. Use this parameter to specify a specific version of the file. If not set, the latest version of the file is retrieved.

  • ZipFile (bytes) --

    A data object containing your Realtime scripts and dependencies as a zip file. The zip file can have one or multiple files. Maximum size of a zip file is 5 MB.

    When using the AWS CLI tool to create a script, this parameter is set to the zip file name. It must be prepended with the string "fileb://" to indicate that the file data is a binary object. For example: --zip-file fileb://myRealtimeScript.zip .

  • Tags (list) --

    A list of labels to assign to the new script resource. Tags are developer-defined key-value pairs. Tagging AWS resources are useful for resource management, access management and cost allocation. For more information, see Tagging AWS Resources in the AWS General Reference . Once the resource is created, you can use TagResource , UntagResource , and ListTagsForResource to add, remove, and view tags. The maximum tag limit may be lower than stated. See the AWS General Reference for actual tagging limits.

    • (dict) --

      A label that can be assigned to a GameLift resource.

create_vpc_peering_authorization(**kwargs)

Requests authorization to create or delete a peer connection between the VPC for your Amazon GameLift fleet and a virtual private cloud (VPC) in your AWS account. VPC peering enables the game servers on your fleet to communicate directly with other AWS resources. Once you've received authorization, call CreateVpcPeeringConnection to establish the peering connection. For more information, see VPC Peering with Amazon GameLift Fleets .

You can peer with VPCs that are owned by any AWS account you have access to, including the account that you use to manage your Amazon GameLift fleets. You cannot peer with VPCs that are in different Regions.

To request authorization to create a connection, call this operation from the AWS account with the VPC that you want to peer to your Amazon GameLift fleet. For example, to enable your game servers to retrieve data from a DynamoDB table, use the account that manages that DynamoDB resource. Identify the following values: (1) The ID of the VPC that you want to peer with, and (2) the ID of the AWS account that you use to manage Amazon GameLift. If successful, VPC peering is authorized for the specified VPC.

To request authorization to delete a connection, call this operation from the AWS account with the VPC that is peered with your Amazon GameLift fleet. Identify the following values: (1) VPC ID that you want to delete the peering connection for, and (2) ID of the AWS account that you use to manage Amazon GameLift.

The authorization remains valid for 24 hours unless it is canceled by a call to DeleteVpcPeeringAuthorization . You must create or delete the peering connection while the authorization is valid.

create_vpc_peering_connection(**kwargs)

Establishes a VPC peering connection between a virtual private cloud (VPC) in an AWS account with the VPC for your Amazon GameLift fleet. VPC peering enables the game servers on your fleet to communicate directly with other AWS resources. You can peer with VPCs in any AWS account that you have access to, including the account that you use to manage your Amazon GameLift fleets. You cannot peer with VPCs that are in different Regions. For more information, see VPC Peering with Amazon GameLift Fleets .

Before calling this operation to establish the peering connection, you first need to call CreateVpcPeeringAuthorization and identify the VPC you want to peer with. Once the authorization for the specified VPC is issued, you have 24 hours to establish the connection. These two operations handle all tasks necessary to peer the two VPCs, including acceptance, updating routing tables, etc.

To establish the connection, call this operation from the AWS account that is used to manage the Amazon GameLift fleets. Identify the following values: (1) The ID of the fleet you want to be enable a VPC peering connection for; (2) The AWS account with the VPC that you want to peer with; and (3) The ID of the VPC you want to peer with. This operation is asynchronous. If successful, a VpcPeeringConnection request is created. You can use continuous polling to track the request's status using DescribeVpcPeeringConnections , or by monitoring fleet events for success or failure using DescribeFleetEvents .

Request Syntax

response = client.delete_build(
    BuildId='string'
)
Parameters
BuildId (string) --

[REQUIRED]

A unique identifier for a build to delete. You can use either the build ID or ARN value.

Returns
None

Exceptions

  • GameLift.Client.exceptions.UnauthorizedException
  • GameLift.Client.exceptions.NotFoundException

  • GameLift.Client.exceptions.TaggingFailedException
  • GameLift.Client.exceptions.InvalidRequestException
delete_fleet(**kwargs)

Deletes everything related to a fleet. Before deleting a fleet, you must set the fleet's desired capacity to zero. See UpdateFleetCapacity .

If the fleet being deleted has a VPC peering connection, you first need to get a valid authorization (good for 24 hours) by calling CreateVpcPeeringAuthorization . You do not need to explicitly delete the VPC peering connection--this is done as part of the delete fleet process.

This operation removes the fleet and its resources. Once a fleet is deleted, you can no longer use any of the resource in that fleet.

Parameters
FleetId (string) --

[REQUIRED]

delete_game_server_group(**kwargs)
This operation is used with the Amazon GameLift FleetIQ solution and game server groups.

Terminates a game server group and permanently deletes the game server group record. You have several options for how these resources are impacted when deleting the game server group. Depending on the type of delete operation selected, this operation might affect these resources:

  • The game server group
  • The corresponding Auto Scaling group
  • All game servers that are currently running in the group

To delete a game server group, identify the game server group to delete and specify the type of delete operation to initiate. Game server groups can only be deleted if they are in ACTIVE or ERROR status.

If the delete request is successful, a series of operations are kicked off. The game server group status is changed to DELETE_SCHEDULED , which prevents new game servers from being registered and stops automatic scaling activity. Once all game servers in the game server group are deregistered, GameLift FleetIQ can begin deleting resources. If any of the delete operations fail, the game server group is placed in ERROR status.

GameLift FleetIQ emits delete events to Amazon CloudWatch.

Response Structure

  • (dict) --

    • GameServerGroup (dict) --

      An object that describes the deleted game server group resource, with status updated to DELETE_SCHEDULED .

      • GameServerGroupName (string) --

        A developer-defined identifier for the game server group. The name is unique for each Region in each AWS account.

      • GameServerGroupArn (string) --

        A generated unique ID for the game server group.

      • RoleArn (string) --

        The Amazon Resource Name (ARN ) for an IAM role that allows Amazon GameLift to access your EC2 Auto Scaling groups.

      • InstanceDefinitions (list) --

        The set of EC2 instance types that GameLift FleetIQ can use when balancing and automatically scaling instances in the corresponding Auto Scaling group.

        • (dict) --

          This data type is used with the Amazon GameLift FleetIQ and game server groups.

          An allowed instance type for a GameServerGroup . All game server groups must have at least two instance types defined for it. GameLift FleetIQ periodically evaluates each defined instance type for viability. It then updates the Auto Scaling group with the list of viable instance types.

          • InstanceType (string) --

            An EC2 instance type designation.

          • WeightedCapacity (string) --

            Instance weighting that indicates how much this instance type contributes to the total capacity of a game server group. Instance weights are used by GameLift FleetIQ to calculate the instance type's cost per unit hour and better identify the most cost-effective options. For detailed information on weighting instance capacity, see Instance Weighting in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide . Default value is "1".

      • BalancingStrategy (string) --

        Indicates how GameLift FleetIQ balances the use of Spot Instances and On-Demand Instances in the game server group. Method options include the following:

        • SPOT_ONLY - Only Spot Instances are used in the game server group. If Spot Instances are unavailable or not viable for game hosting, the game server group provides no hosting capacity until Spot Instances can again be used. Until then, no new instances are started, and the existing nonviable Spot Instances are terminated (after current gameplay ends) and are not replaced.
        • SPOT_PREFERRED - (default value) Spot Instances are used whenever available in the game server group. If Spot Instances are unavailable, the game server group continues to provide hosting capacity by falling back to On-Demand Instances. Existing nonviable Spot Instances are terminated (after current gameplay ends) and are replaced with new On-Demand Instances.
        • ON_DEMAND_ONLY - Only On-Demand Instances are used in the game server group. No Spot Instances are used, even when available, while this balancing strategy is in force.
      • GameServerProtectionPolicy (string) --

        A flag that indicates whether instances in the game server group are protected from early termination. Unprotected instances that have active game servers running might be terminated during a scale-down event, causing players to be dropped from the game. Protected instances cannot be terminated while there are active game servers running except in the event of a forced game server group deletion (see ). An exception to this is with Spot Instances, which can be terminated by AWS regardless of protection status.

      • AutoScalingGroupArn (string) --

        A generated unique ID for the EC2 Auto Scaling group that is associated with this game server group.

      • Status (string) --

        The current status of the game server group. Possible statuses include:

        • NEW - GameLift FleetIQ has validated the CreateGameServerGroup() request.
        • ACTIVATING - GameLift FleetIQ is setting up a game server group, which includes creating an Auto Scaling group in your AWS account.
        • ACTIVE - The game server group has been successfully created.
        • DELETE_SCHEDULED - A request to delete the game server group has been received.
        • DELETING - GameLift FleetIQ has received a valid DeleteGameServerGroup() request and is processing it. GameLift FleetIQ must first complete and release hosts before it deletes the Auto Scaling group and the game server group.
        • DELETED - The game server group has been successfully deleted.
        • ERROR - The asynchronous processes of activating or deleting a game server group has failed, resulting in an error state.
      • StatusReason (string) --

        Additional information about the current game server group status. This information might provide additional insight on groups that are in ERROR status.

      • SuspendedActions (list) --

        A list of activities that are currently suspended for this game server group. If this property is empty, all activities are occurring.

        • (string) --
      • CreationTime (datetime) --

        A timestamp that indicates when this data object was created. Format is a number expressed in Unix time as milliseconds (for example "1469498468.057" ).

describe_fleet_attributes(**kwargs)

Retrieves core properties, including configuration, status, and metadata, for a fleet.

To get attributes for one or more fleets, provide a list of fleet IDs or fleet ARNs. To get attributes for all fleets, do not specify a fleet identifier. When requesting attributes for multiple fleets, use the pagination parameters to retrieve results as a set of sequential pages. If successful, a FleetAttributes object is returned for each fleet requested, unless the fleet identifier is not found.

Note

Some API operations may limit the number of fleet IDs allowed in one request. If a request exceeds this limit, the request fails and the error message includes the maximum allowed number.

          Fleet creation events (ordered by fleet creation activity):

          • FLEET_CREATED -- A fleet resource was successfully created with a status of NEW . Event messaging includes the fleet ID.
          • FLEET_STATE_DOWNLOADING -- Fleet status changed from NEW to DOWNLOADING . The compressed build has started downloading to a fleet instance for installation.
          • FLEET_BINARY_DOWNLOAD_FAILED -- The build failed to download to the fleet instance.
          • FLEET_CREATION_EXTRACTING_BUILD – The game server build was successfully downloaded to an instance, and the build files are now being extracted from the uploaded build and saved to an instance. Failure at this stage prevents a fleet from moving to ACTIVE status. Logs for this stage display a list of the files that are extracted and saved on the instance. Access the logs by using the URL in PreSignedLogUrl .
          • FLEET_CREATION_RUNNING_INSTALLER – The game server build files were successfully extracted, and the Amazon GameLift is now running the build's install script (if one is included). Failure in this stage prevents a fleet from moving to ACTIVE status. Logs for this stage list the installation steps and whether or not the install completed successfully. Access the logs by using the URL in PreSignedLogUrl .
          • FLEET_CREATION_VALIDATING_RUNTIME_CONFIG -- The build process was successful, and the Amazon GameLift is now verifying that the game server launch paths, which are specified in the fleet's runtime configuration, exist. If any listed launch path exists, Amazon GameLift tries to launch a game server process and waits for the process to report ready. Failures in this stage prevent a fleet from moving to ACTIVE status. Logs for this stage list the launch paths in the runtime configuration and indicate whether each is found. Access the logs by using the URL in PreSignedLogUrl .
          • FLEET_STATE_VALIDATING -- Fleet status changed from DOWNLOADING to VALIDATING .
          • FLEET_VALIDATION_LAUNCH_PATH_NOT_FOUND -- Validation of the runtime configuration failed because the executable specified in a launch path does not exist on the instance.
          • FLEET_STATE_BUILDING -- Fleet status changed from VALIDATING to BUILDING .
          • FLEET_VALIDATION_EXECUTABLE_RUNTIME_FAILURE -- Validation of the runtime configuration failed because the executable specified in a launch path failed to run on the fleet instance.
          • FLEET_STATE_ACTIVATING -- Fleet status changed from BUILDING to ACTIVATING .
          • FLEET_ACTIVATION_FAILED - The fleet failed to successfully complete one of the steps in the fleet activation process. This event code indicates that the game build was successfully downloaded to a fleet instance, built, and validated, but was not able to start a server process. Learn more at Debug Fleet Creation Issues
          • FLEET_STATE_ACTIVE -- The fleet's status changed from ACTIVATING to ACTIVE . The fleet is now ready to host game sessions.

      An object with the property settings for the requested game server group resource.

      • GameServerGroupName (string) --

        A developer-defined identifier for the game server group. The name is unique for each Region in each AWS account.

      • GameServerGroupArn (string) --

        A generated unique ID for the game server group.

      • RoleArn (string) --

        The Amazon Resource Name (ARN ) for an IAM role that allows Amazon GameLift to access your EC2 Auto Scaling groups.

      • InstanceDefinitions (list) --

        The set of EC2 instance types that GameLift FleetIQ can use when balancing and automatically scaling instances in the corresponding Auto Scaling group.

        • (dict) --
          This data type is used with the Amazon GameLift FleetIQ and game server groups.

          An allowed instance type for a GameServerGroup . All game server groups must have at least two instance types defined for it. GameLift FleetIQ periodically evaluates each defined instance type for viability. It then updates the Auto Scaling group with the list of viable instance types.

          • InstanceType (string) --

            An EC2 instance type designation.

          • WeightedCapacity (string) --

            Instance weighting that indicates how much this instance type contributes to the total capacity of a game server group. Instance weights are used by GameLift FleetIQ to calculate the instance type's cost per unit hour and better identify the most cost-effective options. For detailed information on weighting instance capacity, see Instance Weighting in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide . Default value is "1".

      • BalancingStrategy (string) --

        Indicates how GameLift FleetIQ balances the use of Spot Instances and On-Demand Instances in the game server group. Method options include the following:

        • SPOT_ONLY - Only Spot Instances are used in the game server group. If Spot Instances are unavailable or not viable for game hosting, the game server group provides no hosting capacity until Spot Instances can again be used. Until then, no new instances are started, and the existing nonviable Spot Instances are terminated (after current gameplay ends) and are not replaced.
        • SPOT_PREFERRED - (default value) Spot Instances are used whenever available in the game server group. If Spot Instances are unavailable, the game server group continues to provide hosting capacity by falling back to On-Demand Instances. Existing nonviable Spot Instances are terminated (after current gameplay ends) and are replaced with new On-Demand Instances.
        • ON_DEMAND_ONLY - Only On-Demand Instances are used in the game server group. No Spot Instances are used, even when available, while this balancing strategy is in force.
      • GameServerProtectionPolicy (string) --

        A flag that indicates whether instances in the game server group are protected from early termination. Unprotected instances that have active game servers running might be terminated during a scale-down event, causing players to be dropped from the game. Protected instances cannot be terminated while there are active game servers running except in the event of a forced game server group deletion (see ). An exception to this is with Spot Instances, which can be terminated by AWS regardless of protection status.

      • AutoScalingGroupArn (string) --

        A generated unique ID for the EC2 Auto Scaling group that is associated with this game server group.

      • Status (string) --

        The current status of the game server group. Possible statuses include:

        • NEW - GameLift FleetIQ has validated the CreateGameServerGroup() request.
        • ACTIVATING - GameLift FleetIQ is setting up a game server group, which includes creating an Auto Scaling group in your AWS account.
        • ACTIVE - The game server group has been successfully created.
        • DELETE_SCHEDULED - A request to delete the game server group has been received.
        • DELETING - GameLift FleetIQ has received a valid DeleteGameServerGroup() request and is processing it. GameLift FleetIQ must first complete and release hosts before it deletes the Auto Scaling group and the game server group.
        • DELETED - The game server group has been successfully deleted.
        • ERROR - The asynchronous processes of activating or deleting a game server group has failed, resulting in an error state.
      • StatusReason (string) --

        Additional information about the current game server group status. This information might provide additional insight on groups that are in ERROR status.

      • SuspendedActions (list) --

        A list of activities that are currently suspended for this game server group. If this property is empty, all activities are occurring.

        • (string) --
      • CreationTime (datetime) --

        A timestamp that indicates when this data object was created. Format is a number expressed in Unix time as milliseconds (for example "1469498468.057" ).

describe_game_server_instances(**kwargs)
This operation is used with the Amazon GameLift FleetIQ solution and game server groups.

Retrieves status information about the Amazon EC2 instances associated with a GameLift FleetIQ game server group. Use this operation to detect when instances are active or not available to host new game servers. If you are looking for instance configuration information, call DescribeGameServerGroup or access the corresponding Auto Scaling group properties.

To request status for all instances in the game server group, provide a game server group ID only. To request status for specific instances, provide the game server group ID and one or more instance IDs. Use the pagination parameters to retrieve results in sequential segments. If successful, a collection of GameServerInstance objects is returned.

This operation is not designed to be called with every game server claim request; this practice can cause you to exceed your API limit, which results in errors. Instead, as a best practice, cache the results and refresh your cache no more than once every 10 seconds.

Response Structure

  • (dict) --

    Represents the returned data in response to a request operation.

    • GameSessionQueues (list) --

      A collection of objects that describe the requested game session queues.

      • (dict) --

        Configuration of a queue that is used to process game session placement requests. The queue configuration identifies several game features:

        • The destinations where a new game session can potentially be hosted. Amazon GameLift tries these destinations in an order based on either the queue's default order or player latency information, if provided in a placement request. With latency information, Amazon GameLift can place game sessions where the majority of players are reporting the lowest possible latency.
        • The length of time that placement requests can wait in the queue before timing out.
        • A set of optional latency policies that protect individual players from high latencies, preventing game sessions from being placed where any individual player is reporting latency higher than a policy's maximum.

        • DescribeGameSessionQueues
        • UpdateGameSessionQueue
        • DeleteGameSessionQueue
        • Name (string) --

          A descriptive label that is associated with game session queue. Queue names must be unique within each Region.

        • GameSessionQueueArn (string) --

          Amazon Resource Name (ARN ) that is assigned to a GameLift game session queue resource and uniquely identifies it. ARNs are unique across all Regions. In a GameLift game session queue ARN, the resource ID matches the Name value.

        • TimeoutInSeconds (integer) --

          The maximum time, in seconds, that a new game session placement request remains in the queue. When a request exceeds this time, the game session placement changes to a TIMED_OUT status.

        • PlayerLatencyPolicies (list) --

          A collection of latency policies to apply when processing game sessions placement requests with player latency information. Multiple policies are evaluated in order of the maximum latency value, starting with the lowest latency values. With just one policy, the policy is enforced at the start of the game session placement for the duration period. With multiple policies, each policy is enforced consecutively for its duration period. For example, a queue might enforce a 60-second policy followed by a 120-second policy, and then no policy for the remainder of the placement.

          • (dict) --

            Queue setting that determines the highest latency allowed for individual players when placing a game session. When a latency policy is in force, a game session cannot be placed with any fleet in a Region where a player reports latency higher than the cap. Latency policies are only enforced when the placement request contains player latency information.

            • MaximumIndividualPlayerLatencyMilliseconds (integer) --

              The maximum latency value that is allowed for any player, in milliseconds. All policies must have a value set for this property.

            • PolicyDurationSeconds (integer) --

              The length of time, in seconds, that the policy is enforced while placing a new game session. A null value for this property means that the policy is enforced until the queue times out.

        • Destinations (list) --

          A list of fleets that can be used to fulfill game session placement requests in the queue. Fleets are identified by either a fleet ARN or a fleet alias ARN. Destinations are listed in default preference order.

          • (dict) --

            Fleet designated in a game session queue. Requests for new game sessions in the queue are fulfilled by starting a new game session on any destination that is configured for a queue.

              The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) that is assigned to fleet or fleet alias. ARNs, which include a fleet ID or alias ID and a Region name, provide a unique identifier across all Regions.

    • NextToken (string) --

      A token that indicates where to resume retrieving results on the next call to this operation. If no token is returned, these results represent the end of the list.

describe_matchmaking(**kwargs)

Retrieves one or more matchmaking tickets. Use this operation to retrieve ticket information, including--after a successful match is made--connection information for the resulting new game session.

To request matchmaking tickets, provide a list of up to 10 ticket IDs. If the request is successful, a ticket object is returned for each requested ID that currently exists.

This operation is not designed to be continually called to track matchmaking ticket status. This practice can cause you to exceed your API limit, which results in errors. Instead, as a best practice, set up an Amazon Simple Notification Service (SNS) to receive notifications, and provide the topic ARN in the matchmaking configuration. Continuously poling ticket status with DescribeMatchmaking should only be used for games in development with low matchmaking usage.

If the ticket is in status COMPLETED , the Player objects include the team the players were assigned to in the resulting match.

          • (dict) --

            Represents a player in matchmaking. When starting a matchmaking request, a player has a player ID, attributes, and may have latency data. Team information is added after a match has been successfully completed.

                  • SL (list) --

                    For a list of up to 10 strings. Maximum length for each string is 100 characters. Duplicate values are not recognized; all occurrences of the repeated value after the first of a repeated value are ignored.

                    • (string) --
                  • SDM (dict) --

                    For a map of up to 10 data type:value pairs. Maximum length for each string value is 100 characters.

            • LatencyInMs (dict) --

              Set of values, expressed in milliseconds, indicating the amount of latency that a player experiences when connected to AWS Regions. If this property is present, FlexMatch considers placing the match only in Regions for which latency is reported.

              If a matchmaker has a rule that evaluates player latency, players must report latency in order to be matched. If no latency is reported in this scenario, FlexMatch assumes that no Regions are available to the player and the ticket is not matchable.

              • (string) --
                • (integer) --
        • GameSessionConnectionInfo (dict) --

          Identifier and connection information of the game session created for the match. This information is added to the ticket only after the matchmaking request has been successfully completed. This parameter is not set when FlexMatch is being used without GameLift hosting.

          • GameSessionArn (string) --

            Amazon Resource Name (ARN ) that is assigned to a game session and uniquely identifies it.

          • IpAddress (string) --

            IP address of the instance that is running the game session. When connecting to a Amazon GameLift game server, a client needs to reference an IP address (or DNS name) and port number.

          • DnsName (string) --

            DNS identifier assigned to the instance that is running the game session. Values have the following format:

            • Non-TLS-enabled fleets: ec2-<unique identifier>.compute.amazonaws.com . (See Amazon EC2 Instance IP Addressing .)

            When connecting to a game session that is running on a TLS-enabled fleet, you must use the DNS name, not the IP address.

          • Port (integer) --

            Port number for the game session. To connect to a Amazon GameLift game server, an app needs both the IP address and port number.

          • MatchedPlayerSessions (list) --

            A collection of player session IDs, one for each player ID that was included in the original matchmaking request.

            • (dict) --

              Represents a new player session that is created as a result of a successful FlexMatch match. A successful match automatically creates new player sessions for every player ID in the original matchmaking request.

              When players connect to the match's game session, they must include both player ID and player session ID in order to claim their assigned player slot.

              • PlayerId (string) --

                A unique identifier for a player

              • PlayerSessionId (string) --

Response Structure

  • (dict) --

    Represents the returned data in response to a request operation.

    • RuleSets (list) --

      A collection of requested matchmaking rule set objects.

      • (dict) --

        Set of rule statements, used with FlexMatch, that determine how to build your player matches. Each rule set describes a type of group to be created and defines the parameters for acceptable player matches. Rule sets are used in MatchmakingConfiguration objects.

        A rule set may define the following elements for a match. For detailed information and examples showing how to construct a rule set, see Build a FlexMatch Rule Set .

        • Teams -- Required. A rule set must define one or multiple teams for the match and set minimum and maximum team sizes. For example, a rule set might describe a 4x4 match that requires all eight slots to be filled.
        • Player attributes -- Optional. These attributes specify a set of player characteristics to evaluate when looking for a match. Matchmaking requests that use a rule set with player attributes must provide the corresponding attribute values. For example, an attribute might specify a player's skill or level.
        • Rules -- Optional. Rules define how to evaluate potential players for a match based on player attributes. A rule might specify minimum requirements for individual players, teams, or entire matches. For example, a rule might require each player to meet a certain skill level, each team to have at least one player in a certain role, or the match to have a minimum average skill level. or may describe an entire group--such as all teams must be evenly matched or have at least one player in a certain role.
        • Expansions -- Optional. Expansions allow you to relax the rules after a period of time when no acceptable matches are found. This feature lets you balance getting players into games in a reasonable amount of time instead of making them wait indefinitely for the best possible match. For example, you might use an expansion to increase the maximum skill variance between players after 30 seconds.
        • RuleSetName (string) --

          A unique identifier for a matchmaking rule set

        • RuleSetArn (string) --

          Amazon Resource Name (ARN ) that is assigned to a GameLift matchmaking rule set resource and uniquely identifies it. ARNs are unique across all Regions. In a GameLift rule set ARN, the resource ID matches the RuleSetName value.

        • RuleSetBody (string) --

          A collection of matchmaking rules, formatted as a JSON string. Comments are not allowed in JSON, but most elements support a description field.

        • CreationTime (datetime) --

          The time stamp indicating when this data object was created. The format is a number expressed in Unix time as milliseconds (for example "1469498468.057").

    • NextToken (string) --

      A token that indicates where to resume retrieving results on the next call to this operation. If no token is returned, these results represent the end of the list.

Response Structure

  • (dict) --

    Represents the returned data in response to a request operation.

    • PlayerSessions (list) --

      A collection of objects containing properties for each player session that matches the request.

      • (dict) --

        Properties describing a player session. Player session objects are created either by creating a player session for a specific game session, or as part of a game session placement. A player session represents either a player reservation for a game session (status RESERVED ) or actual player activity in a game session (status ACTIVE ). A player session object (including player data) is automatically passed to a game session when the player connects to the game session and is validated.

        When a player disconnects, the player session status changes to COMPLETED . Once the session ends, the player session object is retained for 30 days and then removed.

        • PlayerId (string) --

          A unique identifier for a player that is associated with this player session.

        • GameSessionId (string) --

          A unique identifier for the game session that the player session is connected to.

        • FleetId (string) --

          A unique identifier for a fleet that the player's game session is running on.

        • FleetArn (string) --

          The Amazon Resource Name (ARN ) associated with the GameLift fleet that the player's game session is running on.

        • CreationTime (datetime) --

          Time stamp indicating when this data object was created. Format is a number expressed in Unix time as milliseconds (for example "1469498468.057").

        • TerminationTime (datetime) --

          Time stamp indicating when this data object was terminated. Format is a number expressed in Unix time as milliseconds (for example "1469498468.057").

        • Status (string) --

          Current status of the player session.

          Possible player session statuses include the following:

          • RESERVED -- The player session request has been received, but the player has not yet connected to the server process and/or been validated.
          • ACTIVE -- The player has been validated by the server process and is currently connected.
          • COMPLETED -- The player connection has been dropped.
          • TIMEDOUT -- A player session request was received, but the player did not connect and/or was not validated within the timeout limit (60 seconds).
        • IpAddress (string) --

          IP address of the instance that is running the game session. When connecting to a Amazon GameLift game server, a client needs to reference an IP address (or DNS name) and port number.

        • DnsName (string) --

          DNS identifier assigned to the instance that is running the game session. Values have the following format:

          • TLS-enabled fleets: <unique identifier>.<region identifier>.amazongamelift.com .
          • Non-TLS-enabled fleets: ec2-<unique identifier>.compute.amazonaws.com . (See Amazon EC2 Instance IP Addressing .)

          When connecting to a game session that is running on a TLS-enabled fleet, you must use the DNS name, not the IP address.

        • Port (integer) --

          Port number for the game session. To connect to a Amazon GameLift server process, an app needs both the IP address and port number.

        • PlayerData (string) --

          Developer-defined information related to a player. Amazon GameLift does not use this data, so it can be formatted as needed for use in the game.

    • NextToken (string) --

      Token that indicates where to resume retrieving results on the next call to this operation. If no token is returned, these results represent the end of the list.

get_instance_access(**kwargs)

Requests remote access to a fleet instance. Remote access is useful for debugging, gathering benchmarking data, or observing activity in real time.

To remotely access an instance, you need credentials that match the operating system of the instance. For a Windows instance, Amazon GameLift returns a user name and password as strings for use with a Windows Remote Desktop client. For a Linux instance, Amazon GameLift returns a user name and RSA private key, also as strings, for use with an SSH client. The private key must be saved in the proper format to a .pem file before using. If you're making this request using the AWS CLI, saving the secret can be handled as part of the GetInstanceAccess request, as shown in one of the examples for this operation.

To request access to a specific instance, specify the IDs of both the instance and the fleet it belongs to. You can retrieve a fleet's instance IDs by calling DescribeInstances . If successful, an InstanceAccess object is returned that contains the instance's IP address and a set of credentials.

Until then, no new instances are started, and the existing nonviable Spot Instances are terminated (after current gameplay ends) and are not replaced.
          • SPOT_PREFERRED - (default value) Spot Instances are used whenever available in the game server group. If Spot Instances are unavailable, the game server group continues to provide hosting capacity by falling back to On-Demand Instances. Existing nonviable Spot Instances are terminated (after current gameplay ends) and are replaced with new On-Demand Instances.
          • ON_DEMAND_ONLY - Only On-Demand Instances are used in the game server group. No Spot Instances are used, even when available, while this balancing strategy is in force.
        • GameServerProtectionPolicy (string) --

          A flag that indicates whether instances in the game server group are protected from early termination. Unprotected instances that have active game servers running might be terminated during a scale-down event, causing players to be dropped from the game. Protected instances cannot be terminated while there are active game servers running except in the event of a forced game server group deletion (see ). An exception to this is with Spot Instances, which can be terminated by AWS regardless of protection status.

        • AutoScalingGroupArn (string) --

          A generated unique ID for the EC2 Auto Scaling group that is associated with this game server group.

        • Status (string) --

          The current status of the game server group. Possible statuses include:

          • NEW - GameLift FleetIQ has validated the CreateGameServerGroup() request.
          • ACTIVATING - GameLift FleetIQ is setting up a game server group, which includes creating an Auto Scaling group in your AWS account.
          • ACTIVE - The game server group has been successfully created.
          • DELETE_SCHEDULED - A request to delete the game server group has been received.
          • DELETING - GameLift FleetIQ has received a valid DeleteGameServerGroup() request and is processing it. GameLift FleetIQ must first complete and release hosts before it deletes the Auto Scaling group and the game server group.
          • DELETED - The game server group has been successfully deleted.
          • ERROR - The asynchronous processes of activating or deleting a game server group has failed, resulting in an error state.
        • StatusReason (string) --

          Additional information about the current game server group status. This information might provide additional insight on groups that are in ERROR status.

        • SuspendedActions (list) --

          A list of activities that are currently suspended for this game server group. If this property is empty, all activities are occurring.

          • (string) --
        • CreationTime (datetime) --

          A timestamp that indicates when this data object was created. Format is a number expressed in Unix time as milliseconds (for example "1469498468.057" ).

        • LastUpdatedTime (datetime) --

          A timestamp that indicates when this game server group was last updated.

    • NextToken (string) --

      A token that indicates where to resume retrieving results on the next call to this operation. If no token is returned, these results represent the end of the list.

put_scaling_policy(**kwargs)

Creates or updates a scaling policy for a fleet. Scaling policies are used to automatically scale a fleet's hosting capacity to meet player demand. An active scaling policy instructs Amazon GameLift to track a fleet metric and automatically change the fleet's capacity when a certain threshold is reached. There are two types of scaling policies: target-based and rule-based. Use a target-based policy to quickly and efficiently manage fleet scaling; this option is the most commonly used. Use rule-based policies when you need to exert fine-grained control over auto-scaling.

Fleets can have multiple scaling policies of each type in force at the same time; you can have one target-based policy, one or multiple rule-based scaling policies, or both. We recommend caution, however, because multiple auto-scaling policies can have unintended consequences.

You can temporarily suspend all scaling policies for a fleet by calling StopFleetActions with the fleet action AUTO_SCALING. To resume scaling policies, call StartFleetActions with the same fleet action. To stop just one scaling policy--or to permanently remove it, you must delete the policy with DeleteScalingPolicy .

Learn more about how to work with auto-scaling in Set Up Fleet Automatic Scaling .

Target-based policy

A target-based policy tracks a single metric: PercentAvailableGameSessions. This metric tells us how much of a fleet's hosting capacity is ready to host game sessions but is not currently in use. This is the fleet's buffer; it measures the additional player demand that the fleet could handle at current capacity. With a target-based policy, you set your ideal buffer size and leave it to Amazon GameLift to take whatever action is needed to maintain that target.

For example, you might choose to maintain a 10% buffer for a fleet that has the capacity to host 100 simultaneous game sessions. This policy tells Amazon GameLift to take action whenever the fleet's available capacity falls below or rises above 10 game sessions. Amazon GameLift will start new instances or stop unused instances in order to return to the 10% buffer.

To create or update a target-based policy, specify a fleet ID and name, and set the policy type to "TargetBased". Specify the metric to track (PercentAvailableGameSessions) and reference a TargetConfiguration object with your desired buffer value. Exclude all other parameters. On a successful request, the policy name is returned. The scaling policy is automatically in force as soon as it's successfully created. If the fleet's auto-scaling actions are temporarily suspended, the new policy will be in force once the fleet actions are restarted.

Rule-based policy

A rule-based policy tracks specified fleet metric, sets a threshold value, and specifies the type of action to initiate when triggered. With a rule-based policy, you can select from several available fleet metrics. Each policy specifies whether to scale up or scale down (and by how much), so you need one policy for each type of action.

For example, a policy may make the following statement: "If the percentage of idle instances is greater than 20% for more than 15 minutes, then reduce the fleet capacity by 10%."

A policy's rule statement has the following structure:

If [MetricName] is [ComparisonOperator] [Threshold] for [EvaluationPeriods] minutes, then [ScalingAdjustmentType] to/by [ScalingAdjustment] .

To implement the example, the rule statement would look like this:

If [PercentIdleInstances] is [GreaterThanThreshold] [20] for [15] minutes, then [PercentChangeInCapacity] to/by [10] .

To create or update a scaling policy, specify a unique combination of name and fleet ID, and set the policy type to "RuleBased". Specify the parameter values for a policy rule statement. On a successful request, the policy name is returned. Scaling policies are automatically in force as soon as they're successfully created. If the fleet's auto-scaling actions are temporarily suspended, the new policy will be in force once the fleet actions are restarted.

Parameters
  • Name (string) --

    [REQUIRED]

    A descriptive label that is associated with a scaling policy. Policy names do not need to be unique. A fleet can have only one scaling policy with the same name.

  • FleetId (string) --

    [REQUIRED]

    A unique identifier for a fleet to apply this policy to. You can use either the fleet ID or ARN value. The fleet cannot be in any of the following statuses: ERROR or DELETING.

  • ScalingAdjustment (integer) -- Amount of adjustment to make, based on the scaling adjustment type.
  • ScalingAdjustmentType (string) --

    The type of adjustment to make to a fleet's instance count (see FleetCapacity ):

    • ChangeInCapacity -- add (or subtract) the scaling adjustment value from the current instance count. Positive values scale up while negative values scale down.
    • ExactCapacity -- set the instance count to the scaling adjustment value.
    • PercentChangeInCapacity -- increase or reduce the current instance count by the scaling adjustment, read as a percentage. Positive values scale up while negative values scale down; for example, a value of "-10" scales the fleet down by 10%.

register_game_server(**kwargs)
This operation is used with the Amazon GameLift FleetIQ solution and game server groups.

Creates a new game server resource and notifies GameLift FleetIQ that the game server is ready to host gameplay and players. This operation is called by a game server process that is running on an instance in a game server group. Registering game servers enables GameLift FleetIQ to track available game servers and enables game clients and services to claim a game server for a new game session.

To register a game server, identify the game server group and instance where the game server is running, and provide a unique identifier for the game server. You can also include connection and game server data. When a game client or service requests a game server by calling ClaimGameServer , this information is returned in the response.

Once a game server is successfully registered, it is put in status AVAILABLE . A request to register a game server may fail if the instance it is running on is in the process of shutting down as part of instance balancing or scale-down activity.

Response Structure

  • (dict) --

    • GameServer (dict) --

      Object that describes the newly registered game server.

      • GameServerGroupName (string) --

        A unique identifier for the game server group where the game server is running. Use either the GameServerGroup name or ARN value.

      • GameServerGroupArn (string) --

        The ARN identifier for the game server group where the game server is located.

      • GameServerId (string) --

        A custom string that uniquely identifies the game server. Game server IDs are developer-defined and are unique across all game server groups in an AWS account.

      • InstanceId (string) --

        The unique identifier for the instance where the game server is running. This ID is available in the instance metadata. EC2 instance IDs use a 17-character format, for example: i-1234567890abcdef0 .

      • ConnectionInfo (string) --

        The port and IP address that must be used to establish a client connection to the game server.

      • GameServerData (string) --

        A set of custom game server properties, formatted as a single string value. This data is passed to a game client or service when it requests information on game servers using ListGameServers or ClaimGameServer .

      • ClaimStatus (string) --

        Indicates when an available game server has been reserved for gameplay but has not yet started hosting a game. Once it is claimed, the game server remains in CLAIMED status for a maximum of one minute. During this time, game clients connect to the game server to start the game and trigger the game server to update its utilization status. After one minute, the game server claim status reverts to null.

      • UtilizationStatus (string) --

        Indicates whether the game server is currently available for new games or is busy. Possible statuses include:

        • AVAILABLE - The game server is available to be claimed. A game server that has been claimed remains in this status until it reports game hosting activity.
        • UTILIZED - The game server is currently hosting a game session with players.
      • RegistrationTime (datetime) --

        Timestamp that indicates when the game server was created with a RegisterGameServer request. The format is a number expressed in Unix time as milliseconds (for example "1469498468.057" ).

      • LastClaimTime (datetime) --

        Timestamp that indicates the last time the game server was claimed with a ClaimGameServer request. The format is a number expressed in Unix time as milliseconds (for example "1469498468.057" ). This value is used to calculate when a claimed game server's status should revert to null.

      • LastHealthCheckTime (datetime) --

        Timestamp that indicates the last time the game server was updated with health status using an UpdateGameServer request. The format is a number expressed in Unix time as milliseconds (for example "1469498468.057" ). After game server registration, this property is only changed when a game server update specifies a health check value.

Response Structure

  • (dict) --

    • GameServerGroup (dict) --

      An object that describes the game server group resource, with the SuspendedActions property updated to reflect the resumed activity.

      • GameServerGroupName (string) --

        A developer-defined identifier for the game server group. The name is unique for each Region in each AWS account.

      • GameServerGroupArn (string) --

        A generated unique ID for the game server group.

      • RoleArn (string) --

        The Amazon Resource Name (ARN ) for an IAM role that allows Amazon GameLift to access your EC2 Auto Scaling groups.

      • InstanceDefinitions (list) --

        The set of EC2 instance types that GameLift FleetIQ can use when balancing and automatically scaling instances in the corresponding Auto Scaling group.

        • (dict) --

          This data type is used with the Amazon GameLift FleetIQ and game server groups.

          An allowed instance type for a GameServerGroup . All game server groups must have at least two instance types defined for it. GameLift FleetIQ periodically evaluates each defined instance type for viability. It then updates the Auto Scaling group with the list of viable instance types.

          • InstanceType (string) --

            An EC2 instance type designation.

          • WeightedCapacity (string) --

            Instance weighting that indicates how much this instance type contributes to the total capacity of a game server group. Instance weights are used by GameLift FleetIQ to calculate the instance type's cost per unit hour and better identify the most cost-effective options. For detailed information on weighting instance capacity, see Instance Weighting in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide . Default value is "1".

      • BalancingStrategy (string) --

        Indicates how GameLift FleetIQ balances the use of Spot Instances and On-Demand Instances in the game server group. Method options include the following:

        • SPOT_ONLY - Only Spot Instances are used in the game server group. If Spot Instances are unavailable or not viable for game hosting, the game server group provides no hosting capacity until Spot Instances can again be used. Until then, no new instances are started, and the existing nonviable Spot Instances are terminated (after current gameplay ends) and are not replaced.
        • SPOT_PREFERRED - (default value) Spot Instances are used whenever available in the game server group. If Spot Instances are unavailable, the game server group continues to provide hosting capacity by falling back to On-Demand Instances. Existing nonviable Spot Instances are terminated (after current gameplay ends) and are replaced with new On-Demand Instances.
        • ON_DEMAND_ONLY - Only On-Demand Instances are used in the game server group. No Spot Instances are used, even when available, while this balancing strategy is in force.
      • GameServerProtectionPolicy (string) --

        A flag that indicates whether instances in the game server group are protected from early termination. Unprotected instances that have active game servers running might be terminated during a scale-down event, causing players to be dropped from the game. Protected instances cannot be terminated while there are active game servers running except in the event of a forced game server group deletion (see ). An exception to this is with Spot Instances, which can be terminated by AWS regardless of protection status.

      • AutoScalingGroupArn (string) --

        A generated unique ID for the EC2 Auto Scaling group that is associated with this game server group.

      • Status (string) --

        The current status of the game server group. Possible statuses include:

        • NEW - GameLift FleetIQ has validated the CreateGameServerGroup() request.
        • ACTIVATING - GameLift FleetIQ is setting up a game server group, which includes creating an Auto Scaling group in your AWS account.
        • ACTIVE - The game server group has been successfully created.
        • DELETE_SCHEDULED - A request to delete the game server group has been received.
        • DELETING - GameLift FleetIQ has received a valid DeleteGameServerGroup() request and is processing it. GameLift FleetIQ must first complete and release hosts before it deletes the Auto Scaling group and the game server group.
        • DELETED - The game server group has been successfully deleted.
        • ERROR - The asynchronous processes of activating or deleting a game server group has failed, resulting in an error state.
      • StatusReason (string) --

        Additional information about the current game server group status. This information might provide additional insight on groups that are in ERROR status.

      • SuspendedActions (list) --

        A list of activities that are currently suspended for this game server group. If this property is empty, all activities are occurring.

        • (string) --
      • CreationTime (datetime) --

        A timestamp that indicates when this data object was created. Format is a number expressed in Unix time as milliseconds (for example "1469498468.057" ).

      • LastUpdatedTime (datetime) --

        A timestamp that indicates when this game server group was last updated.

search_game_sessions(**kwargs)

Retrieves all active game sessions that match a set of search criteria and sorts them in a specified order. You can search or sort by the following game session attributes:

  • gameSessionId -- A unique identifier for the game session. You can use either a GameSessionId or GameSessionArn value.
  • gameSessionName -- Name assigned to a game session. This value is set when requesting a new game session with CreateGameSession or updating with UpdateGameSession . Game session names do not need to be unique to a game session.
  • gameSessionProperties -- Custom data defined in a game session's GameProperty parameter. GameProperty values are stored as key:value pairs; the filter expression must indicate the key and a string to search the data values for. For example, to search for game sessions with custom data containing the key:value pair "gameMode:brawl", specify the following: gameSessionProperties.gameMode = "brawl" . All custom data values are searched as strings.
  • maximumSessions -- Maximum number of player sessions allowed for a game session. This value is set when requesting a new game session with CreateGameSession or updating with UpdateGameSession .
  • creationTimeMillis -- Value indicating when a game session was created. It is expressed in Unix time as milliseconds.
  • playerSessionCount -- Number of players currently connected to a game session. This value changes rapidly as players join the session or drop out.
  • hasAvailablePlayerSessions -- Boolean value indicating whether a game session has reached its maximum number of players. It is highly recommended that all search requests include this filter attribute to optimize search performance and return only sessions that players can join.

Note

Returned values for playerSessionCount and hasAvailablePlayerSessions change quickly as players join sessions and others drop out. Results should be considered a snapshot in time. Be sure to refresh search results often, and handle sessions that fill up before a player can join.

To search or sort, specify either a fleet ID or an alias ID, and provide a search filter expression, a sort expression, or both. If successful, a collection of GameSession objects matching the request is returned. Use the pagination parameters to retrieve results as a set of sequential pages.

You can search for game sessions one fleet at a time only. To find game sessions across multiple fleets, you must search each fleet separately and combine the results. This search feature finds only game sessions that are in ACTIVE status. To locate games in statuses other than active, use DescribeGameSessionDetails .

response = client.search_game_sessions(
    FleetId='string',
    AliasId='string',
    FilterExpression='string',
    SortExpression='string',
    Limit=123,
    NextToken='string'
)
Parameters
  • FleetId (string) -- A unique identifier for a fleet to search for active game sessions. You can use either the fleet ID or ARN value. Each request must reference either a fleet ID or alias ID, but not both.
  • AliasId (string) -- A unique identifier for an alias associated with the fleet to search for active game sessions. You can use either the alias ID or ARN value. Each request must reference either a fleet ID or alias ID, but not both.
  • FilterExpression (string) --

    String containing the search criteria for the session search. If no filter expression is included, the request returns results for all game sessions in the fleet that are in ACTIVE status.

    A filter expression can contain one or multiple conditions. Each condition consists of the following:

    • Operand -- Name of a game session attribute. Valid values are gameSessionName , gameSessionId , gameSessionProperties , maximumSessions , creationTimeMillis , playerSessionCount , hasAvailablePlayerSessions .
    • Comparator -- Valid comparators are: = , <> , < , > , <= , >= .
    • Value -- Value to be searched for. Values may be numbers, boolean values (true/false) or strings depending on the operand. String values are case sensitive and must be enclosed in single quotes. Special characters must be escaped. Boolean and string values can only be used with the comparators = and <> . For example, the following filter expression searches on gameSessionName : "FilterExpression": "gameSessionName = 'Matt\\'s Awesome Game 1'" .

    To chain multiple conditions in a single expression, use the logical keywords AND , OR , and NOT and parentheses as needed. For example: x AND y AND NOT z , NOT (x OR y) .

    Session search evaluates conditions from left to right using the following precedence rules:

    • = , <> , < , > , <= , >=
    • Parentheses
    • NOT
    • AND
    • OR

    For example, this filter expression retrieves game sessions hosting at least ten players that have an open player slot: "maximumSessions>=10 AND hasAvailablePlayerSessions=true" .

  • SortExpression (string) --

    Instructions on how to sort the search results. If no sort expression is included, the request returns results in random order. A sort expression consists of the following elements:

    • Operand -- Name of a game session attribute. Valid values are gameSessionName , gameSessionId , gameSessionProperties , maximumSessions , creationTimeMillis , playerSessionCount , hasAvailablePlayerSessions .
    • Order -- Valid sort orders are ASC (ascending) and DESC (descending).

    For example, this sort expression returns the oldest active sessions first: "SortExpression": "creationTimeMillis ASC" . Results with a null value for the sort operand are returned at the end of the list.

  • Limit (integer) -- The maximum number of results to return. Use this parameter with NextToken to get results as a set of sequential pages. The maximum number of results returned is 20, even if this value is not set or is set higher than 20.
  • NextToken (string) -- Token that indicates the start of the next sequential page of results. Use the token that is returned with a previous call to this operation. To start at the beginning of the result set, do not specify a value.

          • TLS-enabled fleets: <unique identifier>.<region identifier>.amazongamelift.com .
          • Non-TLS-enabled fleets: ec2-<unique identifier>.compute.amazonaws.com . (See Amazon EC2 Instance IP Addressing .)

          When connecting to a game session that is running on a TLS-enabled fleet, you must use the DNS name, not the IP address.

        • Port (integer) --

          Port number for the game session. To connect to a Amazon GameLift game server, an app needs both the IP address and port number.

        • PlayerSessionCreationPolicy (string) --

          Indicates whether or not the game session is accepting new players.

        • CreatorId (string) --

          A unique identifier for a player. This ID is used to enforce a resource protection policy (if one exists), that limits the number of game sessions a player can create.

        • GameSessionData (string) --

          Set of custom game session properties, formatted as a single string value. This data is passed to a game server process in the GameSession object with a request to start a new game session (see Start a Game Session ).

        • MatchmakerData (string) --

          Information about the matchmaking process that was used to create the game session. It is in JSON syntax, formatted as a string. In addition the matchmaking configuration used, it contains data on all players assigned to the match, including player attributes and team assignments. For more details on matchmaker data, see Match Data . Matchmaker data is useful when requesting match backfills, and is updated whenever new players are added during a successful backfill (see StartMatchBackfill ).

    • NextToken (string) --

      Token that indicates where to resume retrieving results on the next call to this operation. If no token is returned, these results represent the end of the list.

start_fleet_actions(**kwargs)

Resumes activity on a fleet that was suspended with StopFleetActions . Currently, this operation is used to restart a fleet's auto-scaling activity.

To start fleet actions, specify the fleet ID and the type of actions to restart. When auto-scaling fleet actions are restarted, Amazon GameLift once again initiates scaling events as triggered by the fleet's scaling policies. If actions on the fleet were never stopped, this operation will have no effect. You can view a fleet's stopped actions using DescribeFleetAttributes .

start_game_session_placement(**kwargs)

Places a request for a new game session in a queue (see CreateGameSessionQueue ). When processing a placement request, Amazon GameLift searches for available resources on the queue's destinations, scanning each until it finds resources or the placement request times out.

A game session placement request can also request player sessions. When a new game session is successfully created, Amazon GameLift creates a player session for each player included in the request.

When placing a game session, by default Amazon GameLift tries each fleet in the order they are listed in the queue configuration. Ideally, a queue's destinations are listed in preference order.

Alternatively, when requesting a game session with players, you can also provide latency data for each player in relevant Regions. Latency data indicates the performance lag a player experiences when connected to a fleet in the Region. Amazon GameLift uses latency data to reorder the list of destinations to place the game session in a Region with minimal lag. If latency data is provided for multiple players, Amazon GameLift calculates each Region's average lag for all players and reorders to get the best game play across all players.

To place a new game session request, specify the following:

  • The queue name and a set of game session properties and settings
  • A unique ID (such as a UUID) for the placement. You use this ID to track the status of the placement request
  • (Optional) A set of player data and a unique player ID for each player that you are joining to the new game session (player data is optional, but if you include it, you must also provide a unique ID for each player)
  • Latency data for all players (if you want to optimize game play for the players)

If successful, a new game session placement is created.

To track the status of a placement request, call DescribeGameSessionPlacement and check the request's status. If the status is FULFILLED , a new game session has been created and a game session ARN and Region are referenced. If the placement request times out, you can resubmit the request or retry it with a different queue.

start_match_backfill(**kwargs)

Finds new players to fill open slots in an existing game session. This operation can be used to add players to matched games that start with fewer than the maximum number of players or to replace players when they drop out. By backfilling with the same matchmaker used to create the original match, you ensure that new players meet the match criteria and maintain a consistent experience throughout the game session. You can backfill a match anytime after a game session has been created.

To request a match backfill, specify a unique ticket ID, the existing game session's ARN, a matchmaking configuration, and a set of data that describes all current players in the game session. If successful, a match backfill ticket is created and returned with status set to QUEUED. The ticket is placed in the matchmaker's ticket pool and processed. Track the status of the ticket to respond as needed.

The process of finding backfill matches is essentially identical to the initial matchmaking process. The matchmaker searches the pool and groups tickets together to form potential matches, allowing only one backfill ticket per potential match. Once the a match is formed, the matchmaker creates player sessions for the new players. All tickets in the match are updated with the game session's connection information, and the GameSession object is updated to include matchmaker data on the new players. For more detail on how match backfill requests are processed, see How Amazon GameLift FlexMatch Works .

            If a matchmaker has a rule that evaluates player latency, players must report latency in order to be matched. If no latency is reported in this scenario, FlexMatch assumes that no Regions are available to the player and the ticket is not matchable.

            • (string) --
              • (integer) --
      • GameSessionConnectionInfo (dict) --

        Identifier and connection information of the game session created for the match. This information is added to the ticket only after the matchmaking request has been successfully completed. This parameter is not set when FlexMatch is being used without GameLift hosting.

          • Non-TLS-enabled fleets: ec2-<unique identifier>.compute.amazonaws.com . (See Amazon EC2 Instance IP Addressing .)

          When connecting to a game session that is running on a TLS-enabled fleet, you must use the DNS name, not the IP address.

        • Port (integer) --

          Port number for the game session. To connect to a Amazon GameLift game server, an app needs both the IP address and port number.

        • MatchedPlayerSessions (list) --

          A collection of player session IDs, one for each player ID that was included in the original matchmaking request.

          • (dict) --

            Represents a new player session that is created as a result of a successful FlexMatch match. A successful match automatically creates new player sessions for every player ID in the original matchmaking request.

            When players connect to the match's game session, they must include both player ID and player session ID in order to claim their assigned player slot.

            • PlayerId (string) --

              A unique identifier for a player

            • PlayerSessionId (string) --

start_matchmaking(**kwargs)

Uses FlexMatch to create a game match for a group of players based on custom matchmaking rules. If you're also using GameLift hosting, a new game session is started for the matched players. Each matchmaking request identifies one or more players to find a match for, and specifies the type of match to build, including the team configuration and the rules for an acceptable match. When a matchmaking request identifies a group of players who want to play together, FlexMatch finds additional players to fill the match. Match type, rules, and other features are defined in a MatchmakingConfiguration .

To start matchmaking, provide a unique ticket ID, specify a matchmaking configuration, and include the players to be matched. For each player, you must also include the player attribute values that are required by the matchmaking configuration (in the rule set). If successful, a matchmaking ticket is returned with status set to QUEUED .

Track the status of the ticket to respond as needed. If you're also using GameLift hosting, a successfully completed ticket contains game session connection information. Ticket status updates are tracked using event notification through Amazon Simple Notification Service (SNS), which is defined in the matchmaking configuration.

suspend_game_server_group(**kwargs)
This operation is used with the Amazon GameLift FleetIQ solution and game server groups.

Temporarily stops activity on a game server group without terminating instances or the game server group. You can restart activity by calling ResumeGameServerGroup . You can suspend the following activity:

  • Instance type replacement - This activity evaluates the current game hosting viability of all Spot instance types that are defined for the game server group. It updates the Auto Scaling group to remove nonviable Spot Instance types, which have a higher chance of game server interruptions. It then balances capacity across the remaining viable Spot Instance types. When this activity is suspended, the Auto Scaling group continues with its current balance, regardless of viability. Instance protection, utilization metrics, and capacity scaling activities continue to be active.

To suspend activity, specify a game server group ARN and the type of activity to be suspended. If successful, a GameServerGroup object is returned showing that the activity is listed in SuspendedActions .

Response Structure

  • (dict) --

    • GameServerGroup (dict) --

      An object that describes the game server group resource, with the SuspendedActions property updated to reflect the suspended activity.

      • GameServerGroupName (string) --

        A developer-defined identifier for the game server group. The name is unique for each Region in each AWS account.

      • GameServerGroupArn (string) --

        A generated unique ID for the game server group.

      • RoleArn (string) --

        The Amazon Resource Name (ARN ) for an IAM role that allows Amazon GameLift to access your EC2 Auto Scaling groups.

      • InstanceDefinitions (list) --

        The set of EC2 instance types that GameLift FleetIQ can use when balancing and automatically scaling instances in the corresponding Auto Scaling group.

        • (dict) --

          This data type is used with the Amazon GameLift FleetIQ and game server groups.

          An allowed instance type for a GameServerGroup . All game server groups must have at least two instance types defined for it. GameLift FleetIQ periodically evaluates each defined instance type for viability. It then updates the Auto Scaling group with the list of viable instance types.

          • InstanceType (string) --

            An EC2 instance type designation.

          • WeightedCapacity (string) --

            Instance weighting that indicates how much this instance type contributes to the total capacity of a game server group. Instance weights are used by GameLift FleetIQ to calculate the instance type's cost per unit hour and better identify the most cost-effective options. For detailed information on weighting instance capacity, see Instance Weighting in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide . Default value is "1".

      • BalancingStrategy (string) --

        Indicates how GameLift FleetIQ balances the use of Spot Instances and On-Demand Instances in the game server group. Method options include the following:

        • SPOT_ONLY - Only Spot Instances are used in the game server group. If Spot Instances are unavailable or not viable for game hosting, the game server group provides no hosting capacity until Spot Instances can again be used. Until then, no new instances are started, and the existing nonviable Spot Instances are terminated (after current gameplay ends) and are not replaced.
        • SPOT_PREFERRED - (default value) Spot Instances are used whenever available in the game server group. If Spot Instances are unavailable, the game server group continues to provide hosting capacity by falling back to On-Demand Instances. Existing nonviable Spot Instances are terminated (after current gameplay ends) and are replaced with new On-Demand Instances.
        • ON_DEMAND_ONLY - Only On-Demand Instances are used in the game server group. No Spot Instances are used, even when available, while this balancing strategy is in force.
      • GameServerProtectionPolicy (string) --

        A flag that indicates whether instances in the game server group are protected from early termination. Unprotected instances that have active game servers running might be terminated during a scale-down event, causing players to be dropped from the game. Protected instances cannot be terminated while there are active game servers running except in the event of a forced game server group deletion (see ). An exception to this is with Spot Instances, which can be terminated by AWS regardless of protection status.

      • AutoScalingGroupArn (string) --

        A generated unique ID for the EC2 Auto Scaling group that is associated with this game server group.

      • Status (string) --

        The current status of the game server group. Possible statuses include:

        • NEW - GameLift FleetIQ has validated the CreateGameServerGroup() request.
        • ACTIVATING - GameLift FleetIQ is setting up a game server group, which includes creating an Auto Scaling group in your AWS account.
        • ACTIVE - The game server group has been successfully created.
        • DELETE_SCHEDULED - A request to delete the game server group has been received.
        • DELETING - GameLift FleetIQ has received a valid DeleteGameServerGroup() request and is processing it. GameLift FleetIQ must first complete and release hosts before it deletes the Auto Scaling group and the game server group.
        • DELETED - The game server group has been successfully deleted.
        • ERROR - The asynchronous processes of activating or deleting a game server group has failed, resulting in an error state.
      • StatusReason (string) --

        Additional information about the current game server group status. This information might provide additional insight on groups that are in ERROR status.

      • SuspendedActions (list) --

        A list of activities that are currently suspended for this game server group. If this property is empty, all activities are occurring.

        • (string) --
      • CreationTime (datetime) --

        A timestamp that indicates when this data object was created. Format is a number expressed in Unix time as milliseconds (for example "1469498468.057" ).

      • LastUpdatedTime (datetime) --

        A timestamp that indicates when this game server group was last updated.

update_fleet_capacity(**kwargs)

Updates capacity settings for a fleet. Use this operation to specify the number of EC2 instances (hosts) that you want this fleet to contain. Before calling this operation, you may want to call DescribeEC2InstanceLimits to get the maximum capacity based on the fleet's EC2 instance type.

Specify minimum and maximum number of instances. Amazon GameLift will not change fleet capacity to values fall outside of this range. This is particularly important when using auto-scaling (see PutScalingPolicy ) to allow capacity to adjust based on player demand while imposing limits on automatic adjustments.

To update fleet capacity, specify the fleet ID and the number of instances you want the fleet to host. If successful, Amazon GameLift starts or terminates instances so that the fleet's active instance count matches the desired instance count. You can view a fleet's current capacity information by calling DescribeFleetCapacity . If the desired instance count is higher than the instance type's limit, the "Limit Exceeded" exception occurs.

update_game_server(**kwargs)
This operation is used with the Amazon GameLift FleetIQ solution and game server groups.

Updates information about a registered game server to help GameLift FleetIQ to track game server availability. This operation is called by a game server process that is running on an instance in a game server group.

Use this operation to update the following types of game server information. You can make all three types of updates in the same request:

  • To update the game server's utilization status, identify the game server and game server group and specify the current utilization status. Use this status to identify when game servers are currently hosting games and when they are available to be claimed.
  • To report health status, identify the game server and game server group and set health check to HEALTHY . If a game server does not report health status for a certain length of time, the game server is no longer considered healthy. As a result, it will be eventually deregistered from the game server group to avoid affecting utilization metrics. The best practice is to report health every 60 seconds.
  • To change game server metadata, provide updated game server data.

Once a game server is successfully updated, the relevant statuses and timestamps are updated.

      • InstanceId (string) --

        The unique identifier for the instance where the game server is running. This ID is available in the instance metadata. EC2 instance IDs use a 17-character format, for example: i-1234567890abcdef0 .

      • ConnectionInfo (string) --

        The port and IP address that must be used to establish a client connection to the game server.

      • GameServerData (string) --

        A set of custom game server properties, formatted as a single string value. This data is passed to a game client or service when it requests information on game servers using ListGameServers or ClaimGameServer .

      • ClaimStatus (string) --

        Indicates when an available game server has been reserved for gameplay but has not yet started hosting a game. Once it is claimed, the game server remains in CLAIMED status for a maximum of one minute. During this time, game clients connect to the game server to start the game and trigger the game server to update its utilization status. After one minute, the game server claim status reverts to null.

      • UtilizationStatus (string) --

        Indicates whether the game server is currently available for new games or is busy. Possible statuses include:

        • AVAILABLE - The game server is available to be claimed. A game server that has been claimed remains in this status until it reports game hosting activity.
        • UTILIZED - The game server is currently hosting a game session with players.
      • RegistrationTime (datetime) --

        Timestamp that indicates when the game server was created with a RegisterGameServer request. The format is a number expressed in Unix time as milliseconds (for example "1469498468.057" ).

      • LastClaimTime (datetime) --

        Timestamp that indicates the last time the game server was claimed with a ClaimGameServer request. The format is a number expressed in Unix time as milliseconds (for example "1469498468.057" ). This value is used to calculate when a claimed game server's status should revert to null.

      • LastHealthCheckTime (datetime) --

        Timestamp that indicates the last time the game server was updated with health status using an UpdateGameServer request. The format is a number expressed in Unix time as milliseconds (for example "1469498468.057" ). After game server registration, this property is only changed when a game server update specifies a health check value.

  • GameLift.Client.exceptions.UnauthorizedException
  • GameLift.Client.exceptions.InternalServiceException
update_game_server_group(**kwargs)
This operation is used with the Amazon GameLift FleetIQ solution and game server groups.

Updates GameLift FleetIQ-specific properties for a game server group. Many Auto Scaling group properties are updated on the Auto Scaling group directly, including the launch template, Auto Scaling policies, and maximum/minimum/desired instance counts.

To update the game server group, specify the game server group ID and provide the updated values. Before applying the updates, the new values are validated to ensure that GameLift FleetIQ can continue to perform instance balancing activity. If successful, a GameServerGroup object is returned.

)
Parameters
  • GameServerGroupName (string) --

    [REQUIRED]

    A unique identifier for the game server group. Use either the GameServerGroup name or ARN value.

  • RoleArn (string) -- The Amazon Resource Name (ARN ) for an IAM role that allows Amazon GameLift to access your EC2 Auto Scaling groups.
  • InstanceDefinitions (list) --

    An updated list of EC2 instance types to use in the Auto Scaling group. The instance definitions must specify at least two different instance types that are supported by GameLift FleetIQ. This updated list replaces the entire current list of instance definitions for the game server group. For more information on instance types, see EC2 Instance Types in the Amazon EC2 User Guide . You can optionally specify capacity weighting for each instance type. If no weight value is specified for an instance type, it is set to the default value "1". For more information about capacity weighting, see Instance Weighting for Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide.

    • (dict) --
      This data type is used with the Amazon GameLift FleetIQ and game server groups.

      An allowed instance type for a GameServerGroup . All game server groups must have at least two instance types defined for it. GameLift FleetIQ periodically evaluates each defined instance type for viability. It then updates the Auto Scaling group with the list of viable instance types.

      • InstanceType (string) -- [REQUIRED]

        An EC2 instance type designation.

      • WeightedCapacity (string) --

        Instance weighting that indicates how much this instance type contributes to the total capacity of a game server group. Instance weights are used by GameLift FleetIQ to calculate the instance type's cost per unit hour and better identify the most cost-effective options. For detailed information on weighting instance capacity, see Instance Weighting in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide . Default value is "1".

  • GameServerProtectionPolicy (string) -- A flag that indicates whether instances in the game server group are protected from early termination. Unprotected instances that have active game servers running might be terminated during a scale-down event, causing players to be dropped from the game. Protected instances cannot be terminated while there are active game servers running except in the event of a forced game server group deletion (see ). An exception to this is with Spot Instances, which can be terminated by AWS regardless of protection status. This property is set to NO_PROTECTION by default.
  • BalancingStrategy (string) --

    Indicates how GameLift FleetIQ balances the use of Spot Instances and On-Demand Instances in the game server group. Method options include the following:

    • SPOT_ONLY - Only Spot Instances are used in the game server group. If Spot Instances are unavailable or not viable for game hosting, the game server group provides no hosting capacity until Spot Instances can again be used. Until then, no new instances are started, and the existing nonviable Spot Instances are terminated (after current gameplay ends) and are not replaced.
    • SPOT_PREFERRED - (default value) Spot Instances are used whenever available in the game server group. If Spot Instances are unavailable, the game server group continues to provide hosting capacity by falling back to On-Demand Instances. Existing nonviable Spot Instances are terminated (after current gameplay ends) and are replaced with new On-Demand Instances.
    • ON_DEMAND_ONLY - Only On-Demand Instances are used in the game server group. No Spot Instances are used, even when available, while this balancing strategy is in force.
