GameLift / Client / delete_fleet_locations



Removes locations from a multi-location fleet. When deleting a location, all game server process and all instances that are still active in the location are shut down.

To delete fleet locations, identify the fleet ID and provide a list of the locations to be deleted.

If successful, GameLift sets the location status to DELETING, and begins to shut down existing server processes and terminate instances in each location being deleted. When completed, the location status changes to TERMINATED.
