        'StartingToken': 'string'
  • FleetId (string) –


    A unique identifier for the fleet to retrieve instance information for. You can use either the fleet ID or ARN value.

  • InstanceId (string) – A unique identifier for an instance to retrieve. Specify an instance ID or leave blank to retrieve all instances in the fleet.

  • PaginationConfig (dict) –

    A dictionary that provides parameters to control pagination.

    • MaxItems (integer) –

      The total number of items to return. If the total number of items available is more than the value specified in max-items then a NextToken will be provided in the output that you can use to resume pagination.

    • PageSize (integer) –

Response Structure

  • (dict) –

    • Instances (list) –

      A collection of objects containing properties for each instance returned.

      • (dict) –

        Represents a virtual computing instance that runs game server processes and hosts game sessions. In Amazon GameLift, one or more instances make up a managed EC2 fleet.

        • FleetId (string) –

          A unique identifier for the fleet that the instance belongs to.

        • FleetArn (string) –

          The Amazon Resource Name ( ARN) that is assigned to a Amazon GameLift fleet resource and uniquely identifies it. ARNs are unique across all Regions. Format is arn:aws:gamelift:<region>::fleet/fleet-a1234567-b8c9-0d1e-2fa3-b45c6d7e8912.

        • InstanceId (string) –

          A unique identifier for the instance.

        • IpAddress (string) –

          IP address that is assigned to the instance.

        • DnsName (string) –

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

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

        • OperatingSystem (string) –

          Operating system that is running on this EC2 instance.

        • Type (string) –

          EC2 instance type that defines the computing resources of this instance.

        • Status (string) –

          Current status of the instance. Possible statuses include the following:

          • PENDING – The instance is in the process of being created and launching server processes as defined in the fleet’s run-time configuration.

          • ACTIVE – The instance has been successfully created and at least one server process has successfully launched and reported back to Amazon GameLift that it is ready to host a game session. The instance is now considered ready to host game sessions.

          • TERMINATING – The instance is in the process of shutting down. This may happen to reduce capacity during a scaling down event or to recycle resources in the event of a problem.

        • CreationTime (datetime) –

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

        • Location (string) –

          The fleet location of the instance, expressed as an Amazon Web Services Region code, such as us-west-2.
