Developer Guide

This documentation is for an older version of Amazon AppStream. For information about the latest version, see the Amazon AppStream 2.0 Developer Guide.

Archiving an Application

You can deprecate a streaming application and prevent it from accepting new client connections. When you do this, the streaming application is terminated and removed from the application list.

While the streaming application is being archived, the streaming application continues to stream content to current client sessions, but does not accept new client sessions. When all the existing client sessions have finished, the streaming application enters the archived state.

To archive an application

  1. In the Amazon AppStream console, click View your streaming applications. This button appears only if you have added applications to Amazon AppStream.

  2. In the list of applications, click the name of the streaming application to view.

  3. On the Application Summary page, click Archive.

  4. In the Archive message box, click Archive.

    Amazon AppStream moves the application into the archived state. This may take a few minutes.

    When the application is archived, it no longer appears in the list of applications.
