AWS SDK Version 3 for .NET
API Reference

AWS services or capabilities described in AWS Documentation may vary by region/location. Click Getting Started with Amazon AWS to see specific differences applicable to the China (Beijing) Region.

Container for the parameters to the CreateBuild operation. Creates a new Amazon GameLift build from a set of game server binary files stored in an Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) location. To use this API call, create a .zip file containing all of the files for the build and store it in an Amazon S3 bucket under your AWS account. For help on packaging your build files and creating a build, see Uploading Your Game to Amazon GameLift.

Use this API action ONLY if you are storing your game build files in an Amazon S3 bucket. To create a build using files stored locally, use the CLI command upload-build , which uploads the build files from a file location you specify.

To create a new build using CreateBuild, identify the storage location and operating system of your game build. You also have the option of specifying a build name and version. If successful, this action creates a new build record with an unique build ID and in INITIALIZED status. Use the API call DescribeBuild to check the status of your build. A build must be in READY status before it can be used to create fleets to host your game.
