CfnAlias

class aws_cdk.aws_gamelift.CfnAlias(scope, id, *, name, routing_strategy, description=None)

Bases: aws_cdk.core.CfnResource

A CloudFormation AWS::GameLift::Alias.

The AWS::GameLift::Alias resource creates an alias for an Amazon GameLift (GameLift) fleet destination. There are two types of routing strategies for aliases: simple and terminal. A simple alias points to an active fleet. A terminal alias displays a message instead of routing players to an active fleet. For example, a terminal alias might display a URL link that directs players to an upgrade site. You can use aliases to define destinations in a game session queue or when requesting new game sessions.

Example:

# The code below shows an example of how to instantiate this type.
# The values are placeholders you should change.
import aws_cdk.aws_gamelift as gamelift

cfn_alias = gamelift.CfnAlias(self, "MyCfnAlias",
    name="name",
    routing_strategy=gamelift.CfnAlias.RoutingStrategyProperty(
        type="type",

        # the properties below are optional
        fleet_id="fleetId",
        message="message"
    ),

    # the properties below are optional
    description="description"
)

Create a new AWS::GameLift::Alias.

Parameters
  • scope (Construct) –

    • scope in which this resource is defined.

  • id (str) –

    • scoped id of the resource.

  • name (str) – A descriptive label that is associated with an alias. Alias names do not need to be unique.

  • routing_strategy (Union[RoutingStrategyProperty, IResolvable]) – The routing configuration, including routing type and fleet target, for the alias.

  • description (Optional[str]) – A human-readable description of the alias.

Methods

add_deletion_override(path)

Syntactic sugar for addOverride(path, undefined).

Parameters

path (str) – The path of the value to delete.

Return type

None

add_depends_on(target)

Indicates that this resource depends on another resource and cannot be provisioned unless the other resource has been successfully provisioned.

This can be used for resources across stacks (or nested stack) boundaries and the dependency will automatically be transferred to the relevant scope.

Parameters

target (CfnResource) –

Return type

None

add_metadata(key, value)

Add a value to the CloudFormation Resource Metadata.

Parameters
  • key (str) –

  • value (Any) –

See

https://docs.aws.amazon.com/AWSCloudFormation/latest/UserGuide/metadata-section-structure.html

Note that this is a different set of metadata from CDK node metadata; this metadata ends up in the stack template under the resource, whereas CDK node metadata ends up in the Cloud Assembly.

Return type

None

add_override(path, value)

Adds an override to the synthesized CloudFormation resource.

To add a property override, either use addPropertyOverride or prefix path with “Properties.” (i.e. Properties.TopicName).

If the override is nested, separate each nested level using a dot (.) in the path parameter. If there is an array as part of the nesting, specify the index in the path.

To include a literal . in the property name, prefix with a \. In most programming languages you will need to write this as "\\." because the \ itself will need to be escaped.

For example:

cfn_resource.add_override("Properties.GlobalSecondaryIndexes.0.Projection.NonKeyAttributes", ["myattribute"])
cfn_resource.add_override("Properties.GlobalSecondaryIndexes.1.ProjectionType", "INCLUDE")

would add the overrides Example:

"Properties": {
   "GlobalSecondaryIndexes": [
     {
       "Projection": {
         "NonKeyAttributes": [ "myattribute" ]
         ...
       }
       ...
     },
     {
       "ProjectionType": "INCLUDE"
       ...
     },
   ]
   ...
}

The value argument to addOverride will not be processed or translated in any way. Pass raw JSON values in here with the correct capitalization for CloudFormation. If you pass CDK classes or structs, they will be rendered with lowercased key names, and CloudFormation will reject the template.

Parameters
  • path (str) –

    • The path of the property, you can use dot notation to override values in complex types. Any intermdediate keys will be created as needed.

  • value (Any) –

    • The value. Could be primitive or complex.

Return type

None

add_property_deletion_override(property_path)

Adds an override that deletes the value of a property from the resource definition.

Parameters

property_path (str) – The path to the property.

Return type

None

add_property_override(property_path, value)

Adds an override to a resource property.

Syntactic sugar for addOverride("Properties.<...>", value).

Parameters
  • property_path (str) – The path of the property.

  • value (Any) – The value.

Return type

None

apply_removal_policy(policy=None, *, apply_to_update_replace_policy=None, default=None)

Sets the deletion policy of the resource based on the removal policy specified.

The Removal Policy controls what happens to this resource when it stops being managed by CloudFormation, either because you’ve removed it from the CDK application or because you’ve made a change that requires the resource to be replaced.

The resource can be deleted (RemovalPolicy.DESTROY), or left in your AWS account for data recovery and cleanup later (RemovalPolicy.RETAIN).

Parameters
  • policy (Optional[RemovalPolicy]) –

  • apply_to_update_replace_policy (Optional[bool]) – Apply the same deletion policy to the resource’s “UpdateReplacePolicy”. Default: true

  • default (Optional[RemovalPolicy]) – The default policy to apply in case the removal policy is not defined. Default: - Default value is resource specific. To determine the default value for a resoure, please consult that specific resource’s documentation.

Return type

None

get_att(attribute_name)

Returns a token for an runtime attribute of this resource.

Ideally, use generated attribute accessors (e.g. resource.arn), but this can be used for future compatibility in case there is no generated attribute.

Parameters

attribute_name (str) – The name of the attribute.

Return type

Reference

get_metadata(key)

Retrieve a value value from the CloudFormation Resource Metadata.

Parameters

key (str) –

See

https://docs.aws.amazon.com/AWSCloudFormation/latest/UserGuide/metadata-section-structure.html

Note that this is a different set of metadata from CDK node metadata; this metadata ends up in the stack template under the resource, whereas CDK node metadata ends up in the Cloud Assembly.

Return type

Any

inspect(inspector)

Examines the CloudFormation resource and discloses attributes.

Parameters

inspector (TreeInspector) –

  • tree inspector to collect and process attributes.

Return type

None

override_logical_id(new_logical_id)

Static Methods

classmethod is_cfn_element(x)

Returns true if a construct is a stack element (i.e. part of the synthesized cloudformation template).

Uses duck-typing instead of instanceof to allow stack elements from different versions of this library to be included in the same stack.

Parameters

x (Any) –

Return type

bool

Returns

The construct as a stack element or undefined if it is not a stack element.

classmethod is_cfn_resource(construct)

Check whether the given construct is a CfnResource.

Parameters

construct (IConstruct) –

Return type

bool

classmethod is_construct(x)

Return whether the given object is a Construct.

Parameters

x (Any) –

Return type

bool

RoutingStrategyProperty

class CfnAlias.RoutingStrategyProperty(*, type, fleet_id=None, message=None)

Bases: object

The routing configuration for a fleet alias.

Parameters
  • type (str) – A type of routing strategy. Possible routing types include the following: - SIMPLE - The alias resolves to one specific fleet. Use this type when routing to active fleets. - TERMINAL - The alias does not resolve to a fleet but instead can be used to display a message to the user. A terminal alias throws a TerminalRoutingStrategyException with the message that you specified in the Message property.

  • fleet_id (Optional[str]) – A unique identifier for a fleet that the alias points to. If you specify SIMPLE for the Type property, you must specify this property.

  • message (Optional[str]) – The message text to be used with a terminal routing strategy. If you specify TERMINAL for the Type property, you must specify this property.
