[ aws . gamelift ]

create-fleet-locations

Description

Adds remote locations to a fleet and begins populating the new locations with EC2 instances. The new instances conform to the fleet's instance type, auto-scaling, and other configuration settings.

Note

This operation cannot be used with fleets that don't support remote locations. Fleets can have multiple locations only if they reside in AWS Regions that support this feature (see CreateFleet for the complete list) and were created after the feature was released in March 2021.

To add fleet locations, specify the fleet to be updated and provide a list of one or more locations.

If successful, this operation returns the list of added locations with their status set to NEW . GameLift initiates the process of starting an instance in each added location. You can track the status of each new location by monitoring location creation events using DescribeFleetEvents . Alternatively, you can poll location status by calling DescribeFleetLocationAttributes . After a location status becomes ACTIVE , you can adjust the location's capacity as needed with UpdateFleetCapacity .

Synopsis

  create-fleet-locations
--fleet-id <value>
--locations <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--fleet-id (string)

A unique identifier for the fleet to add locations to. You can use either the fleet ID or ARN value.

--locations (list)

A list of locations to deploy additional instances to and manage as part of the fleet. You can add any GameLift-supported AWS Region as a remote location, in the form of an AWS Region code such as us-west-2 .

(structure)

A remote location where a multi-location fleet can deploy EC2 instances for game hosting.

Location -> (string)

An AWS Region code, such as us-west-2 .

Shorthand Syntax:

Location=string ...

JSON Syntax:

[
  {
    "Location": "string"
  }
  ...
]

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Output

FleetId -> (string)

A unique identifier for the fleet that was updated with new locations.

FleetArn -> (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN ) that is assigned to a 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 .

LocationStates -> (list)

The remote locations that are being added to the fleet, and the life-cycle status of each location. For new locations, the status is set to NEW . During location creation, GameLift updates each location's status as instances are deployed there and prepared for game hosting. This list does not include the fleet home Region or any remote locations that were already added to the fleet.

(structure)

A fleet location and its life-cycle state. A location state object might be used to describe a fleet's remote location or home Region. Life-cycle state tracks the progress of launching the first instance in a new location and preparing it for game hosting, and then removing all instances and deleting the location from the fleet.
