describe-fleet-attributes

Description

Retrieves core fleet-wide properties, including the computing hardware and deployment configuration for all instances in the fleet.

This operation can be used in the following ways:

  • To get attributes for one or more specific fleets, provide a list of fleet IDs or fleet ARNs.
  • To get attributes for all fleets, do not provide a fleet identifier.

When requesting attributes for multiple fleets, use the pagination parameters to retrieve results as a set of sequential pages.

If successful, a FleetAttributes object is returned for each fleet requested, unless the fleet identifier is not found.

Note

Some API operations limit the number of fleet IDs that allowed in one request. If a request exceeds this limit, the request fails and the error message contains the maximum allowed number.

Setting up GameLift fleets

See also: AWS API Documentation

describe-fleet-attributes is a paginated operation. Multiple API calls may be issued in order to retrieve the entire data set of results. You can disable pagination by providing the --no-paginate argument. When using --output text and the --query argument on a paginated response, the --query argument must extract data from the results of the following query expressions: FleetAttributes

Options

--fleet-ids (list)

A list of unique fleet identifiers to retrieve attributes for. You can use either the fleet ID or ARN value. To retrieve attributes for all current fleets, do not include this parameter.

(string)

Syntax:

"string" "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.

--starting-token (string)

A token to specify where to start paginating. This is the NextToken from a previously truncated response.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--page-size (integer)

The size of each page to get in the AWS service call. This does not affect the number of items returned in the command's output. Setting a smaller page size results in more calls to the AWS service, retrieving fewer items in each call. This can help prevent the AWS service calls from timing out.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--max-items (integer)

The total number of items to return in the command's output. If the total number of items available is more than the value specified, a NextToken is provided in the command's output. To resume pagination, provide the NextToken value in the starting-token argument of a subsequent command. Do not use the NextToken response element directly outside of the AWS CLI.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--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.

Global Options

--debug (boolean)

Turn on debug logging.

--endpoint-url (string)

Override command's default URL with the given URL.

--no-verify-ssl (boolean)

By default, the AWS CLI uses SSL when communicating with AWS services. For each SSL connection, the AWS CLI will verify SSL certificates. This option overrides the default behavior of verifying SSL certificates.

--no-paginate (boolean)

Disable automatic pagination.

--output (string)

The formatting style for command output.

  • json
  • text
  • table

--query (string)

A JMESPath query to use in filtering the response data.

--profile (string)

Use a specific profile from your credential file.

--region (string)

The region to use. Overrides config/env settings.

--version (string)

Display the version of this tool.

--color (string)

Turn on/off color output.

  • on
  • off
  • auto

--no-sign-request (boolean)

Do not sign requests. Credentials will not be loaded if this argument is provided.

--ca-bundle (string)

The CA certificate bundle to use when verifying SSL certificates. Overrides config/env settings.

--cli-read-timeout (int)

The maximum socket read time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket read will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

--cli-connect-timeout (int)

The maximum socket connect time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket connect will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

Examples

Note

To use the following examples, you must have the AWS CLI installed and configured. See the Getting started guide in the AWS CLI User Guide for more information.

Unless otherwise stated, all examples have unix-like quotation rules. These examples will need to be adapted to your terminal's quoting rules. See Using quotation marks with strings in the AWS CLI User Guide .

Example1: To view attributes for a list of fleets

The following describe-fleet-attributes example retrieves fleet attributes for two specified fleets. As shown, the requested fleets are deployed with the same build, one for On-Demand instances and one for Spot instances, with some minor configuration differences.

Example2: To request attributes for all fleets

The following describe-fleet-attributes returns fleet attributes for all fleets with any status. This example illustrates the use of pagination parameters to return one fleet at a time.

aws gamelift describe-fleet-attributes \
    --limit 1

Output:

{
    "FleetAttributes": [
        {
            "FleetId": "fleet-a1b2c3d4-5678-90ab-cdef-EXAMPLE22222",

}

The output includes a NextToken value that you can use when you call the command a second time. Pass the value to the --next-token parameter to specify where to pick up the output. The following command returns the second result in the output.

aws gamelift describe-fleet-attributes \
    --limit 1 \
    --next-token eyJhd3NBY2NvdW50SWQiOnsicyI6IjMwMjc3NjAxNjM5OCJ9LCJidWlsZElkIjp7InMiOiJidWlsZC01NWYxZTZmMS1jY2FlLTQ3YTctOWI5ZS1iYjFkYTQwMjEXAMPLE1

Repeat until the response doesn't include a NextToken value.
