[ aws . gamelift ]



Retrieves the inbound connection permissions for a fleet. Connection permissions include a range of IP addresses and port settings that incoming traffic can use to access server processes in the fleet. To get a fleet's inbound connection permissions, specify a fleet ID. If successful, a collection of IpPermission objects is returned for the requested fleet ID. If the requested fleet has been deleted, the result set is empty.

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


--fleet-id (string)

Unique identifier for a fleet to retrieve port settings for.

--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.

--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.


InboundPermissions -> (list)

Object that contains port settings for the requested fleet ID.


A range of IP addresses and port settings that allow inbound traffic to connect to server processes on Amazon GameLift. Each game session hosted on a fleet is assigned a unique combination of IP address and port number, which must fall into the fleet's allowed ranges. This combination is included in the GameSession object.

FromPort -> (integer)

Starting value for a range of allowed port numbers.

ToPort -> (integer)

Ending value for a range of allowed port numbers. Port numbers are end-inclusive. This value must be higher than FromPort .

IpRange -> (string)

Range of allowed IP addresses. This value must be expressed in CIDR notation. Example: "[subnet mask] " or optionally the shortened version "[subnet mask] ".

Protocol -> (string)

Network communication protocol used by the fleet.
