[ aws . gamelift ]



Resumes activity on a fleet that was suspended with StopFleetActions . Currently, this operation is used to restart a fleet's auto-scaling activity.

To start fleet actions, specify the fleet ID and the type of actions to restart. When auto-scaling fleet actions are restarted, Amazon GameLift once again initiates scaling events as triggered by the fleet's scaling policies. If actions on the fleet were never stopped, this operation will have no effect. You can view a fleet's stopped actions using DescribeFleetAttributes .

Operations related to fleet capacity scaling include:

  • DescribeFleetCapacity
  • UpdateFleetCapacity
  • DescribeEC2InstanceLimits
  • Manage scaling policies:
    • PutScalingPolicy (auto-scaling)
    • DescribeScalingPolicies (auto-scaling)
    • DeleteScalingPolicy (auto-scaling)
  • Manage fleet actions:
    • StartFleetActions
    • StopFleetActions

--actions (list)

"string" "string" ...

Where valid values are:

--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.
