[ aws . gamelift ]

start-fleet-actions

Description

Resumes certain types of activity on fleet instances that were suspended with StopFleetActions . For multi-location fleets, fleet actions are managed separately for each location. Currently, this operation is used to restart a fleet's auto-scaling activity.

This operation can be used in the following ways:

  • To restart actions on instances in the fleet's home Region, provide a fleet ID and the type of actions to resume.
  • To restart actions on instances in one of the fleet's remote locations, provide a fleet ID, a location name, and the type of actions to resume.

If successful, GameLift once again initiates scaling events as triggered by the fleet's scaling policies. If actions on the fleet location were never stopped, this operation will have no effect. You can view a fleet's stopped actions using DescribeFleetAttributes or DescribeFleetLocationAttributes .

Synopsis

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

Options

--fleet-id (string)

A unique identifier for the fleet to restart actions on. You can use either the fleet ID or ARN value.

--actions (list)

List of actions to restart on the fleet.

(string)

Syntax:

"string" "string" ...

Where valid values are:
  AUTO_SCALING

--location (string)

The fleet location to restart fleet actions for. Specify a location in the form of an Amazon Web Services Region code, such as us-west-2 .

--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.

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 .

To restart fleet automatic scaling activity

The following start-fleet-actions example resumes the use of all scaling policies that are defined for the specified fleet but were stopped by calling``stop-fleet-actions``. After starting, the scaling policies immediately begin tracking their respective metrics.

aws gamelift start-fleet-actions \
    --fleet-id fleet-a1b2c3d4-5678-90ab-cdef-EXAMPLE11111 \
    --actions AUTO_SCALING

This command produces no output.

Output

FleetId -> (string)

A unique identifier for the fleet to restart actions on.

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 .
