Imports a game configuration.

This operation replaces the current configuration of the game with the provided input. This is not a reversible operation. If you want to preserve the previous configuration, use CreateSnapshot to make a new snapshot before importing.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

import-game-configuration uses document type values. Document types follow the JSON data model where valid values are: strings, numbers, booleans, null, arrays, and objects. For command input, options and nested parameters that are labeled with the type document must be provided as JSON. Shorthand syntax does not support document types.


--game-name <value>
--import-source <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--game-name (string)

The name of the game.

--import-source (structure)

The source used to import configuration sections.

File -> (blob)

The JSON string containing the configuration sections.

Shorthand Syntax:


JSON Syntax:

  "File": blob

--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.
