Create an Alias

You can create a new alias to resolve to a fleet.

To create a new alias

  1. Open the Amazon GameLift console at https://console.aws.amazon.com/gamelift/.

  2. Choose Aliases from the menu bar.

  3. On the Aliases page, click Create alias.

  4. On the Create alias page, in the Alias details section, do the following:

    • Alias name – Type a friendly name so you can easily identify the alias in the catalog.

    • Description – (Optional) Type a short description for your alias to add further identification.

  5. In the Routing options section, for Type, choose Simple or Terminal:

    • If you choose Simple, select an available fleet to associate with your alias. A simple alias routes player traffic to the associated fleet.

    • If you select Terminal, type a message that will be displayed to players. A terminal alias does not resolve to a fleet but only passes your message to the client.

  6. Click Configure alias.
