Delete a Fleet

In the process of testing or running multiple versions of your game, you might create dozens of fleets that eventually become unnecessary to maintain. You can delete fleets that you no longer need. Deleting a fleet also permanently removes associated game sessions and collected data.


You can delete a fleet only after you have scaled it down to 0. Set the desired number of EC2 instances to 0 and then wait for the scaled down state to take effect before you delete the fleet.

To delete a fleet

  1. In the Amazon GameLift console, choose Fleets from the menu bar.

  2. On the Fleets page, select the fleet you want to delete.

  3. On the selected fleet page, for Actions, choose Terminate fleet.

  4. In the Terminate fleet dialog box, confirm the deletion by typing the name of the fleet.

  5. Click Delete.
