Alias detail information includes:

  • Type – The routing option for the alias, which can be one of these:

    • Simple – A simple alias routes a player to games on an associated fleet. You can update the alias to point to a different fleet at any time.

    • Terminal – A terminal alias does not point to a fleet. Instead it passes a message back to the client. This alias type is useful for gracefully notifying players when a set of game servers is no longer available. For example, a terminal alias might inform players that their game clients are out of date and provide upgrade options.

  • Alias ID – The unique number used to identify the alias.

  • Description – The description of the alias.

  • Date created – The date and time the alias was created.
