Synopsis

Calls the Amazon GameLift Service CreatePlayerSessions API operation.

Syntax

New-GMLPlayerSession
-GameSessionId <String>
-PlayerDataMap <Hashtable>
-PlayerId <String[]>
-Select <String>
-PassThru <SwitchParameter>
-Force <SwitchParameter>

Description

Reserves open slots in a game session for a group of players. New player sessions can be created in any game session with an open slot that is in ACTIVE status and has a player creation policy of ACCEPT_ALL. To add a single player to a game session, use CreatePlayerSession. To create player sessions, specify a game session ID and a list of player IDs. Optionally, provide a set of player data for each player ID. If successful, a slot is reserved in the game session for each player, and new PlayerSession objects are returned with player session IDs. Each player references their player session ID when sending a connection request to the game session, and the game server can use it to validate the player reservation with the GameLift service. Player sessions cannot be updated.

Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-PlayerDataMap <Hashtable>
Map of string pairs, each specifying a player ID and a set of developer-defined information related to the player.
