Class: Aws::GameLift::Client

Inherits:
Seahorse::Client::Base show all
Defined in:
(unknown)

Overview

An API client for Amazon GameLift. To construct a client, you need to configure a :region and :credentials.

gamelift = Aws::GameLift::Client.new(
  region: region_name,
  credentials: credentials,
  # ...
)

See #initialize for a full list of supported configuration options.

Region

You can configure a default region in the following locations:

  • ENV['AWS_REGION']
  • Aws.config[:region]

Go here for a list of supported regions.

Credentials

Default credentials are loaded automatically from the following locations:

  • ENV['AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID'] and ENV['AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY']
  • Aws.config[:credentials]
  • The shared credentials ini file at ~/.aws/credentials (more information)
  • From an instance profile when running on EC2

You can also construct a credentials object from one of the following classes:

Alternatively, you configure credentials with :access_key_id and :secret_access_key:

# load credentials from disk
creds = YAML.load(File.read('/path/to/secrets'))

Aws::GameLift::Client.new(
  access_key_id: creds['access_key_id'],
  secret_access_key: creds['secret_access_key']
)

Always load your credentials from outside your application. Avoid configuring credentials statically and never commit them to source control.

Instance Method Details

#accept_match(options = {}) ⇒ Struct

Registers a player's acceptance or rejection of a proposed FlexMatch match. A matchmaking configuration may require player acceptance; if so, then matches built with that configuration cannot be completed unless all players accept the proposed match within a specified time limit.

When FlexMatch builds a match, all the matchmaking tickets involved in the proposed match are placed into status REQUIRES_ACCEPTANCE. This is a trigger for your game to get acceptance from all players in the ticket. Acceptances are only valid for tickets when they are in this status; all other acceptances result in an error.

To register acceptance, specify the ticket ID, a response, and one or more players. Once all players have registered acceptance, the matchmaking tickets advance to status PLACING, where a new game session is created for the match.

If any player rejects the match, or if acceptances are not received before a specified timeout, the proposed match is dropped. The matchmaking tickets are then handled in one of two ways: For tickets where one or more players rejected the match, the ticket status is returned to SEARCHING to find a new match. For tickets where one or more players failed to respond, the ticket status is set to CANCELLED, and processing is terminated. A new matchmaking request for these players can be submitted as needed.

#claim_game_server(options = {}) ⇒ Types::ClaimGameServerOutput

This action is part of Amazon GameLift FleetIQ with game server groups, which is in preview release and is subject to change.

Locates an available game server and temporarily reserves it to host gameplay and players. This action is called by a game client or client service (such as a matchmaker) to request hosting resources for a new game session. In response, GameLift FleetIQ searches for an available game server in the specified game server group, places the game server in "claimed" status for 60 seconds, and returns connection information back to the requester so that players can connect to the game server.

There are two ways you can claim a game server. For the first option, you provide a game server group ID only, which prompts GameLift FleetIQ to search for an available game server in the specified group and claim it. With this option, GameLift FleetIQ attempts to consolidate gameplay on as few instances as possible to minimize hosting costs. For the second option, you request a specific game server by its ID. This option results in a less efficient claiming process because it does not take advantage of consolidation and may fail if the requested game server is unavailable.

To claim a game server, identify a game server group and (optionally) a game server ID. If your game requires that game data be provided to the game server at the start of a game, such as a game map or player information, you can provide it in your claim request.

When a game server is successfully claimed, connection information is returned. A claimed game server's utilization status remains AVAILABLE, while the claim status is set to CLAIMED for up to 60 seconds. This time period allows the game server to be prompted to update its status to UTILIZED (using UpdateGameServer). If the game server's status is not updated within 60 seconds, the game server reverts to unclaimed status and is available to be claimed by another request.

If you try to claim a specific game server, this request will fail in the following cases: (1) if the game server utilization status is UTILIZED, (2) if the game server claim status is CLAIMED, or (3) if the instance that the game server is running on is flagged as draining.

#create_alias(options = {}) ⇒ Types::CreateAliasOutput

Creates an alias for a fleet. In most situations, you can use an alias ID in place of a fleet ID. An alias provides a level of abstraction for a fleet that is useful when redirecting player traffic from one fleet to another, such as when updating your game build.

Amazon GameLift supports two types of routing strategies for aliases: simple and terminal. A simple alias points to an active fleet. A terminal alias is used to display messaging or link to a URL instead of routing players to an active fleet. For example, you might use a terminal alias when a game version is no longer supported and you want to direct players to an upgrade site.

To create a fleet alias, specify an alias name, routing strategy, and optional description. Each simple alias can point to only one fleet, but a fleet can have multiple aliases. If successful, a new alias record is returned, including an alias ID and an ARN. You can reassign an alias to another fleet by calling UpdateAlias.

Examples:

resp = client.create_alias({
  name: "NonBlankAndLengthConstraintString", # required

  • :description (String)

    A human-readable description of the alias.

  • :routing_strategy (required, Types::RoutingStrategy)

    The routing configuration, including routing type and fleet target, for the alias.

  • :tags (Array<Types::Tag>)

    A list of labels to assign to the new alias resource. Tags are developer-defined key-value pairs. Tagging AWS resources are useful for resource management, access management and cost allocation. For more information, see Tagging AWS Resources in the AWS General Reference. Once the resource is created, you can use TagResource, UntagResource, and ListTagsForResource to add, remove, and view tags. The maximum tag limit may be lower than stated. See the AWS General Reference for actual tagging limits.

#create_build(options = {}) ⇒ Types::CreateBuildOutput

Creates a new Amazon GameLift build resource for your game server binary files. Game server binaries must be combined into a zip file for use with Amazon GameLift.

When setting up a new game build for GameLift, we recommend using the AWS CLI command upload-build . This helper command combines two tasks: (1) it uploads your build files from a file directory to a GameLift Amazon S3 location, and (2) it creates a new build resource.

The CreateBuild operation can used in the following scenarios:

  • To create a new game build with build files that are in an S3 location under an AWS account that you control. To use this option, you must first give Amazon GameLift access to the S3 bucket. With permissions in place, call CreateBuild and specify a build name, operating system, and the S3 storage location of your game build.

  • To directly upload your build files to a GameLift S3 location. To use this option, first call CreateBuild and specify a build name and operating system. This action creates a new build resource and also returns an S3 location with temporary access credentials. Use the credentials to manually upload your build files to the specified S3 location. For more information, see Uploading Objects in the Amazon S3 Developer Guide. Build files can be uploaded to the GameLift S3 location once only; that can't be updated.

If successful, this operation creates a new build resource with a unique build ID and places it in INITIALIZED status. A build must be in READY status before you can create fleets with it.

Options Hash (options):

  • :name (String)

    A descriptive label that is associated with a build. Build names do not need to be unique. You can use UpdateBuild to change this value later.

  • :version (String)

    Version information that is associated with a build or script. Version strings do not need to be unique. You can use UpdateBuild to change this value later.

  • :storage_location (Types::S3Location)

    Information indicating where your game build files are stored. Use this parameter only when creating a build with files stored in an S3 bucket that you own. The storage location must specify an S3 bucket name and key. The location must also specify a role ARN that you set up to allow Amazon GameLift to access your S3 bucket. The S3 bucket and your new build must be in the same Region.

  • :operating_system (String)

    The operating system that the game server binaries are built to run on. This value determines the type of fleet resources that you can use for this build. If your game build contains multiple executables, they all must run on the same operating system. If an operating system is not specified when creating a build, Amazon GameLift uses the default value (WINDOWS_2012). This value cannot be changed later.

  • :tags (Array<Types::Tag>)

    A list of labels to assign to the new build resource. Tags are developer-defined key-value pairs. Tagging AWS resources are useful for resource management, access management and cost allocation. For more information, see Tagging AWS Resources in the AWS General Reference. Once the resource is created, you can use TagResource, UntagResource, and ListTagsForResource to add, remove, and view tags. The maximum tag limit may be lower than stated.

#create_fleet(options = {}) ⇒ Types::CreateFleetOutput

Creates a new fleet to run your game servers. whether they are custom game builds or Realtime Servers with game-specific script. A fleet is a set of Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instances, each of which can host multiple game sessions. When creating a fleet, you choose the hardware specifications, set some configuration options, and specify the game server to deploy on the new fleet.

To create a new fleet, provide the following: (1) a fleet name, (2) an EC2 instance type and fleet type (spot or on-demand), (3) the build ID for your game build or script ID if using Realtime Servers, and (4) a runtime configuration, which determines how game servers will run on each instance in the fleet.

If the CreateFleet call is successful, Amazon GameLift performs the following tasks. You can track the process of a fleet by checking the fleet status or by monitoring fleet creation events:

  • Creates a fleet resource. Status: NEW.

  • Begins writing events to the fleet event log, which can be accessed in the Amazon GameLift console.

  • Sets the fleet's target capacity to 1 (desired instances), which triggers Amazon GameLift to start one new EC2 instance.

  • Downloads the game build or Realtime script to the new instance and installs it. Statuses: DOWNLOADING, VALIDATING, BUILDING.

  • Starts launching server processes on the instance. If the fleet is configured to run multiple server processes per instance, Amazon GameLift staggers each process launch by a few seconds. Status: ACTIVATING.

  • Sets the fleet's status to ACTIVE as soon as one server process is ready to host a game session.

  • :server_launch_path (String)

    This parameter is no longer used. Instead, specify a server launch path using the RuntimeConfiguration parameter. Requests that specify a server launch path and launch parameters instead of a runtime configuration will continue to work.

  • :server_launch_parameters (String)

    This parameter is no longer used. Instead, specify server launch parameters in the RuntimeConfiguration parameter. (Requests that specify a server launch path and launch parameters instead of a runtime configuration will continue to work.)

  • :log_paths (Array<String>)

    This parameter is no longer used. Instead, to specify where Amazon GameLift should store log files once a server process shuts down, use the Amazon GameLift server API ProcessReady() and specify one or more directory paths in logParameters. See more information in the Server API Reference.

  • :ec2_instance_type (required, String)

    The name of an EC2 instance type that is supported in Amazon GameLift. A fleet instance type determines the computing resources of each instance in the fleet, including CPU, memory, storage, and networking capacity. Amazon GameLift supports the following EC2 instance types. See Amazon EC2 Instance Types for detailed descriptions.

  • :ec2_inbound_permissions (Array<Types::IpPermission>)

    Range of IP addresses and port settings that permit inbound traffic to access game sessions that are running on the fleet. For fleets using a custom game build, this parameter is required before game sessions running on the fleet can accept connections. For Realtime Servers fleets, Amazon GameLift automatically sets TCP and UDP ranges for use by the Realtime servers. You can specify multiple permission settings or add more by updating the fleet.

  • :new_game_session_protection_policy (String)

    A game session protection policy to apply to all instances in this fleet. If this parameter is not set, instances in this fleet default to no protection. You can change a fleet\'s protection policy using UpdateFleetAttributes, but this change will only affect sessions created after the policy change. You can also set protection for individual instances using UpdateGameSession.

    • NoProtection - The game session can be terminated during a scale-down event.

    • FullProtection - If the game session is in an ACTIVE status, it cannot be terminated during a scale-down event.

  • :runtime_configuration (Types::RuntimeConfiguration)

    Instructions for launching server processes on each instance in the fleet. Server processes run either a custom game build executable or a Realtime script. The runtime configuration defines the server executables or launch script file, launch parameters, and the number of processes to run concurrently on each instance. When creating a fleet, the runtime configuration must have at least one server process configuration; otherwise the request fails with an invalid request exception. (This parameter replaces the parameters ServerLaunchPath and ServerLaunchParameters, although requests that contain values for these parameters instead of a runtime configuration will continue to work.) This parameter is required unless the parameters ServerLaunchPath and ServerLaunchParameters are defined. Runtime configuration replaced these parameters, but fleets that use them will continue to work.

  • :resource_creation_limit_policy (Types::ResourceCreationLimitPolicy)

    A policy that limits the number of game sessions an individual player can create over a span of time for this fleet.

  • :metric_groups (Array<String>)

    The name of an Amazon CloudWatch metric group to add this fleet to. A metric group aggregates the metrics for all fleets in the group. Specify an existing metric group name, or provide a new name to create a new metric group. A fleet can only be included in one metric group at a time.

  • :peer_vpc_aws_account_id (String)

    A unique identifier for the AWS account with the VPC that you want to peer your Amazon GameLift fleet with. You can find your account ID in the AWS Management Console under account settings.

  • :peer_vpc_id (String)

    A unique identifier for a VPC with resources to be accessed by your Amazon GameLift fleet. The VPC must be in the same Region as your fleet. To look up a VPC ID, use the VPC Dashboard in the AWS Management Console. Learn more about VPC peering in VPC Peering with Amazon GameLift Fleets.

  • :fleet_type (String)

    Indicates whether to use On-Demand instances or Spot instances for this fleet. If empty, the default is ON_DEMAND. Both categories of instances use identical hardware and configurations based on the instance type selected for this fleet. Learn more about On-Demand versus Spot Instances.

  • :instance_role_arn (String)

    A unique identifier for an AWS IAM role that manages access to your AWS services. With an instance role ARN set, any application that runs on an instance in this fleet can assume the role, including install scripts, server processes, and daemons (background processes). Create a role or look up a role\'s ARN from the IAM dashboard in the AWS Management Console. Learn more about using on-box credentials for your game servers at Access external resources from a game server.

  • :certificate_configuration (Types::CertificateConfiguration)

    Indicates whether to generate a TLS/SSL certificate for the new fleet. TLS certificates are used for encrypting traffic between game clients and game servers running on GameLift. If this parameter is not specified, the default value, DISABLED, is used. This fleet setting cannot be changed once the fleet is created. Learn more at Securing Client/Server Communication.

    Note: This feature requires the AWS Certificate Manager (ACM) service, which is available in the AWS global partition but not in all other partitions. When working in a partition that does not support this feature, a request for a new fleet with certificate generation results fails with a 4xx unsupported Region error.

    Valid values include:

    • GENERATED - Generate a TLS/SSL certificate for this fleet.

    • DISABLED - (default) Do not generate a TLS/SSL certificate for this fleet.

  • :tags (Array<Types::Tag>)

    A list of labels to assign to the new fleet resource. Tags are developer-defined key-value pairs. Tagging AWS resources are useful for resource management, access management and cost allocation. For more information, see Tagging AWS Resources in the AWS General Reference. Once the resource is created, you can use TagResource, UntagResource, and ListTagsForResource to add, remove, and view tags. The maximum tag limit may be lower than stated. See the AWS General Reference for actual tagging limits.

#create_game_server_group(options = {}) ⇒ Types::CreateGameServerGroupOutput

This action is part of Amazon GameLift FleetIQ with game server groups, which is in preview release and is subject to change.

Creates a GameLift FleetIQ game server group to manage a collection of EC2 instances for game hosting. In addition to creating the game server group, this action also creates an Auto Scaling group in your AWS account and establishes a link between the two groups. You have full control over configuration of the Auto Scaling group, but GameLift FleetIQ routinely certain Auto Scaling group properties in order to optimize the group's instances for low-cost game hosting. You can view the status of your game server groups in the GameLift Console. Game server group metrics and events are emitted to Amazon CloudWatch.

Prior creating a new game server group, you must set up the following:

  • An EC2 launch template. The template provides configuration settings for a set of EC2 instances and includes the game server build that you want to deploy and run on each instance. For more information on creating a launch template, see Launching an Instance from a Launch Template in the Amazon EC2 User Guide.

  • An IAM role. The role sets up limited access to your AWS account, allowing GameLift FleetIQ to create and manage the EC2 Auto Scaling group, get instance data, and emit metrics and events to CloudWatch. For more information on setting up an IAM permissions policy with principal access for GameLift, see Specifying a Principal in a Policy in the Amazon S3 Developer Guide.

To create a new game server group, provide a name and specify the IAM role and EC2 launch template. You also need to provide a list of instance types to be used in the group and set initial maximum and minimum limits on the group's instance count. You can optionally set an autoscaling policy with target tracking based on a GameLift FleetIQ metric.

Once the game server group and corresponding Auto Scaling group are created, you have full access to change the Auto Scaling group's configuration as needed. Keep in mind, however, that some properties are periodically updated by GameLift FleetIQ as it balances the group's instances based on availability and cost.

Options Hash (options):

  • :game_server_group_name (required, String)

    An identifier for the new game server group. This value is used to generate unique ARN identifiers for the EC2 Auto Scaling group and the GameLift FleetIQ game server group. The name must be unique per Region per AWS account.

  • :role_arn (required, String)

    The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) for an IAM role that allows Amazon GameLift to access your EC2 Auto Scaling groups. The submitted role is validated to ensure that it contains the necessary permissions for game server groups.

  • :min_size (required, Integer)

    The minimum number of instances allowed in the EC2 Auto Scaling group. During autoscaling events, GameLift FleetIQ and EC2 do not scale down the group below this minimum. In production, this value should be set to at least 1.

  • :max_size (required, Integer)

    The maximum number of instances allowed in the EC2 Auto Scaling group. During autoscaling events, GameLift FleetIQ and EC2 do not scale up the group above this maximum.

  • :launch_template (required, Types::LaunchTemplateSpecification)

    The EC2 launch template that contains configuration settings and game server code to be deployed to all instances in the game server group. You can specify the template using either the template name or ID. For help with creating a launch template, see Creating a Launch Template for an Auto Scaling Group in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide.

  • :instance_definitions (required, Array<Types::InstanceDefinition>)

    A set of EC2 instance types to use when creating instances in the group. The instance definitions must specify at least two different instance types that are supported by GameLift FleetIQ. For more information on instance types, see EC2 Instance Types in the Amazon EC2 User Guide.

  • :auto_scaling_policy (Types::GameServerGroupAutoScalingPolicy)

    Configuration settings to define a scaling policy for the Auto Scaling group that is optimized for game hosting. The scaling policy uses the metric \"PercentUtilizedGameServers\" to maintain a buffer of idle game servers that can immediately accommodate new games and players. Once the game server and Auto Scaling groups are created, you can update the scaling policy settings directly in Auto Scaling Groups.

  • :balancing_strategy (String)

    The fallback balancing method to use for the game server group when Spot instances in a Region become unavailable or are not viable for game hosting. Once triggered, this method remains active until Spot instances can once again be used. Method options include:

    • SPOT_ONLY -- If Spot instances are unavailable, the game server group provides no hosting capacity. No new instances are started, and the existing nonviable Spot instances are terminated (once current gameplay ends) and not replaced.

    • SPOT_PREFERRED -- If Spot instances are unavailable, the game server group continues to provide hosting capacity by using On-Demand instances. Existing nonviable Spot instances are terminated (once current gameplay ends) and replaced with new On-Demand instances.

  • :game_server_protection_policy (String)

    A flag that indicates whether instances in the game server group are protected from early termination. Unprotected instances that have active game servers running may by terminated during a scale-down event, causing players to be dropped from the game. Protected instances cannot be terminated while there are active game servers running. An exception to this is Spot Instances, which may be terminated by AWS regardless of protection status. This property is set to NO_PROTECTION by default.

  • :vpc_subnets (Array<String>)

    A list of virtual private cloud (VPC) subnets to use with instances in the game server group. By default, all GameLift FleetIQ-supported availability zones are used; this parameter allows you to specify VPCs that you\'ve set up.

  • :tags (Array<Types::Tag>)

    A list of labels to assign to the new game server group resource. Tags are developer-defined key-value pairs. Tagging AWS resources are useful for resource management, access management, and cost allocation. For more information, see Tagging AWS Resources in the AWS General Reference. Once the resource is created, you can use TagResource, UntagResource, and ListTagsForResource to add, remove, and view tags. The maximum tag limit may be lower than stated. See the AWS General Reference for actual tagging limits.

Returns:

#create_game_session(options = {}) ⇒ Types::CreateGameSessionOutput

Creates a multiplayer game session for players. This action creates a game session record and assigns an available server process in the specified fleet to host the game session. A fleet must have an ACTIVE status before a game session can be created in it.

To create a game session, specify either fleet ID or alias ID and indicate a maximum number of players to allow in the game session. You can also provide a name and game-specific properties for this game session. If successful, a GameSession object is returned containing the game session properties and other settings you specified.

Idempotency tokens. You can add a token that uniquely identifies game session requests. This is useful for ensuring that game session requests are idempotent. Multiple requests with the same idempotency token are processed only once; subsequent requests return the original result. All response values are the same with the exception of game session status, which may change.

Resource creation limits. If you are creating a game session on a fleet with a resource creation limit policy in force, then you must specify a creator ID. Without this ID, Amazon GameLift has no way to evaluate the policy for this new game session request.

Player acceptance policy. By default, newly created game sessions are open to new players. You can restrict new player access by using UpdateGameSession to change the game session's player session creation policy.

Game session logs. Logs are retained for all active game sessions for 14 days. To access the logs, call GetGameSessionLogUrl to download the log files.

Available in Amazon GameLift Local.

Options Hash (options):

  • :fleet_id (String)

    A unique identifier for a fleet to create a game session in. You can use either the fleet ID or ARN value. Each request must reference either a fleet ID or alias ID, but not both.

  • :alias_id (String)

    A unique identifier for an alias associated with the fleet to create a game session in. You can use either the alias ID or ARN value. Each request must reference either a fleet ID or alias ID, but not both.

  • :maximum_player_session_count (required, Integer)

    The maximum number of players that can be connected simultaneously to the game session.

  • :name (String)

    A descriptive label that is associated with a game session. Session names do not need to be unique.

  • :game_properties (Array<Types::GameProperty>)

    Set of custom properties for a game session, formatted as key:value pairs. These properties are passed to a game server process in the GameSession object with a request to start a new game session (see Start a Game Session).

  • :creator_id (String)

    A unique identifier for a player or entity creating the game session. This ID is used to enforce a resource protection policy (if one exists) that limits the number of concurrent active game sessions one player can have.

  • :game_session_id (String)

    This parameter is no longer preferred. Please use IdempotencyToken instead. Custom string that uniquely identifies a request for a new game session. Maximum token length is 48 characters. If provided, this string is included in the new game session\'s ID. (A game session ARN has the following format: arn:aws:gamelift:<region>::gamesession/<fleet ID>/<custom ID string or idempotency token>.)

  • :idempotency_token (String)

    Custom string that uniquely identifies a request for a new game session. Maximum token length is 48 characters. If provided, this string is included in the new game session\'s ID. (A game session ARN has the following format: arn:aws:gamelift:<region>::gamesession/<fleet ID>/<custom ID string or idempotency token>.) Idempotency tokens remain in use for 30 days after a game session has ended; game session objects are retained for this time period and then deleted.

  • :game_session_data (String)

    Set of custom game session properties, formatted as a single string value. This data is passed to a game server process in the GameSession object with a request to start a new game session (see Start a Game Session).

Returns:

#create_game_session_queue(options = {}) ⇒ Types::CreateGameSessionQueueOutput

Establishes a new queue for processing requests to place new game sessions. A queue identifies where new game sessions can be hosted -- by specifying a list of destinations (fleets or aliases) -- and how long requests can wait in the queue before timing out. You can set up a queue to try to place game sessions on fleets in multiple Regions. To add placement requests to a queue, call StartGameSessionPlacement and reference the queue name.

Destination order. When processing a request for a game session, Amazon GameLift tries each destination in order until it finds one with available resources to host the new game session. A queue's default order is determined by how destinations are listed. The default order is overridden when a game session placement request provides player latency information. Player latency information enables Amazon GameLift to prioritize destinations where players report the lowest average latency, as a result placing the new game session where the majority of players will have the best possible gameplay experience.

Player latency policies. For placement requests containing player latency information, use player latency policies to protect individual players from very high latencies. With a latency cap, even when a destination can deliver a low latency for most players, the game is not placed where any individual player is reporting latency higher than a policy's maximum. A queue can have multiple latency policies, which are enforced consecutively starting with the policy with the lowest latency cap. Use multiple policies to gradually relax latency controls; for example, you might set a policy with a low latency cap for the first 60 seconds, a second policy with a higher cap for the next 60 seconds, etc.

To create a new queue, provide a name, timeout value, a list of destinations and, if desired, a set of latency policies. If successful, a new queue object is returned.

Options Hash (options):

  • :name (required, String)

    A descriptive label that is associated with game session queue. Queue names must be unique within each Region.

  • :timeout_in_seconds (Integer)

    The maximum time, in seconds, that a new game session placement request remains in the queue. When a request exceeds this time, the game session placement changes to a TIMED_OUT status.

  • :player_latency_policies (Array<Types::PlayerLatencyPolicy>)

    A collection of latency policies to apply when processing game sessions placement requests with player latency information. Multiple policies are evaluated in order of the maximum latency value, starting with the lowest latency values. With just one policy, the policy is enforced at the start of the game session placement for the duration period. With multiple policies, each policy is enforced consecutively for its duration period. For example, a queue might enforce a 60-second policy followed by a 120-second policy, and then no policy for the remainder of the placement. A player latency policy must set a value for MaximumIndividualPlayerLatencyMilliseconds. If none is set, this API request fails.

  • :destinations (Array<Types::GameSessionQueueDestination>)

    A list of fleets that can be used to fulfill game session placement requests in the queue. Fleets are identified by either a fleet ARN or a fleet alias ARN. Destinations are listed in default preference order.

  • :tags (Array<Types::Tag>)

    A list of labels to assign to the new game session queue resource. Tags are developer-defined key-value pairs. Tagging AWS resources are useful for resource management, access management and cost allocation. For more information, see Tagging AWS Resources in the AWS General Reference. Once the resource is created, you can use TagResource, UntagResource, and ListTagsForResource to add, remove, and view tags. The maximum tag limit may be lower than stated.

#create_matchmaking_configuration(options = {}) ⇒ Types::CreateMatchmakingConfigurationOutput

Defines a new matchmaking configuration for use with FlexMatch. A matchmaking configuration sets out guidelines for matching players and getting the matches into games. You can set up multiple matchmaking configurations to handle the scenarios needed for your game. Each matchmaking ticket (StartMatchmaking or StartMatchBackfill) specifies a configuration for the match and provides player attributes to support the configuration being used.

To create a matchmaking configuration, at a minimum you must specify the following: configuration name; a rule set that governs how to evaluate players and find acceptable matches; a game session queue to use when placing a new game session for the match; and the maximum time allowed for a matchmaking attempt.

There are two ways to track the progress of matchmaking tickets: (1) polling ticket status with DescribeMatchmaking; or (2) receiving notifications with Amazon Simple Notification Service (SNS). To use notifications, you first need to set up an SNS topic to receive the notifications, and provide the topic ARN in the matchmaking configuration. Since notifications promise only "best effort" delivery, we recommend calling DescribeMatchmaking if no notifications are received within 30 seconds.

  • :request_timeout_seconds (required, Integer)

    The maximum duration, in seconds, that a matchmaking ticket can remain in process before timing out. Requests that fail due to timing out can be resubmitted as needed.

  • :acceptance_timeout_seconds (Integer)

    The length of time (in seconds) to wait for players to accept a proposed match. If any player rejects the match or fails to accept before the timeout, the ticket continues to look for an acceptable match.

  • :acceptance_required (required, Boolean)

    A flag that determines whether a match that was created with this configuration must be accepted by the matched players. To require acceptance, set to TRUE.

  • :rule_set_name (required, String)

    A unique identifier for a matchmaking rule set to use with this configuration. You can use either the rule set name or ARN value. A matchmaking configuration can only use rule sets that are defined in the same Region.

  • :notification_target (String)

    An SNS topic ARN that is set up to receive matchmaking notifications.

  • :additional_player_count (Integer)

    The number of player slots in a match to keep open for future players. For example, assume that the configuration\'s rule set specifies a match for a single 12-person team. If the additional player count is set to 2, only 10 players are initially selected for the match.

  • :custom_event_data (String)

    Information to be added to all events related to this matchmaking configuration.

  • :game_properties (Array<Types::GameProperty>)

    A set of custom properties for a game session, formatted as key-value pairs. These properties are passed to a game server process in the GameSession object with a request to start a new game session (see Start a Game Session). This information is added to the new GameSession object that is created for a successful match.

  • :game_session_data (String)

    A set of custom game session properties, formatted as a single string value. This data is passed to a game server process in the GameSession object with a request to start a new game session (see Start a Game Session). This information is added to the new GameSession object that is created for a successful match.

  • :backfill_mode (String)

    The method used to backfill game sessions that are created with this matchmaking configuration. Specify MANUAL when your game manages backfill requests manually or does not use the match backfill feature. Specify AUTOMATIC to have GameLift create a StartMatchBackfill request whenever a game session has one or more open slots. Learn more about manual and automatic backfill in Backfill Existing Games with FlexMatch.

  • :tags (Array<Types::Tag>)

    A list of labels to assign to the new matchmaking configuration resource. Tags are developer-defined key-value pairs. Tagging AWS resources are useful for resource management, access management and cost allocation. For more information, see Tagging AWS Resources in the AWS General Reference. Once the resource is created, you can use TagResource, UntagResource, and ListTagsForResource to add, remove, and view tags. The maximum tag limit may be lower than stated. See the AWS General Reference for actual tagging limits.

Returns:

#create_matchmaking_rule_set(options = {}) ⇒ Types::CreateMatchmakingRuleSetOutput

Creates a new rule set for FlexMatch matchmaking. A rule set describes the type of match to create, such as the number and size of teams. It also sets the parameters for acceptable player matches, such as minimum skill level or character type. A rule set is used by a MatchmakingConfiguration.

To create a matchmaking rule set, provide unique rule set name and the rule set body in JSON format. Rule sets must be defined in the same Region as the matchmaking configuration they are used with.

Since matchmaking rule sets cannot be edited, it is a good idea to check the rule set syntax using ValidateMatchmakingRuleSet before creating a new rule set.

#create_script(options = {}) ⇒ Types::CreateScriptOutput

Creates a new script record for your Realtime Servers script. Realtime scripts are JavaScript that provide configuration settings and optional custom game logic for your game. The script is deployed when you create a Realtime Servers fleet to host your game sessions. Script logic is executed during an active game session.

To create a new script record, specify a script name and provide the script file(s). The script files and all dependencies must be zipped into a single file. You can pull the zip file from either of these locations:

  • A locally available directory. Use the ZipFile parameter for this option.

  • An Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) bucket under your AWS account. Use the StorageLocation parameter for this option. You'll need to have an Identity Access Management (IAM) role that allows the Amazon GameLift service to access your S3 bucket.

If the call is successful, a new script record is created with a unique script ID. If the script file is provided as a local file, the file is uploaded to an Amazon GameLift-owned S3 bucket and the script record's storage location reflects this location. If the script file is provided as an S3 bucket, Amazon GameLift accesses the file at this storage location as needed for deployment.

#create_vpc_peering_authorization(options = {}) ⇒ Types::CreateVpcPeeringAuthorizationOutput

Requests authorization to create or delete a peer connection between the VPC for your Amazon GameLift fleet and a virtual private cloud (VPC) in your AWS account. VPC peering enables the game servers on your fleet to communicate directly with other AWS resources. Once you've received authorization, call CreateVpcPeeringConnection to establish the peering connection. For more information, see VPC Peering with Amazon GameLift Fleets.

You can peer with VPCs that are owned by any AWS account you have access to, including the account that you use to manage your Amazon GameLift fleets. You cannot peer with VPCs that are in different Regions.

To request authorization to create a connection, call this operation from the AWS account with the VPC that you want to peer to your Amazon GameLift fleet. For example, to enable your game servers to retrieve data from a DynamoDB table, use the account that manages that DynamoDB resource. Identify the following values: (1) The ID of the VPC that you want to peer with, and (2) the ID of the AWS account that you use to manage Amazon GameLift. If successful, VPC peering is authorized for the specified VPC.

To request authorization to delete a connection, call this operation from the AWS account with the VPC that is peered with your Amazon GameLift fleet. Identify the following values: (1) VPC ID that you want to delete the peering connection for, and (2) ID of the AWS account that you use to manage Amazon GameLift.

The authorization remains valid for 24 hours unless it is canceled by a call to DeleteVpcPeeringAuthorization. You must create or delete the peering connection while the authorization is valid.

Examples:

#create_vpc_peering_connection(options = {}) ⇒ Struct

Establishes a VPC peering connection between a virtual private cloud (VPC) in an AWS account with the VPC for your Amazon GameLift fleet. VPC peering enables the game servers on your fleet to communicate directly with other AWS resources. You can peer with VPCs in any AWS account that you have access to, including the account that you use to manage your Amazon GameLift fleets. You cannot peer with VPCs that are in different Regions. For more information, see VPC Peering with Amazon GameLift Fleets.

Before calling this operation to establish the peering connection, you first need to call CreateVpcPeeringAuthorization and identify the VPC you want to peer with. Once the authorization for the specified VPC is issued, you have 24 hours to establish the connection. These two operations handle all tasks necessary to peer the two VPCs, including acceptance, updating routing tables, etc.

To establish the connection, call this operation from the AWS account that is used to manage the Amazon GameLift fleets. Identify the following values: (1) The ID of the fleet you want to be enable a VPC peering connection for; (2) The AWS account with the VPC that you want to peer with; and (3) The ID of the VPC you want to peer with. This operation is asynchronous. If successful, a VpcPeeringConnection request is created. You can use continuous polling to track the request's status using DescribeVpcPeeringConnections, or by monitoring fleet events for success or failure using DescribeFleetEvents.

#delete_game_server_group(options = {}) ⇒ Types::DeleteGameServerGroupOutput

This action is part of Amazon GameLift FleetIQ with game server groups, which is in preview release and is subject to change.

Terminates a game server group and permanently deletes the game server group record. You have several options for how these resources are impacted when deleting the game server group. Depending on the type of delete action selected, this action may affect three types of resources: the game server group, the corresponding Auto Scaling group, and all game servers currently running in the group.

To delete a game server group, identify the game server group to delete and specify the type of delete action to initiate. Game server groups can only be deleted if they are in ACTIVE or ERROR status.

If the delete request is successful, a series of actions are kicked off. The game server group status is changed to DELETE_SCHEDULED, which prevents new game servers from being registered and stops autoscaling activity. Once all game servers in the game server group are de-registered, GameLift FleetIQ can begin deleting resources. If any of the delete actions fail, the game server group is placed in ERROR status.

GameLift FleetIQ emits delete events to Amazon CloudWatch.

Retrieves properties, including the protection policy in force, for one or more game sessions. This action can be used in several ways: (1) provide a GameSessionId or GameSessionArn to request details for a specific game session; (2) provide either a FleetId or an AliasId to request properties for all game sessions running on a fleet.

To get game session record(s), specify just one of the following: game session ID, fleet ID, or alias ID. You can filter this request by game session status. Use the pagination parameters to retrieve results as a set of sequential pages. If successful, a GameSessionDetail object is returned for each session matching the request.

#get_instance_access(options = {}) ⇒ Types::GetInstanceAccessOutput

Requests remote access to a fleet instance. Remote access is useful for debugging, gathering benchmarking data, or observing activity in real time.

To remotely access an instance, you need credentials that match the operating system of the instance. For a Windows instance, Amazon GameLift returns a user name and password as strings for use with a Windows Remote Desktop client. For a Linux instance, Amazon GameLift returns a user name and RSA private key, also as strings, for use with an SSH client. The private key must be saved in the proper format to a .pem file before using. If you're making this request using the AWS CLI, saving the secret can be handled as part of the GetInstanceAccess request, as shown in one of the examples for this action.

To request access to a specific instance, specify the IDs of both the instance and the fleet it belongs to. You can retrieve a fleet's instance IDs by calling DescribeInstances. If successful, an InstanceAccess object is returned that contains the instance's IP address and a set of credentials.

#put_scaling_policy(options = {}) ⇒ Types::PutScalingPolicyOutput

Creates or updates a scaling policy for a fleet. Scaling policies are used to automatically scale a fleet's hosting capacity to meet player demand. An active scaling policy instructs Amazon GameLift to track a fleet metric and automatically change the fleet's capacity when a certain threshold is reached. There are two types of scaling policies: target-based and rule-based. Use a target-based policy to quickly and efficiently manage fleet scaling; this option is the most commonly used. Use rule-based policies when you need to exert fine-grained control over auto-scaling.

Fleets can have multiple scaling policies of each type in force at the same time; you can have one target-based policy, one or multiple rule-based scaling policies, or both. We recommend caution, however, because multiple auto-scaling policies can have unintended consequences.

You can temporarily suspend all scaling policies for a fleet by calling StopFleetActions with the fleet action AUTO_SCALING. To resume scaling policies, call StartFleetActions with the same fleet action. To stop just one scaling policy--or to permanently remove it, you must delete the policy with DeleteScalingPolicy.

Learn more about how to work with auto-scaling in Set Up Fleet Automatic Scaling.

Target-based policy

A target-based policy tracks a single metric: PercentAvailableGameSessions. This metric tells us how much of a fleet's hosting capacity is ready to host game sessions but is not currently in use. This is the fleet's buffer; it measures the additional player demand that the fleet could handle at current capacity. With a target-based policy, you set your ideal buffer size and leave it to Amazon GameLift to take whatever action is needed to maintain that target.

For example, you might choose to maintain a 10% buffer for a fleet that has the capacity to host 100 simultaneous game sessions. This policy tells Amazon GameLift to take action whenever the fleet's available capacity falls below or rises above 10 game sessions. Amazon GameLift will start new instances or stop unused instances in order to return to the 10% buffer.

To create or update a target-based policy, specify a fleet ID and name, and set the policy type to "TargetBased". Specify the metric to track (PercentAvailableGameSessions) and reference a TargetConfiguration object with your desired buffer value. Exclude all other parameters. On a successful request, the policy name is returned. The scaling policy is automatically in force as soon as it's successfully created. If the fleet's auto-scaling actions are temporarily suspended, the new policy will be in force once the fleet actions are restarted.

Rule-based policy

A rule-based policy tracks specified fleet metric, sets a threshold value, and specifies the type of action to initiate when triggered. With a rule-based policy, you can select from several available fleet metrics. Each policy specifies whether to scale up or scale down (and by how much), so you need one policy for each type of action.

For example, a policy may make the following statement: "If the percentage of idle instances is greater than 20% for more than 15 minutes, then reduce the fleet capacity by 10%."

A policy's rule statement has the following structure:

If [MetricName] is [ComparisonOperator] [Threshold] for [EvaluationPeriods] minutes, then [ScalingAdjustmentType] to/by [ScalingAdjustment].

To implement the example, the rule statement would look like this:

If [PercentIdleInstances] is [GreaterThanThreshold] [20] for [15] minutes, then [PercentChangeInCapacity] to/by [10].

To create or update a scaling policy, specify a unique combination of name and fleet ID, and set the policy type to "RuleBased". Specify the parameter values for a policy rule statement. On a successful request, the policy name is returned. Scaling policies are automatically in force as soon as they're successfully created. If the fleet's auto-scaling actions are temporarily suspended, the new policy will be in force once the fleet actions are restarted.

Options Hash (options):

  • :name (required, String)

    A descriptive label that is associated with a scaling policy. Policy names do not need to be unique. A fleet can have only one scaling policy with the same name.

  • :fleet_id (required, String)

    A unique identifier for a fleet to apply this policy to. You can use either the fleet ID or ARN value. The fleet cannot be in any of the following statuses: ERROR or DELETING.

  • :scaling_adjustment (Integer)

    Amount of adjustment to make, based on the scaling adjustment type.

  • :scaling_adjustment_type (String)

    The type of adjustment to make to a fleet\'s instance count (see FleetCapacity):

    • ChangeInCapacity -- add (or subtract) the scaling adjustment value from the current instance count. Positive values scale up while negative values scale down.

    • ExactCapacity -- set the instance count to the scaling adjustment value.

    • PercentChangeInCapacity -- increase or reduce the current instance count by the scaling adjustment, read as a percentage. Positive values scale up while negative values scale down; for example, a value of \"-10\" scales the fleet down by 10%.

  • :threshold (Float)

    Metric value used to trigger a scaling event.

  • :comparison_operator (String)

    Comparison operator to use when measuring the metric against the threshold value.

  • :evaluation_periods (Integer)

    Length of time (in minutes) the metric must be at or beyond the threshold before a scaling event is triggered.

  • :metric_name (required, String)

    Name of the Amazon GameLift-defined metric that is used to trigger a scaling adjustment. For detailed descriptions of fleet metrics, see Monitor Amazon GameLift with Amazon CloudWatch.

    • ActivatingGameSessions -- Game sessions in the process of being created.

    • ActiveGameSessions -- Game sessions that are currently running.

#register_game_server(options = {}) ⇒ Types::RegisterGameServerOutput

This action is part of Amazon GameLift FleetIQ with game server groups, which is in preview release and is subject to change.

Creates a new game server resource and notifies GameLift FleetIQ that the game server is ready to host gameplay and players. This action is called by a game server process that is running on an instance in a game server group. Registering game servers enables GameLift FleetIQ to track available game servers and enables game clients and services to claim a game server for a new game session.

To register a game server, identify the game server group and instance where the game server is running, and provide a unique identifier for the game server. You can also include connection and game server data; when a game client or service requests a game server by calling ClaimGameServer, this information is returned in response.

Once a game server is successfully registered, it is put in status AVAILABLE. A request to register a game server may fail if the instance it is in the process of shutting down as part of instance rebalancing or scale-down activity.

#search_game_sessions(options = {}) ⇒ Types::SearchGameSessionsOutput

Retrieves all active game sessions that match a set of search criteria and sorts them in a specified order. You can search or sort by the following game session attributes:

  • gameSessionId -- A unique identifier for the game session. You can use either a GameSessionId or GameSessionArn value.

  • gameSessionName -- Name assigned to a game session. This value is set when requesting a new game session with CreateGameSession or updating with UpdateGameSession. Game session names do not need to be unique to a game session.

  • gameSessionProperties -- Custom data defined in a game session's GameProperty parameter. GameProperty values are stored as key:value pairs; the filter expression must indicate the key and a string to search the data values for. For example, to search for game sessions with custom data containing the key:value pair "gameMode:brawl", specify the following: gameSessionProperties.gameMode = "brawl". All custom data values are searched as strings.

  • maximumSessions -- Maximum number of player sessions allowed for a game session. This value is set when requesting a new game session with CreateGameSession or updating with UpdateGameSession.

  • creationTimeMillis -- Value indicating when a game session was created. It is expressed in Unix time as milliseconds.

  • playerSessionCount -- Number of players currently connected to a game session. This value changes rapidly as players join the session or drop out.

  • hasAvailablePlayerSessions -- Boolean value indicating whether a game session has reached its maximum number of players. It is highly recommended that all search requests include this filter attribute to optimize search performance and return only sessions that players can join.

Returned values for playerSessionCount and hasAvailablePlayerSessions change quickly as players join sessions and others drop out. Results should be considered a snapshot in time. Be sure to refresh search results often, and handle sessions that fill up before a player can join.

To search or sort, specify either a fleet ID or an alias ID, and provide a search filter expression, a sort expression, or both. If successful, a collection of GameSession objects matching the request is returned. Use the pagination parameters to retrieve results as a set of sequential pages.

You can search for game sessions one fleet at a time only. To find game sessions across multiple fleets, you must search each fleet separately and combine the results. This search feature finds only game sessions that are in ACTIVE status. To locate games in statuses other than active, use DescribeGameSessionDetails.

Options Hash (options):

  • :fleet_id (String)

    A unique identifier for a fleet to search for active game sessions. You can use either the fleet ID or ARN value. Each request must reference either a fleet ID or alias ID, but not both.

  • :alias_id (String)

    A unique identifier for an alias associated with the fleet to search for active game sessions. You can use either the alias ID or ARN value. Each request must reference either a fleet ID or alias ID, but not both.

  • :filter_expression (String)

    String containing the search criteria for the session search. If no filter expression is included, the request returns results for all game sessions in the fleet that are in ACTIVE status.

    A filter expression can contain one or multiple conditions. Each condition consists of the following:

    • Operand -- Name of a game session attribute. Valid values are gameSessionName, gameSessionId, gameSessionProperties, maximumSessions, creationTimeMillis, playerSessionCount, hasAvailablePlayerSessions.

    • Comparator -- Valid comparators are: =, <>, <, >, <=, >=.

    • Value -- Value to be searched for. Values may be numbers, boolean values (true/false) or strings depending on the operand. String values are case sensitive and must be enclosed in single quotes. Special characters must be escaped. Boolean and string values can only be used with the comparators = and <>. For example, the following filter expression searches on gameSessionName: \"FilterExpression": "gameSessionName = 'Matt\\'s Awesome Game 1'".

    To chain multiple conditions in a single expression, use the logical keywords AND, OR, and NOT and parentheses as needed. For example: x AND y AND NOT z, NOT (x OR y).

    Session search evaluates conditions from left to right using the following precedence rules:

    1. =, <>, <, >, <=, >=

    2. Parentheses

    3. NOT

    4. AND

    5. OR

    For example, this filter expression retrieves game sessions hosting at least ten players that have an open player slot: "maximumSessions>=10 AND hasAvailablePlayerSessions=true".

  • :sort_expression (String)

    Instructions on how to sort the search results. If no sort expression is included, the request returns results in random order. A sort expression consists of the following elements:

    • Operand -- Name of a game session attribute. Valid values are gameSessionName, gameSessionId, gameSessionProperties, maximumSessions, creationTimeMillis, playerSessionCount, hasAvailablePlayerSessions.

    • Order -- Valid sort orders are ASC (ascending) and DESC (descending).

    For example, this sort expression returns the oldest active sessions first: "SortExpression": "creationTimeMillis ASC". Results with a null value for the sort operand are returned at the end of the list.

  • :limit (Integer)

    The maximum number of results to return. Use this parameter with NextToken to get results as a set of sequential pages. The maximum number of results returned is 20, even if this value is not set or is set higher than 20.

  • :next_token (String)

    Token that indicates the start of the next sequential page of results. Use the token that is returned with a previous call to this action. To start at the beginning of the result set, do not specify a value.

Returns:

#start_fleet_actions(options = {}) ⇒ Struct

Resumes activity on a fleet that was suspended with StopFleetActions. Currently, this operation is used to restart a fleet's auto-scaling activity.

To start fleet actions, specify the fleet ID and the type of actions to restart. When auto-scaling fleet actions are restarted, Amazon GameLift once again initiates scaling events as triggered by the fleet's scaling policies. If actions on the fleet were never stopped, this operation will have no effect. You can view a fleet's stopped actions using DescribeFleetAttributes.

#start_game_session_placement(options = {}) ⇒ Types::StartGameSessionPlacementOutput

Places a request for a new game session in a queue (see CreateGameSessionQueue). When processing a placement request, Amazon GameLift searches for available resources on the queue's destinations, scanning each until it finds resources or the placement request times out.

A game session placement request can also request player sessions. When a new game session is successfully created, Amazon GameLift creates a player session for each player included in the request.

When placing a game session, by default Amazon GameLift tries each fleet in the order they are listed in the queue configuration. Ideally, a queue's destinations are listed in preference order.

Alternatively, when requesting a game session with players, you can also provide latency data for each player in relevant Regions. Latency data indicates the performance lag a player experiences when connected to a fleet in the Region. Amazon GameLift uses latency data to reorder the list of destinations to place the game session in a Region with minimal lag. If latency data is provided for multiple players, Amazon GameLift calculates each Region's average lag for all players and reorders to get the best game play across all players.

To place a new game session request, specify the following:

  • The queue name and a set of game session properties and settings

  • A unique ID (such as a UUID) for the placement. You use this ID to track the status of the placement request

  • (Optional) A set of player data and a unique player ID for each player that you are joining to the new game session (player data is optional, but if you include it, you must also provide a unique ID for each player)

  • Latency data for all players (if you want to optimize game play for the players)

If successful, a new game session placement is created.

To track the status of a placement request, call DescribeGameSessionPlacement and check the request's status. If the status is FULFILLED, a new game session has been created and a game session ARN and Region are referenced. If the placement request times out, you can resubmit the request or retry it with a different queue.

#start_match_backfill(options = {}) ⇒ Types::StartMatchBackfillOutput

Finds new players to fill open slots in an existing game session. This operation can be used to add players to matched games that start with fewer than the maximum number of players or to replace players when they drop out. By backfilling with the same matchmaker used to create the original match, you ensure that new players meet the match criteria and maintain a consistent experience throughout the game session. You can backfill a match anytime after a game session has been created.

To request a match backfill, specify a unique ticket ID, the existing game session's ARN, a matchmaking configuration, and a set of data that describes all current players in the game session. If successful, a match backfill ticket is created and returned with status set to QUEUED. The ticket is placed in the matchmaker's ticket pool and processed. Track the status of the ticket to respond as needed.

The process of finding backfill matches is essentially identical to the initial matchmaking process. The matchmaker searches the pool and groups tickets together to form potential matches, allowing only one backfill ticket per potential match. Once the a match is formed, the matchmaker creates player sessions for the new players. All tickets in the match are updated with the game session's connection information, and the GameSession object is updated to include matchmaker data on the new players. For more detail on how match backfill requests are processed, see How Amazon GameLift FlexMatch Works.

#start_matchmaking(options = {}) ⇒ Types::StartMatchmakingOutput

Uses FlexMatch to create a game match for a group of players based on custom matchmaking rules, and starts a new game for the matched players. Each matchmaking request specifies the type of match to build (team configuration, rules for an acceptable match, etc.). The request also specifies the players to find a match for and where to host the new game session for optimal performance. A matchmaking request might start with a single player or a group of players who want to play together. FlexMatch finds additional players as needed to fill the match. Match type, rules, and the queue used to place a new game session are defined in a MatchmakingConfiguration.

To start matchmaking, provide a unique ticket ID, specify a matchmaking configuration, and include the players to be matched. You must also include a set of player attributes relevant for the matchmaking configuration. If successful, a matchmaking ticket is returned with status set to QUEUED. Track the status of the ticket to respond as needed and acquire game session connection information for successfully completed matches.

Tracking ticket status -- A couple of options are available for tracking the status of matchmaking requests:

  • Polling -- Call DescribeMatchmaking. This operation returns the full ticket object, including current status and (for completed tickets) game session connection info. We recommend polling no more than once every 10 seconds.

  • Notifications -- Get event notifications for changes in ticket status using Amazon Simple Notification Service (SNS). Notifications are easy to set up (see CreateMatchmakingConfiguration) and typically deliver match status changes faster and more efficiently than polling. We recommend that you use polling to back up to notifications (since delivery is not guaranteed) and call DescribeMatchmaking only when notifications are not received within 30 seconds.

Processing a matchmaking request -- FlexMatch handles a matchmaking request as follows:

  1. Your client code submits a StartMatchmaking request for one or more players and tracks the status of the request ticket.

  2. FlexMatch uses this ticket and others in process to build an acceptable match. When a potential match is identified, all tickets in the proposed match are advanced to the next status.

  3. If the match requires player acceptance (set in the matchmaking configuration), the tickets move into status REQUIRES_ACCEPTANCE. This status triggers your client code to solicit acceptance from all players in every ticket involved in the match, and then call AcceptMatch for each player. If any player rejects or fails to accept the match before a specified timeout, the proposed match is dropped (see AcceptMatch for more details).

  4. Once a match is proposed and accepted, the matchmaking tickets move into status PLACING. FlexMatch locates resources for a new game session using the game session queue (set in the matchmaking configuration) and creates the game session based on the match data.

  5. When the match is successfully placed, the matchmaking tickets move into COMPLETED status. Connection information (including game session endpoint and player session) is added to the matchmaking tickets. Matched players can use the connection information to join the game.

#stop_fleet_actions(options = {}) ⇒ Struct

Suspends activity on a fleet. Currently, this operation is used to stop a fleet's auto-scaling activity. It is used to temporarily stop triggering scaling events. The policies can be retained and auto-scaling activity can be restarted using StartFleetActions. You can view a fleet's stopped actions using DescribeFleetAttributes.

To stop fleet actions, specify the fleet ID and the type of actions to suspend. When auto-scaling fleet actions are stopped, Amazon GameLift no longer initiates scaling events except in response to manual changes using UpdateFleetCapacity.

#suspend_game_server_group(options = {}) ⇒ Types::SuspendGameServerGroupOutput

This action is part of Amazon GameLift FleetIQ with game server groups, which is in preview release and is subject to change.

Temporarily stops activity on a game server group without terminating instances or the game server group. Activity can be restarted by calling ResumeGameServerGroup. Activities that can suspended are:

  • Instance type replacement. This activity evaluates the current Spot viability of all instance types that are defined for the game server group. It updates the Auto Scaling group to remove nonviable Spot instance types (which have a higher chance of game server interruptions) and rebalances capacity across the remaining viable Spot instance types. When this activity is suspended, the Auto Scaling group continues with its current balance, regardless of viability. Instance protection, utilization metrics, and capacity autoscaling activities continue to be active.

To suspend activity, specify a game server group ARN and the type of activity to be suspended.

#update_fleet_capacity(options = {}) ⇒ Types::UpdateFleetCapacityOutput

Updates capacity settings for a fleet. Use this action to specify the number of EC2 instances (hosts) that you want this fleet to contain. Before calling this action, you may want to call DescribeEC2InstanceLimits to get the maximum capacity based on the fleet's EC2 instance type.

Specify minimum and maximum number of instances. Amazon GameLift will not change fleet capacity to values fall outside of this range. This is particularly important when using auto-scaling (see PutScalingPolicy) to allow capacity to adjust based on player demand while imposing limits on automatic adjustments.

To update fleet capacity, specify the fleet ID and the number of instances you want the fleet to host. If successful, Amazon GameLift starts or terminates instances so that the fleet's active instance count matches the desired instance count. You can view a fleet's current capacity information by calling DescribeFleetCapacity. If the desired instance count is higher than the instance type's limit, the "Limit Exceeded" exception occurs.

#update_game_server(options = {}) ⇒ Types::UpdateGameServerOutput

This action is part of Amazon GameLift FleetIQ with game server groups, which is in preview release and is subject to change.

Updates information about a registered game server. This action is called by a game server process that is running on an instance in a game server group. There are three reasons to update game server information: (1) to change the utilization status of the game server, (2) to report game server health status, and (3) to change game server metadata. A registered game server should regularly report health and should update utilization status when it is supporting gameplay so that GameLift FleetIQ can accurately track game server availability. You can make all three types of updates in the same request.

  • To update the game server's utilization status, identify the game server and game server group and specify the current utilization status. Use this status to identify when game servers are currently hosting games and when they are available to be claimed.

  • To report health status, identify the game server and game server group and set health check to HEALTHY. If a game server does not report health status for a certain length of time, the game server is no longer considered healthy and will be eventually de-registered from the game server group to avoid affecting utilization metrics. The best practice is to report health every 60 seconds.

  • To change game server metadata, provide updated game server data and custom sort key values.

Once a game server is successfully updated, the relevant statuses and timestamps are updated.

Options Hash (options):

  • :game_server_group_name (required, String)

    The unique identifier of the game server group to update. Use either the GameServerGroup name or ARN value.

  • :role_arn (String)

    The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) for an IAM role that allows Amazon GameLift to access your EC2 Auto Scaling groups. The submitted role is validated to ensure that it contains the necessary permissions for game server groups.

  • :instance_definitions (Array<Types::InstanceDefinition>)

    An updated list of EC2 instance types to use when creating instances in the group. The instance definition must specify instance types that are supported by GameLift FleetIQ, and must include at least two instance types. This updated list replaces the entire current list of instance definitions for the game server group. For more information on instance types, see EC2 Instance Types in the Amazon EC2 User Guide..

  • :game_server_protection_policy (String)

    A flag that indicates whether instances in the game server group are protected from early termination. Unprotected instances that have active game servers running may by terminated during a scale-down event, causing players to be dropped from the game. Protected instances cannot be terminated while there are active game servers running. An exception to this is Spot Instances, which may be terminated by AWS regardless of protection status. This property is set to NO_PROTECTION by default.

  • :balancing_strategy (String)

    The fallback balancing method to use for the game server group when Spot instances in a Region become unavailable or are not viable for game hosting. Once triggered, this method remains active until Spot instances can once again be used. Method options include:

    • SPOT_ONLY -- If Spot instances are unavailable, the game server group provides no hosting capacity. No new instances are started, and the existing nonviable Spot instances are terminated (once current gameplay ends) and not replaced.

    • SPOT_PREFERRED -- If Spot instances are unavailable, the game server group continues to provide hosting capacity by using On-Demand instances. Existing nonviable Spot instances are terminated (once current gameplay ends) and replaced with new On-Demand instances.

#update_runtime_configuration(options = {}) ⇒ Types::UpdateRuntimeConfigurationOutput

Updates the current runtime configuration for the specified fleet, which tells Amazon GameLift how to launch server processes on instances in the fleet. You can update a fleet's runtime configuration at any time after the fleet is created; it does not need to be in an ACTIVE status.

To update runtime configuration, specify the fleet ID and provide a RuntimeConfiguration object with an updated set of server process configurations.

Each instance in a Amazon GameLift fleet checks regularly for an updated runtime configuration and changes how it launches server processes to comply with the latest version. Existing server processes are not affected by the update; runtime configuration changes are applied gradually as existing processes shut down and new processes are launched during Amazon GameLift's normal process recycling activity.

#wait_until(waiter_name, params = {}) {|waiter| ... } ⇒ Boolean

Waiters polls an API operation until a resource enters a desired state.

Basic Usage

Waiters will poll until they are succesful, they fail by entering a terminal state, or until a maximum number of attempts are made.

# polls in a loop, sleeping between attempts client.waiter_until(waiter_name, params)

Configuration

You can configure the maximum number of polling attempts, and the delay (in seconds) between each polling attempt. You configure waiters by passing a block to #wait_until:

# poll for ~25 seconds
client.wait_until(...) do |w|
  w.max_attempts = 5
  w.delay = 5
end

Callbacks

You can be notified before each polling attempt and before each delay. If you throw :success or :failure from these callbacks, it will terminate the waiter.

started_at = Time.now
client.wait_until(...) do |w|

  # disable max attempts
  w.max_attempts = nil

  # poll for 1 hour, instead of a number of attempts
  w.before_wait do |attempts, response|
    throw :failure if Time.now - started_at > 3600
  end

end

Handling Errors

When a waiter is successful, it returns true. When a waiter fails, it raises an error. All errors raised extend from Waiters::Errors::WaiterFailed.

begin
  client.wait_until(...)
rescue Aws::Waiters::Errors::WaiterFailed
  # resource did not enter the desired state in time
end

Parameters:

  • waiter_name (Symbol)

    The name of the waiter. See #waiter_names for a full list of supported waiters.

  • params (Hash) (defaults to: {})

    Additional request parameters. See the #waiter_names for a list of supported waiters and what request they call. The called request determines the list of accepted parameters.

Yield Parameters:

Returns:

  • (Boolean)

    Returns true if the waiter was successful.

Raises:

  • (Errors::FailureStateError)

    Raised when the waiter terminates because the waiter has entered a state that it will not transition out of, preventing success.

  • (Errors::TooManyAttemptsError)

    Raised when the configured maximum number of attempts have been made, and the waiter is not yet successful.

  • (Errors::UnexpectedError)

    Raised when an error is encounted while polling for a resource that is not expected.

  • (Errors::NoSuchWaiterError)

    Raised when you request to wait for an unknown state.

#waiter_namesArray<Symbol>

Returns the list of supported waiters. The following table lists the supported waiters and the client method they call:

Waiter NameClient MethodDefault Delay:Default Max Attempts:

Returns:

  • (Array<Symbol>)

    the list of supported waiters.
