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

When setting up a new game build for GameLift, we recommend using the 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.

You can use the operation in the following scenarios:

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.
