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, and sets the parameters for acceptable player matches, such as minimum skill level or character type. Rule sets are used in matchmaking configurations, which define how matchmaking requests are handled. Each MatchmakingConfiguration uses one rule set; you can set up multiple rule sets to handle the scenarios that suit your game (such as for different game modes), and create a separate matchmaking configuration for each rule set. See additional information on rule set content in the MatchmakingRuleSet structure. For help creating rule sets, including useful examples, see the topic Adding FlexMatch to Your Game.

Once created, matchmaking rule sets cannot be changed or deleted, so we recommend checking the rule set syntax using ValidateMatchmakingRuleSet before creating the rule set.

To create a matchmaking rule set, provide the set of rules and a unique name. Rule sets must be defined in the same region as the matchmaking configuration they will be used with. Rule sets cannot be edited or deleted. If you need to change a rule set, create a new one with the necessary edits and then update matchmaking configurations to use the new rule set.
