AWS SDK Version 3 for .NET
API Reference

AWS services or capabilities described in AWS Documentation may vary by region/location. Click Getting Started with Amazon AWS to see specific differences applicable to the China (Beijing) Region.

Retrieves a set of one or more game sessions in a specific fleet location. You can optionally filter the results by current game session status.

This operation can be used in the following ways:

Use the pagination parameters to retrieve results as a set of sequential pages.

If successful, a GameSession object is returned for each game session that matches the request.

This operation is not designed to be continually called to track game session status. This practice can cause you to exceed your API limit, which results in errors. Instead, you must configure an Amazon Simple Notification Service (SNS) topic to receive notifications from FlexMatch or queues. Continuously polling with DescribeGameSessions should only be used for games in development with low game session usage.

Available in Amazon GameLift Local.
