aws gamelift claim-game-server

This operation is used with the GameLift FleetIQ solution and game server groups. Locates an available game server and temporarily reserves it to host gameplay and players. This operation is called from a game client or client service (such as a matchmaker) to request hosting resources for a new game session. In response, GameLift FleetIQ locates an available game server, places it in CLAIMED status for 60 seconds, and returns connection information that players can use to connect to the game server. To claim a game server, identify a game server group. You can also specify a game server ID, although this approach bypasses GameLift FleetIQ placement optimization. Optionally, include game data to pass to the game server at the start of a game session, such as a game map or player information. 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 gives the game server time to update its status to UTILIZED (using UpdateGameServer) once players join. 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. The claim time period is a fixed value and is not configurable. If you try to claim a specific game server, this request will fail in the following cases: If the game server utilization status is UTILIZED. If the game server claim status is CLAIMED. When claiming a specific game server, this request will succeed even if the game server is running on an instance in DRAINING status. To avoid this, first check the instance status by calling DescribeGameServerInstances.

--game-server-group-name <string>A unique identifier for the game server group where the game server is running. Use either the GameServerGroup name or ARN value. If you are not specifying a game server to claim, this value identifies where you want GameLift FleetIQ to look for an available game server to claim
--game-server-id <string>A custom string that uniquely identifies the game server to claim. If this parameter is left empty, GameLift FleetIQ searches for an available game server in the specified game server group
--game-server-data <string>A set of custom game server properties, formatted as a single string value. This data is passed to a game client or service when it requests information on game servers using ListGameServers or ClaimGameServer
--cli-input-json <string>Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by ``--generate-cli-skeleton``. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally
--generate-cli-skeleton <string>Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value ``input``, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for ``--cli-input-json``. If provided with the value ``output``, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command
