[ aws . gamelift ]



Removes locations from a multi-location fleet. When deleting a location, all game server process and all instances that are still active in the location are shut down.

To delete fleet locations, identify the fleet ID and provide a list of the locations to be deleted.

If successful, GameLift sets the location status to DELETING , and begins to shut down existing server processes and terminate instances in each location being deleted. When completed, the location status changes to TERMINATED .

--fleet-id (string)

A unique identifier for the fleet to delete locations for. You can use either the fleet ID or ARN value.

--locations (list)

The list of fleet locations to delete. Specify locations in the form of an AWS Region code, such as us-west-2 .

--cli-input-json | --cli-input-yaml (string) Reads arguments from the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, those 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. This may not be specified along with --cli-input-yaml.

--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. Similarly, if provided yaml-input it will print a sample input YAML that can be used with --cli-input-yaml. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

FleetId -> (string)

A unique identifier for the fleet that location attributes are being deleted for.

FleetArn -> (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN ) that is assigned to a GameLift fleet resource and uniquely identifies it. ARNs are unique across all Regions. Format is arn:aws:gamelift:<region>::fleet/fleet-a1234567-b8c9-0d1e-2fa3-b45c6d7e8912 .

LocationStates -> (list)

The remote locations that are being deleted, with each location status set to DELETING .


A fleet location and its life-cycle state. A location state object might be used to describe a fleet’s remote location or home Region. Life-cycle state tracks the progress of launching the first instance in a new location and preparing it for game hosting, and then removing all instances and deleting the location from the fleet.
