[ aws . gamelift ]



Retrieves a fleet’s inbound connection permissions. Connection permissions specify IP addresses and port settings that incoming traffic can use to access server processes in the fleet. Game server processes that are running in the fleet must use a port that falls within this range. To connect to game server processes on a container fleet, the port settings should include one or more of the fleet’s connection ports.

Use this operation in the following ways:

  • To retrieve the port settings for a fleet, identify the fleet’s unique identifier.
  • To check the status of recent updates to a fleet remote location, specify the fleet ID and a location. Port setting updates can take time to propagate across all locations.

If successful, a set of IpPermission objects is returned for the requested fleet ID. When specifying a location, this operation returns a pending status. If the requested fleet has been deleted, the result set is empty.

--fleet-id (string)

A unique identifier for the fleet to retrieve port settings for. You can use either the fleet ID or ARN value.

--location (string)

A remote location to check for status of port setting updates. Use the Amazon Web Services Region code format, 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. The generated JSON skeleton is not stable between versions of the AWS CLI and there are no backwards compatibility guarantees in the JSON skeleton generated.

Global Options

--debug (boolean)

Turn on debug logging.

--endpoint-url (string)

Override command’s default URL with the given URL.

--no-verify-ssl (boolean)

By default, the AWS CLI uses SSL when communicating with AWS services. For each SSL connection, the AWS CLI will verify SSL certificates. This option overrides the default behavior of verifying SSL certificates.

--no-paginate (boolean)

Disable automatic pagination.

--output (string)

The formatting style for command output.

  • json
  • text
  • table
  • yaml
  • yaml-stream

--query (string)

A JMESPath query to use in filtering the response data.

--profile (string)

Use a specific profile from your credential file.

--region (string)

The region to use. Overrides config/env settings.

--version (string)

Display the version of this tool.

--color (string)

Turn on/off color output.

  • on
  • off
  • auto

--no-sign-request (boolean)

Do not sign requests. Credentials will not be loaded if this argument is provided.

--ca-bundle (string)

The CA certificate bundle to use when verifying SSL certificates. Overrides config/env settings.

--cli-read-timeout (int)

The maximum socket read time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket read will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

--cli-connect-timeout (int)

The maximum socket connect time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket connect will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

--cli-binary-format (string)

The formatting style to be used for binary blobs. The default format is base64. The base64 format expects binary blobs to be provided as a base64 encoded string. The raw-in-base64-out format preserves compatibility with AWS CLI V1 behavior and binary values must be passed literally. When providing contents from a file that map to a binary blob fileb:// will always be treated as binary and use the file contents directly regardless of the cli-binary-format setting. When using file:// the file contents will need to properly formatted for the configured cli-binary-format.

  • base64
  • raw-in-base64-out

--no-cli-pager (boolean)

Disable cli pager for output.

--cli-auto-prompt (boolean)

Automatically prompt for CLI input parameters.

--no-cli-auto-prompt (boolean)

Disable automatically prompt for CLI input parameters.



To use the following examples, you must have the AWS CLI installed and configured. See the Getting started guide in the AWS CLI User Guide for more information.

Unless otherwise stated, all examples have unix-like quotation rules. These examples will need to be adapted to your terminal’s quoting rules. See Using quotation marks with strings in the AWS CLI User Guide .

To view inbound connection permissions for a fleet

The following describe-fleet-port-settings example retrieves connection settings for a specified fleet.

aws gamelift describe-fleet-port-settings \
    --fleet-id arn:aws:gamelift:us-west-2::fleet/fleet-a1b2c3d4-5678-90ab-cdef-EXAMPLE11111

FleetId -> (string)

A unique identifier for the fleet that was requested.

FleetArn -> (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN ) that is assigned to a Amazon 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 .

InboundPermissions -> (list)

The port settings for the requested fleet ID.


A range of IP addresses and port settings that allow inbound traffic to connect to processes on an instance in a fleet. Processes are assigned an IP address/port number combination, which must fall into the fleet’s allowed ranges. For container fleets, the port settings must use the same port numbers as the fleet’s connection ports.

For Realtime Servers fleets, Amazon GameLift automatically opens two port ranges, one for TCP messaging and one for UDP.

FromPort -> (integer)

A starting value for a range of allowed port numbers.

For fleets using Linux builds, only ports 22 and 1026-60000 are valid.

For fleets using Windows builds, only ports 1026-60000 are valid.

ToPort -> (integer)

An ending value for a range of allowed port numbers. Port numbers are end-inclusive. This value must be equal to or greater than FromPort .

For fleets using Linux builds, only ports 22 and 1026-60000 are valid.

For fleets using Windows builds, only ports 1026-60000 are valid.

IpRange -> (string)

A range of allowed IP addresses. This value must be expressed in CIDR notation. Example: “[subnet mask] “ or optionally the shortened version “[subnet mask] “.

Protocol -> (string)

The network communication protocol used by the fleet.

UpdateStatus -> (string)

The current status of updates to the fleet’s port settings in the requested fleet location. A status of PENDING_UPDATE indicates that an update was requested for the fleet but has not yet been completed for the location.

Location -> (string)

The requested fleet location, expressed as an Amazon Web Services Region code, such as us-west-2 .
