describe-game-session-placement --placement-id <value> [--cli-input-json | --cli-input-yaml] [--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]
A unique identifier for a game session placement to retrieve.
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
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.

GameSessionPlacement -> (structure)
Object that describes the requested game session placement.
PlacementId -> (string)
A unique identifier for a game session placement.
GameSessionQueueName -> (string)
A descriptive label that is associated with game session queue. Queue names must be unique within each Region.
Status -> (string)
Current status of the game session placement request.
PENDING – The placement request is currently in the queue waiting to be processed.
FULFILLED – A new game session and player sessions (if requested) have been successfully created. Values for GameSessionArn and GameSessionRegion are available.
CANCELLED – The placement request was canceled with a call to StopGameSessionPlacement .
TIMED_OUT – A new game session was not successfully created before the time limit expired. You can resubmit the placement request as needed.
FAILED – GameLift is not able to complete the process of placing the game session. Common reasons are the game session terminated before the placement process was completed, or an unexpected internal error.
GameProperties -> (list)
A set of custom properties for a game session, formatted as key:value pairs. These properties are passed to a game server process in the GameSession object with a request to start a new game session (see Start a Game Session ).
Set of key-value pairs that contain information about a game session. When included in a game session request, these properties communicate details to be used when setting up the new game session. For example, a game property might specify a game mode, level, or map. Game properties are passed to the game server process when initiating a new game session. For more information, see the GameLift Developer Guide .
Key -> (string)
The game property identifier.
Value -> (string)
The game property value.
MaximumPlayerSessionCount -> (integer)
The maximum number of players that can be connected simultaneously to the game session.
GameSessionName -> (string)
A descriptive label that is associated with a game session. Session names do not need to be unique.
GameSessionId -> (string)
A unique identifier for the game session. This value is set once the new game session is placed (placement status is
GameSessionArn -> (string)
Identifier for the game session created by this placement request. This value is set once the new game session is placed (placement status is
FULFILLED). This identifier is unique across all Regions. You can use this value as a
GameSessionIdvalue as needed.
GameSessionRegion -> (string)
Name of the Region where the game session created by this placement request is running. This value is set once the new game session is placed (placement status is
PlayerLatencies -> (list)
A set of values, expressed in milliseconds, that indicates the amount of latency that a player experiences when connected to AWS Regions.
Regional latency information for a player, used when requesting a new game session with StartGameSessionPlacement . This value indicates the amount of time lag that exists when the player is connected to a fleet in the specified Region. The relative difference between a player’s latency values for multiple Regions are used to determine which fleets are best suited to place a new game session for the player.
PlayerId -> (string)
A unique identifier for a player associated with the latency data.
RegionIdentifier -> (string)
Name of the Region that is associated with the latency value.
LatencyInMilliseconds -> (float)
Amount of time that represents the time lag experienced by the player when connected to the specified Region.
StartTime -> (timestamp)
Time stamp indicating when this request was placed in the queue. Format is a number expressed in Unix time as milliseconds (for example
EndTime -> (timestamp)
Time stamp indicating when this request was completed, canceled, or timed out.
IpAddress -> (string)
The IP address of the game session. To connect to a GameLift game server, an app needs both the IP address and port number. This value is set once the new game session is placed (placement status is
DnsName -> (string)
The DNS identifier assigned to the instance that is running the game session. Values have the following format:
<unique identifier>.<region identifier>.amazongamelift.com.
ec2-<unique identifier>.compute.amazonaws.com. (See Amazon EC2 Instance IP Addressing .)
When connecting to a game session that is running on a TLS-enabled fleet, you must use the DNS name, not the IP address.
Port -> (integer)
The port number for the game session. To connect to a GameLift game server, an app needs both the IP address and port number. This value is set once the new game session is placed (placement status is
PlacedPlayerSessions -> (list)
A collection of information on player sessions created in response to the game session placement request. These player sessions are created only once a new game session is successfully placed (placement status is
FULFILLED). This information includes the player ID (as provided in the placement request) and the corresponding player session ID. Retrieve full player sessions by calling DescribePlayerSessions with the player session ID.
Information about a player session that was created as part of a StartGameSessionPlacement request. This object contains only the player ID and player session ID. To retrieve full details on a player session, call DescribePlayerSessions with the player session ID.

PlayerId -> (string)
A unique identifier for a player that is associated with this player session.
PlayerSessionId -> (string)
A unique identifier for a player session.
GameSessionData -> (string)
A set of custom game session properties, formatted as a single string value. This data is passed to a game server process in the GameSession object with a request to start a new game session (see Start a Game Session ).
