list-aliases

Description

Retrieves all aliases for this AWS account. You can filter the result set by alias name and/or routing strategy type. Use the pagination parameters to retrieve results in sequential pages.

Note

Returned aliases are not listed in any particular order.

  • CreateAlias

  • ListAliases

  • DescribeAlias

  • UpdateAlias

  • DeleteAlias

See ‘aws help’ for descriptions of global parameters.

list-aliases is a paginated operation. Multiple API calls may be issued in order to retrieve the entire data set of results. You can disable pagination by providing the --no-paginate argument. When using --output text and the --query argument on a paginated response, the --query argument must extract data from the results of the following query expressions: Aliases

Synopsis

  list-aliases
[--routing-strategy-type <value>]
[--name <value>]
[--cli-input-json | --cli-input-yaml]
[--starting-token <value>]
[--page-size <value>]
[--max-items <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]
[--cli-auto-prompt <value>]

Options

--routing-strategy-type (string)

The routing type to filter results on. Use this parameter to retrieve only aliases with a certain routing type. To retrieve all aliases, leave this parameter empty.

Possible routing types include the following:

  • SIMPLE – The alias resolves to one specific fleet. Use this type when routing to active fleets.

  • TERMINAL – The alias does not resolve to a fleet but instead can be used to display a message to the user. A terminal alias throws a TerminalRoutingStrategyException with the RoutingStrategy message embedded.

Possible values:

  • SIMPLE

  • TERMINAL

--name (string)

A descriptive label that is associated with an alias. Alias names do not need to be unique.

--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.

--starting-token (string)

A token to specify where to start paginating. This is the NextToken from a previously truncated response.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--page-size (integer)

The size of each page to get in the AWS service call. This does not affect the number of items returned in the command’s output. Setting a smaller page size results in more calls to the AWS service, retrieving fewer items in each call. This can help prevent the AWS service calls from timing out.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--max-items (integer)

The total number of items to return in the command’s output. If the total number of items available is more than the value specified, a NextToken is provided in the command’s output. To resume pagination, provide the NextToken value in the starting-token argument of a subsequent command. Do not use the NextToken response element directly outside of the AWS CLI.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--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.

--cli-auto-prompt (boolean) Automatically prompt for CLI input parameters.

See ‘aws help’ for descriptions of global parameters.

Output

Aliases -> (list)

A collection of alias resources that match the request parameters.

(structure)

Properties that describe an alias resource.

  • CreateAlias

  • ListAliases

  • DescribeAlias

  • UpdateAlias

  • DeleteAlias

  • ResolveAlias

AliasId -> (string)

A unique identifier for an alias. Alias IDs are unique within a Region.

Name -> (string)

A descriptive label that is associated with an alias. Alias names do not need to be unique.

AliasArn -> (string)

Amazon Resource Name (ARN ) that is assigned to a GameLift alias resource and uniquely identifies it. ARNs are unique across all Regions. In a GameLift alias ARN, the resource ID matches the alias ID value.

Description -> (string)

A human-readable description of an alias.

RoutingStrategy -> (structure)

The routing configuration, including routing type and fleet target, for the alias.

Type -> (string)

The type of routing strategy for the alias.

Possible routing types include the following:

  • SIMPLE - The alias resolves to one specific fleet. Use this type when routing to active fleets.

  • TERMINAL - The alias does not resolve to a fleet but instead can be used to display a message to the user. A terminal alias throws a TerminalRoutingStrategyException with the RoutingStrategy message embedded.

FleetId -> (string)

The unique identifier for a fleet that the alias points to. This value is the fleet ID, not the fleet ARN.

Message -> (string)

The message text to be used with a terminal routing strategy.

CreationTime -> (timestamp)

A time stamp indicating when this data object was created. Format is a number expressed in Unix time as milliseconds (for example “1469498468.057”).

LastUpdatedTime -> (timestamp)

The time that this data object was last modified. Format is a number expressed in Unix time as milliseconds (for example “1469498468.057”).

NextToken -> (string)

A token that indicates where to resume retrieving results on the next call to this operation. If no token is returned, these results represent the end of the list.
