DescribeFleetLocationAttributes - Amazon GameLift
Services or capabilities described in Amazon Web Services documentation might vary by Region. To see the differences applicable to the China Regions, see Getting Started with Amazon Web Services in China (PDF).


Retrieves information on a fleet's remote locations, including life-cycle status and any suspended fleet activity.

This operation can be used in the following ways:

  • To get data for specific locations, provide a fleet identifier and a list of locations. Location data is returned in the order that it is requested.

  • To get data for all locations, provide a fleet identifier only. Location data is returned in no particular order.

When requesting attributes for multiple locations, use the pagination parameters to retrieve results as a set of sequential pages.

If successful, a LocationAttributes object is returned for each requested location. If the fleet does not have a requested location, no information is returned. This operation does not return the home Region. To get information on a fleet's home Region, call DescribeFleetAttributes.

This example retrieves information on all remote locations for a fleet. The requested fleet's home Region is us-west-2. It can deploy instances in the following Amazon Regions: us-west-2, us-west-1, and ca-central-1. In this example, auto-scaling has been suspended in ca-central-1, and there is a fleet update that has not yet been completed for that location.
