Integrate your game server with Amazon GameLift

After your custom game server is deployed and running on Amazon GameLift instances, it must be able to interact with Amazon GameLift (and potentially other resources). This section describes how to integrate your game server software with Amazon GameLift.


These instructions assume that you've created an Amazon Web Services account and that you have an existing game server project.

The topics in this section describe how to handle the following integration tasks:

  • Establish communication between Amazon GameLift and your game servers.

  • Generate and use a TLS certificate to establish a secure connection between game client and game server.

  • Provide permissions for your game server software to interact with other Amazon resources.

  • Allow game server processes to get information about the fleet that they're running on.
