Amazon GameLift Service
API Reference (API Version 2015-10-01)
AWS services or capabilities described in AWS documentation might vary by Region. To see the differences applicable to the China Regions, see Getting Started with AWS services in China.

CreateScript

Creates a new script record for your Realtime Servers script. Realtime scripts are JavaScript that provide configuration settings and optional custom game logic for your game. The script is deployed when you create a Realtime Servers fleet to host your game sessions. Script logic is executed during an active game session.

To create a new script record, specify a script name and provide the script file(s). The script files and all dependencies must be zipped into a single file. You can pull the zip file from either of these locations:

  • A locally available directory. Use the ZipFile parameter for this option.

  • An Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) bucket under your AWS account. Use the StorageLocation parameter for this option. You'll need to have an Identity Access Management (IAM) role that allows the Amazon GameLift service to access your S3 bucket.

If the call is successful, a new script record is created with a unique script ID. If the script file is provided as a local file, the file is uploaded to an Amazon GameLift-owned S3 bucket and the script record's storage location reflects this location. If the script file is provided as an S3 bucket, Amazon GameLift accesses the file at this storage location as needed for deployment.

Request Syntax

{ "Name": "string", "StorageLocation": { "Bucket": "string", "Key": "string", "ObjectVersion": "string", "RoleArn": "string" }, "Version": "string", "ZipFile": blob }

Request Parameters

For information about the parameters that are common to all actions, see Common Parameters.

The request accepts the following data in JSON format.

Note

In the following list, the required parameters are described first.

Name

Descriptive label that is associated with a script. Script names do not need to be unique. You can use UpdateScript to change this value later.

Type: String

Length Constraints: Minimum length of 1. Maximum length of 1024.

Required: No

StorageLocation

Location of the Amazon S3 bucket where a zipped file containing your Realtime scripts is stored. The storage location must specify the Amazon S3 bucket name, the zip file name (the "key"), and a role ARN that allows Amazon GameLift to access the Amazon S3 storage location. The S3 bucket must be in the same region where you want to create a new script. By default, Amazon GameLift uploads the latest version of the zip file; if you have S3 object versioning turned on, you can use the ObjectVersion parameter to specify an earlier version.

Type: S3Location object

Required: No

Version

Version that is associated with a build or script. Version strings do not need to be unique. You can use UpdateScript to change this value later.

Type: String

Length Constraints: Minimum length of 1. Maximum length of 1024.

Required: No

ZipFile

Data object containing your Realtime scripts and dependencies as a zip file. The zip file can have one or multiple files. Maximum size of a zip file is 5 MB.

When using the AWS CLI tool to create a script, this parameter is set to the zip file name. It must be prepended with the string "fileb://" to indicate that the file data is a binary object. For example: --zip-file fileb://myRealtimeScript.zip.

Type: Base64-encoded binary data object

Length Constraints: Maximum length of 5000000.

Required: No

Response Syntax

{ "Script": { "CreationTime": number, "Name": "string", "ScriptId": "string", "SizeOnDisk": number, "StorageLocation": { "Bucket": "string", "Key": "string", "ObjectVersion": "string", "RoleArn": "string" }, "Version": "string" } }

Response Elements

If the action is successful, the service sends back an HTTP 200 response.

The following data is returned in JSON format by the service.

Script

The newly created script record with a unique script ID. The new script's storage location reflects an Amazon S3 location: (1) If the script was uploaded from an S3 bucket under your account, the storage location reflects the information that was provided in the CreateScript request; (2) If the script file was uploaded from a local zip file, the storage location reflects an S3 location controls by the Amazon GameLift service.

Type: Script object
