Are there events triggered when GameLift fleets scale?

Hi -

I understand there are specific events fired for certain FlexMatch matchmaking events (FlexMatch matchmaking events - Amazon GameLift).

Is there anything fired (that we can capture through SNS, for example) when a GameLift fleet triggers a scaling event?



Hi @SteveShiny

Currently, there is no such mechanism in-place today, though it is a requested feature and it is currently in our backlog.

Suggested workaround:
If you don’t need this data in real time, you can setup a scheduled task to describe fleet events for the past N minutes and parse the response JSON which includes autoscaling events. You may also want to setup fleet aliases if you don’t want to use fleet-ids directly when calling the describe-fleet-events API.
