Manage fleets

Note: The content on this page pertains to Game Server Hosting (Multiplay) available on the Unity Dashboard. If you’re using Game Server Hosting (Clanforge), see the Game Server Hosting (Clanforge) documentation.

You can manage your fleets from the Unity Dashboard. See the sections below to learn how to perform basic fleet tasks, such as creating a fleet, updating a fleet, taking a fleet offline, and bringing a fleet online.

Create a fleet

See Create a fleet.

Update a fleet

To update a fleet:

  1. Go to Multiplayer > Game Server Hosting > Fleets.
  2. Select the fleet you want to update.
  3. Select Build configurations to update the build configurations.
  4. Select Scaling settings to update the scaling settings.

Take a fleet offline

Taking a fleet offline initializes the process of scaling down all regions within the fleet. The fleet won’t be offline until each region within it finishes scaling down.

To take a fleet offline:

Warning: Taking a fleet offline impacts the availability of your game or application.

  1. Go to Multiplayer > Game Server Hosting > Fleets.
  2. Select the fleet you want to update.
  3. Select the fleet status, then select Take fleet offline.

Note: Taking a region offline can take up to several hours. The process of taking a region offline drains all the servers within the region and prevents new players from joining servers in the region.

Bring a fleet online

To bring a fleet online:

  1. Go to Multiplayer > Game Server Hosting > Fleets.
  2. Select the fleet you want to update.
  3. Select the fleet status, then select Bring fleet online.

Delete a fleet

To delete a fleet:

Warning: You can't delete a fleet if it's currently online and taking server allocations. You must take a fleet offline before you can delete it.

  1. Go to Multiplayer > Game Server Hosting > Fleets.
  2. Select the fleet you want to delete.
  3. Select Delete.
