Unreservation flow

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

Similarly to deallocations, Game Server Hosting must know when a game server that is using the reservation model is no longer in use to return that server back to the available pool.

The following steps outline the unreservation process.

  1. The game session finishes.
  2. The game server calls the Unreserve API endpoint to unreserve itself.
  3. Game Server Hosting's reservation processor looks up the calling game server, then adds it back to the available server pool. This is done to help with scaling decisions rather than to prevent it from being allocated twice.
