Active build configuration

Allocations drive Game Server Hosting fleets by propagating configuration changes to servers as they’re necessary to fulfill player demand. One such configuration is the active build configuration.

A matchmaker controls servers' active build configuration in a typical production environment by requesting servers to meet player needs. But it’s also possible to manually allocate a server with a build configuration.

The simplest ways to change the active build configuration of a server are to:

  1. Use the Allocations API to allocate the server with the build configuration you want to run.
  2. Create a test allocation with the build configuration.
