Content & Configuration Reads

Content & Configuration files include the following items: entity files, actions, rules, scheduled tasks, matchmaking, push notifications, emails, and title news. Content & Configuration files are a set of key/value pairs that are primarily used to manage configuration for your game remotely.

The following APIs cause the Content & Configuration reads meter to increment.

Admin APIs

  • GetContentUploadUrl Retrieves the pre-signed URL for uploading a content file. A subsequent HTTP PUT to the returned URL uploads the content. Also, please be aware that the Content service is specifically PlayFab's CDN offering, for which standard CDN rates apply

  • GetActionsOnPlayersInSegmentTaskInstance Get information about a ActionsOnPlayersInSegment task instance.

Client APIs

Data APIs

  • GetFiles Retrieves file metadata from an entity's profile.

Server APIs

  • GetContentDownloadUrl This API retrieves a pre-signed URL for accessing a content file for the title. A subsequent HTTP GET to the returned URL will attempt to download the content. A HEAD query to the returned URL will attempt to retrieve the metadata of the content. Note that a successful result does not guarantee the existence of this content - if it has not been uploaded, the query to retrieve the data will fail.
