    I created test server.json in project folder, but getting some errors.
    see the screenshot.
    I am trying to run a sample project from Matchmaker service documentation.
    How to run it on my local?

    Hello,

    The sample project is attempting to connect to a localhost API that exists in the real Multiplay environment. Currently there is not a way to run this API on your local machine.

    I would suggest adjusting your server codebase to have a mechanism to check if it is running on Multiplay or not. This could be as simple as creating a new command line argument (e.g. "-local") and parsing with the GetCommandLineArgs system method - https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet/api/system.environment.getcommandlineargs?view=net-7.0
