    Hi there,

    There's a function GetPayloadAllocationAsPlainText();
    And another GetPayloadAllocationFromJsonAs<TPayload>();

    What data does this return? I can't find any mention in the docs.

    For anyone else who wants to know apparently it returns this structure
    Code (CSharp):
    1. [Serializable]
    2.     public class PayloadAllocation {
    3.         public Unity.Services.Matchmaker.Models.MatchProperties MatchProperties;
    4.         public string GeneratorName;
    5.         public string QueueName;
    6.         public string PoolName;
    7.         public string EnvironmentId;
    8.         public string BackfillTicketId;
    9.         public string MatchId;
    10.         public string PoolId;
    11.     }
    Which you can get with
    Code (CSharp):
    1. PayloadAllocation payloadAllocation = await MultiplayService.Instance.GetPayloadAllocationFromJsonAs<PayloadAllocation>();

    Just sharing an experience with that line of code that Codemonkey shared. I had Multiplay 1.0.3 installed and I was getting Failed to Deserialize error on the server. I upgraded my Multiplay version to 1.0.5 and the problem went away. So just sharing in case anyone else hits that error.
