[ aws . waf ]

create-ip-set

Description

Creates an IPSet , which you use to specify which web requests you want to allow or block based on the IP addresses that the requests originate from. For example, if you're receiving a lot of requests from one or more individual IP addresses or one or more ranges of IP addresses and you want to block the requests, you can create an IPSet that contains those IP addresses and then configure AWS WAF to block the requests.

To create and configure an IPSet , perform the following steps:

  • Use get-change-token to get the change token that you provide in the change-token parameter of a create-ip-set request.
  • Submit a create-ip-set request.
  • Use get-change-token to get the change token that you provide in the change-token parameter of an update-ip-set request.
  • Submit an update-ip-set request to specify the IP addresses that you want AWS WAF to watch for.

For more information about how to use the AWS WAF API to allow or block HTTP requests, see the AWS WAF Developer Guide .

Synopsis

  create-ip-set
--name <value>
--change-token <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--name (string)

A friendly name or description of the IPSet . You can't change Name after you create the IPSet .

--change-token (string)

The value returned by the most recent call to get-change-token .

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

Output

IPSet -> (structure)

The IPSet returned in the create-ip-set response.

IPSetId -> (string)

The IPSetId for an IPSet . You use IPSetId to get information about an IPSet (see get-ip-set ), update an IPSet (see update-ip-set ), insert an IPSet into a Rule or delete one from a Rule (see update-rule ), and delete an IPSet from AWS WAF (see delete-ip-set ).

IPSetId is returned by create-ip-set and by list-ip-sets .

Name -> (string)

A friendly name or description of the IPSet . You can't change the name of an IPSet after you create it.

IPSetDescriptors -> (list)

The IP address type (IPV4 or IPV6 ) and the IP address range (in CIDR notation) that web requests originate from. If the WebACL is associated with a CloudFront distribution and the viewer did not use an HTTP proxy or a load balancer to send the request, this is the value of the c-ip field in the CloudFront access logs.

(structure)

Specifies the IP address type (IPV4 or IPV6 ) and the IP address range (in CIDR format) that web requests originate from.

Type -> (string)

Specify IPV4 or IPV6 .

Value -> (string)

Specify an IPv4 address by using CIDR notation. For example:

  • To configure AWS WAF to allow, block, or count requests that originated from the IP address 192.0.2.44, specify 192.0.2.44/32 .
  • To configure AWS WAF to allow, block, or count requests that originated from IP addresses from 192.0.2.0 to 192.0.2.255, specify 192.0.2.0/24 .

For more information about CIDR notation, see the Wikipedia entry Classless Inter-Domain Routing .

Specify an IPv6 address by using CIDR notation. For example:

  • To configure AWS WAF to allow, block, or count requests that originated from the IP address 1111:0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:0111, specify 1111:0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:0111/128 .
  • To configure AWS WAF to allow, block, or count requests that originated from IP addresses 1111:0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:0000 to 1111:0000:0000:0000:ffff:ffff:ffff:ffff, specify 1111:0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:0000/64 .

ChangeToken -> (string)

The change-token that you used to submit the create-ip-set request. You can also use this value to query the status of the request. For more information, see get-change-token-status .
