API Reference

AWS services or capabilities described in AWS Documentation may vary by region/location. Click Getting Started with Amazon AWS to see specific differences applicable to the China (Beijing) Region.

The ActivatedRule object in an UpdateWebACL request specifies a Rule that you want to insert or delete, the priority of the Rule in the WebACL, and the action that you want AWS WAF to take when a web request matches the Rule (ALLOW, BLOCK, or COUNT).

To specify whether to insert or delete a Rule, use the Action parameter in the WebACLUpdate data type.

public class ActivatedRule

The ActivatedRule type exposes the following members


Public Method ActivatedRule()


Public Property Action Amazon.WAF.Model.WafAction

Gets and sets the property Action.

Specifies the action that CloudFront or AWS WAF takes when a web request matches the conditions in the Rule. Valid values for Action include the following:

  • ALLOW: CloudFront responds with the requested object.

  • BLOCK: CloudFront responds with an HTTP 403 (Forbidden) status code.

  • COUNT: AWS WAF increments a counter of requests that match the conditions in the rule and then continues to inspect the web request based on the remaining rules in the web ACL.

Public Property Priority System.Int32

Gets and sets the property Priority.

Specifies the order in which the Rules in a WebACL are evaluated. Rules with a lower value for Priority are evaluated before Rules with a higher value. The value must be a unique integer. If you add multiple Rules to a WebACL, the values don't need to be consecutive.

Public Property RuleId System.String

Gets and sets the property RuleId.

The RuleId for a Rule. You use RuleId to get more information about a Rule (see GetRule), update a Rule (see UpdateRule), insert a Rule into a WebACL or delete a one from a WebACL (see UpdateWebACL), or delete a Rule from AWS WAF (see DeleteRule).

RuleId is returned by CreateRule and by ListRules.

Public Property Type Amazon.WAF.WafRuleType

Gets and sets the property Type.

The rule type, either REGULAR, as defined by Rule, or RATE_BASED, as defined by RateBasedRule. The default is REGULAR. Although this field is optional, be aware that if you try to add a RATE_BASED rule to a web ACL without setting the type, the UpdateWebACL request will fail because the request tries to add a REGULAR rule with the specified ID, which does not exist.
