Specifies the ByteMatchSet, IPSet, SqlInjectionMatchSet, XssMatchSet, RegexMatchSet, GeoMatchSet, and SizeConstraintSet objects that you want to add to a Rule and, for each object, indicates whether you want to negate the settings, for example, requests that do NOT originate from the IP address 192.0.2.44.

Negated

Set Negated to False if you want AWS WAF to allow, block, or count requests based on the settings in the specified ByteMatchSet, IPSet, SqlInjectionMatchSet, XssMatchSet, RegexMatchSet, GeoMatchSet, or SizeConstraintSet. For example, if an IPSet includes the IP address 192.0.2.44, AWS WAF will allow or block requests based on that IP address.

Set Negated to True if you want AWS WAF to allow or block a request based on the negation of the settings in the ByteMatchSet, IPSet, SqlInjectionMatchSet, XssMatchSet, RegexMatchSet, GeoMatchSet, or SizeConstraintSet. For example, if an IPSet includes the IP address 192.0.2.44, AWS WAF will allow, block, or count requests based on all IP addresses except 192.0.2.44.
