AWS::WAFv2::WebACL SqliMatchStatement - AWS CloudFormation

AWS::WAFv2::WebACL SqliMatchStatement

A rule statement that inspects for malicious SQL code. Attackers insert malicious SQL code into web requests to do things like modify your database or extract data from it.


To declare this entity in your AWS CloudFormation template, use the following syntax:



The part of the web request that you want AWS WAF to inspect.

Required: Yes

Type: FieldToMatch

Update requires: No interruption


The sensitivity that you want AWS WAF to use to inspect for SQL injection attacks.

HIGH detects more attacks, but might generate more false positives, especially if your web requests frequently contain unusual strings. For information about identifying and mitigating false positives, see Testing and tuning in the AWS WAF Developer Guide.

LOW is generally a better choice for resources that already have other protections against SQL injection attacks or that have a low tolerance for false positives.

Default: LOW

Required: No

Type: String

Allowed values: LOW | HIGH

Update requires: No interruption


Text transformations eliminate some of the unusual formatting that attackers use in web requests in an effort to bypass detection. If you specify one or more transformations in a rule statement, AWS WAF performs all transformations on the content of the request component identified by FieldToMatch, starting from the lowest priority setting, before inspecting the content for a match.

Required: Yes

Type: Array of TextTransformation

Minimum: 1

Update requires: No interruption
