AWS::Macie::FindingsFilter - AWS CloudFormation

AWS::Macie::FindingsFilter

The AWS::Macie::FindingsFilter resource specifies a findings filter. In Amazon Macie, a findings filter, also referred to as a filter rule, is a set of custom criteria that specifies which findings to include or exclude from the results of a query for findings. The criteria can help you identify and focus on findings that have specific characteristics, such as severity, type, or the name of an affected AWS resource. You can also configure a findings filter to suppress (automatically archive) findings that match the filter's criteria. For more information, see Filtering findings in the Amazon Macie User Guide.

An AWS::Macie::Session resource must exist for an AWS account before you can create an AWS::Macie::FindingsFilter resource for the account. Use a DependsOn attribute to ensure that an AWS::Macie::Session resource is created before other Macie resources are created for an account. For example, "DependsOn": "Session".

Return values

Ref

When you pass the logical ID of this resource to the intrinsic Ref function, Ref returns the ID of the FindingsFilter. For example, { "Ref": "FindingsFilter" }.

Fn::GetAtt

The Fn::GetAtt intrinsic function returns a value for a specified attribute of this type. The following are the available attributes and sample return values.

For more information about using the Fn::GetAtt intrinsic function, see Fn::GetAtt.

Arn

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the findings filter.

FindingsFilterListItems

An array of FindingsFilterListItem objects, one for each findings filter that's associated with the account.

Id

The unique identifier for the findings filter.

Examples

The following example demonstrates how to declare an AWS::Macie::FindingsFilter resource.

Creating a findings filter that filters by account ID

This example creates a findings filter that suppresses (automatically archives) findings for AWS resources that are owned by a specific account (123456789012).

JSON

{ "Type": "AWS::Macie::FindingsFilter", "DependsOn": "Session", "Properties": { "Action": "ARCHIVE", "Description": "My custom findings filter", "FindingCriteria": { "Criterion": { "accountId": { "eq": [ "123456789012" ] } } }, "Name": "MyFilterName", "Position": 1 } }

YAML

Type: 'AWS::Macie::FindingsFilter' DependsOn: Session Properties: Action: ARCHIVE Description: My custom findings filter FindingCriteria: Criterion: accountId: eq: - '123456789012' Name: MyFilterName Position: 1
