The input method for the keyword.

Type: String


Required: No


The value of the keyword that's used when mapping a control data source. For example, this can be a CloudTrail event name, a rule name for AWS Config, a Security Hub control, or the name of an AWS API call.

If you’re mapping a data source to a rule in AWS Config, the keywordValue that you specify depends on the type of rule:

  • For managed rules, you can use the rule identifier as the keywordValue. You can find the rule identifier from the list of AWS Config managed rules.

  • For custom rules, you form the keywordValue by adding the Custom_ prefix to the rule name. This prefix distinguishes the rule from a managed rule.

    • Custom rule name: my-custom-config-rule

      keywordValue: Custom_my-custom-config-rule

  • For service-linked rules, you form the keywordValue by adding the Custom_ prefix to the rule name. In addition, you remove the suffix ID that appears at the end of the rule name.

    • Service-linked rule name: CustomRuleForAccount-conformance-pack-szsm1uv0w

      keywordValue: Custom_CustomRuleForAccount-conformance-pack

    • Service-linked rule name: OrgConfigRule-s3-bucket-versioning-enabled-dbgzf8ba

      keywordValue: Custom_OrgConfigRule-s3-bucket-versioning-enabled

Type: String
