put-evaluations

Description

Used by an Lambda function to deliver evaluation results to Config. This action is required in every Lambda function that is invoked by an Config rule.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  put-evaluations
[--evaluations <value>]
--result-token <value>
[--test-mode | --no-test-mode]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--evaluations (list)

The assessments that the Lambda function performs. Each evaluation identifies an Amazon Web Services resource and indicates whether it complies with the Config rule that invokes the Lambda function.

(structure)

Identifies an Amazon Web Services resource and indicates whether it complies with the Config rule that it was evaluated against.

ComplianceResourceType -> (string)

The type of Amazon Web Services resource that was evaluated.

ComplianceResourceId -> (string)

The ID of the Amazon Web Services resource that was evaluated.

ComplianceType -> (string)

Indicates whether the Amazon Web Services resource complies with the Config rule that it was evaluated against.

For the Evaluation data type, Config supports only the COMPLIANT , NON_COMPLIANT , and NOT_APPLICABLE values. Config does not support the INSUFFICIENT_DATA value for this data type.

Similarly, Config does not accept INSUFFICIENT_DATA as the value for ComplianceType from a PutEvaluations request. For example, an Lambda function for a custom Config rule cannot pass an INSUFFICIENT_DATA value to Config.

Annotation -> (string)

Supplementary information about how the evaluation determined the compliance.

OrderingTimestamp -> (timestamp)

The time of the event in Config that triggered the evaluation. For event-based evaluations, the time indicates when Config created the configuration item that triggered the evaluation. For periodic evaluations, the time indicates when Config triggered the evaluation at the frequency that you specified (for example, every 24 hours).

Shorthand Syntax:

ComplianceResourceType=string,ComplianceResourceId=string,ComplianceType=string,Annotation=string,OrderingTimestamp=timestamp ...

JSON Syntax:

[
  {
    "ComplianceResourceType": "string",
    "ComplianceResourceId": "string",
    "ComplianceType": "COMPLIANT"|"NON_COMPLIANT"|"NOT_APPLICABLE"|"INSUFFICIENT_DATA",
    "Annotation": "string",
    "OrderingTimestamp": timestamp
  }
  ...
]

--result-token (string)

An encrypted token that associates an evaluation with an Config rule. Identifies the rule and the event that triggered the evaluation.

--test-mode | --no-test-mode (boolean)

Use this parameter to specify a test run for PutEvaluations . You can verify whether your Lambda function will deliver evaluation results to Config. No updates occur to your existing evaluations, and evaluation results are not sent to Config.

Note

When TestMode is true , PutEvaluations doesn't require a valid value for the ResultToken parameter, but the value cannot be null.

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.
