Options

--traffic-mirror-filter-id (string)

The ID of the filter that this rule is associated with.

--traffic-direction (string)

The type of traffic (ingress | egress ).

Possible values:

  • ingress
  • egress

--rule-number (integer)

The number of the Traffic Mirror rule. This number must be unique for each Traffic Mirror rule in a given direction. The rules are processed in ascending order by rule number.

--rule-action (string)

The action to take (accept | reject ) on the filtered traffic.

Possible values:

  • accept
  • reject

--destination-port-range (structure)

The destination port range.

Shorthand Syntax:

FromPort=integer,ToPort=integer

JSON Syntax:

{
  "FromPort": integer,
  "ToPort": integer
}

--source-port-range (structure)

The source port range.

Shorthand Syntax:

FromPort=integer,ToPort=integer

JSON Syntax:

{
  "FromPort": integer,
  "ToPort": integer
}

--protocol (integer)

The protocol, for example UDP, to assign to the Traffic Mirror rule.

For information about the protocol value, see Protocol Numbers on the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) website.

--destination-cidr-block (string)

The destination CIDR block to assign to the Traffic Mirror rule.

--source-cidr-block (string)

The source CIDR block to assign to the Traffic Mirror rule.

--description (string)

The description of the Traffic Mirror rule.

--dry-run | --no-dry-run (boolean)

Checks whether you have the required permissions for the action, without actually making the request, and provides an error response. If you have the required permissions, the error response is DryRunOperation . Otherwise, it is UnauthorizedOperation .

--client-token (string)

Unique, case-sensitive identifier that you provide to ensure the idempotency of the request. For more information, see How to Ensure Idempotency .

--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.

Examples

To create a filter rule for incoming TCP traffic

The following create-traffic-mirror-filter-rule example creates a rule that you can use to mirror all incoming TCP traffic. Before you run this command, use create-traffic-mirror-filter to create the the Traffic Mirror filter.

aws ec2 create-traffic-mirror-filter-rule \
    --description "TCP Rule" \
    --destination-cidr-block 0.0.0.0/0  \
    --protocol 6 \
    --rule-action accept \
    --rule-number 1 \
    --source-cidr-block 0.0.0.0/0 \
    --traffic-direction ingress \
    --traffic-mirror-filter-id tmf-04812ff784b25ae67

Output:

{
    "TrafficMirrorFilterRule": {
        "DestinationCidrBlock": "0.0.0.0/0",
        "TrafficMirrorFilterId": "tmf-04812ff784b25ae67",
        "TrafficMirrorFilterRuleId": "tmfr-02d20d996673f3732",
        "SourceCidrBlock": "0.0.0.0/0",
        "TrafficDirection": "ingress",
        "Description": "TCP Rule",
        "RuleNumber": 1,
        "RuleAction": "accept",
        "Protocol": 6
    },
    "ClientToken": "4752b573-40a6-4eac-a8a4-a72058761219"
}
