create-traffic-mirror-filter

Description

Creates a Traffic Mirror filter.

A Traffic Mirror filter is a set of rules that defines the traffic to mirror.

By default, no traffic is mirrored. To mirror traffic, use CreateTrafficMirrorFilterRule to add Traffic Mirror rules to the filter. The rules you add define what traffic gets mirrored. You can also use ModifyTrafficMirrorFilterNetworkServices to mirror supported network services.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

--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 Traffic Mirror Filter

The following create-traffic-mirror-filter example creates a Traffic Mirror filter. After you create the filter, use create-traffic-mirror-filter-rule to add rules to the filter.

aws ec2 create-traffic-mirror-filter \
    --description "TCP Filter"

Output:

{
    "ClientToken": "28908518-100b-4987-8233-8c744EXAMPLE",
    "TrafficMirrorFilter": {
        "TrafficMirrorFilterId": "tmf-04812ff784EXAMPLE",
        "Description": "TCP Filter",
        "EgressFilterRules": [],
        "IngressFilterRules": [],
        "Tags": [],
        "NetworkServices": []
    }
}
