  • Resources are considered noncompliant for Network Firewall policies if a firewall is missing in the VPC, if the firewall endpoint isn't set up in an expected Availability Zone and subnet, if a subnet created by the Firewall Manager doesn't have the expected route table, and for modifications to a firewall policy that violate the Firewall Manager policy's rules.
  • Resources are considered noncompliant for DNS Firewall policies if a DNS Firewall rule group is missing from the rule group associations for the VPC.

--policy-id (string)

The ID of the policy that you want to get the details for. PolicyId is returned by PutPolicy and by ListPolicies .

--member-account (string)

The Amazon Web Services account that owns the resources that you want to get the details for.

--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.
