[ aws . guardduty ]



Creates a new IPSet, which is called a trusted IP list in the console user interface. An IPSet is a list of IP addresses that are trusted for secure communication with AWS infrastructure and applications. GuardDuty doesn't generate findings for IP addresses that are included in IPSets. Only users from the master account can use this operation.

Shorthand Syntax:


JSON Syntax:

{"string": "string"

--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.


To create a trusted IP set

The following create-ip-set example creates and activates a trusted IP set in the current region.

aws guardduty create-ip-set \
    --detector-id 12abc34d567e8fa901bc2d34eexample \
    --name new-ip-set \
    --format TXT
    --location s3://AWSDOC-EXAMPLE-BUCKET/customtrustlist.csv


    "IpSetId": "d4b94fc952d6912b8f3060768example"

For more information, see Working with Trusted IP Lists and Threat Lists in the GuardDuty User Guide.


IpSetId -> (string)
