--assessment-target-arn <value>
--assessment-template-name <value>
--duration-in-seconds <value>
--rules-package-arns <value>
[--user-attributes-for-findings <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--assessment-target-arn (string)

The ARN that specifies the assessment target for which you want to create the assessment template.

--assessment-template-name (string)

The user-defined name that identifies the assessment template that you want to create. You can create several assessment templates for an assessment target. The names of the assessment templates that correspond to a particular assessment target must be unique.

--duration-in-seconds (integer)

The duration of the assessment run in seconds.

--rules-package-arns (list)

The ARNs that specify the rules packages that you want to attach to the assessment template.

Syntax:

"string" "string" ...

--user-attributes-for-findings (list)

The user-defined attributes that are assigned to every finding that is generated by the assessment run that uses this assessment template. An attribute is a key and value pair (an Attribute object). Within an assessment template, each key must be unique.

Shorthand Syntax:

key=string,value=string ...

JSON Syntax:

[
  {
    "key": "string",
    "value": "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.

Examples

To create an assessment template

The following create-assessment-template command creates an assessment template called ExampleAssessmentTemplate for the assessment target with the ARN of arn:aws:inspector:us-west-2:123456789012:target/0-nvgVhaxX:

aws inspector create-assessment-template --assessment-target-arn arn:aws:inspector:us-west-2:123456789012:target/0-nvgVhaxX --assessment-template-name ExampleAssessmentTemplate --duration-in-seconds 180 --rules-package-arns arn:aws:inspector:us-west-2:758058086616:rulespackage/0-9hgA516p --user-attributes-for-findings key=ExampleTag,value=examplevalue

Output:

{
    "assessmentTemplateArn": "arn:aws:inspector:us-west-2:123456789012:target/0-nvgVhaxX/template/0-it5r2S4T"
}
