Options

--security-profile-name (string)

The name you are giving to the security profile.

A description of the security profile.

--behaviors (list)

Specifies the behaviors that, when violated by a device (thing), cause an alert.

    "name": "string",
    "metric": "string",

--alert-targets (map)

Specifies the destinations to which alerts are sent. (Alerts are always sent to the console.) Alerts are generated when a device (thing) violates a behavior.

Where valid key names are:
  SNS

JSON Syntax:

{"SNS": {

    }
  ...}

--additional-metrics-to-retain (list)

A list of metrics whose data is retained (stored). By default, data is retained for any metric used in the profile's behaviors , but it is also retained for any metric specified here.

Note: This API field is deprecated. Please use CreateSecurityProfileRequest$additionalMetricsToRetainV2 instead.

Syntax:

"string" "string" ...

--additional-metrics-to-retain-v2 (list)

A list of metrics whose data is retained (stored). By default, data is retained for any metric used in the profile's behaviors , but it is also retained for any metric specified here.

Shorthand Syntax:

metric=string,metricDimension={dimensionName=string,operator=string} ...

JSON Syntax:

[
  {
    "metric": "string",
    "metricDimension": {
      "dimensionName": "string",
      "operator": "IN"|"NOT_IN"
    }
  }
  ...
]

--tags (list)

Metadata that can be used to manage the security profile.

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 a security profile

The following create-security-profile example creates a security profile that checks if cellular bandwidth exceeds a threshold or if more than 10 authorization failures occur within a five-minute period.

aws iot create-security-profile \
    --security-profile-name PossibleIssue \
    --security-profile-description "Check to see if authorization fails 10 times in 5 minutes or if cellular bandwidth exceeds 128"  \
    --behaviors "[{\"name\":\"CellularBandwidth\",\"metric\":\"aws:message-byte-size\",\"criteria\":{\"comparisonOperator\":\"greater-than\",\"value\":{\"count\":128},\"consecutiveDatapointsToAlarm\":1,\"consecutiveDatapointsToClear\":1}},{\"name\":\"Authorization\",\"metric\":\"aws:num-authorization-failures\",\"criteria\":{\"comparisonOperator\":\"less-than\",\"value\":{\"count\":10},\"durationSeconds\":300,\"consecutiveDatapointsToAlarm\":1,\"consecutiveDatapointsToClear\":1}}]"

Output:

{
    "securityProfileName": "PossibleIssue",
    "securityProfileArn": "arn:aws:iot:us-west-2:123456789012:securityprofile/PossibleIssue"
}

Output

securityProfileName -> (string)
