describe-audit-finding

Description

Gets information about a single audit finding. Properties include the reason for noncompliance, the severity of the issue, and when the audit that returned the finding was started.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  describe-audit-finding
--finding-id <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--finding-id (string)

A unique identifier for a single audit finding. You can use this identifier to apply mitigation actions to the finding.

--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 list details for an audit finding

The following describe-audit-finding example lists the details for the specified AWS IoT Device Defender audit finding. An audit can produce multiple findings. Use the list-audit-findings command to get a list of the findings from an audit to get the findingId.

aws iot describe-audit-finding \
    --finding-id "ef4826b8-e55a-44b9-b460-5c485355371b"

Output:

    "finding": {
        "findingId": "ef4826b8-e55a-44b9-b460-5c485355371b",

                }
            }
         },
        "reasonForNonCompliance": "Policy allows broad access to IoT data plane actions: [iot:Subscribe, iot:Connect, iot:GetThingShadow, iot:DeleteThingShadow, iot:UpdateThingShadow, iot:Publish].",
        "reasonForNonComplianceCode": "ALLOWS_BROAD_ACCESS_TO_IOT_DATA_PLANE_ACTIONS"
    }
}
