list-violation-events

Description

Lists the Device Defender security profile violations discovered during the given time period. You can use filters to limit the results to those alerts issued for a particular security profile, behavior or thing (device).

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

list-violation-events is a paginated operation. Multiple API calls may be issued in order to retrieve the entire data set of results. You can disable pagination by providing the --no-paginate argument. When using --output text and the --query argument on a paginated response, the --query argument must extract data from the results of the following query expressions: violationEvents

Synopsis

  list-violation-events
--start-time <value>
--end-time <value>
[--thing-name <value>]
[--security-profile-name <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--starting-token <value>]
[--page-size <value>]
[--max-items <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--start-time (timestamp)

The start time for the alerts to be listed.

--end-time (timestamp)

The end time for the alerts to be listed.

--thing-name (string)

A filter to limit results to those alerts caused by the specified thing.

--security-profile-name (string)

A filter to limit results to those alerts generated by the specified security profile.

--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.

--starting-token (string)

A token to specify where to start paginating. This is the NextToken from a previously truncated response.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--page-size (integer)

The size of each page to get in the AWS service call. This does not affect the number of items returned in the command's output. Setting a smaller page size results in more calls to the AWS service, retrieving fewer items in each call. This can help prevent the AWS service calls from timing out.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--max-items (integer)

The total number of items to return in the command's output. If the total number of items available is more than the value specified, a NextToken is provided in the command's output. To resume pagination, provide the NextToken value in the starting-token argument of a subsequent command. Do not use the NextToken response element directly outside of the AWS CLI.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--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.

Output

violationEvents -> (list)

The security profile violation alerts issued for this account during the given time frame, potentially filtered by security profile, behavior violated, or thing (device) violating.

(structure)

Information about a Device Defender security profile behavior violation.

violationId -> (string)

The ID of the violation event.

thingName -> (string)

The name of the thing responsible for the violation event.

securityProfileName -> (string)

The name of the security profile whose behavior was violated.

behavior -> (structure)

The behavior which was violated.

name -> (string)

The name you have given to the behavior.

metric -> (string)

What is measured by the behavior.

criteria -> (structure)

The criteria that determine if a device is behaving normally in regard to the metric .

comparisonOperator -> (string)

The operator that relates the thing measured (metric ) to the criteria (containing a value or statisticalThreshold ).

value -> (structure)

The value to be compared with the metric .

count -> (long)

If the comparisonOperator calls for a numeric value, use this to specify that numeric value to be compared with the metric .

cidrs -> (list)

If the comparisonOperator calls for a set of CIDRs, use this to specify that set to be compared with the metric .

(string)

ports -> (list)

If the comparisonOperator calls for a set of ports, use this to specify that set to be compared with the metric .

(integer)

durationSeconds -> (integer)

Use this to specify the time duration over which the behavior is evaluated, for those criteria which have a time dimension (for example, NUM_MESSAGES_SENT ). For a statisticalThreshhold metric comparison, measurements from all devices are accumulated over this time duration before being used to calculate percentiles, and later, measurements from an individual device are also accumulated over this time duration before being given a percentile rank.

consecutiveDatapointsToAlarm -> (integer)

If a device is in violation of the behavior for the specified number of consecutive datapoints, an alarm occurs. If not specified, the default is 1.

consecutiveDatapointsToClear -> (integer)

If an alarm has occurred and the offending device is no longer in violation of the behavior for the specified number of consecutive datapoints, the alarm is cleared. If not specified, the default is 1.

statisticalThreshold -> (structure)

A statistical ranking (percentile) which indicates a threshold value by which a behavior is determined to be in compliance or in violation of the behavior.

statistic -> (string)

The percentile which resolves to a threshold value by which compliance with a behavior is determined. Metrics are collected over the specified period (durationSeconds ) from all reporting devices in your account and statistical ranks are calculated. Then, the measurements from a device are collected over the same period. If the accumulated measurements from the device fall above or below (comparisonOperator ) the value associated with the percentile specified, then the device is considered to be in compliance with the behavior, otherwise a violation occurs.

metricValue -> (structure)

The value of the metric (the measurement).

count -> (long)

If the comparisonOperator calls for a numeric value, use this to specify that numeric value to be compared with the metric .

cidrs -> (list)

If the comparisonOperator calls for a set of CIDRs, use this to specify that set to be compared with the metric .

(string)

ports -> (list)

If the comparisonOperator calls for a set of ports, use this to specify that set to be compared with the metric .

(integer)

violationEventType -> (string)

The type of violation event.

violationEventTime -> (timestamp)

The time the violation event occurred.

nextToken -> (string)

A token that can be used to retrieve the next set of results, or null if there are no additional results.
