--ignore-words (list)

An array that lists specific character sequences (ignore words ) to exclude from the results. If the text matched by the regular expression contains any string in this array, Amazon Macie ignores it. The array can contain as many as 10 ignore words. Each ignore word can contain 4-90 UTF-8 characters. Ignore words are case sensitive.



"string" "string" ...

--keywords (list)

An array that lists specific character sequences (keywords ), one of which must be within proximity (maximumMatchDistance) of the regular expression to match. The array can contain as many as 50 keywords. Each keyword can contain 3-90 UTF-8 characters. Keywords aren't case sensitive.



"string" "string" ...

--maximum-match-distance (integer)

The maximum number of characters that can exist between text that matches the regular expression and the character sequences specified by the keywords array. Amazon Macie includes or excludes a result based on the proximity of a keyword to text that matches the regular expression. The distance can be 1-300 characters. The default value is 50.

--regex (string)

The regular expression (regex ) that defines the pattern to match. The expression can contain as many as 512 characters.

--sample-text (string)

The sample text to inspect by using the custom data identifier. The text can contain as many as 1,000 characters.

--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.


matchCount -> (integer)

The number of occurrences of sample text that matched the criteria specified by the custom data identifier.
