describe-rule-group-metadata

Description

High-level information about a rule group, returned by operations like create and describe. You can use the information provided in the metadata to retrieve and manage a rule group. You can retrieve all objects for a rule group by calling DescribeRuleGroup .

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  describe-rule-group-metadata
[--rule-group-name <value>]
[--rule-group-arn <value>]
[--type <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--rule-group-name (string)

The descriptive name of the rule group. You can't change the name of a rule group after you create it.

You must specify the ARN or the name, and you can specify both.

--rule-group-arn (string)

The descriptive name of the rule group. You can't change the name of a rule group after you create it.

You must specify the ARN or the name, and you can specify both.

--type (string)

Indicates whether the rule group is stateless or stateful. If the rule group is stateless, it contains stateless rules. If it is stateful, it contains stateful rules.

Note

This setting is required for requests that do not include the RuleGroupARN .

Possible values:

  • STATELESS
  • STATEFUL

--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.

Output

RuleGroupArn -> (string)

The descriptive name of the rule group. You can't change the name of a rule group after you create it.

You must specify the ARN or the name, and you can specify both.

RuleGroupName -> (string)

The descriptive name of the rule group. You can't change the name of a rule group after you create it.

You must specify the ARN or the name, and you can specify both.

Description -> (string)

Returns the metadata objects for the specified rule group.

Type -> (string)

Indicates whether the rule group is stateless or stateful. If the rule group is stateless, it contains stateless rules. If it is stateful, it contains stateful rules.

Note

This setting is required for requests that do not include the RuleGroupARN .

Capacity -> (integer)

The maximum operating resources that this rule group can use. Rule group capacity is fixed at creation. When you update a rule group, you are limited to this capacity. When you reference a rule group from a firewall policy, Network Firewall reserves this capacity for the rule group.

You can retrieve the capacity that would be required for a rule group before you create the rule group by calling CreateRuleGroup with DryRun set to TRUE .

StatefulRuleOptions -> (structure)

Additional options governing how Network Firewall handles the rule group. You can only use these for stateful rule groups.

RuleOrder -> (string)

Indicates how to manage the order of the rule evaluation for the rule group. DEFAULT_ACTION_ORDER is the default behavior. Stateful rules are provided to the rule engine as Suricata compatible strings, and Suricata evaluates them based on certain settings. For more information, see Evaluation order for stateful rules in the Network Firewall Developer Guide .

LastModifiedTime -> (timestamp)

The last time that the rule group was changed.
