Description

Creates a single DNS Firewall rule in the specified rule group, using the specified domain list.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  create-firewall-rule
[--creator-request-id <value>]
--firewall-rule-group-id <value>
--firewall-domain-list-id <value>
--priority <value>
--action <value>
[--block-response <value>]
[--block-override-domain <value>]
[--block-override-dns-type <value>]
[--block-override-ttl <value>]
--name <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--creator-request-id (string)

A unique string that identifies the request and that allows you to retry failed requests without the risk of running the operation twice. CreatorRequestId can be any unique string, for example, a date/time stamp.

--firewall-rule-group-id (string)

The unique identifier of the firewall rule group where you want to create the rule.

--firewall-domain-list-id (string)

The ID of the domain list that you want to use in the rule.

--priority (integer)

The setting that determines the processing order of the rule in the rule group. DNS Firewall processes the rules in a rule group by order of priority, starting from the lowest setting.

You must specify a unique priority for each rule in a rule group. To make it easier to insert rules later, leave space between the numbers, for example, use 100, 200, and so on. You can change the priority setting for the rules in a rule group at any time.

--action (string)

The action that DNS Firewall should take on a DNS query when it matches one of the domains in the rule's domain list:

  • ALLOW - Permit the request to go through.
  • ALERT - Permit the request and send metrics and logs to Cloud Watch.
  • BLOCK - Disallow the request. This option requires additional details in the rule's BlockResponse .

Possible values:

  • ALLOW
  • BLOCK
  • ALERT

--block-response (string)

The way that you want DNS Firewall to block the request, used with the rule action setting BLOCK .

  • NODATA - Respond indicating that the query was successful, but no response is available for it.
  • NXDOMAIN - Respond indicating that the domain name that's in the query doesn't exist.
  • OVERRIDE - Provide a custom override in the response. This option requires custom handling details in the rule's BlockOverride* settings.

This setting is required if the rule action setting is BLOCK .

Possible values:

  • NODATA
  • NXDOMAIN
  • OVERRIDE

--block-override-domain (string)

The custom DNS record to send back in response to the query. Used for the rule action BLOCK with a BlockResponse setting of OVERRIDE .

This setting is required if the BlockResponse setting is OVERRIDE .

--block-override-dns-type (string)

The DNS record's type. This determines the format of the record value that you provided in BlockOverrideDomain . Used for the rule action BLOCK with a BlockResponse setting of OVERRIDE .

This setting is required if the BlockResponse setting is OVERRIDE .

Possible values:

  • CNAME

--block-override-ttl (integer)

The recommended amount of time, in seconds, for the DNS resolver or web browser to cache the provided override record. Used for the rule action BLOCK with a BlockResponse setting of OVERRIDE .

This setting is required if the BlockResponse setting is OVERRIDE .

--name (string)

A name that lets you identify the rule in the rule group.

--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 firewall rule

The following create-firewall-rule example creates a firewall rule in a DNS Firewall rule for domains listed in a DNS Firewall domain list.

aws route53resolver create-firewall-rule \
    --name allow-rule \
    --firewall-rule-group-id rslvr-frg-47f93271fexample \
    --firewall-domain-list-id rslvr-fdl-9e956e9ffexample \
    --priority 101 \
    --action ALLOW

Output:

{
    "FirewallRule": {
        "FirewallRuleGroupId": "rslvr-frg-47f93271fexample",
        "FirewallDomainListId": "rslvr-fdl-9e956e9ffexample",
        "Name": "allow-rule",
        "Priority": 101,
        "Action": "ALLOW",
        "CreatorRequestId": "d81e3fb7-020b-415e-939f-EXAMPLE11111",
        "CreationTime": "2021-05-25T21:44:00.346093Z",
        "ModificationTime": "2021-05-25T21:44:00.346093Z"
    }
}

The way that you want DNS Firewall to block the request. Used for the rule action setting BLOCK .

  • NODATA - Respond indicating that the query was successful, but no response is available for it.
