[ aws . route53resolver ]



Imports domain names from a file into a domain list, for use in a DNS firewall rule group.

Each domain specification in your domain list must satisfy the following requirements:

  • It can optionally start with * (asterisk).
  • With the exception of the optional starting asterisk, it must only contain the following characters: A-Z , a-z , 0-9 , - (hyphen).
  • It must be from 1-255 characters in length.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.


--firewall-domain-list-id <value>
--operation <value>
--domain-file-url <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


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

The ID of the domain list that you want to modify with the import operation.

--operation (string)

What you want DNS Firewall to do with the domains that are listed in the file. This must be set to REPLACE , which updates the domain list to exactly match the list in the file.

Possible values:


--domain-file-url (string)

The fully qualified URL or URI of the file stored in Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) that contains the list of domains to import.

The file must be in an S3 bucket that's in the same Region as your DNS Firewall. The file must be a text file and must contain a single domain per line.

--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.


To import domains into a domain list

The following import-firewall-domains example imports a set of domains from a file into a DNS Firewall domain list that you specify.

aws route53resolver import-firewall-domains \
    --firewall-domain-list-id rslvr-fdl-d61cbb2cbexample \
    --operation REPLACE \
    --domain-file-url s3://PATH/TO/YOUR/FILE


    "Id": "rslvr-fdl-d61cbb2cbexample",
    "Name": "test",
    "Status": "IMPORTING",
    "StatusMessage": "Importing domains from provided file."
