update-firewall-config

Description

Updates the configuration of the firewall behavior provided by DNS Firewall for a single VPC from Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC).

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  update-firewall-config
--resource-id <value>
--firewall-fail-open <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--resource-id (string)

The ID of the VPC that the configuration is for.

--firewall-fail-open (string)

Determines how Route 53 Resolver handles queries during failures, for example when all traffic that is sent to DNS Firewall fails to receive a reply.

  • By default, fail open is disabled, which means the failure mode is closed. This approach favors security over availability. DNS Firewall blocks queries that it is unable to evaluate properly.
  • If you enable this option, the failure mode is open. This approach favors availability over security. DNS Firewall allows queries to proceed if it is unable to properly evaluate them.

This behavior is only enforced for VPCs that have at least one DNS Firewall rule group association.

Possible values:

  • ENABLED
  • DISABLED

--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 update a firewall config

The following update-firewall-config example updates DNS Firewall configuration.

aws route53resolver update-firewall-config \
    --resource-id vpc-31e92222 \
    --firewall-fail-open DISABLED

Output:

{
    "FirewallConfig": {
        "Id": "rslvr-fc-86016850cexample",
        "ResourceId": "vpc-31e92222",
        "OwnerId": "123456789012",
        "FirewallFailOpen": "DISABLED"
    }
}

For more information, see DNS Firewall VPC configuration in the Amazon Route 53 Developer Guide.

Output

FirewallConfig -> (structure)

Configuration of the firewall behavior provided by DNS Firewall for a single VPC.

Id -> (string)

The ID of the firewall configuration.

ResourceId -> (string)

The ID of the VPC that this firewall configuration applies to.

OwnerId -> (string)

The Amazon Web Services account ID of the owner of the VPC that this firewall configuration applies to.

FirewallFailOpen -> (string)

Determines how DNS Firewall operates during failures, for example when all traffic that is sent to DNS Firewall fails to receive a reply.

  • By default, fail open is disabled, which means the failure mode is closed. This approach favors security over availability. DNS Firewall returns a failure error when it is unable to properly evaluate a query.
  • If you enable this option, the failure mode is open. This approach favors availability over security. DNS Firewall allows queries to proceed if it is unable to properly evaluate them.

This behavior is only enforced for VPCs that have at least one DNS Firewall rule group association.
