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

The ID of the domain list whose domains you want to update.

--operation (string)

What you want DNS Firewall to do with the domains that you are providing:

  • ADD - Add the domains to the ones that are already in the domain list.
  • REMOVE - Search the domain list for the domains and remove them from the list.
  • REPLACE - Update the domain list to exactly match the list that you are providing.

Possible values:

  • ADD

--domains (list)

A list of domains to use in the update operation.

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.



"string" "string" ...

--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.
