batch-update-findings

Description

Used by Security Hub customers to update information about their investigation into a finding. Requested by master accounts or member accounts. Master accounts can update findings for their account and their member accounts. Member accounts can update findings for their account.

Updates from BatchUpdateFindings do not affect the value of UpdatedAt for a finding.

Master and member accounts can use BatchUpdateFindings to update the following finding fields and objects.

  • Confidence
  • Criticality
  • Note
  • RelatedFindings
  • Severity
  • Types
  • UserDefinedFields
  • VerificationState
  • Workflow

You can configure IAM policies to restrict access to fields and field values. For example, you might not want member accounts to be able to suppress findings or change the finding severity. See Configuring access to BatchUpdateFindings in the AWS Security Hub User Guide .

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Options

--finding-identifiers (list)

The list of findings to update. BatchUpdateFindings can be used to update up to 100 findings at a time.

For each finding, the list provides the finding identifier and the ARN of the finding provider.

(structure)

Identifies a finding to update using BatchUpdateFindings .

Id -> (string)

The identifier of the finding that was specified by the finding provider.

ProductArn -> (string)

The ARN generated by Security Hub that uniquely identifies a product that generates findings. This can be the ARN for a third-party product that is integrated with Security Hub, or the ARN for a custom integration.

Shorthand Syntax:

Id=string,ProductArn=string ...

JSON Syntax:

[
  {
    "Id": "string",
    "ProductArn": "string"
  }
  ...
]

--note (structure)

The updated note.

Text -> (string)

The updated note text.

UpdatedBy -> (string)

The principal that updated the note.

Shorthand Syntax:

Text=string,UpdatedBy=string

JSON Syntax:

{
  "Text": "string",
  "UpdatedBy": "string"
}

--severity (structure)

Used to update the finding severity.

Normalized -> (integer)

The normalized severity for the finding. This attribute is to be deprecated in favor of Label .

If you provide Normalized and do not provide Label , Label is set automatically as follows.

  • 0 - INFORMATIONAL
  • 1–39 - LOW
  • 40–69 - MEDIUM
  • 70–89 - HIGH
  • 90–100 - CRITICAL

Product -> (double)

The native severity as defined by the AWS service or integrated partner product that generated the finding.

Label -> (string)

The severity value of the finding. The allowed values are the following.

  • INFORMATIONAL - No issue was found.
  • LOW - The issue does not require action on its own.
  • MEDIUM - The issue must be addressed but not urgently.
  • HIGH - The issue must be addressed as a priority.
  • CRITICAL - The issue must be remediated immediately to avoid it escalating.

Shorthand Syntax:

Normalized=integer,Product=double,Label=string

JSON Syntax:

{
  "Normalized": integer,
  "Product": double,
  "Label": "INFORMATIONAL"|"LOW"|"MEDIUM"|"HIGH"|"CRITICAL"
}

--verification-state (string)

Indicates the veracity of a finding.

The available values for VerificationState are as follows.

  • UNKNOWN – The default disposition of a security finding
  • TRUE_POSITIVE – The security finding is confirmed
  • FALSE_POSITIVE – The security finding was determined to be a false alarm
  • BENIGN_POSITIVE – A special case of TRUE_POSITIVE where the finding doesn't pose any threat, is expected, or both

Possible values:

  • UNKNOWN
  • TRUE_POSITIVE
  • FALSE_POSITIVE
  • BENIGN_POSITIVE

--confidence (integer)

The updated value for the finding confidence. Confidence is defined as the likelihood that a finding accurately identifies the behavior or issue that it was intended to identify.

Confidence is scored on a 0-100 basis using a ratio scale, where 0 means zero percent confidence and 100 means 100 percent confidence.

--criticality (integer)

The updated value for the level of importance assigned to the resources associated with the findings.

A score of 0 means that the underlying resources have no criticality, and a score of 100 is reserved for the most critical resources.

--types (list)

One or more finding types in the format of namespace/category/classifier that classify a finding.

Valid namespace values are as follows.

  • Software and Configuration Checks
  • TTPs
  • Effects
  • Unusual Behaviors
  • Sensitive Data Identifications

(string)

Syntax:

"string" "string" ...

--user-defined-fields (map)

key -> (string)

value -> (string)

Shorthand Syntax:

KeyName1=string,KeyName2=string

JSON Syntax:

{"string": "string"
  ...}

--workflow (structure)

Used to update the workflow status of a finding.

The workflow status indicates the progress of the investigation into the finding.

Status -> (string)

The status of the investigation into the finding. The allowed values are the following.

  • NEW - The initial state of a finding, before it is reviewed.
  • NOTIFIED - Indicates that you notified the resource owner about the security issue. Used when the initial reviewer is not the resource owner, and needs intervention from the resource owner.
  • RESOLVED - The finding was reviewed and remediated and is now considered resolved.
  • SUPPRESSED - The finding will not be reviewed again and will not be acted upon.

Shorthand Syntax:

Status=string

JSON Syntax:

{
  "Status": "NEW"|"NOTIFIED"|"RESOLVED"|"SUPPRESSED"
}

--related-findings (list)

A list of findings that are related to the updated findings.

(structure)

Details about a related finding.

ProductArn -> (string)

The ARN of the product that generated a related finding.

Id -> (string)

The product-generated identifier for a related finding.

Shorthand Syntax:

ProductArn=string,Id=string ...

JSON Syntax:

[
  {
    "ProductArn": "string",
    "Id": "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.

Examples

Example 1: To update a finding

The following batch-update-findings example updates two findings to add a note, change the severity label, and resolve it.

aws securityhub batch-update-findings \
    --finding-identifiers '[{"Id": "arn:aws:securityhub:us-west-1:123456789012:subscription/pci-dss/v/3.2.1/PCI.Lambda.2/finding/a1b2c3d4-5678-90ab-cdef-EXAMPLE11111", "ProductArn": "arn:aws:securityhub:us-west-1::product/aws/securityhub"}, {"Id": "arn:aws:securityhub:us-west-1:123456789012:subscription/pci-dss/v/3.2.1/PCI.Lambda.2/finding/a1b2c3d4-5678-90ab-cdef-EXAMPLE22222", "ProductArn": "arn:aws:securityhub:us-west-1::product/aws/securityhub"}]' \
    --note '{"Text": "Known issue that is not a risk.", "UpdatedBy": "user1"}' \

Example 2: To update a finding using shorthand syntax

The following batch-update-findings example updates two findings to add a note, change the severity label, and resolve it using shorthand syntax.

aws securityhub batch-update-findings \
    --finding-identifiers Id="arn:aws:securityhub:us-west-1:123456789012:subscription/pci-dss/v/3.2.1/PCI.Lambda.2/finding/a1b2c3d4-5678-90ab-cdef-EXAMPLE11111",ProductArn="arn:aws:securityhub:us-west-1::product/aws/securityhub" Id="arn:aws:securityhub:us-west-1:123456789012:subscription/pci-dss/v/3.2.1/PCI.Lambda.2/finding/a1b2c3d4-5678-90ab-cdef-EXAMPLE22222",ProductArn="arn:aws:securityhub:us-west-1::product/aws/securityhub" \
    --note Text="Known issue that is not a risk.",UpdatedBy="user1" \

    --workflow Status="RESOLVED"

Output:

}
