put-compliance-items

Description

Registers a compliance type and other compliance details on a designated resource. This action lets you register custom compliance details with a resource. This call overwrites existing compliance information on the resource, so you must provide a full list of compliance items each time that you send the request.

ComplianceType can be one of the following:

  • ExecutionId: The execution ID when the patch, association, or custom compliance item was applied.
  • ExecutionType: Specify patch, association, or Custom:string .
  • ExecutionTime. The time the patch, association, or custom compliance item was applied to the instance.
  • Id: The patch, association, or custom compliance ID.
  • Title: A title.
  • Status: The status of the compliance item. For example, approved for patches, or Failed for associations.
  • Severity: A patch severity. For example, critical .
  • DocumentName: A SSM document name. For example, AWS-RunPatchBaseline.
  • DocumentVersion: An SSM document version number. For example, 4.
  • Classification: A patch classification. For example, security updates .
  • PatchBaselineId: A patch baseline ID.
  • PatchSeverity: A patch severity. For example, Critical .
  • PatchState: A patch state. For example, InstancesWithFailedPatches .
  • PatchGroup: The name of a patch group.
  • InstalledTime: The time the association, patch, or custom compliance item was applied to the resource. Specify the time by using the following format: yyyy-MM-dd'T'HH:mm:ss'Z'

Options

--resource-id (string)

Specify an ID for this resource. For a managed instance, this is the instance ID.

--resource-type (string)

Specify the type of resource. ManagedInstance is currently the only supported resource type.

--compliance-type (string)

Specify the compliance type. For example, specify Association (for a State Manager association), Patch, or Custom:string .

--execution-summary (structure)

A summary of the call execution that includes an execution ID, the type of execution (for example, Command ), and the date/time of the execution using a datetime object that is saved in the following format: yyyy-MM-dd'T'HH:mm:ss'Z'.

ExecutionTime -> (timestamp)

The time the execution ran as a datetime object that is saved in the following format: yyyy-MM-dd'T'HH:mm:ss'Z'.

ExecutionId -> (string)

An ID created by the system when PutComplianceItems was called. For example, CommandID is a valid execution ID. You can use this ID in subsequent calls.

ExecutionType -> (string)

The type of execution. For example, Command is a valid execution type.

Shorthand Syntax:

ExecutionTime=timestamp,ExecutionId=string,ExecutionType=string

JSON Syntax:

{
  "ExecutionTime": timestamp,
  "ExecutionId": "string",
  "ExecutionType": "string"
}

--items (list)

Information about the compliance as defined by the resource type. For example, for a patch compliance type, Items includes information about the PatchSeverity, Classification, and so on.

(structure)

Information about a compliance item.

Id -> (string)

The compliance item ID. For example, if the compliance item is a Windows patch, the ID could be the number of the KB article.

Title -> (string)

The title of the compliance item. For example, if the compliance item is a Windows patch, the title could be the title of the KB article for the patch; for example: Security Update for Active Directory Federation Services.

Severity -> (string)

The severity of the compliance status. Severity can be one of the following: Critical, High, Medium, Low, Informational, Unspecified.

Status -> (string)

The status of the compliance item. An item is either COMPLIANT or NON_COMPLIANT.

Details -> (map)

A "Key": "Value" tag combination for the compliance item.

key -> (string)

value -> (string)

Shorthand Syntax:

Id=string,Title=string,Severity=string,Status=string,Details={KeyName1=string,KeyName2=string} ...

JSON Syntax:

[
  {
    "Id": "string",
    "Title": "string",
    "Severity": "CRITICAL"|"HIGH"|"MEDIUM"|"LOW"|"INFORMATIONAL"|"UNSPECIFIED",
    "Status": "COMPLIANT"|"NON_COMPLIANT",
    "Details": {"string": "string"
      ...}
  }
  ...
]

--item-content-hash (string)

MD5 or SHA-256 content hash. The content hash is used to determine if existing information should be overwritten or ignored. If the content hashes match, the request to put compliance information is ignored.

--upload-type (string)

The mode for uploading compliance items. You can specify COMPLETE or PARTIAL . In COMPLETE mode, the system overwrites all existing compliance information for the resource. You must provide a full list of compliance items each time you send the request.

In PARTIAL mode, the system overwrites compliance information for a specific association. The association must be configured with SyncCompliance set to MANUAL . By default, all requests use COMPLETE mode.

Note

This attribute is only valid for association compliance.

Possible values:

  • COMPLETE
  • PARTIAL

--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 register a compliance type and compliance details to a designated instance

This example registers the compliance type Custom:AVCheck to the specified managed instance. There is no output if the command succeeds.

Command:

aws ssm put-compliance-items --resource-id "i-1234567890abcdef0" --resource-type "ManagedInstance" --compliance-type "Custom:AVCheck" --execution-summary "ExecutionTime=2019-02-18T16:00:00Z" --items "Id=Version2.0,Title=ScanHost,Severity=CRITICAL,Status=COMPLIANT"

Output

None
