--approved-patches-compliance-level (string)

Assigns a new compliance severity level to an existing patch baseline.

Possible values:

  • CRITICAL
  • HIGH

  • LOW
  • INFORMATIONAL
  • UNSPECIFIED

--approved-patches-enable-non-security | --no-approved-patches-enable-non-security (boolean)

Indicates whether the list of approved patches includes non-security updates that should be applied to the instances. The default value is 'false'. Applies to Linux instances only.

--rejected-patches-action (string)

The action for Patch Manager to take on patches included in the RejectedPackages list.

  • ALLOW_AS_DEPENDENCY : A package in the Rejected patches list is installed only if it is a dependency of another package. It is considered compliant with the patch baseline, and its status is reported as InstalledOther . This is the default action if no option is specified.
  • BLOCK : Packages in the RejectedPatches list, and packages that include them as dependencies, are not installed under any circumstances. If a package was installed before it was added to the Rejected patches list, it is considered non-compliant with the patch baseline, and its status is reported as InstalledRejected .

Possible values:

  • ALLOW_AS_DEPENDENCY
  • BLOCK

--description (string)

A description of the patch baseline.

--replace | --no-replace (boolean)

If True, then all fields that are required by the CreatePatchBaseline action are also required for this API request. Optional fields that are not specified are set to null.

--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 rename a patch baseline

This example renames a patch baseline.

Command:

aws ssm update-patch-baseline --baseline-id "pb-0713accee01234567" --name "Windows-Server-2012-R2-Important-and-Critical-Security-Updates"

Output

BaselineId -> (string)

The ID of the deleted patch baseline.

Name -> (string)

The name of the patch baseline.

OperatingSystem -> (string)

GlobalFilters -> (structure)

A set of global filters used to exclude patches from the baseline.

PatchFilters -> (list)

The set of patch filters that make up the group.

(structure)

Defines which patches should be included in a patch baseline.

A patch filter consists of a key and a set of values. The filter key is a patch property. For example, the available filter keys for WINDOWS are PATCH_SET, PRODUCT, PRODUCT_FAMILY, CLASSIFICATION, and MSRC_SEVERITY. The filter values define a matching criterion for the patch property indicated by the key. For example, if the filter key is PRODUCT and the filter values are ["Office 2013", "Office 2016"], then the filter accepts all patches where product name is either "Office 2013" or "Office 2016". The filter values can be exact values for the patch property given as a key, or a wildcard (*), which matches all values.

You can view lists of valid values for the patch properties by running the DescribePatchProperties command. For information about which patch properties can be used with each major operating system, see DescribePatchProperties .
