create-geo-match-set

Description

Creates an GeoMatchSet , which you use to specify which web requests you want to allow or block based on the country that the requests originate from. For example, if you're receiving a lot of requests from one or more countries and you want to block the requests, you can create an GeoMatchSet that contains those countries and then configure AWS WAF to block the requests.

To create and configure a GeoMatchSet , perform the following steps:

  • Use GetChangeToken to get the change token that you provide in the ChangeToken parameter of a CreateGeoMatchSet request.
  • Submit a CreateGeoMatchSet request.
  • Use GetChangeToken to get the change token that you provide in the ChangeToken parameter of an UpdateGeoMatchSet request.
  • Submit an UpdateGeoMatchSetSet request to specify the countries that you want AWS WAF to watch for.

For more information about how to use the AWS WAF API to allow or block HTTP requests, see the AWS WAF Developer Guide .

Synopsis

  create-geo-match-set
--name <value>
--change-token <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--name (string)

A friendly name or description of the GeoMatchSet . You can't change Name after you create the GeoMatchSet .

--change-token (string)

The value returned by the most recent call to GetChangeToken .

--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.
