get-rule

Description

Note

This is AWS WAF Classic documentation. For more information, see AWS WAF Classic in the developer guide.

For the latest version of AWS WAF , use the AWS WAFV2 API and see the AWS WAF Developer Guide . With the latest version, AWS WAF has a single set of endpoints for regional and global use.

Returns the Rule that is specified by the RuleId that you included in the GetRule request.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  get-rule
--rule-id <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--rule-id (string)

The RuleId of the Rule that you want to get. RuleId is returned by CreateRule and by ListRules .

--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.

Output

Rule -> (structure)

Information about the Rule that you specified in the GetRule request. For more information, see the following topics:

  • Rule : Contains MetricName , Name , an array of Predicate objects, and RuleId
  • Predicate : Each Predicate object contains DataId , Negated , and Type

RuleId -> (string)

A unique identifier for a Rule . You use RuleId to get more information about a Rule (see GetRule ), update a Rule (see UpdateRule ), insert a Rule into a WebACL or delete a one from a WebACL (see UpdateWebACL ), or delete a Rule from AWS WAF (see DeleteRule ).

RuleId is returned by CreateRule and by ListRules .

Name -> (string)

The friendly name or description for the Rule . You can't change the name of a Rule after you create it.

MetricName -> (string)

A friendly name or description for the metrics for this Rule . The name can contain only alphanumeric characters (A-Z, a-z, 0-9), with maximum length 128 and minimum length one. It can't contain whitespace or metric names reserved for AWS WAF, including "All" and "Default_Action." You can't change MetricName after you create the Rule .

Predicates -> (list)

The Predicates object contains one Predicate element for each ByteMatchSet , IPSet , or SqlInjectionMatchSet object that you want to include in a Rule .

Note

This is AWS WAF Classic documentation. For more information, see AWS WAF Classic in the developer guide.

For the latest version of AWS WAF , use the AWS WAFV2 API and see the AWS WAF Developer Guide . With the latest version, AWS WAF has a single set of endpoints for regional and global use.

Specifies the ByteMatchSet , IPSet , SqlInjectionMatchSet , XssMatchSet , RegexMatchSet , GeoMatchSet , and SizeConstraintSet objects that you want to add to a Rule and, for each object, indicates whether you want to negate the settings, for example, requests that do NOT originate from the IP address 192.0.2.44.

Negated -> (boolean)

Set Negated to False if you want AWS WAF to allow, block, or count requests based on the settings in the specified ByteMatchSet , IPSet , SqlInjectionMatchSet , XssMatchSet , RegexMatchSet , GeoMatchSet , or SizeConstraintSet . For example, if an IPSet includes the IP address 192.0.2.44 , AWS WAF will allow or block requests based on that IP address.

Set Negated to True if you want AWS WAF to allow or block a request based on the negation of the settings in the ByteMatchSet , IPSet , SqlInjectionMatchSet , XssMatchSet , RegexMatchSet , GeoMatchSet , or SizeConstraintSet . For example, if an IPSet includes the IP address 192.0.2.44 , AWS WAF will allow, block, or count requests based on all IP addresses except 192.0.2.44 .

Type -> (string)

The type of predicate in a Rule , such as ByteMatch or IPSet .

DataId -> (string)

A unique identifier for a predicate in a Rule , such as ByteMatchSetId or IPSetId . The ID is returned by the corresponding Create or List command.
