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.

Attaches an IAM policy to the specified resource. The only supported use for this action is to share a RuleGroup across accounts.

The PutPermissionPolicy is subject to the following restrictions:

  • You can attach only one policy with each PutPermissionPolicy request.
  • The policy must include an Effect , Action and Principal .
  • Effect must specify Allow .
  • The Action in the policy must be waf:UpdateWebACL , waf-regional:UpdateWebACL , waf:GetRuleGroup and waf-regional:GetRuleGroup . Any extra or wildcard actions in the policy will be rejected.
  • The policy cannot include a Resource parameter.
  • The ARN in the request must be a valid WAF RuleGroup ARN and the RuleGroup must exist in the same region.
  • The user making the request must be the owner of the RuleGroup.
  • Your policy must be composed using IAM Policy version 2012-10-17.

For more information, see IAM Policies .

An example of a valid policy parameter is shown in the Examples section below.

Synopsis

  put-permission-policy
--resource-arn <value>
--policy <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--resource-arn (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the RuleGroup to which you want to attach the policy.

--policy (string)

The policy to attach to the specified RuleGroup.

--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.
