list-activated-rules-in-rule-group

Description

Returns an array of ActivatedRule objects.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

list-activated-rules-in-rule-group is a paginated operation. Multiple API calls may be issued in order to retrieve the entire data set of results. You can disable pagination by providing the --no-paginate argument. When using --output text and the --query argument on a paginated response, the --query argument must extract data from the results of the following query expressions: ActivatedRules

Synopsis

  list-activated-rules-in-rule-group
[--rule-group-id <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--starting-token <value>]
[--page-size <value>]
[--max-items <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--rule-group-id (string)

The RuleGroupId of the RuleGroup for which you want to get a list of ActivatedRule objects.

--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.

--starting-token (string)

A token to specify where to start paginating. This is the NextToken from a previously truncated response.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--page-size (integer)

The size of each page to get in the AWS service call. This does not affect the number of items returned in the command's output. Setting a smaller page size results in more calls to the AWS service, retrieving fewer items in each call. This can help prevent the AWS service calls from timing out.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--max-items (integer)

The total number of items to return in the command's output. If the total number of items available is more than the value specified, a NextToken is provided in the command's output. To resume pagination, provide the NextToken value in the starting-token argument of a subsequent command. Do not use the NextToken response element directly outside of the AWS CLI.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--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

NextMarker -> (string)

If you have more ActivatedRules than the number that you specified for Limit in the request, the response includes a NextMarker value. To list more ActivatedRules , submit another ListActivatedRulesInRuleGroup request, and specify the NextMarker value from the response in the NextMarker value in the next request.

ActivatedRules -> (list)

An array of ActivatedRules objects.

(structure)

The ActivatedRule object in an UpdateWebACL request specifies a Rule that you want to insert or delete, the priority of the Rule in the WebACL , and the action that you want AWS WAF to take when a web request matches the Rule (ALLOW , BLOCK , or COUNT ).

To specify whether to insert or delete a Rule , use the Action parameter in the WebACLUpdate data type.

Priority -> (integer)

Specifies the order in which the Rules in a WebACL are evaluated. Rules with a lower value for Priority are evaluated before Rules with a higher value. The value must be a unique integer. If you add multiple Rules to a WebACL , the values don't need to be consecutive.

RuleId -> (string)

The RuleId 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 .

Action -> (structure)

Specifies the action that CloudFront or AWS WAF takes when a web request matches the conditions in the Rule . Valid values for Action include the following:

  • ALLOW : CloudFront responds with the requested object.
  • BLOCK : CloudFront responds with an HTTP 403 (Forbidden) status code.
  • COUNT : AWS WAF increments a counter of requests that match the conditions in the rule and then continues to inspect the web request based on the remaining rules in the web ACL.
ActivatedRule|OverrideAction applies only when updating or adding a RuleGroup to a WebACL . In this case, you do not use ActivatedRule|Action . For all other update requests, ActivatedRule|Action is used instead of ActivatedRule|OverrideAction .

Type -> (string)

Specifies how you want AWS WAF to respond to requests that match the settings in a Rule . Valid settings include the following:

  • ALLOW : AWS WAF allows requests
  • BLOCK : AWS WAF blocks requests
  • COUNT : AWS WAF increments a counter of the requests that match all of the conditions in the rule. AWS WAF then continues to inspect the web request based on the remaining rules in the web ACL. You can't specify COUNT for the default action for a WebACL .

OverrideAction -> (structure)

Use the OverrideAction to test your RuleGroup .

Any rule in a RuleGroup can potentially block a request. If you set the OverrideAction to None , the RuleGroup will block a request if any individual rule in the RuleGroup matches the request and is configured to block that request. However if you first want to test the RuleGroup , set the OverrideAction to Count . The RuleGroup will then override any block action specified by individual rules contained within the group. Instead of blocking matching requests, those requests will be counted. You can view a record of counted requests using GetSampledRequests .

ActivatedRule|OverrideAction applies only when updating or adding a RuleGroup to a WebACL . In this case you do not use ActivatedRule|Action . For all other update requests, ActivatedRule|Action is used instead of ActivatedRule|OverrideAction .

Type -> (string)

COUNT overrides the action specified by the individual rule within a RuleGroup . If set to NONE , the rule's action will take place.

Type -> (string)

The rule type, either REGULAR , as defined by Rule , RATE_BASED , as defined by RateBasedRule , or GROUP , as defined by RuleGroup . The default is REGULAR. Although this field is optional, be aware that if you try to add a RATE_BASED rule to a web ACL without setting the type, the UpdateWebACL request will fail because the request tries to add a REGULAR rule with the specified ID, which does not exist.

ExcludedRules -> (list)

An array of rules to exclude from a rule group. This is applicable only when the ActivatedRule refers to a RuleGroup .

Sometimes it is necessary to troubleshoot rule groups that are blocking traffic unexpectedly (false positives). One troubleshooting technique is to identify the specific rule within the rule group that is blocking the legitimate traffic and then disable (exclude) that particular rule. You can exclude rules from both your own rule groups and AWS Marketplace rule groups that have been associated with a web ACL.

Specifying ExcludedRules does not remove those rules from the rule group. Rather, it changes the action for the rules to COUNT . Therefore, requests that match an ExcludedRule are counted but not blocked. The RuleGroup owner will receive COUNT metrics for each ExcludedRule .

If you want to exclude rules from a rule group that is already associated with a web ACL, perform the following steps:

  • Use the AWS WAF logs to identify the IDs of the rules that you want to exclude. For more information about the logs, see Logging Web ACL Traffic Information .
  • Submit an UpdateWebACL request that has two actions:
    • The first action deletes the existing rule group from the web ACL. That is, in the UpdateWebACL request, the first Updates:Action should be DELETE and Updates:ActivatedRule:RuleId should be the rule group that contains the rules that you want to exclude.
    • The second action inserts the same rule group back in, but specifying the rules to exclude. That is, the second Updates:Action should be INSERT , Updates:ActivatedRule:RuleId should be the rule group that you just removed, and ExcludedRules should contain the rules that you want to exclude.

(structure)

The rule to exclude from a rule group. This is applicable only when the ActivatedRule refers to a RuleGroup . The rule must belong to the RuleGroup that is specified by the ActivatedRule .

RuleId -> (string)

The unique identifier for the rule to exclude from the rule group.
