  • Whether to insert or delete the RegexPatternString .

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

  • Create a RegexPatternSet. For more information, see create-regex-pattern-set .
  • Use get-change-token to get the change token that you provide in the change-token parameter of an update-regex-pattern-set request.
  • Submit an update-regex-pattern-set request to specify the regular expression pattern 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 .
