create-ip-set

Description

Note

This is the latest version of AWS WAF , named AWS WAFV2, released in November, 2019. For information, including how to migrate your AWS WAF resources from the prior release, see the AWS WAF Developer Guide .

Creates an IPSet , which you use to identify web requests that originate from specific IP addresses or ranges of IP addresses. For example, if you're receiving a lot of requests from a ranges of IP addresses, you can configure AWS WAF to block them using an IPSet that lists those IP addresses.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  create-ip-set
--name <value>
--scope <value>
[--description <value>]
--ip-address-version <value>
--addresses <value>
[--tags <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--name (string)

The name of the IP set. You cannot change the name of an IPSet after you create it.

--scope (string)

Specifies whether this is for an AWS CloudFront distribution or for a regional application. A regional application can be an Application Load Balancer (ALB) or an API Gateway stage.

To work with CloudFront, you must also specify the Region US East (N. Virginia) as follows:

  • CLI - Specify the Region when you use the CloudFront scope: --scope=CLOUDFRONT --region=us-east-1 .
  • API and SDKs - For all calls, use the Region endpoint us-east-1.

Possible values:

  • CLOUDFRONT
  • REGIONAL

--description (string)

A description of the IP set that helps with identification. You cannot change the description of an IP set after you create it.

--ip-address-version (string)

Specify IPV4 or IPV6.

Possible values:

  • IPV4
  • IPV6

--addresses (list)

Contains an array of strings that specify one or more IP addresses or blocks of IP addresses in Classless Inter-Domain Routing (CIDR) notation. AWS WAF supports all address ranges for IP versions IPv4 and IPv6.

Examples:

  • To configure AWS WAF to allow, block, or count requests that originated from the IP address 192.0.2.44, specify 192.0.2.44/32 .
  • To configure AWS WAF to allow, block, or count requests that originated from IP addresses from 192.0.2.0 to 192.0.2.255, specify 192.0.2.0/24 .
  • To configure AWS WAF to allow, block, or count requests that originated from the IP address 1111:0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:0111, specify 1111:0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:0111/128 .
  • To configure AWS WAF to allow, block, or count requests that originated from IP addresses 1111:0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:0000 to 1111:0000:0000:0000:ffff:ffff:ffff:ffff, specify 1111:0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:0000/64 .

(string)

Syntax:

"string" "string" ...

--tags (list)

An array of key:value pairs to associate with the resource.

(structure)

Note

This is the latest version of AWS WAF , named AWS WAFV2, released in November, 2019. For information, including how to migrate your AWS WAF resources from the prior release, see the AWS WAF Developer Guide .

A tag associated with an AWS resource. Tags are key:value pairs that you can use to categorize and manage your resources, for purposes like billing or other management. Typically, the tag key represents a category, such as "environment", and the tag value represents a specific value within that category, such as "test," "development," or "production". Or you might set the tag key to "customer" and the value to the customer name or ID. You can specify one or more tags to add to each AWS resource, up to 50 tags for a resource.

You can tag the AWS resources that you manage through AWS WAF: web ACLs, rule groups, IP sets, and regex pattern sets. You can't manage or view tags through the AWS WAF console.

Key -> (string)

Part of the key:value pair that defines a tag. You can use a tag key to describe a category of information, such as "customer." Tag keys are case-sensitive.

Value -> (string)

Part of the key:value pair that defines a tag. You can use a tag value to describe a specific value within a category, such as "companyA" or "companyB." Tag values are case-sensitive.

Shorthand Syntax:

Key=string,Value=string ...

JSON Syntax:

[
  {
    "Key": "string",
    "Value": "string"
  }
  ...
]

--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.

Examples

To create an IP set for use in your web ACLs and rule groups

The following create-ip-set command creates an IP set with a single address range specification.

aws wafv2 create-ip-set \
    --name testip \
    --scope REGIONAL \
    --ip-address-version IPV4 \
    --addresses 198.51.100.0/16

Output:

{
    "Summary":{
        "ARN":"arn:aws:wafv2:us-west-2:123456789012:regional/ipset/testip/a1b2c3d4-5678-90ab-cdef-EXAMPLE11111",
        "Description":"",
        "Name":"testip",
        "LockToken":"447e55ac-0000-0000-0000-86b67c17f8b5",
        "Id":"a1b2c3d4-5678-90ab-cdef-EXAMPLE11111"
    }
}

Output

Summary -> (structure)

High-level information about an IPSet , returned by operations like create and list. This provides information like the ID, that you can use to retrieve and manage an IPSet , and the ARN, that you provide to the IPSetReferenceStatement to use the address set in a Rule .

Name -> (string)

The name of the IP set. You cannot change the name of an IPSet after you create it.

Id -> (string)

A unique identifier for the set. This ID is returned in the responses to create and list commands. You provide it to operations like update and delete.

Description -> (string)

A description of the IP set that helps with identification. You cannot change the description of an IP set after you create it.

LockToken -> (string)

A token used for optimistic locking. AWS WAF returns a token to your get and list requests, to mark the state of the entity at the time of the request. To make changes to the entity associated with the token, you provide the token to operations like update and delete. AWS WAF uses the token to ensure that no changes have been made to the entity since you last retrieved it. If a change has been made, the update fails with a WAFOptimisticLockException . If this happens, perform another get, and use the new token returned by that operation.

ARN -> (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the entity.
