Retrieves the keys that are currently blocked by a rate-based rule. The maximum number of managed keys that can be blocked for a single rate-based rule is 10,000. If more than 10,000 addresses exceed the rate limit, those with the highest rates are blocked.

--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:


--web-acl-name (string)

The name of the Web ACL. You cannot change the name of a Web ACL after you create it.

--web-acl-id (string)

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

--rule-name (string)

The name of the rate-based rule to get the keys for.

--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.
