See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  list-available-managed-rule-groups
--scope <value>
[--next-marker <value>]
[--limit <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--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

--next-marker (string)

When you request a list of objects with a Limit setting, if the number of objects that are still available for retrieval exceeds the limit, AWS WAF returns a NextMarker value in the response. To retrieve the next batch of objects, provide the marker from the prior call in your next request.

--limit (integer)

The maximum number of objects that you want AWS WAF to return for this request. If more objects are available, in the response, AWS WAF provides a NextMarker value that you can use in a subsequent call to get the next batch of 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.

--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.
