enable-application-layer-automatic-response

Description

Enable the Shield Advanced automatic application layer DDoS mitigation for the resource.

Note

This feature is available for Amazon CloudFront distributions only.

This causes Shield Advanced to create, verify, and apply WAF rules for DDoS attacks that it detects for the resource. Shield Advanced applies the rules in a Shield rule group inside the web ACL that you've associated with the resource. For information about how automatic mitigation works and the requirements for using it, see Shield Advanced automatic application layer DDoS mitigation .

Don't use this action to make changes to automatic mitigation settings when it's already enabled for a resource. Instead, use UpdateApplicationLayerAutomaticResponse .

To use this feature, you must associate a web ACL with the protected resource. The web ACL must be created using the latest version of WAF (v2). You can associate the web ACL through the Shield Advanced console at https://console.aws.amazon.com/wafv2/shieldv2#/ . For more information, see Getting Started with Shield Advanced .

You can also do this through the WAF console or the WAF API, but you must manage Shield Advanced automatic mitigation through Shield Advanced. For information about WAF, see WAF Developer Guide .

Specifies that Shield Advanced should configure its WAF rules with the WAF Block action.

You must specify exactly one action, either Block or Count .

--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.
