Description

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  list-protection-groups
[--next-token <value>]
[--max-results <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--next-token (string)

When you request a list of objects from Shield Advanced, if the response does not include all of the remaining available objects, Shield Advanced includes a NextToken value in the response. You can retrieve the next batch of objects by requesting the list again and providing the token that was returned by the prior call in your request.

You can indicate the maximum number of objects that you want Shield Advanced to return for a single call with the MaxResults setting. Shield Advanced will not return more than MaxResults objects, but may return fewer, even if more objects are still available.

Whenever more objects remain that Shield Advanced has not yet returned to you, the response will include a NextToken value.

On your first call to a list operation, leave this setting empty.

--max-results (integer)

The greatest number of objects that you want Shield Advanced to return to the list request. Shield Advanced might return fewer objects than you indicate in this setting, even if more objects are available. If there are more objects remaining, Shield Advanced will always also return a NextToken value in the response.

The default setting is 20.

--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.

Output

ProtectionGroups -> (list)

(structure)

A grouping of protected resources that you and Shield Advanced can monitor as a collective. This resource grouping improves the accuracy of detection and reduces false positives.

ProtectionGroupId -> (string)

The name of the protection group. You use this to identify the protection group in lists and to manage the protection group, for example to update, delete, or describe it.

Aggregation -> (string)

Defines how Shield combines resource data for the group in order to detect, mitigate, and report events.

  • Sum - Use the total traffic across the group. This is a good choice for most cases. Examples include Elastic IP addresses for EC2 instances that scale manually or automatically.
  • Mean - Use the average of the traffic across the group. This is a good choice for resources that share traffic uniformly. Examples include accelerators and load balancers.
  • Max - Use the highest traffic from each resource. This is useful for resources that don't share traffic and for resources that share that traffic in a non-uniform way. Examples include Amazon CloudFront distributions and origin resources for CloudFront distributions.

Pattern -> (string)

The criteria to use to choose the protected resources for inclusion in the group. You can include all resources that have protections, provide a list of resource Amazon Resource Names (ARNs), or include all resources of a specified resource type.

ResourceType -> (string)

The resource type to include in the protection group. All protected resources of this type are included in the protection group. You must set this when you set Pattern to BY_RESOURCE_TYPE and you must not set it for any other Pattern setting.

Members -> (list)

The Amazon Resource Names (ARNs) of the resources to include in the protection group. You must set this when you set Pattern to ARBITRARY and you must not set it for any other Pattern setting.

(string)

ProtectionGroupArn -> (string)

The ARN (Amazon Resource Name) of the protection group.

NextToken -> (string)

When you request a list of objects from Shield Advanced, if the response does not include all of the remaining available objects, Shield Advanced includes a NextToken value in the response. You can retrieve the next batch of objects by requesting the list again and providing the token that was returned by the prior call in your request.

You can indicate the maximum number of objects that you want Shield Advanced to return for a single call with the MaxResults setting. Shield Advanced will not return more than MaxResults objects, but may return fewer, even if more objects are still available.

Whenever more objects remain that Shield Advanced has not yet returned to you, the response will include a NextToken value.
