Response Syntax

{ "modelScores": [ { "modelVersion": { "arn": "string", "modelId": "string", "modelType": "string", "modelVersionNumber": "string" }, "scores": { "string" : number } } ], "ruleResults": [ { "outcomes": [ "string" ], "ruleId": "string" } ] }

Response Elements

If the action is successful, the service sends back an HTTP 200 response.

The following data is returned in JSON format by the service.


The model scores. Amazon Fraud Detector generates model scores between 0 and 1000, where 0 is low fraud risk and 1000 is high fraud risk. Model scores are directly related to the false positive rate (FPR). For example, a score of 600 corresponds to an estimated 10% false positive rate whereas a score of 900 corresponds to an estimated 2% false positive rate.
