DescribeRuleGroupMetadata - AWS Network Firewall

DescribeRuleGroupMetadata

High-level information about a rule group, returned by operations like create and describe. You can use the information provided in the metadata to retrieve and manage a rule group. You can retrieve all objects for a rule group by calling DescribeRuleGroup.

Request Syntax

{ "RuleGroupArn": "string", "RuleGroupName": "string", "Type": "string" }

Request Parameters

For information about the parameters that are common to all actions, see Common Parameters.

The request accepts the following data in JSON format.

RuleGroupArn

The descriptive name of the rule group. You can't change the name of a rule group after you create it.

You must specify the ARN or the name, and you can specify both.

Type: String

Length Constraints: Minimum length of 1. Maximum length of 256.

Pattern: ^arn:aws.*

Required: No

RuleGroupName

The descriptive name of the rule group. You can't change the name of a rule group after you create it.

Type: String

Length Constraints: Minimum length of 1. Maximum length of 128.

Type

Indicates whether the rule group is stateless or stateful. If the rule group is stateless, it contains stateless rules. If it is stateful, it contains stateful rules.

Response Syntax

{ "Capacity": number, "Description": "string", "LastModifiedTime": number, "RuleGroupArn": "string", "RuleGroupName": "string", "StatefulRuleOptions": { "RuleOrder": "string" }, "Type": "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.

Capacity

The maximum operating resources that this rule group can use. Rule group capacity is fixed at creation. When you update a rule group, you are limited to this capacity. When you reference a rule group from a firewall policy, Network Firewall reserves this capacity for the rule group.

You can retrieve the capacity that would be required for a rule group before you create the rule group by calling CreateRuleGroup with DryRun set to TRUE.

Type: Integer

LastModifiedTime

The last time that the rule group was changed.
