This is AWS WAF Classic documentation. For more information, see AWS WAF Classic in the developer guide.

For the latest version of AWS WAF, use the AWS WAFV2 API and see the AWS WAF Developer Guide. With the latest version, AWS WAF has a single set of endpoints for regional and global use.

In a GetRegexMatchSet request, RegexMatchSet is a complex type that contains the RegexMatchSetId and Name of a RegexMatchSet, and the values that you specified when you updated the RegexMatchSet.

The values are contained in a RegexMatchTuple object, which specify the parts of web requests that you want AWS WAF to inspect and the values that you want AWS WAF to search for. If a RegexMatchSet contains more than one RegexMatchTuple object, a request needs to match the settings in only one ByteMatchTuple to be considered a match.
