.NET Framework 3.5
Adds or updates an AWS Config rule for evaluating whether your AWS resources comply with your desired configurations.

You can use this action for customer managed Config rules and AWS managed Config rules. A customer managed Config rule is a custom rule that you develop and maintain. An AWS managed Config rule is a customizable, predefined rule that is provided by AWS Config.

If you are adding a new customer managed Config rule, you must first create the AWS Lambda function that the rule invokes to evaluate your resources. When you use the PutConfigRule action to add the rule to AWS Config, you must specify the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) that AWS Lambda assigns to the function. Specify the ARN for the SourceIdentifier key. This key is part of the Source object, which is part of the ConfigRule object.

If you are adding a new AWS managed Config rule, specify the rule's identifier for the SourceIdentifier key. To reference AWS managed Config rule identifiers, see Using AWS Managed Config Rules.

For any new rule that you add, specify the ConfigRuleName in the ConfigRule object. Do not specify the ConfigRuleArn or the ConfigRuleId. These values are generated by AWS Config for new rules.

If you are updating a rule that you have added previously, specify the rule's ConfigRuleName, ConfigRuleId, or ConfigRuleArn in the ConfigRule data type that you use in this request.

The maximum number of rules that AWS Config supports is 25.

For more information about developing and using AWS Config rules, see Evaluating AWS Resource Configurations with AWS Config in the AWS Config Developer Guide.
