Container for the parameters to the CreateXssMatchSet operation. Creates an XssMatchSet, which you use to allow, block, or count requests that contain cross-site scripting attacks in the specified part of web requests. AWS WAF searches for character sequences that are likely to be malicious strings.

To create and configure an XssMatchSet, perform the following steps:

  1. Use GetChangeToken to get the change token that you provide in the ChangeToken parameter of a CreateXssMatchSet request.

  2. Submit a CreateXssMatchSet request.

  3. Use GetChangeToken to get the change token that you provide in the ChangeToken parameter of an UpdateXssMatchSet request.

  4. Submit an UpdateXssMatchSet request to specify the parts of web requests in which you want to allow, block, or count cross-site scripting attacks.

For more information about how to use the AWS WAF API to allow or block HTTP requests, see the AWS WAF Developer Guide.
