FirewallManagerRuleGroup - AWS WAFV2


A rule group that's defined for an AWS Firewall Manager AWS WAF policy.



The processing guidance for an AWS Firewall Manager rule. This is like a regular rule Statement, but it can only contain a rule group reference.

Type: FirewallManagerStatement object

Required: Yes


The name of the rule group. You cannot change the name of a rule group after you create it.

Type: String

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

Pattern: ^[\w\-]+$

Required: Yes


The action to use in the place of the action that results from the rule group evaluation. Set the override action to none to leave the result of the rule group alone. Set it to count to override the result to count only.

You can only use this for rule statements that reference a rule group, like RuleGroupReferenceStatement and ManagedRuleGroupStatement.


This option is usually set to none. It does not affect how the rules in the rule group are evaluated. If you want the rules in the rule group to only count matches, do not use this and instead use the rule action override option, with Count action, in your rule group reference statement settings.

Type: OverrideAction object

Required: Yes


If you define more than one rule group in the first or last Firewall Manager rule groups, AWS WAF evaluates each request against the rule groups in order, starting from the lowest priority setting. The priorities don't need to be consecutive, but they must all be different.
