RegexPatternSetReferenceStatement - AWS WAFV2

RegexPatternSetReferenceStatement

Note

This is the latest version of AWS WAF, named AWS WAFV2, released in November, 2019. For information, including how to migrate your AWS WAF resources from the prior release, see the AWS WAF Developer Guide.

A rule statement used to search web request components for matches with regular expressions. To use this, create a RegexPatternSet that specifies the expressions that you want to detect, then use the ARN of that set in this statement. A web request matches the pattern set rule statement if the request component matches any of the patterns in the set. To create a regex pattern set, see CreateRegexPatternSet.

Each regex pattern set rule statement references a regex pattern set. You create and maintain the set independent of your rules. This allows you to use the single set in multiple rules. When you update the referenced set, AWS WAF automatically updates all rules that reference it.

Contents

ARN

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the RegexPatternSet that this statement references.

Type: String

Length Constraints: Minimum length of 20. Maximum length of 2048.

Pattern: .*\S.*

Required: Yes

FieldToMatch

The part of a web request that you want AWS WAF to inspect. For more information, see FieldToMatch.

Type: FieldToMatch object

Required: Yes

TextTransformations

Text transformations eliminate some of the unusual formatting that attackers use in web requests in an effort to bypass detection. If you specify one or more transformations in a rule statement, AWS WAF performs all transformations on the content of the request component identified by FieldToMatch, starting from the lowest priority setting, before inspecting the content for a match.

Type: Array of TextTransformation objects

Array Members: Minimum number of 1 item.

Required: Yes
