SqliMatchStatement - AWS WAFV2


A rule statement that inspects for malicious SQL code. Attackers insert malicious SQL code into web requests to do things like modify your database or extract data from it.



The part of the web request that you want AWS WAF to inspect.

Type: FieldToMatch object

Required: Yes


Text transformations eliminate some of the unusual formatting that attackers use in web requests in an effort to bypass detection. Text transformations are used in rule match statements, to transform the FieldToMatch request component before inspecting it, and they're used in rate-based rule statements, to transform request components before using them as custom aggregation keys. If you specify one or more transformations to apply, AWS WAF performs all transformations on the specified content, starting from the lowest priority setting, and then uses the transformed component contents.

Type: Array of TextTransformation objects

Array Members: Minimum number of 1 item.

Required: Yes


The sensitivity that you want AWS WAF to use to inspect for SQL injection attacks.

HIGH detects more attacks, but might generate more false positives, especially if your web requests frequently contain unusual strings. For information about identifying and mitigating false positives, see Testing and tuning in the AWS WAF Developer Guide.

LOW is generally a better choice for resources that already have other protections against SQL injection attacks or that have a low tolerance for false positives.

Default: LOW

Type: String

Valid Values: LOW | HIGH

Required: No
