waf_create_byte_match_set: Creates a ByteMatchSet

Description Usage Arguments Details Request syntax

View source: R/waf_operations.R

Description

Creates a ByteMatchSet. You then use UpdateByteMatchSet to identify the part of a web request that you want AWS WAF to inspect, such as the values of the User-Agent header or the query string. For example, you can create a ByteMatchSet that matches any requests with User-Agent headers that contain the string BadBot. You can then configure AWS WAF to reject those requests.

Usage

1
waf_create_byte_match_set(Name, ChangeToken)

Arguments

Name

[required] A friendly name or description of the ByteMatchSet. You can't change Name after you create a ByteMatchSet.

ChangeToken

[required] The value returned by the most recent call to GetChangeToken.

Details

To create and configure a ByteMatchSet, perform the following steps:

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

  2. Submit a CreateByteMatchSet request.

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

  4. Submit an UpdateByteMatchSet request to specify the part of the request that you want AWS WAF to inspect (for example, the header or the URI) and the value that you want AWS WAF to watch for.

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