aws wafv2 create-web-acl

Creates a WebACL per the specifications provided. A Web ACL defines a collection of rules to use to inspect and control web requests. Each rule has an action defined (allow, block, or count) for requests that match the statement of the rule. In the Web ACL, you assign a default action to take (allow, block) for any request that does not match any of the rules. The rules in a Web ACL can be a combination of the types Rule, RuleGroup, and managed rule group. You can associate a Web ACL with one or more AWS resources to protect. The resources can be Amazon CloudFront, an Amazon API Gateway REST API, an Application Load Balancer, or an AWS AppSync GraphQL API


--name <string>The name of the Web ACL. You cannot change the name of a Web ACL after you create it
--scope <string>Specifies whether this is for an AWS CloudFront distribution or for a regional application. A regional application can be an Application Load Balancer (ALB), an API Gateway REST API, or an AppSync GraphQL API. To work with CloudFront, you must also specify the Region US East (N. Virginia) as follows: CLI - Specify the Region when you use the CloudFront scope: --scope=CLOUDFRONT --region=us-east-1. API and SDKs - For all calls, use the Region endpoint us-east-1
--default-action <structure>The action to perform if none of the Rules contained in the WebACL match
--description <string>A description of the Web ACL that helps with identification
--rules <list>The Rule statements used to identify the web requests that you want to allow, block, or count. Each rule includes one top-level statement that AWS WAF uses to identify matching web requests, and parameters that govern how AWS WAF handles them
--visibility-config <structure>Defines and enables Amazon CloudWatch metrics and web request sample collection
--tags <list>An array of key:value pairs to associate with the resource
--custom-response-bodies <map>A map of custom response keys and content bodies. When you create a rule with a block action, you can send a custom response to the web request. You define these for the web ACL, and then use them in the rules and default actions that you define in the web ACL. For information about customizing web requests and responses, see Customizing web requests and responses in AWS WAF in the AWS WAF Developer Guide. For information about the limits on count and size for custom request and response settings, see AWS WAF quotas in the AWS WAF Developer Guide
--cli-input-json <string>Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by ``--generate-cli-skeleton``. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally
--generate-cli-skeleton <string>Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value ``input``, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for ``--cli-input-json``. If provided with the value ``output``, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command
