» Arguments

  • field_to_match - (Required) The part of a web request that you want to search, such as a specified header or a query string.
  • positional_constraint - (Required) Within the portion of a web request that you want to search (for example, in the query string, if any), specify where you want to search. e.g. CONTAINS, CONTAINS_WORD or EXACTLY. See docs for all supported values.
  • target_string - (Optional) The value that you want to search for. e.g. HEADER, METHOD or BODY. See docs for all supported values.
  • text_transformation - (Required) Text transformations used to eliminate unusual formatting that attackers use in web requests in an effort to bypass AWS WAF. If you specify a transformation, AWS WAF performs the transformation on target_string before inspecting a request for a match. e.g. CMD_LINE, HTML_ENTITY_DECODE or NONE. See docs for all supported values.
