Parameters

Explanation in CloudFormation Registry

Note This is AWS WAF Classic documentation. For more information, see AWS WAF Classic in the developer guide. For the latest version of AWS WAF , use the AWS WAFV2 API and see the AWS WAF Developer Guide. With the latest version, AWS WAF has a single set of endpoints for regional and global use. A combination of ByteMatchSet, IPSet, and/or SqlInjectionMatchSet objects that identify the web requests that you want to allow, block, or count. For example, you might create a Rule that includes the following predicates:+ An IPSet that causes AWS WAF to search for web requests that originate from the IP address 192.0.2.44 + A ByteMatchSet that causes AWS WAF to search for web requests for which the value of the User-Agent header is BadBot.

To match the settings in this Rule, a request must originate from 192.0.2.44 AND include a User-Agent header for which the value is BadBot.
