NAME

Paws::WAF::FieldToMatch

USAGE

This class represents one of two things:

Arguments in a call to a service

Use the attributes of this class as arguments to methods. You shouldn't make instances of this class. Each attribute should be used as a named argument in the calls that expect this type of object.

As an example, if Att1 is expected to be a Paws::WAF::FieldToMatch object:

  $service_obj->Method(Att1 => { Data => $value, ..., Type => $value  });

Results returned from an API call

Use accessors for each attribute. If Att1 is expected to be an Paws::WAF::FieldToMatch object:

  $result = $service_obj->Method(...);
  $result->Att1->Data

DESCRIPTION

Specifies where in a web request to look for TargetString.

ATTRIBUTES

Data => Str

  When the value of C<Type> is C<HEADER>, enter the name of the header
that you want AWS WAF to search, for example, C<User-Agent> or
C<Referer>. The name of the header is not case sensitive.

When the value of Type is SINGLE_QUERY_ARG, enter the name of the parameter that you want AWS WAF to search, for example, UserName or SalesRegion. The parameter name is not case sensitive.

If the value of Type is any other value, omit Data.

REQUIRED Type => Str

  The part of the web request that you want AWS WAF to search for a
specified string. Parts of a request that you can search include the
following:
  • HEADER: A specified request header, for example, the value of the User-Agent or Referer header. If you choose HEADER for the type, specify the name of the header in Data.

  • METHOD: The HTTP method, which indicated the type of operation that the request is asking the origin to perform. Amazon CloudFront supports the following methods: DELETE, GET, HEAD, OPTIONS, PATCH, POST, and PUT.

  • QUERY_STRING: A query string, which is the part of a URL that appears after a ? character, if any.

  • URI: The part of a web request that identifies a resource, for example, /images/daily-ad.jpg.

  • BODY: The part of a request that contains any additional data that you want to send to your web server as the HTTP request body, such as data from a form. The request body immediately follows the request headers. Note that only the first 8192 bytes of the request body are forwarded to AWS WAF for inspection. To allow or block requests based on the length of the body, you can create a size constraint set. For more information, see CreateSizeConstraintSet.

  • SINGLE_QUERY_ARG: The parameter in the query string that you will inspect, such as UserName or SalesRegion. The maximum length for SINGLE_QUERY_ARG is 30 characters.

  • ALL_QUERY_ARGS: Similar to SINGLE_QUERY_ARG, but rather than inspecting a single parameter, AWS WAF will inspect all parameters within the query for the value or regex pattern that you specify in TargetString.
