A remediation exception is when a specific resource is no longer considered for auto-remediation. This API adds a new exception or updates an exisiting exception for a specific resource with a specific AWS Config rule.

See ‘aws help’ for descriptions of global parameters.


--config-rule-name <value>
--resource-keys <value>
[--message <value>]
[--expiration-time <value>]
[--cli-input-json | --cli-input-yaml]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]
[--cli-auto-prompt <value>]


--config-rule-name (string)

The name of the AWS Config rule for which you want to create remediation exception.

--resource-keys (list)

An exception list of resource exception keys to be processed with the current request. AWS Config adds exception for each resource key. For example, AWS Config adds 3 exceptions for 3 resource keys.


The details that identify a resource within AWS Config, including the resource type and resource ID.

ResourceType -> (string)

The type of a resource.

ResourceId -> (string)

The ID of the resource (for example., sg-xxxxxx).

Shorthand Syntax:

ResourceType=string,ResourceId=string ...

JSON Syntax:

    "ResourceType": "string",
    "ResourceId": "string"

--message (string)

The message contains an explanation of the exception.

--expiration-time (timestamp)

The exception is automatically deleted after the expiration date.

--cli-input-json | --cli-input-yaml (string) Reads arguments from the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, those 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. This may not be specified along with --cli-input-yaml.

--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. Similarly, if provided yaml-input it will print a sample input YAML that can be used with --cli-input-yaml. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

--cli-auto-prompt (boolean) Automatically prompt for CLI input parameters.

See ‘aws help’ for descriptions of global parameters.
