[ aws . fms ]



Returns an array of PolicySummary objects.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See ‘aws help’ for descriptions of global parameters.

list-policies is a paginated operation. Multiple API calls may be issued in order to retrieve the entire data set of results. You can disable pagination by providing the --no-paginate argument. When using --output text and the --query argument on a paginated response, the --query argument must extract data from the results of the following query expressions: PolicyList


[--cli-input-json | --cli-input-yaml]
[--starting-token <value>]
[--page-size <value>]
[--max-items <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]
[--cli-auto-prompt <value>]


--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.

--starting-token (string)

A token to specify where to start paginating. This is the NextToken from a previously truncated response.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--page-size (integer)

The size of each page to get in the AWS service call. This does not affect the number of items returned in the command’s output. Setting a smaller page size results in more calls to the AWS service, retrieving fewer items in each call. This can help prevent the AWS service calls from timing out.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--max-items (integer)

The total number of items to return in the command’s output. If the total number of items available is more than the value specified, a NextToken is provided in the command’s output. To resume pagination, provide the NextToken value in the starting-token argument of a subsequent command. Do not use the NextToken response element directly outside of the AWS CLI.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--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.


To retrieve all Firewall Manager policies

The following list-policies example retrieves the list of policies for the account. In this example, the output is limited to two results per request. Each call returns a NextToken that can be used as the value for the --starting-token parameter in the next list-policies call to get the next set of results for the list.

aws fms list-policies \
    --max-items 2

For more information, see Working with AWS Firewall Manager Policies in the AWS WAF, AWS Firewall Manager, and AWS Shield Advanced Developer Guide.


PolicyList -> (list)

An array of PolicySummary objects.


Details of the AWS Firewall Manager policy.

PolicyArn -> (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the specified policy.

PolicyId -> (string)

The ID of the specified policy.

PolicyName -> (string)

The name of the specified policy.

ResourceType -> (string)

The type of resource protected by or in scope of the policy. This is in the format shown in the AWS Resource Types Reference . For AWS WAF and Shield Advanced, examples include AWS::ElasticLoadBalancingV2::LoadBalancer and AWS::CloudFront::Distribution . For a security group common policy, valid values are AWS::EC2::NetworkInterface and AWS::EC2::Instance . For a security group content audit policy, valid values are AWS::EC2::SecurityGroup , AWS::EC2::NetworkInterface , and AWS::EC2::Instance . For a security group usage audit policy, the value is AWS::EC2::SecurityGroup .

SecurityServiceType -> (string)

The service that the policy is using to protect the resources. This specifies the type of policy that is created, either an AWS WAF policy, a Shield Advanced policy, or a security group policy.

RemediationEnabled -> (boolean)

Indicates if the policy should be automatically applied to new resources.

NextToken -> (string)

If you have more PolicySummary objects than the number that you specified for MaxResults in the request, the response includes a NextToken value. To list more PolicySummary objects, submit another ListPolicies request, and specify the NextToken value from the response in the NextToken value in the next request.
