--control-id (string)

The identifier for the control.

--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. The generated JSON skeleton is not stable between versions of the AWS CLI and there are no backwards compatibility guarantees in the JSON skeleton generated.

Global Options

--debug (boolean)

Turn on debug logging.

--endpoint-url (string)

Override command’s default URL with the given URL.

--no-verify-ssl (boolean)

By default, the AWS CLI uses SSL when communicating with AWS services. For each SSL connection, the AWS CLI will verify SSL certificates. This option overrides the default behavior of verifying SSL certificates.

--no-paginate (boolean)

Disable automatic pagination.

--output (string)

The formatting style for command output.

  • json

  • text

  • table

  • yaml

  • yaml-stream

--query (string)

A JMESPath query to use in filtering the response data.

--profile (string)

Use a specific profile from your credential file.

--region (string)

The region to use. Overrides config/env settings.

--version (string)

Display the version of this tool.

--color (string)

Turn on/off color output.

  • on

  • off

  • auto

--no-sign-request (boolean)

Do not sign requests. Credentials will not be loaded if this argument is provided.

--ca-bundle (string)

The CA certificate bundle to use when verifying SSL certificates. Overrides config/env settings.

--cli-read-timeout (int)

The maximum socket read time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket read will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

--cli-connect-timeout (int)

The maximum socket connect time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket connect will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

--cli-binary-format (string)

The formatting style to be used for binary blobs. The default format is base64. The base64 format expects binary blobs to be provided as a base64 encoded string. The raw-in-base64-out format preserves compatibility with AWS CLI V1 behavior and binary values must be passed literally. When providing contents from a file that map to a binary blob fileb:// will always be treated as binary and use the file contents directly regardless of the cli-binary-format setting. When using file:// the file contents will need to properly formatted for the configured cli-binary-format.

  • base64

  • raw-in-base64-out

--no-cli-pager (boolean)

Disable cli pager for output.

--cli-auto-prompt (boolean)

Automatically prompt for CLI input parameters.

--no-cli-auto-prompt (boolean)

Disable automatically prompt for CLI input parameters.

The data source that determines where Audit Manager collects evidence from for the control.

sourceId -> (string)

The unique identifier for the source.

sourceName -> (string)

The name of the source.

sourceDescription -> (string)

The description of the source.

sourceSetUpOption -> (string)

The setup option for the data source. This option reflects if the evidence collection is automated or manual.

sourceType -> (string)

Specifies one of the five data source types for evidence collection.

sourceKeyword -> (structure)

The keyword to search for in CloudTrail logs, Config rules, Security Hub checks, and Amazon Web Services API names.

To learn more about the supported keywords that you can use when mapping a control data source, see the following pages in the Audit Manager User Guide :

keywordInputType -> (string)

The input method for the keyword.

keywordValue -> (string)

The value of the keyword that’s used when mapping a control data source. For example, this can be a CloudTrail event name, a rule name for Config, a Security Hub control, or the name of an Amazon Web Services API call.

If you’re mapping a data source to a rule in Config, the keywordValue that you specify depends on the type of rule:

  • For managed rules , you can use the rule identifier as the keywordValue . You can find the rule identifier from the list of Config managed rules .

  • For custom rules , you form the keywordValue by adding the Custom_ prefix to the rule name. This prefix distinguishes the rule from a managed rule.

    • Custom rule name: my-custom-config-rule keywordValue : Custom_my-custom-config-rule

  • For service-linked rules , you form the keywordValue by adding the Custom_ prefix to the rule name. In addition, you remove the suffix ID that appears at the end of the rule name.

    • Service-linked rule name: CustomRuleForAccount-conformance-pack-szsm1uv0w keywordValue : Custom_CustomRuleForAccount-conformance-pack

    • Service-linked rule name: OrgConfigRule-s3-bucket-versioning-enabled-dbgzf8ba keywordValue : Custom_OrgConfigRule-s3-bucket-versioning-enabled
