AWS WAF

Leave Feedback

Introduction

AWS WAF is a web application firewall that lets you monitor web requests that are forwarded to Amazon CloudFront distributions or an Application Load Balancer.

In addition, AWS WAF is used to block or allow requests based on conditions such as the IP addresses that requests originate from or values in the requests.

Setup

To set up the OpsRamp AWS integration and discover the AWS service, go to AWS Integration Discovery Profile and select WAF.
