Deploy a managed ruleset

To deploy a managed ruleset from your root ruleset, use the Rulesets API.

Before you begin

  • Create a root ruleset if you do not already have one.
  • Fetch the id parameters for your root ruleset and the managed ruleset that you want to deploy.

Add a managed ruleset rule to the root ruleset

Use the Update Ruleset operation to add rules to your root ruleset. This rule executes the managed ruleset. Use a separate rule for each managed ruleset you want to deploy.

The following request adds a rule to a root ruleset. The rule executes a managed ruleset for requests where matches

curl -X PUT \     "{account-id}/rulesets/{root-ruleset-id}"--data {  "rules": [{      "action": "execute",      "expression": " eq \"\""      "action_parameters": {        "id": "{managed-ruleset-id}"      }    }]}

In this example, the ruleset executes the behavior configured by the managed rule issuer. To customize the behavior for deployed managed rulesets, see override a managed ruleset.
