  • FrameworkName (string) –

  • FrameworkDescription (string) – An optional description of the framework with a maximum 1,024 characters.

  • FrameworkControls (list) –

    A list of the controls that make up the framework. Each control in the list has a name, input parameters, and scope.

    • (dict) –

      Contains detailed information about all of the controls of a framework. Each framework must contain at least one control.

      • ControlName (string) – [REQUIRED]

        The name of a control. This name is between 1 and 256 characters.

      • ControlInputParameters (list) –

        A list of ParameterName and ParameterValue pairs.

        • (dict) –

          A list of parameters for a control. A control can have zero, one, or more than one parameter. An example of a control with two parameters is: “backup plan frequency is at least daily and the retention period is at least 1 year”. The first parameter is daily. The second parameter is 1 year.

          • ParameterName (string) –

            The name of a parameter, for example, BackupPlanFrequency.

            The value of parameter, for example, hourly.

      • ControlScope (dict) –

        The scope of a control. The control scope defines what the control will evaluate. Three examples of control scopes are: a specific backup plan, all backup plans with a specific tag, or all backup plans.

        For more information, see ControlScope.

        • ComplianceResourceIds (list) –

          The ID of the only Amazon Web Services resource that you want your control scope to contain.

            • (string) –

  • IdempotencyToken (string) –

    A customer-chosen string that you can use to distinguish between otherwise identical calls to UpdateFrameworkInput. Retrying a successful request with the same idempotency token results in a success message with no action taken.
