aws cloudfront create-distribution

Creates a new web distribution. You create a CloudFront distribution to tell CloudFront where you want content to be delivered from, and the details about how to track and manage content delivery. Send a POST request to the /CloudFront API version/distribution/distribution ID resource. When you update a distribution, there are more required fields than when you create a distribution. When you update your distribution by using UpdateDistribution, follow the steps included in the documentation to get the current configuration and then make your updates. This helps to make sure that you include all of the required fields. To view a summary, see Required Fields for Create Distribution and Update Distribution in the Amazon CloudFront Developer Guide


--distribution-config <structure>The distribution's configuration information
--origin-domain-name <string>The domain name for your origin. This argument and --distribution-config are mututally exclusive
--default-root-object <string>The object that you want CloudFront to return (for example, index.html) when a viewer request points to your root URL. This argument and --distribution-config are mututally exclusive
--cli-input-json <string>Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by ``--generate-cli-skeleton``. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI 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
--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``. If provided with the value ``output``, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command
