API Reference (API Version 2016-11-25)

CachedMethods

A complex type that controls whether CloudFront caches the response to requests using the specified HTTP methods. There are two choices:

  • CloudFront caches responses to GET and HEAD requests.

  • CloudFront caches responses to GET, HEAD, and OPTIONS requests.

If you pick the second choice for your Amazon S3 Origin, you may need to forward Access-Control-Request-Method, Access-Control-Request-Headers, and Origin headers for the responses to be cached correctly.
