Response Elements

If the action is successful, the service sends back an HTTP 201 response.

The following data is returned in XML format by the service.

Distribution

Root level tag for the Distribution parameters.

Required: Yes

ActiveTrustedSigners

CloudFront automatically adds this element to the response only if you've set up the distribution to serve private content with signed URLs. The element lists the key pair IDs that CloudFront is aware of for each trusted signer. The Signer child element lists the AWS account number of the trusted signer (or an empty Self element if the signer is you). The Signer element also includes the IDs of any active key pairs associated with the trusted signer's AWS account. If no KeyPairId element appears for a Signer, that signer can't create working signed URLs.

Type: ActiveTrustedSigners object

ARN

The ARN (Amazon Resource Name) for the distribution. For example: arn:aws:cloudfront::123456789012:distribution/EDFDVBD632BHDS5, where 123456789012 is your AWS account ID.

Type: String

DistributionConfig

The current configuration information for the distribution. Send a GET request to the /CloudFront API version/distribution ID/config resource.

Type: DistributionConfig object

DomainName

InProgressInvalidationBatches

The number of invalidation batches currently in progress.
