DeleteStreamingDistribution

Delete a streaming distribution. To delete an RTMP distribution using the CloudFront API, perform the following steps.

To delete an RTMP distribution using the CloudFront API:

  1. Disable the RTMP distribution.

  2. Submit a GET Streaming Distribution Config request to get the current configuration and the Etag header for the distribution.

  3. Update the XML document that was returned in the response to your GET Streaming Distribution Config request to change the value of Enabled to false.

  4. Submit a PUT Streaming Distribution Config request to update the configuration for your distribution. In the request body, include the XML document that you updated in Step 3. Then set the value of the HTTP If-Match header to the value of the ETag header that CloudFront returned when you submitted the GET Streaming Distribution Config request in Step 2.

  5. Review the response to the PUT Streaming Distribution Config request to confirm that the distribution was successfully disabled.

  6. Submit a GET Streaming Distribution Config request to confirm that your changes have propagated. When propagation is complete, the value of Status is Deployed.

  7. Submit a DELETE Streaming Distribution request. Set the value of the HTTP If-Match header to the value of the ETag header that CloudFront returned when you submitted the GET Streaming Distribution Config request in Step 2.

  8. Review the response to your DELETE Streaming Distribution request to confirm that the distribution was successfully deleted.
