AWS::Lightsail::Distribution - AWS CloudFormation

AWS::Lightsail::Distribution

The AWS::Lightsail::Distribution resource specifies a content delivery network (CDN) distribution. You can create distributions only in the us-east-1 AWS Region.

A distribution is a globally distributed network of caching servers that improve the performance of your website or web application hosted on a Lightsail instance, static content hosted on a Lightsail bucket, or through a Lightsail load balancer.

Remarks

Configuring cache behavior settings

The CacheBehaviorSettings parameter can be set only if the DefaultCacheBehavior parameter is set to cache, or if the CacheBehaviors parameter has a path with a cache behavior. If neither of those conditions are true, the CacheBehaviorSettings will not be set for the distribution and the stack will drift.
