Amazon CloudFront
Developer Guide (API Version 2016-09-29)

Working with Distributions

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. The following topics explain some basics about CloudFront distributions and provide detailed information about the settings you can choose to configure your distributions to meet your business needs.


If you are using Adobe Flash Media Server's RTMP protocol, you set up a different kind of CloudFront distribution. For more information, see Working with RTMP Distributions.
