create-cloud-front-origin-access-identity

Description

Creates a new origin access identity. If you're using Amazon S3 for your origin, you can use an origin access identity to require users to access your content using a CloudFront URL instead of the Amazon S3 URL. For more information about how to use origin access identities, see Serving Private Content through CloudFront in the Amazon CloudFront Developer Guide .

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  create-cloud-front-origin-access-identity
--cloud-front-origin-access-identity-config <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--cloud-front-origin-access-identity-config (structure)

The current configuration information for the identity.

Shorthand Syntax:

CallerReference=string,Comment=string

JSON Syntax:

{
  "CallerReference": "string",
  "Comment": "string"
}

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Output

CloudFrontOriginAccessIdentity -> (structure)

The origin access identity's information.

Id -> (string)

The ID for the origin access identity, for example, E74FTE3AJFJ256A .

S3CanonicalUserId -> (string)

The Amazon S3 canonical user ID for the origin access identity, used when giving the origin access identity read permission to an object in Amazon S3.

CloudFrontOriginAccessIdentityConfig -> (structure)

The current configuration information for the identity.

CallerReference -> (string)

A unique number that ensures the request can't be replayed.

If the CallerReference is new (no matter the content of the CloudFrontOriginAccessIdentityConfig object), a new origin access identity is created.

If the CallerReference is a value already sent in a previous identity request, and the content of the CloudFrontOriginAccessIdentityConfig is identical to the original request (ignoring white space), the response includes the same information returned to the original request.

If the CallerReference is a value you already sent in a previous request to create an identity, but the content of the CloudFrontOriginAccessIdentityConfig is different from the original request, CloudFront returns a CloudFrontOriginAccessIdentityAlreadyExists error.

Comment -> (string)

Any comments you want to include about the origin access identity.

Location -> (string)

The fully qualified URI of the new origin access identity just created. For example: https://cloudfront.amazonaws.com/2010-11-01/origin-access-identity/cloudfront/E74FTE3AJFJ256A .

ETag -> (string)

The current version of the origin access identity created.
