Synopsis

  create-streaming-distribution
--streaming-distribution-config <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--streaming-distribution-config (structure)

The streaming distribution's configuration information.

CallerReference -> (string)

A unique value (for example, a date-time stamp) that ensures that the request can't be replayed.

If the value of CallerReference is new (regardless of the content of the StreamingDistributionConfig object), CloudFront creates a new distribution.

If CallerReference is a value that you already sent in a previous request to create a distribution, CloudFront returns a DistributionAlreadyExists error.

S3Origin -> (structure)

A complex type that contains information about the Amazon S3 bucket from which you want CloudFront to get your media files for distribution.

DomainName -> (string)

The DNS name of the Amazon S3 origin.

OriginAccessIdentity -> (string)

The CloudFront origin access identity to associate with the distribution. Use an origin access identity to configure the distribution so that end users can only access objects in an Amazon S3 bucket through CloudFront.

If you want end users to be able to access objects using either the CloudFront URL or the Amazon S3 URL, specify an empty OriginAccessIdentity element.

To delete the origin access identity from an existing distribution, update the distribution configuration and include an empty OriginAccessIdentity element.

To replace the origin access identity, update the distribution configuration and specify the new origin access identity.

For more information, see Using an Origin Access Identity to Restrict Access to Your Amazon S3 Content in the Amazon CloudFront Developer Guide .

Aliases -> (structure)

A complex type that contains information about CNAMEs (alternate domain names), if any, for this streaming distribution.

Quantity -> (integer)

The number of CNAME aliases, if any, that you want to associate with this distribution.

Items -> (list)

A complex type that contains the CNAME aliases, if any, that you want to associate with this distribution.

(string)

Comment -> (string)

Any comments you want to include about the streaming distribution.

Logging -> (structure)

A complex type that controls whether access logs are written for the streaming distribution.

Enabled -> (boolean)

Specifies whether you want CloudFront to save access logs to an Amazon S3 bucket. If you don't want to enable logging when you create a streaming distribution or if you want to disable logging for an existing streaming distribution, specify false for Enabled , and specify empty Bucket and Prefix elements. If you specify false for Enabled but you specify values for Bucket and Prefix , the values are automatically deleted.

Bucket -> (string)

The Amazon S3 bucket to store the access logs in, for example, myawslogbucket.s3.amazonaws.com .

Prefix -> (string)

An optional string that you want CloudFront to prefix to the access log filenames for this streaming distribution, for example, myprefix/ . If you want to enable logging, but you don't want to specify a prefix, you still must include an empty Prefix element in the Logging element.

TrustedSigners -> (structure)

A complex type that specifies any accounts that you want to permit to create signed URLs for private content. If you want the distribution to use signed URLs, include this element; if you want the distribution to use public URLs, remove this element. For more information, see Serving Private Content through CloudFront in the Amazon CloudFront Developer Guide .

Enabled -> (boolean)

This field is true if any of the accounts have public keys that CloudFront can use to verify the signatures of signed URLs and signed cookies. If not, this field is false .

Quantity -> (integer)

The number of accounts in the list.

Items -> (list)

A list of account identifiers.

(string)

PriceClass -> (string)

A complex type that contains information about price class for this streaming distribution.

Enabled -> (boolean)

Whether the streaming distribution is enabled to accept user requests for content.

--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

StreamingDistribution -> (structure)

The streaming distribution's information.

Id -> (string)

The identifier for the RTMP distribution. For example: EGTXBD79EXAMPLE .

ARN -> (string)

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

Status -> (string)

The current status of the RTMP distribution. When the status is Deployed , the distribution's information is propagated to all CloudFront edge locations.

LastModifiedTime -> (timestamp)

The date and time that the distribution was last modified.

DomainName -> (string)

The domain name that corresponds to the streaming distribution, for example, s5c39gqb8ow64r.cloudfront.net .

ActiveTrustedSigners -> (structure)

A complex type that lists the accounts, if any, that you included in the TrustedSigners complex type for this distribution. These are the accounts that you want to allow to create signed URLs for private content.

The Signer complex type lists the account number of the trusted signer or self if the signer is the account that created the distribution. The Signer element also includes the IDs of any active CloudFront key pairs that are associated with the trusted signer's account. If no KeyPairId element appears for a Signer , that signer can't create signed URLs.

For more information, see Serving Private Content through CloudFront in the Amazon CloudFront Developer Guide .

AwsAccountNumber -> (string)
