[ aws . cloudfront ]



Gets the list of CloudFront origin access controls in this Amazon Web Services account.

You can optionally specify the maximum number of items to receive in the response. If the total number of items in the list exceeds the maximum that you specify, or the default maximum, the response is paginated. To get the next page of items, send another request that specifies the NextMarker value from the current response as the Marker value in the next request.

--marker (string)

Use this field when paginating results to indicate where to begin in your list of origin access controls. The response includes the items in the list that occur after the marker. To get the next page of the list, set this field's value to the value of NextMarker from the current page's response.

--max-items (string)

The maximum number of origin access controls that you want in the response.

--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.

OriginAccessControlList -> (structure)

A list of origin access controls.

Marker -> (string)

The value of the Marker field that was provided in the request.

NextMarker -> (string)

If there are more items in the list than are in this response, this element is present. It contains the value to use in the Marker field of another request to continue listing origin access controls.

MaxItems -> (integer)

The maximum number of origin access controls requested.

IsTruncated -> (boolean)

If there are more items in the list than are in this response, this value is true .

Quantity -> (integer)

The number of origin access controls returned in the response.

Items -> (list)

The unique identifier of the origin access control.

Description -> (string)

A description of the origin access control.

Name -> (string)

SigningProtocol -> (string)

The signing protocol of the origin access control. The signing protocol determines how CloudFront signs (authenticates) requests. The only valid value is sigv4 .

SigningBehavior -> (string)

A value that specifies which requests CloudFront signs (adds authentication information to). This field can have one of the following values:

  • never – CloudFront doesn't sign any origin requests.
  • always – CloudFront signs all origin requests, overwriting the Authorization header from the viewer request if necessary.
  • no-override – If the viewer request doesn't contain the Authorization header, CloudFront signs the origin request. If the viewer request contains the Authorization header, CloudFront doesn't sign the origin request, but instead passes along the Authorization header that it received in the viewer request.

OriginAccessControlOriginType -> (string)
