Description

Creates a staging distribution using the configuration of the provided primary distribution. A staging distribution is a copy of an existing distribution (called the primary distribution) that you can use in a continuous deployment workflow. After you create a staging distribution, you can use UpdateDistribution to modify the staging distribution's configuration. Then you can use CreateContinuousDeploymentPolicy to incrementally move traffic to the staging distribution. This API operation requires the following IAM permissions:

Parameters

-CallerReference <String>
A value that uniquely identifies a request to create a resource. This helps to prevent CloudFront from creating a duplicate resource if you accidentally resubmit an identical request.
Required?True
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-ClientConfig <AmazonCloudFrontConfig>
Amazon.PowerShell.Cmdlets.CF.AmazonCloudFrontClientCmdlet.ClientConfig
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-Enabled <Boolean>
A Boolean flag to specify the state of the staging distribution when it's created. When you set this value to True, the staging distribution is enabled. When you set this value to False, the staging distribution is disabled.If you omit this field, the default value is True.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
This parameter overrides confirmation prompts to force the cmdlet to continue its operation. This parameter should always be used with caution.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-IfMatch <String>
The version identifier of the primary distribution whose configuration you are copying. This is the ETag value returned in the response to GetDistribution and GetDistributionConfig.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-PrimaryDistributionId <String>
The identifier of the primary distribution whose configuration you are copying. To get a distribution ID, use ListDistributions.
Required?True
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-Select <String>
Use the -Select parameter to control the cmdlet output. The default value is '*'. Specifying -Select '*' will result in the cmdlet returning the whole service response (Amazon.CloudFront.Model.CopyDistributionResponse). Specifying the name of a property of type Amazon.CloudFront.Model.CopyDistributionResponse will result in that property being returned. Specifying -Select '^ParameterName' will result in the cmdlet returning the selected cmdlet parameter value.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-Staging <Boolean>
The type of distribution that your primary distribution will be copied to. The only valid value is True, indicating that you are copying to a staging distribution.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)

Common Credential and Region Parameters

-AccessKey <String>
The AWS access key for the user account. This can be a temporary access key if the corresponding session token is supplied to the -SessionToken parameter.

Accept pipeline input?True (ByValue, ByPropertyName)
-EndpointUrl <String>
The endpoint to make the call against.Note: This parameter is primarily for internal AWS use and is not required/should not be specified for normal usage.

Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-NetworkCredential <PSCredential>
