A complex type that controls the countries in which your content is distributed.

For information about the accuracy of these databases, see How accurate are your GeoIP databases? on the MaxMind website.

public class GeoRestriction : Object

The GeoRestriction type exposes the following members


Public Method GeoRestriction() Empty constructor used to set properties independently even when a simple constructor is available
Public Method GeoRestriction(GeoRestrictionType) Instantiates GeoRestriction with the parameterized properties


Public Property Items System.Collections.Generic.List<System.String> Gets and sets the property Items. A complex type that contains a Location element for each country in which you want CloudFront either to distribute your content (whitelist) or not distribute your content (blacklist). The Location element is a two-letter, uppercase country code for a country that you want to include in your blacklist or whitelist. Include one Location element for each country. CloudFront and MaxMind both use ISO 3166 country codes. For the current list of countries and the corresponding codes, see ISO 3166-1-alpha-2 code on the International Organization for Standardization website. You can also refer to the country list in the CloudFront console, which includes both country names and codes.
Public Property Quantity System.Int32 Gets and sets the property Quantity. When geo restriction is enabled, this is the number of countries in your whitelist or blacklist. Otherwise, when it is not enabled, Quantity is 0, and you can omit Items.
Public Property RestrictionType Amazon.CloudFront.GeoRestrictionType Gets and sets the property RestrictionType. The method that you want to use to restrict distribution of your content by country: - none: No geo restriction is enabled, meaning access to content is not restricted by client geo location. - blacklist: The Location elements specify the countries in which you do not want CloudFront to distribute your content. - whitelist: The Location elements specify the countries in which you want CloudFront to distribute your content.
