Description of Issue/Question

Updating a CloudFront distribution via the boto_cloudfront state fails due to a typo in the corresponding state file.

The variable should be declared as distribution_result instead of distribution_ret.


(Please provide relevant configs and/or SLS files (Be sure to remove sensitive info).)
    - name: testgeorgi.blabla.com_distribution
    - tags:
        salt_managed: "True"
    - config:
           <about 500 lines of config :) >

Steps to Reproduce Issue

(Include debug logs if possible and relevant.)

  • Create a distribution via the boto_cloudfront.present
  • Run the same state again, without chaning anything, so that the update_distribution() method is called
root@master-10-155:/var/cache/salt/minion/files/qa# salt '*master*' state.sls_id wordpress.cloudfront
    Function: boto_cloudfront.present
        Name: testgeorgi.blabla.com_distribution
      Result: False
     Comment: An exception occurred in this state: Traceback (most recent call last):
                File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/salt/", line 1905, in call
