Name Description Type Default Required
aliases Extra CNAMEs (alternate domain names), if any, for this distribution. list(string) null no
comment Any comments you want to include about the distribution. string null no
create_distribution Controls if CloudFront distribution should be created bool true no
create_monitoring_subscription If enabled, the resource for monitoring subscription will created. bool false no
create_origin_access_identity Controls if CloudFront origin access identity should be created bool false no
custom_error_response One or more custom error response elements any {} no
default_cache_behavior The default cache behavior for this distribution any null no
default_root_object The object that you want CloudFront to return (for example, index.html) when an end user requests the root URL. string null no
enabled Whether the distribution is enabled to accept end user requests for content. bool true no
geo_restriction The restriction configuration for this distribution (geo_restrictions) any {} no
http_version The maximum HTTP version to support on the distribution. Allowed values are http1.1 and http2. The default is http2. string "http2" no
is_ipv6_enabled Whether the IPv6 is enabled for the distribution. bool null no
logging_config The logging configuration that controls how logs are written to your distribution (maximum one). any {} no
ordered_cache_behavior An ordered list of cache behaviors resource for this distribution. List from top to bottom in order of precedence. The topmost cache behavior will have precedence 0. any [] no

wait_for_deployment If enabled, the resource will wait for the distribution status to change from InProgress to Deployed. Setting this tofalse will skip the process. bool true no
web_acl_id If you're using AWS WAF to filter CloudFront requests, the Id of the AWS WAF web ACL that is associated with the distribution. The WAF Web ACL must exist in the WAF Global (CloudFront) region and the credentials configuring this argument must have waf:GetWebACL permissions assigned. If using WAFv2, provide the ARN of the web ACL. string null no
