(cloudfront): Migration from CloudFrontWebDistribution to WebDistribution

See original GitHub issue

General Issue

General Issue

The Question

I had the following code for CloudFrontWebDistribution

const webDistribution = new cloudfront.CloudFrontWebDistribution(this, 'MyCfnDistribution', {
    // ...

Converted it to support the Distribution Class

const webDistribution =new cloudfront.Distribution(this, 'MyCfnDistribution', {
    // ...
const distributionCfn = webDistribution.node.defaultChild as cloudfront.CfnDistribution;

When I deployed this new code I got the following error:

Invalid request provided: The parameter globPattern is too small or empty. (Service: CloudFront, Status 
Code: 400

How Do I Solve this? Are there Any Other ways to Migrate to Distribution Construct?

There doesn’t seem to be a direct way to not include the pathPattern, but you can override the CDK output for pathpattern on the additional behaviors with an escape hatch!


This will remove the PathPattern from your template for the first additional behavior you add. Simply change the number 0 to change which behavior you’re modifying in the template

Hey @DarshanAwachat, sorry I missed this

I’m not entirely sure what you’re asking here, but you shouldn’t run into any issues down the line just for overriding a logical ID. That should be stable 🙂
