How do I migrate my SSL certificate to the US East (N. Virginia) Region to use with my CloudFront distribution?

Lesedauer: 2 Minute

I have an SSL certificate in AWS Certificate Manager (ACM) that I want to associate with my Amazon CloudFront distribution. However, I can't associate the certificate with the distribution because it's not in the US East (N. Virginia) (us-east-1) AWS Region. I don't know how to move the certificate.


You can't migrate an existing certificate in ACM from one Region to another. Instead, import or create a certificate in the target Region.

To associate an ACM certificate with a CloudFront distribution, import or create the certificate in US East (N. Virginia). Also, the certificate must meet the CloudFront requirements.

To import or create an ACM certificate to use with a CloudFront distribution, follow these steps:

  1. Open the ACM console in the US East (N. Virginia) Region.
    Note: From the AWS Region selector in the navigation bar, confirm that N. Virginia is selected.
  2. Follow the steps to use the AWS Management Console to import a certificate, or use the ACM console to request a certificate.
  3. Associate the certificate and alternate domain names (CNAMEs) with your CloudFront distribution.
