Self-signed certificate does not work with Cloudfront


Hi, I created a self-signed certificate and then import to AWS ACM. The self-signed certificate work with load balancer. Then I created new one for my front-end app (different subdomain for new FE). When use the certificate for Cloudfront, it says (the alternate domain name and configuration in the certificate is the same): "The certificate that is attached to your distribution doesn't cover the alternate domain name (CNAME) that you're trying to add. For more details, see: "

Does the Cloudfront not support self-signed certificate? Please give me your advice. Thanks in advance.

I don't think self-certificates can be used with CloudFront.

Note: Self-signed certificates aren't supported.
