I'm creating a mediapackage channel using the management console and i want to create the cloudfront distribution for it aswell using the checkbox of "Create a cloudfront distribution for this channel" under the "CloudFront distribution details" section but it is greyed out. previously it was enabled and i was able to create a cloudfront distribution but now i cant

also i was exploring the sdk for mediapackage v1 and in the CreateChannelCommand input, there is no option for cloudfront distribution in the input object

Hello,

Elemental MediaPackage is removing the ability to create CloudFront distributions from the Elemental MediaPackage console when creating a channel.

Therefore, Please use the CloudFront service (https://console.aws.amazon.com/cloudfront ) to create a CloudFront distribution. However, please note, existing CloudFront distributions created through Elemental MediaPackage will not be affected.

You can refer the below link for more information:

Creating a distribution: https://docs.aws.amazon.com/AmazonCloudFront/latest/DeveloperGuide/distribution-web-creating-console.html

Further regarding your query on having the option for cloudfront distribution in the input object in the CreateChannelCommand, Unfortunately, at the moment, this feature is not available. As AWS is constantly trying to improve their offerings by gathering customer feedback , I would like you to know there is already a feature request for your use-case.

While I am unable to comment on if/when this feature may get released, I request you to keep an eye on our What's New and Blog pages for any new feature announcements.

Thank you for your inquiry. Please use the CloudFront console, CLI, or API/SDKs to create your distribution. You may refer to documentation here and here.

  • Ok, but why is the option greyed out all of a sudden from the management console of mediapackage channel creation? is it a permanent change? it was easier to configure a cloudfront cdn that way if i were using the console.

    for sdk its fine to use the cloudfront sdk itself, but it was very convenient when using management console
