CachedMethods - Amazon CloudFront
AWS services or capabilities described in AWS documentation might vary by Region. To see the differences applicable to the China Regions, see Getting Started with AWS services in China.

CachedMethods

A complex type that controls whether CloudFront caches the response to requests using the specified HTTP methods. There are two choices:

  • CloudFront caches responses to GET and HEAD requests.

  • CloudFront caches responses to GET, HEAD, and OPTIONS requests.

If you pick the second choice for your Amazon S3 Origin, you may need to forward Access-Control-Request-Method, Access-Control-Request-Headers, and Origin headers for the responses to be cached correctly.
