UpdateContinuousDeploymentPolicy - Amazon CloudFront
Services or capabilities described in Amazon Web Services documentation might vary by Region. To see the differences applicable to the China Regions, see Getting Started with Amazon Web Services in China (PDF).


Updates a continuous deployment policy. You can update a continuous deployment policy to enable or disable it, to change the percentage of traffic that it sends to the staging distribution, or to change the staging distribution that it sends traffic to.

When you update a continuous deployment policy configuration, all the fields are updated with the values that are provided in the request. You cannot update some fields independent of others. To update a continuous deployment policy configuration:

  1. Use GetContinuousDeploymentPolicyConfig to get the current configuration.

  2. Locally modify the fields in the continuous deployment policy configuration that you want to update.

  3. Use UpdateContinuousDeploymentPolicy, providing the entire continuous deployment policy configuration, including the fields that you modified and those that you didn't.
