Can I migrate a CloudFront distribution to another AWS account?

I want to migrate my Amazon CloudFront distribution to another AWS account.


CloudFront doesn't support the migration of a distribution from one AWS account to another AWS account.

For information on CNAME migration, see How do I resolve the CNAMEAlreadyExists error when I set up a CNAME alias for my CloudFront distribution?
Note: The default CloudFront domain name on your distribution can't be migrated between AWS accounts. The domain name format is similar to:
