ACM certificate not showing up in CloudFront


Before you continue, ensure that you've created your certificate in the region us-east-1 (N. Virginia). Otherwise the certificate is not available for CloudFront.

The issue

At some point in time you may be confronted with the following issue:

  • you've requested an SSL certificate via ACM
  • the validation was successful
  • you try to add the freshly issued ACM certificate to a CloudFront configuration via AWS console
  • the certificate is not selectable from the dropdown in the distribution configuration

Fixing the issue

I don't know why this error occurs, but after wasting over 1 hour of time trying to get the certificate to show up in the CloudFront console I've fixed it by pasting the certificates ARN in the field. This worked just fine. You can find the ARN of the certificate in the ACM console.

Alternative: Use the CLI
