Drupal 8 and AWS CloudFront

Submitted by isntall on Fri, 07/06/2018 - 08:14

I've been struggling with a couple things since I decided to front my blog with AWS Cloudfront:

  • Keeping the correct domain
  • Search was borked

These have been fixed.

The domain issue was due to not passing the correct headers to the backend servers and those in certain cases would pass the backend URL.
The search needed a new Cloudfront behavior that accepted query strings.

(I haven't actually deployed anything to this device)
I went the training for this device, it was wildly popular. I was fairly impressed how easy the device was in the lab. It was able to recognize humans and a hotdog; all part of the labs. Great.
