Can I migrate a CloudFront distribution to another AWS account?

How can I migrate my Amazon CloudFront distribution to another AWS account? 

Resolution

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

CloudFront does support the migration of a custom CNAME from one distribution to another distribution. You can migrate the CNAME to a distribution in the same AWS account, or to a distribution in another AWS account. For instructions on how to migrate a CNAME to another CloudFront distribution, see How do I resolve the error CNAMEAlreadyExists when setting up a CNAME alias for my Amazon CloudFront distribution?

Note: The default CloudFront domain name, similar to "d1234abcd.cloudfront.net" on your distribution, can't be migrated between AWS accounts.
