When I create an Amazon Route 53 alias resource record set, the Alias Target list shows "No Targets Available". What does this message mean, and how do I fix it?

Resources will only appear in the Alias Target list if both of the following are true:

  • The resource type must be supported by Route 53 as an alias target.
  • The resource must be on the same AWS account as your Route 53 hosted zone.

You can route to resources on a different AWS account by manually entering a value that identifies the resource. For example, to route to a CloudFront distribution, type the CloudFront domain name for Alias Target. For a list of currently supported resources and how to manually add them as targets, see Alias Target.
