Known Issues

Encoding of URL in access logs The URL field of access log entries contains the URL of the request in URL-encoded form. However, this field has been erroneously URL-encoded an extra time (it's double URL-encoded).
Range GET objects not cached If an end user sends a byte-range GET request for an object that isn't cached in the edge location, Amazon CloudFront fetches only the specified range from the origin and then serves the request. It doesn't cache either the range or the object.
