Removing Content so CloudFront Won’t Distribute It

You can remove files from your origin that you no longer want to be included in your CloudFront distribution. However, CloudFront will continue to show viewers content from the edge cache until the files expire.

If you want to remove a file right away, you must do one of the following:

Invalidate the file

see Invalidating Files

Use file versioning

When you use versioning, different versions of a file have different names that you can use in your CloudFront distribution, to change which file is returned to viewers.
