I wanted to invalidate a AWS Cloudfront distribution using ruby.
This is documented in the AWS documentation here.
However what was not clear to me was that the parameter
'caller_reference' must be unique for each invalidation.
At least this seems to be the case. When I call that method using the same caller reference string, no new invalidations are created. However if I send a unique string each time, a new invalidation is created.
There you go...
