AWS CDK Cross Account Route53

AWS CDK Constructs that define:

  • IAM role that can be used to allow discrete Route53 Record changes
  • Cross Account Record construct to create Route53 cross account Route53 records

These constructs allow you to create Route53 records where the zone exists in a separate AWS account to the Cloudformation Stack.

Getting started

yarn add @fallobst22/cdk-cross-account-route53

First create the role in the stack for the AWS account which contains the hosted zone.

// DNS Stack
const zone = new route53.PublicHostedZone(this, 'HostedZone', {
  zoneName: 'example.com',

new CrossAccountRoute53Role(this, 'WebRoute53Role', {
  roleName: 'WebRoute53Role',
  assumedBy: new iam.AccountPrincipal('22222222'), // Web Stack Account
  records: [{ domains: ['www.example.com'] }],

Then in the child stack create the records

const hostedZoneId = 'Z12345'; // ID of the zone in the other account

const distribution = new cloudfront.Distribution(this, 'Distribution', {
  domainNames: ['example.com'],

new CrossAccountRoute53RecordSet(this, 'ARecord', {
  delegationRoleName: 'WebRoute53Role',
  delegationRoleAccount: '111111111', // The account that contains the zone and role
  resourceRecordSets: [{
    Name: `example.com`,
    Type: 'A',
    AliasTarget: {
      DNSName: distribution.distributionDomainName,
      HostedZoneId: 'Z2FDTNDATAQYW2', // Cloudfront Hosted Zone Id
      EvaluateTargetHealth: false,

Development Status

These constructs will stay in v0.x.x for a while, to allow easier bug fixing & breaking changes if absolutely needed. Once bugs are fixed (if any), the constructs will be published with v1 major version and will be marked as stable.

Only typescript has been tested.
