Invalid CNAME target. You aren't allowed to use records with partial suffixes (Code: 9059)

Hello,
I’m trying to create cname record for my domain.
base url:
api.example.com CNAME api.example.com.cdn.Cloudflare.net
And getting this error message.

DNS Validation Error (Code: 1004): Invalid CNAME target. You aren’t allowed to use records with partial suffixes (Code: 9059)

Please advice what’s is wrong here?

Thank you.

The CNAME need to point to a valid host entry.

As @sandro mention you need to point to a valid entry, not .cdn.Cloudflare.net

Thank you for the help.
Appreciate it.
