Bucket Naming Guidelines

Bucket Naming Rules

Your bucket name must meet the following requirements:

  • Only lower cased letters, numbers, dashes (-), and dots (.) are allowed in bucket names.
  • Bucket names must contain 3 or more characters and cannot be longer than 63 characters.
  • Bucket names cannot be ip addresses (ie. 10.0.0.1).
  • Bucket names cannot contain the following character sequences:
    • dot-dot (..)
    • dot-dash (.-)
    • dash-dot (-.)
  • Bucket names must start and end with a letter or number character.

Additional Considerations

  • Each bucket name must be globally unique. If you attempt to create a bucket with a name that already belongs to an existing bucket of any user of Polycloud, then you will receive an error.
  • Existing buckets cannot be renamed.

Example Bucket Names

The following are examples of valid bucket names:

  • my-polycloud-bucket
  • abc-a.asdf
  • www.mydomain.com

The following are examples of invalid bucket names:

  • MY-Polycloud-Bucket (contains uppercase letters)
  • abc_a.asdf (contains underscore)
  • ubuntu@www.mydomain.com (contains invalid character – @)
  • -1bucket (starts with a dash)
  • mybucket. (ends with a dot)
  • mybucket.-adf (contains an invalid character sequence)
