There are a few rules for creating an appropriate name for an OSU bucket. It can contain alphanumerical characters, hyphens ("-"), underscores ("_"), or dots (".") and must:
- Contain between 3 and 255 chartacters
- Start with an alphanumerical character
- Be in lowercase lettering
- Not be an IPv4 address
The bucket name also must follow the HTTP rules and be unique across the whole platform-- if you create a bucket with a name that is already used by yourself or another user, an error occurs.
In addition, we strongly advise against using dots or periods (".") in bucket names as they can cause an SSL error.
