Request Syntax

response = client.create_location_object_storage(
            'Key': 'string',
            'Value': 'string'
  • ServerHostname (string) --


    Specifies the domain name or IP address of the object storage server. A DataSync agent uses this hostname to mount the object storage server in a network.

  • ServerPort (integer) -- Specifies the port that your object storage server accepts inbound network traffic on (for example, port 443).
  • ServerProtocol (string) -- Specifies the protocol that your object storage server uses to communicate.
  • Subdirectory (string) -- Specifies the object prefix for your object storage server. If this is a source location, DataSync only copies objects with this prefix. If this is a destination location, DataSync writes all objects with this prefix.
  • BucketName (string) --


    Specifies the name of the object storage bucket involved in the transfer.

  • AccessKey (string) -- Specifies the access key (for example, a user name) if credentials are required to authenticate with the object storage server.
  • SecretKey (string) -- Specifies the secret key (for example, a password) if credentials are required to authenticate with the object storage server.
  • AgentArns (list) --


    Specifies the Amazon Resource Names (ARNs) of the DataSync agents that can securely connect with your location.

    • (string) --
  • Tags (list) --

    Specifies the key-value pair that represents a tag that you want to add to the resource. Tags can help you manage, filter, and search for your resources. We recommend creating a name tag for your location.

    • (dict) --

      A key-value pair representing a single tag that's been applied to an Amazon Web Services resource.

      • Key (string) -- [REQUIRED]

        The key for an Amazon Web Services resource tag.

      • Value (string) --

        The value for an Amazon Web Services resource tag.

  • ServerCertificate (bytes) --

    Specifies a certificate to authenticate with an object storage system that uses a private or self-signed certificate authority (CA). You must specify a Base64-encoded .pem file (for example, file:///home/user/.ssh/storage_sys_certificate.pem ). The certificate can be up to 32768 bytes (before Base64 encoding).

    To use this parameter, configure ServerProtocol to HTTPS .
