  • BucketRegion: For AWS, mention the region of S3 bucket, corresponding to you default storage location (defloc). If it is left empty, it defaults to us-east-1. When you mention the bucket region, it defaults to path-style-URLs for S3 bucket names and disables VIRTUAL_HOST_STYLE URL (for more information, see Configuring the ODBC Driver) for the same. For example, if you enter;us-west-1 in the EndPoint:BucketRegion field, it sets VIRTUAL_HOST_STYLE to false and uses us-west-1 as the region of the S3 bucket of your default storage location (defloc). For Azure, you must keep the BucketRegion empty.
