region Property

The region the class will make requests against.


def get_region() -> str: ...
def set_region(value: str) -> None: ...

region = property(get_region, set_region)

Default Value



This property controls which region the class will make requests against; it should be changed to create or access resources in other regions.

Each service provider has a different default region, and the class will automatically set this property to the selected service provider's default region anytime service_provider changes. The custom service provider's "default region" is empty string (i.e., setting service_provider to spCustom (255) will clear this property).

Note: When the custom service provider is selected, the class uses the base URL specified by the URL configuration setting to generate request URLs. If the base URL contains a %region% token, the class will replace it with this property's value anytime it generates a request URL. Refer to the URL setting's documentation for more information.

Backblaze B2 Regions

All BackblazeB2 region strings take the form us-west-###, where ### is a 3-digit number. By default, the class uses us-west-000.

To determine the exact region string, log into the Backblaze B2 web console and refer to the "S3 Endpoint" value which corresponds to the application keypair that will be used for authentication; this endpoint value will include the region string.

Note: The master application key for a Backblaze B2 account cannot be used with Backblaze's S3-compatible API; create a non-master application key if necessary.

Linode Object Storage Regions

Value Region
us-east-1 (default) US East (Newark)
eu-central-1 EU Central (Frankfurt)

Important: Each "region" supported by Linode's Object Storage service is actually a completely standalone storage cluster. These clusters do not interact with each other in any way, which causes the following non-standard behaviors:

  • Bucket names may be reused in each region (however, they must still be "globally" unique within each region).
  • The list_buckets method will only return buckets located in the currently-selected region; there is no way to retrieve a list of all regions' buckets.
  • Similarly, the bucket_exists and get_bucket_location methods only consider buckets located in the currently-selected region.
  • The copy_object method cannot be used to copy objects to a bucket in another region.
