CreateBucket operation: IllegalLocationConstraintException

0 votes
I am trying to create a S3 bucket and am getting the following error:

aws s3api create-bucket --bucket niteshdemo --region ap-south-1

An error occurred (IllegalLocationConstraintException) when calling the CreateBucket operation: The unspecified location constraint is incompatible for the region specific endpoint this request was sent to.

This error is generated because your location would be something else than Mumbai region.

You must validate your location from AWS Console and then change the region and execute the command it will work.

Hope this helps.

The following command creates a bucket named my-bucket in the ap-south-1 region. Regions outside of us-east-1 require the appropriate LocationConstraint to be specified in order to create the bucket in the desired region:

aws s3api create-bucket --bucket my-bucket --region ap-south-1 --create-bucket-configuration LocationConstraint=ap-south-1
