Backblaze B2

Backblaze B2 implements an S3 Compatible API. To use it as a django-storages backend:

  1. Sign up for a Backblaze B2 account, if you have not already done so.
  2. Create a public or private bucket. Note that object-level ACLs are not supported by B2 - all objects inherit their bucket’s ACLs.
  3. Create an application key. Best practice is to limit access to the bucket you just created.
  4. Follow the instructions in the Amazon S3 docs with the following exceptions:
    • Set AWS_S3_REGION_NAME to your Backblaze B2 region, for example, us-west-004
    • Set AWS_S3_ENDPOINT_URL to https://s3.${AWS_S3_REGION_NAME}
    • Set the values of AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID and AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY to the application key id and application key you created in step 2.
