Setting up Cloudflare R2 Connections

To connect to Cloudflare R2, make sure you have the following:

Note: Differently from other S3-compatible storage provides, Cloudflare R2 does not require the setup of regions and endpoints. However, certain features like S3 File Properties and S3 Lifecycle Policies are not available due to R2 limitations. Additionally, support for S3 Canned ACL and S3 Storage Class features is limited.
