    1. Display Name is a unique name only used by Igneous that you can create to differentiate between credentials.
    2. Endpoint is the Oracle AWS S3 compatible URL for your desired region. Oracle uses an unique namespace identifier to route your account. The procedure to obtain the complete endpoint is as follows -
      1. Obtain your namespace by following this instruction Understanding Namespaces
      2. The region list is available here.
    3. Access Key ID is the Oracle access key for the Igneous user
    4. Secret Access Key is the Oracle secret key for the Igneous user
    5. Region is optional but is best to match your region of choice such as "us-phoenix-1".
