Storage locations for assets are kept in the Storage service. These locations may be
ftp etc. The
storage scheme provides an abstraction of the protocol and authority part of the storage location so that resolution can be deferred.
URI Scheme Syntax
storage-uri = "storage://" storage-ref path [ "?" query ] [ "#" fragment ] storage-ref = tenant "." storage-name tenant = name storage-name = name name = 1*( ALPHA / DIGIT / "_" / "-" )
fragment are as defined in URI.
URI Scheme Semantics
Provides an abstraction of storage locations to be resolved by the Storage service. The protocol is resolved to
ftp etc. The authority is resolved to
host[:port]. Path, query and fragment remains unchanged.
storage URIs are subject to encoding rules as defined in URI.
The Storage service needs to ensure that storage locations that contain sensitive infromation are resolved to a secure protocol. It cannot be guaranteed nor enforced by the scheme.
