Object_store: s3 or object_store: aws?


The documentation is very inconsistent and confusing.

Here (loki/_index.md at main · grafana/loki · GitHub) it states:

# Which store to use for the chunks. Either aws, azure, gcp, bigtable, gcs,
# cassandra, swift, filesystem or a named_store (refer to named_stores_config).

So, I can use “aws”. Right. But in every example I find object_store: s3 is used instead:

There are plenty of example configurations spread out across the repository. But even if you go to the website, it uses “s3” as object_store in the examples, which isn’t an option according to the configuration documentation.

Can someone help me with this confusion?
