|/Root/Application||s3UploadFilePrefix||String||The name of the folder to which files are uploaded. There isn't a default value.|
|/Root/Application||s3UploadResumeUploads||Boolean||Specifies that uploads should resume if interrupted. The default value is true. Set to false to prevent interrupted uploads from resuming.|
|/Root/Application||s3UploadDelay||Integer||Delays the uploading of files by the value in case a stream is republished. The default value, 0 milliseconds, results in no delay. Increase the value to delay the upload.|
|/Root/Application||s3UploadRestartFailedUploads||Boolean||Restarts failed uploads after a timeout without restarting the application. The default value is true.|
|/Root/Application||s3UploadRestartFailedUploadTimeout||Integer||Specifies the time, in milliseconds, to wait to restart a failed upload. The default value is 60000 milliseconds.|
|/Root/Application||s3UploadDeleteOriginalFiles||Boolean||Specifies whether to delete the original files after uploading. The default value is false. Set to true to delete files after uploading.(default: false)|
|/Root/Application||s3UploadVersionFile||Boolean||Enables automatic incremented versioning of uploaded files. The default value is false. Set to true to enable versioning.|

Note the following details about using the ModuleS3Upload module:
- If you don't provide credentials, the default AWS methods are used to authenticate with S3. For more information, see Using the default credential provider chain.
- When a recording is finished, a temporary file named [recording-name].upload is created to track the recording and sort any data that may be needed to resume the file upload later if it's interrupted. AWS TransferManager uploads the recorded file, splitting it into a multipart upload if required. After the recorded file is uploaded, the temporary [recording-name].upload file is deleted.
- When the Wowza Streaming Engine application starts or restarts, the module checks to see if any interrupted uploads must be completed. Interrupted single part uploads are restarted from the beginning while interrupted multipart uploads are resumed from the last complete part. If the module is set to not resume uploads after interruptions (s3UploadResumeUploads = false), incomplete multipart uploads are deleted from the S3 bucket.
