  • Each name can contain uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers, and underscores (_).

  • Each name must begin with a letter or underscore.

Instance name conventions

  • Each name can be 3 to 16 bytes in length.

  • Each name can contain uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers, and hyphens (-).

  • Each name must begin with a letter.

  • No name can end with a hyphen.
