The hosting region is configured the first time one of the following happens:
the first Document Processing feature, (including Batch Splitting or creating text searchable documents using OCR) is configured
the first Scan to Cloud Storage scan action is created.
You can change the hosting region at any time.
If you are considering changing the hosting region, make sure your choice complies with company policies about data leaving your current region.
Changing the hosting region cancels all active scan jobs, so it's best to do outside business hours. All future scan jobs will be processed in the new region.
