A bucket is a container for objects stored in Object Storage Service (OSS). Every object is contained in a bucket. This topic describes how to list buckets that belong to an Alibaba Cloud account, including all buckets, buckets whose names contain a specific prefix, and a specific number of buckets.

List all buckets that belong to an Alibaba Cloud account

The following code provides an example on how to list all buckets that belong to an Alibaba Cloud account:

OSSGetServiceRequest * getService = [OSSGetServiceRequest new];
    
OSSTask * getServiceTask = [client getService:getService];
[getServiceTask continueWithBlock:^id(OSSTask *task) {
    if (!task.error) {
        OSSGetServiceResult * result = task.result;
        NSLog(@"buckets: %@", result.buckets);
        NSLog(@"owner: %@, %@", result.ownerId, result.ownerDispName);
        [result.buckets enumerateObjectsUsingBlock:^(id  _Nonnull obj, NSUInteger idx, BOOL * _Nonnull stop) {
            NSDictionary * bucketInfo = obj;
            NSLog(@"BucketName: %@", [bucketInfo objectForKey:@"Name"]);
            NSLog(@"CreationDate: %@", [bucketInfo objectForKey:@"CreationDate"]);
            NSLog(@"Location: %@", [bucketInfo objectForKey:@"Location"]);
        }];
    } else {
        NSLog(@"get service failed, error: %@", task.error);
    }
    return nil;
}];

List buckets whose names contain a specific prefix

The following code provides an example on how to list buckets whose names contain the "bucket" prefix:

OSSGetServiceRequest * getService = [OSSGetServiceRequest new];
getService.prefix = @"bucket";

OSSTask * getServiceTask = [client getService:getService];
[getServiceTask continueWithBlock:^id(OSSTask *task) {
    if (!task.error) {
        OSSGetServiceResult * result = task.result;
        NSLog(@"buckets: %@", result.buckets);
        NSLog(@"owner: %@, %@", result.ownerId, result.ownerDispName);
        [result.buckets enumerateObjectsUsingBlock:^(id  _Nonnull obj, NSUInteger idx, BOOL * _Nonnull stop) {
            NSDictionary * bucketInfo = obj;
            NSLog(@"BucketName: %@", [bucketInfo objectForKey:@"Name"]);
            NSLog(@"CreationDate: %@", [bucketInfo objectForKey:@"CreationDate"]);
            NSLog(@"Location: %@", [bucketInfo objectForKey:@"Location"]);
        }];
    } else {
        NSLog(@"get service failed, error: %@", task.error);
    }
    return nil;
}];

List buckets whose names are alphabetically after the bucket specified by marker

The marker parameter specifies a bucket name. Buckets whose names are alphabetically after the marker value are listed. The following code provides an example on how to list buckets whose names are alphabetically after examplebucket:

OSSGetServiceRequest * getService = [OSSGetServiceRequest new];
getService.marker = @"examplebucket";

OSSTask * getServiceTask = [client getService:getService];
[getServiceTask continueWithBlock:^id(OSSTask *task) {
    if (!task.error) {
        OSSGetServiceResult * result = task.result;
        NSLog(@"buckets: %@", result.buckets);
        NSLog(@"owner: %@, %@", result.ownerId, result.ownerDispName);
        [result.buckets enumerateObjectsUsingBlock:^(id  _Nonnull obj, NSUInteger idx, BOOL * _Nonnull stop) {
            NSDictionary * bucketInfo = obj;
            NSLog(@"BucketName: %@", [bucketInfo objectForKey:@"Name"]);
            NSLog(@"CreationDate: %@", [bucketInfo objectForKey:@"CreationDate"]);
            NSLog(@"Location: %@", [bucketInfo objectForKey:@"Location"]);
        }];
    } else {
        NSLog(@"get service failed, error: %@", task.error);
    }
    return nil;
}];

List a specific number of buckets

The following code provides an example on how to list up to 20 buckets:

OSSGetServiceRequest * getService = [OSSGetServiceRequest new];
getService.maxKeys = 20;
    
OSSTask * getServiceTask = [client getService:getService];
[getServiceTask continueWithBlock:^id(OSSTask *task) {
    if (!task.error) {
        OSSGetServiceResult * result = task.result;
        NSLog(@"buckets: %@", result.buckets);
        NSLog(@"owner: %@, %@", result.ownerId, result.ownerDispName);
        [result.buckets enumerateObjectsUsingBlock:^(id  _Nonnull obj, NSUInteger idx, BOOL * _Nonnull stop) {
            NSDictionary * bucketInfo = obj;
            NSLog(@"BucketName: %@", [bucketInfo objectForKey:@"Name"]);
            NSLog(@"CreationDate: %@", [bucketInfo objectForKey:@"CreationDate"]);
            NSLog(@"Location: %@", [bucketInfo objectForKey:@"Location"]);
        }];
    } else {
        NSLog(@"get service failed, error: %@", task.error);
    }
    return nil;
}];
