Ossutil allows you to create, list, and delete buckets, and set the ACL for a bucket. Other bucket management functions are not supported currently. If you want to use these functions, see osscmd.

Before running these commands, run the config command to configure the AccessKey pair.

  • Create a bucket
    ossutil mb oss://bucket [--acl=acl] [--storage-class sc] [-c file]
    If the ACL is not specified, the bucket has the private permission by default. After a bucket is created, ossutil prints the consumed time and exits. Otherwise, ossutil outputs error information. You can use the --storage-class option to specify the storage mode.

    Run ossutil help mb to view help information about creating a bucket.

    $./ossutil mb oss://test

  • Delete a bucket

    Before you delete a bucket, note the following:

    • The -b option must be specified for deleting a bucket.
    • The deleted bucket will not longer belong to you and may be re-created by another user.
    • Once deleted, data in the bucket cannot be recovered.
    • If no data is stored in your bucket, run the following command to delete the bucket:
      ossutil rm oss://bucket -b
      $./ossutil rm oss://test -b
      Do you really mean to remove the Bucket: test(y or N)? y

    • If your bucket contains objects or multipart data, delete all data before deleting the bucket. You can run the following command to delete all data and your bucket:
      ossutil rm oss://bucket -bar

      Run ossutil help rm to view help information about deleting a bucket.

  • List buckets

    ./ossutil ls or  ./ossutil ls oss://

    Use the -s option to display the short format. Run ossutil help ls to view more help information. 

    $./ossutil ls

  • List files in a bucket

    Ossutil can list the objects and UploadIDs in a bucket. The objects are displayed by default. You can use the -m option to display the UploadIDs and use the -a option to display the objects and UploadIDs simultaneously.

    • List the objects
      ./ossutil ls oss://bucket
      $./ossutil ls oss://ossutil-test

  • Set the ACL for a bucket

    When a bucket is created, the default ACL for the bucket is private. You can run the set-acl command to modify the ACL for a bucket. You must specify the-b option when setting the ACL for a bucket.

    Grant the private permission for bucket1:

    ./ossutil set-acl oss://bucket1 private -b

    Run the help set set-acl command to view more information about setting the ACL.
