This topic describes how to restore an archive object.
You must restore an archive object before you read it. Do not call restoreObject for non-archive objects.
The state conversion process of an archive object is as follows:
- An archive object is in the frozen state.
- After you submit it for restoration, the server restores the object. The object is in the restoring state.
- You can read the object after it is restored. The restored state of the object lasts one day by default. You can prolong this period to a maximum of seven days. Once this period expires, the object returns to the frozen state.
Run the following code to restore an object:
# -*- coding: utf-8 -*- import oss2 # It is highly risky to log on with AccessKey of an Alibaba Cloud account because the account has permissions on all APIs in OSS. We recommend that you log on as a RAM user to access APIs or perform routine operations and maintenance. To create a RAM account, log on to https://ram.console.aliyun.com. auth = oss2. Auth('<yourAccessKeyId>', '<yourAccessKeySecret>') # This example uses endpoint China East 1 (Hangzhou). Specify the actual endpoint based on your requirements. bucket = oss2. Bucket(auth, 'http://oss-cn-hangzhou.aliyuncs.com', '<yourBucketName>') objectName = '<yourObjectName>' bucket.restore_object(objectName)
