Create a symbolic link

A symbolic link is a special object that maps to an object similar to a shortcut used in Windows. You can configure user-defined Object Meta for symbolic links.

Run the following code to create a symbolic link:

<? php
if (is_file(__DIR__ . '/../autoload.php')) {
    require_once __DIR__ . '/../autoload.php';
}
if (is_file(__DIR__ . '/../vendor/autoload.php')) {
    require_once __DIR__ . '/../vendor/autoload.php';
}

use OSS\OssClient;
use OSS\Core\OssException;

// 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.
$accessKeyId = "<yourAccessKeyId>";
$accessKeySecret = "<yourAccessKeySecret>";
// This example uses endpoint China East 1 (Hangzhou). Specify the actual endpoint based on your requirements.
$endpoint = "http://oss-cn-hangzhou.aliyuncs.com";
$bucket= "<yourBucketName>";
$object = "<yourObjectName>";
$symlink = "<yourSymlink>";
try {
    $ossClient = new OssClient($accessKeyId, $accessKeySecret, $endpoint);

    $ossClient->putSymlink($bucket, $symlink, $object);
} catch (OssException $e) {
    printf(__FUNCTION__ . ": FAILED\n");
    printf($e->getMessage() . "\n");
    return;
}
print(__FUNCTION__ . ": OK" . "\n");

Obtain object content for a symbolic link

To obtain a symbolic link, you must have the read permission on it. Run the following code to obtain the object content for a symbolic link:

<? php
if (is_file(__DIR__ . '/../autoload.php')) {
    require_once __DIR__ . '/../autoload.php';
}
if (is_file(__DIR__ . '/../vendor/autoload.php')) {
    require_once __DIR__ . '/../vendor/autoload.php';
}

use OSS\OssClient;
use OSS\Core\OssException;

// 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.
$accessKeyId = "<yourAccessKeyId>";
$accessKeySecret = "<yourAccessKeySecret>";
// This example uses endpoint China East 1 (Hangzhou). Specify the actual endpoint based on your requirements.
$endpoint = "http://oss-cn-hangzhou.aliyuncs.com";
$bucket= "<yourBucketName>";
$symlink = "<yourSymlink>";
try {
    $ossClient = new OssClient($accessKeyId, $accessKeySecret, $endpoint);

    $Symlinks = $ossClient->getSymlink($bucket, $symlink);
} catch (OssException $e) {
    printf(__FUNCTION__ . ": FAILED\n");
    printf($e->getMessage() . "\n");
    return;
}
print(__FUNCTION__ . ": OK" . "\n");
var_dump($Symlinks);
