A bucket is a container that is used to store objects in Object Storage Service (OSS). All objects in OSS are contained in buckets. Bucket names are listed in alphabetical order. You can list buckets that belong to the current Alibaba Cloud account in all regions and meet the specific conditions.


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

#include "oss_api.h"
#include "aos_http_io.h"
/* Specify the endpoint of the region in which the bucket is located. For example, if the bucket is located in the China (Hangzhou) region, set the endpoint to https://oss-cn-hangzhou.aliyuncs.com. */
const char *endpoint = "yourEndpoint";
/* The AccessKey pair of an Alibaba Cloud account has permissions on all API operations. Using these credentials to perform operations in OSS is a high-risk operation. We recommend that you use a RAM user to call API operations or perform routine O&M. To create a RAM user, log on to the RAM console. */
const char *access_key_id = "yourAccessKeyId";
const char *access_key_secret = "yourAccessKeySecret";
void init_options(oss_request_options_t *options)
    options->config = oss_config_create(options->pool);
    /* Use a char* string to initialize the aos_string_t data type. */
    aos_str_set(&options->config->endpoint, endpoint);
    aos_str_set(&options->config->access_key_id, access_key_id);
    aos_str_set(&options->config->access_key_secret, access_key_secret);
    /* Specify whether to use CNAME to access OSS. A value of 0 indicates that CNAME is not used. */
    options->config->is_cname = 0;
    /* Configure network parameters such as the timeout period. */
    options->ctl = aos_http_controller_create(options->pool, 0);
int main(int argc, char *argv[])
    /* Call the aos_http_io_initialize method in main() to initialize global resources such as networks and memory. */
    if (aos_http_io_initialize(NULL, 0) != AOSE_OK) {
    /* Create a memory pool to manage memory. aos_pool_t is equivalent to apr_pool_t. The code used to create a memory pool is included in the APR library. */
    aos_pool_t *pool;
    /* Create a memory pool. The value of the second parameter is NULL. This value indicates that the pool does not inherit other memory pools. */
    aos_pool_create(&pool, NULL);
    /* Create and initialize options. This parameter includes global configuration information such as endpoint, access_key_id, access_key_secret, is_cname, and curl. */
    oss_request_options_t *oss_client_options;
    /* Allocate the memory resources in the memory pool to the options. */
    oss_client_options = oss_request_options_create(pool);
    /* Initialize oss_client_options. */
    /* Initialize the parameters. */
    aos_table_t *resp_headers = NULL; 
    aos_status_t *resp_status = NULL; 
    oss_list_buckets_params_t *params = NULL;
    oss_list_bucket_content_t *content = NULL;
    int size = 0;
    params = oss_create_list_buckets_params(pool);
    /* List buckets. */
    resp_status = oss_list_bucket(oss_client_options, params, &resp_headers);
    if (aos_status_is_ok(resp_status)) {
        printf("list buckets succeeded\n");
    } else {
        printf("list buckets failed\n");
    /* Display the listed buckets. */
    aos_list_for_each_entry(oss_list_bucket_content_t, content, &params->bucket_list, node) {
        printf("BucketName: %s\n", content->name.data);
    /* Release the memory pool. This operation releases the memory resources allocated for the request. */
    /* Release the allocated global resources. */
    return 0;
