The following sample code shows how to query the region or location of a bucket:

const OSS = require('ali-oss')
const client = new OSS({  
  // Obtain access credentials from environment variables. Before you run the sample code, make sure that you have configured environment variables OSS_ACCESS_KEY_ID and OSS_ACCESS_KEY_SECRET. 
  accessKeyId: process.env.OSS_ACCESS_KEY_ID,
  accessKeySecret: process.env.OSS_ACCESS_KEY_SECRET,
  // Specify the name of the bucket. 
  bucket: 'yourbucketname'

async function getLocation() {
  try {
    const result = await client.getBucketInfo();
  } catch (e) {
