  • Use the oci os object head command and required parameters to get the details of an object in a bucket:

    oci os object head --bucket-name bucket_name --name object_name [OPTIONS]

    For example:

    oci os object head --bucket-name MyBucket --name MyFile.txt
                "accept-ranges": "bytes",
                "access-control-allow-credentials": "true",
                "access-control-allow-methods": "POST,PUT,GET,HEAD,DELETE,OPTIONS",
                "access-control-allow-origin": "*",

  • Run the HeadObject operation to get the details of an object in a bucket.

    Object Storage prepends the Object Storage namespace string and bucket name to the object name when constructing a URL for use with the API:


    The object name is everything after the /o/, which could include hierarchy levels and prefix strings.
