Create or replace object

put

/v1/{account}/{container}/{object}

Creates an object with data content and metadata, or replaces an existing object with data content and metadata.

For information about copying objects, see Copying Objects in Using Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Object Storage Classic.

Request

Path Parameters
account
Type: string
Required: true
The unique name for the account. An account is also known as the project or tenant.
container
Type: string
Required: true
The unique name for the container. The container name must be from 1 to 256 characters long and can start with any character and contain any pattern. Character set must be UTF-8. The container name cannot contain a slash (/) character because this character delimits the container and object name. For example, /account/container/object.
object
Type: string
Required: true
The unique name for the object.
Query Parameters
multipart-manifest
Type: string
If ?multipart-manifest=put, the object is a static large object manifest and the body contains the manifest.
temp_url_expires
Type: integer (timestamp)
Minimum Value: 0
The date and time in UNIX Epoch time stamp format when the signature for temporary URLs expires.

For example, 1440619048 is equivalent to Mon, Wed, 26 Aug 2015 19:57:28 GMT.

This parameter is required when using temporary URLS, but otherwise ignored.

temp_url_sig
Type: string
Used with temporary URLs to sign the request with an HMAC-SHA1 cryptographic signature that defines the allowed HTTP method, expiration date, full path to the object, and the secret key for the temporary URL.

This parameter is required when using temporary URLS, but otherwise ignored.

Header Parameters
Content-Disposition
Type: string
If set, specifies the override behavior for the browser. For example, this header might specify that the browser use a download program to save this file rather than show the file, which is the default.
Content-Encoding
Type: string
If set, the value of the Content-Encoding metadata.
Content-Length
Type: integer
Minimum Value: 0
Set to the length of the object content. Do not set if chunked transfer encoding is being used.
Content-Type
Type: string
Changes the MIME type for the object.
ETag
Type: string
The MD5 checksum value of the request body. For example, the MD5 checksum value of the object content. You are strongly recommended to compute the MD5 checksum value of object content and include it in the request. This enables the Object Storage API to check the integrity of the upload. The value is not quoted.
If-None-Match
Type: string
In combination with Expect: 100-Continue, specify an If-None-Match: * header to query whether the server already has a copy of the object before any data is sent.
Transfer-Encoding
Type: string
Set to chunked to enable chunked transfer encoding. If used, do not set the Content-Length header to a non-zero value.
X-Auth-Token
Type: string
Authentication token. Not specified if temp_url_sig and temp_url_expires are present. Otherwise, if you omit this header, your request fails unless the account owner has granted you access through an access control list (ACL).
X-Copy-From
Type: string
If set, this is the name of an object used to create the new object by copying the X-Copy-From object. The value is in form {container}/{object}. You must UTF-8-encode and then URL-encode the names of the container and object before you include them in the header.

Using PUT with X-Copy-From has the same effect as using the COPY operation to copy an object.

X-Delete-After
Type: integer
Minimum Value: 0
Minimum Value: > true
The number of seconds after which the system removes the object. Internally, the Object Storage system stores this value in the X-Delete-At metadata item.
X-Delete-At
Type: integer (timestamp)
Minimum Value: 0
The date and time in UNIX Epoch time stamp format when the system removes the object.

For example, 1440619048 is equivalent to Mon, Wed, 26 Aug 2015 19:57:28 GMT.

X-Object-Meta-{name}
Type: string
The object metadata, where {name} is the name of the metadata item.

You must specify an X-Object-Meta-{name} header for each metadata {name} item that you want to add or update.

Headers
Content-Length
Type: integer
Minimum Value: 0
Maximum Value: 0
This value is zero (0)
Content-Type
Type: string
The MIME type of the object.
Date
Type: string (date-time)
The transaction date and time.

The date and time stamp format is ISO 8601:

CCYY-MM-DDThh:mm:ss±hh:mm
For example, 2015-08-27T09:49:58-05:00.

The ±hh:mm value, if included, is the time zone as an offset from UTC. In the previous example, the offset value is -05:00.

A null value indicates that the token never expires.

ETag
Type: string
For objects smaller than 5 GB, this value is the MD5 checksum of the uploaded object content. The value is not quoted.

If you supplied an ETag request header and the operation was successful, the values are the same.

If you did not supply an ETag request header, check the ETag response header value against the object content you have just uploaded.

For static large objects, this value is the MD5 checksum of the concatenated string of MD5 checksums and ETags for each of the segments in the manifest, and not the MD5 checksum of the content that was uploaded. Also the value is enclosed in double-quotes. For dynamic large objects, the value is the MD5 checksum of the empty string.

Last-Modified
Type: string (date-time)
The date and time when the object was last modified.

The date and time stamp format is ISO 8601:

CCYY-MM-DDThh:mm:ss±hh:mm
For example, 2015-08-27T09:49:58-05:00.

The ±hh:mm value, if included, is the time zone as an offset from UTC. In the previous example, the offset value is -05:00.

X-Timestamp
Type: integer (timestamp)
Minimum Value: 0
The date and time in UNIX Epoch time stamp format when the account, container, or object was initially created as a current version.

For example, 1440619048 is equivalent to Mon, Wed, 26 Aug 2015 19:57:28 GMT.

X-Trans-Id
Type: string (uuid)
A unique transaction ID for this request. Your service provider might need this value if you report a problem.
401 Response
Request does not include an authentication token, or authentication token specified in the request is not valid. It may have expired. Authentication tokens expire after 30 minutes.

Forbidden. Possible causes:

  • You don't have the required permission to perform the operation on the specified container. For example, there may be a change in the roles assigned to your user or the access privileges defined for the container specified in the request.
