listObjects method

Returns a list of objects in a bucket.

Pagination is used for output. You can get a list of up to 1,000 objects per request. If there are more objects, make several consecutive requests.


GET /{bucket} HTTP/1.1

Path parameters

Parameter Description
bucket Bucket name.

Query parameters

All the parameters listed in the table are optional.

Parameter Description
delimiter Delimiter character.

If this parameter is specified, Object Storage interprets the key as the path to the file with folders separated by the delimiter character. In response to the request, the user will get a list of files and folders in the bucket. The files will be output in the Contents elements, and the folders will be in the CommonPrefixes elements.

If the request also specifies the prefix parameter, Object Storage will return the list of files and folders in the prefix folder.
marker Key to start the output from.

In the resulting output, Object Storage leaves the keys starting from the one following the marker.
max-keys Maximum number of elements in a response.

By default, Object Storage outputs no more than 1,000 Contents and CommonPrefixes elements. This parameter should be used if you need to get less than 1,000 elements in a single response.

If the number of keys meeting the selection criteria is greater than the number that could fit in the output, the response contains <IsTruncated>true</IsTruncated>.

To get all output elements if there are more than the max-keys value, make several consecutive requests to Object Storage with the marker parameter, where for each request, the marker is equal to the value of the MaxKeys element from the previous response.
prefix String to start the key from.

Object Storage selects only those keys which start with prefix.

Can be used simultaneously with the delimiter parameter. In this case, the output logic is the same as that specified in the delimiter parameter description.


In a request, use only common request headers.



A response can only contain common response headers.
