DELETE Multiple Objects

You can use this operation to delete multiple objects from a bucket in batches.

Deleted objects cannot be restored or accessed using LIST or GET. The OBS deletes multiple objects simultaneously and returns the deletion result of each object.

The DELETE Multiple Objects operation supports two modes for response: verbose and quiet.

In verbose mode, the returned response includes the deletion result of each requested object in an XML file.

In quiet mode, the returned response includes only results of objects failed to be deleted. The OBS uses verbose mode by default and you can specify quiet mode in the request body.

A DELETE Multiple Objects request must contain headers Content-MD5 and Content-Length to detect network errors.
