Show Account Details and List Containers

This operation obtains account metadata and the list of containers in the account.

In the container list, container names are sorted in ascending order based on ASCII code.


OBS (compatible with OpenStack Swift) employs a mechanism that automatically deletes accounts and their data in the background. Therefore, there is no account deletion status corresponding to OpenStack Swift.

The specific differences are as follows:

Account metadata does not include the X-Account-Status.

Showing account details does not involve the 410 Gone return code.
