Creating a Folder

There is no folder concept in OBS. All elements in buckets are objects. To create a folder in OBS is essentially to create an object whose size is 0 and whose name ends with a slash (/). Such objects have no difference from other objects and can be downloaded and deleted, except that they are displayed as folders in OBS Console.

// Import the OBS library.
var ObsClient = require('./lib/obs');

// Create an instance of ObsClient.
var obsClient = new ObsClient({
    access_key_id: '*** Provide your Access Key ***',       
    secret_access_key: '*** Provide your Secret Key ***',       
    server : 'yourdomainname'
});

obsClient.putObject({
       Bucket : 'bucketname',
       Key : 'parent_directory/'
}, (err, result) => {
       if(err){
              console.error('Error-->' + err);
       }else{
              console.log('Status-->' + result.CommonMsg.Status);
       }
});
// Create an object in the folder.
obsClient.putObject({
       Bucket : 'bucketname',
       Key : 'parent_directory/objectkey'
}, (err, result) => {
       if(err){
              console.error('Error-->' + err);
       }else{
              console.log('Status-->' + result.CommonMsg.Status);
       }
});
NOTE:
  • To create a folder in OBS is to create an object whose size is 0 and whose name ends with a slash (/), in essential.
  • To create a multi-level folder, you only need to create the folder with the last level. For example, if you want to create a folder named src1/src2/src3/, create it directly, no matter whether the src1/ and src1/src2/ folders exist.
