Obtaining Object Attributes

You can call ObsClient.getObjectMetadata to obtain attributes of an object, including the length, MIME type, customized metadata. Sample code is as follows:

# Import the module.
from com.obs.client.obs_client import ObsClient
# Create an instance of ObsClient.
obsClient = ObsClient(
    access_key_id='*** Provide your Access Key ***',    
    secret_access_key='*** Provide your Secret Key ***',    

resp = obsClient.getObjectMetadata('bucketname', 'objectkey')
if resp.status < 300:
    print('requestId:', resp.requestId)
    print('contentType:', resp.body.contentType)
    print('contentLength:', resp.body.contentLength)
    print('property:', dict(resp.header).get('property'))
    print('errorCode:', resp.errorCode)
    print('errorMessage:', resp.errorMessage)
