Creating a Bucket

A bucket is a global namespace of OBS and is a data container. It functions as a root directory of a file system and can store objects. The following code shows how to create a bucket:

resp = obsClient.createBucket('bucketname')
if resp.status < 300:    
    print('requestId:', resp.requestId)
    print('errorCode:', resp.errorCode)
    print('errorMessage:', resp.errorMessage)
  • Bucket names are globally unique. Ensure that the bucket you create is named differently from any other bucket.
  • A bucket name must comply with the following rules:
    • Contains 3 to 63 characters chosen from lowercase letters, digits, hyphens (-), and periods (.), and starts with a digit or letter.
    • Cannot be an IP-like address.
    • Cannot start or end with a hyphen (-) or period (.)
    • Cannot contain two consecutive periods (.), for example, my..bucket.
    • Cannot contain periods (.) and hyphens (-) adjacent to each other, for example, my-.bucket or my.-bucket.
  • If you create buckets of the same name, no error will be reported and the bucket properties comply with those set in the first creation request.
