Overview of the Simple-Objet Web API

On This Page

Introduction

The platform’s Simple-Object Web API enables working with containers and performing simple data-object operations via a RESTful interface that resembles Amazon’s Simple Storage Service (S3) API. In addition to the S3-like capabilities, the Simple-Object Web API enables appending data to existing objects (see Appending Data).

For information on how to secure your Simple-Object Web API requests — including support for HTTPS and HTTP user-authentication methods — see Securing Your Web-API Requests.

For an overview of the Simple-Object Web API response syntax, see the response-syntax documentation in the Data-Service Web-API General Structure reference, which applies also to the Simple-Object Web API (with the exception of the error-information syntax in the response body).
