    Querying Object Metadata


    This API is used to query the metadata of an object, including custom headers and ETag.

    Sample code

    using COSXML.Model.Object;
    using COSXML.Auth;
    using System;
    using COSXML;
    namespace COSSnippet
       public class HeadObjectModel {
          private CosXml cosXml;
          HeadObjectModel() {
           CosXmlConfig config = new CosXmlConfig.Builder()
             .SetRegion("COS_REGION") // Set the default region. For abbreviations of COS regions, visit https://www.tencentcloud.com/document/product/436/6224?from_cn_redirect=1.
           string secretId = "SECRET_ID";   // SecretId of the TencentCloud API. For more information about how to obtain the API key, see https://console.tencentcloud.com/cam/capi.
           string secretKey = "SECRET_KEY"; // SecretKey of the TencentCloud API. For more information about how to obtain the API key, see https://console.tencentcloud.com/cam/capi.
           long durationSecond = 600;          // Validity period of the request signature in seconds
           QCloudCredentialProvider qCloudCredentialProvider = new DefaultQCloudCredentialProvider(secretId, 
             secretKey, durationSecond);
           this.cosXml = new CosXmlServer(config, qCloudCredentialProvider);
          /// Obtain object information
         public void HeadObject()
             // Bucket name in the format of bucketname-APPID. You can get APPID by referring to https://console.tencentcloud.com/developer.
             string bucket = "examplebucket-1250000000";
             string key = "exampleobject"; // Object key
             HeadObjectRequest request = new HeadObjectRequest(bucket, key);
             // Execute the request
             HeadObjectResult result = cosXml.HeadObject(request);
             // Request succeeded
             // Print CRC64 value of the object
             // Print ETag of the object
           catch (COSXML.CosException.CosClientException clientEx)
             // Request failed
             Console.WriteLine("CosClientException: " + clientEx);
           catch (COSXML.CosException.CosServerException serverEx)
             // Request failed
             Console.WriteLine("CosServerException: " + serverEx.GetInfo());
         // .cssg-methods-pragma
          static void Main(string[] args)
           HeadObjectModel m = new HeadObjectModel();
            /// Obtain object information
           // .cssg-methods-pragma
