    Extracting Object Content


    COS Select supports extracting content from objects in the following formats:

    • CSV: an object is stored in CSV format with its data records separated with a specific delimiter.
    • JSON: an object is stored in JSON format, which can be either a JSON file or a JSON list.

    • To use COS Select, you must have the permission on cos:GetObject.
    • CSV and JSON objects need to be encoded in UTF-8.
    • COS Select can extract CSV and JSON objects compressed by gzip or bzip2.
    • COS Select can extract CSV and JSON objects encrypted with SSE-COS.

    Sample code

       // 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
        SelectObjectRequest request = new SelectObjectRequest(bucket, key);
        ObjectSelectionFormat.JSONFormat jSONFormat = new ObjectSelectionFormat.JSONFormat();
       jSONFormat.Type = "DOCUMENT";
       jSONFormat.RecordDelimiter = "\n";
       string outputFile = "select_local_file.json";
        request.SetExpression("Select * from COSObject")
               .SetInputFormat(new ObjectSelectionFormat(null, jSONFormat))
               .SetOutputFormat(new ObjectSelectionFormat(null, jSONFormat))
               .SetCosProgressCallback(delegate (long progress, long total) {
                   Console.WriteLine("OnProgress : " + progress + "," + total);
        SelectObjectResult selectObjectResult =  cosXml.SelectObject(request);
    catch (COSXML.CosException.CosClientException clientEx)
       Console.WriteLine("CosClientException: " + clientEx.StackTrace);
       Console.WriteLine("CosClientException: " + clientEx.Message);
    catch (COSXML.CosException.CosServerException serverEx)
       Console.WriteLine("CosServerException: " + serverEx.GetInfo());
