You can download existing objects in a bucket in the COS console. Specifically, you can download a single object in the console or download multiple objects in batches using the COSBrowser tool.
Before downloading an object, make sure that the object already exists in the bucket. If no objects have been uploaded, upload them first as instructed in Uploading an Object.
- If the bucket where the object is stored is private read/write, a signature will be automatically calculated and added at the end of the address copied here. For more information on how to generate a signature, see Request Signature.
- The temporary link with a signature is valid for 1 hour from the moment you click to view the Details. You can refresh the validity period of the signature by clicking Refresh.
- By default, if the downloaded object can be directly opened in the browser, then accessing the temporary URL will directly preview the object rather than downloading it.
You can only download individual objects in the COS console. To download multiple objects or folders in batches, we recommend you install the COSBrowser client. Here is how to download objects or folders in batches in the console in conjunction with the COSBrowser client.
