HTTP List Buckets

Lists all known buckets (ones that have keys stored in them).

Not for production use

Similar to the list keys operation, this requires traversing all keys stored in the cluster and should not be used in production.


# Using the default bucket type
GET /buckets?buckets=true

# Using a non-default bucket type
GET /types/<type>/buckets?buckets=true

Required query parameter:

  • buckets=true - required to invoke the list-buckets functionality


Normal status codes:

  • 200 OK

Important headers:

  • Content-Type - application/json

The JSON object in the response will contain a single entry, “buckets”, which will be an array of bucket names.
