ECS 2.1 – ECS EMC Atmos Object Service API support
Table of Contents
More information on the supported operations can be found in the Atmos Programmer’s Guide which is available from EMC Supportzone.
Wire format compatibility is provided for all supported operations. Therefore, the operations described in the Atmos Programmer's Guide apply to the API operations exposed by ECS.
The Atmos Programmer's Guide also provides information on authenticating with the Atmos API and provides comprehensive examples for many of the supported features.Back to Top
The following Atmos REST API calls are supported. Calls for the object and namespace interfaces are shown.
- The x-emc-wschecksum header is not supported.
- HTML form upload is not supported.
- GET /rest/objects does not support different response types with x-emc-accept. For example, text/plain is not supported.
- Expiration and retention of objects is not supported.
The following Atmos REST API calls are not supported.
Checksum protection using the x-emc-wschecksum custom header is not supported.
These calls are as follows:Back to Top

There may be cases where you need to append to an object, but determining the exact byte offset is not efficient or useful. For this scenario, ECS provides the ability to atomically append data to the object without specifying an offset (the correct offset is returned to you in the response).
A Range header with the special value bytes=-1- can be used to append data to an object. In this way, the object can be extended without knowing the existing object size.
The format is: Range: bytes=-1-
A sample request showing appending to an existing object using a Range value of bytes=-1-. Here the value and cat is sent in the request.

The offset position at which the data was appended is returned in the x-emc-append-offset header.
When retrieving the object again, you can see the full value The quick green fox jumps over the lazy dog and cat. You have appended data to this object.Back to Top
