Hides a file so that downloading by name will not find the file
Previous versions of the file are still stored; see File Versions about what it means to hide a file.
v1: Application keys (July 26, 2018)
Incompatible change: After calling b2_authorize_account with an application key that does not have the right permissions, this call will return a 401 Unauthorized.
v1: Original release (September 22, 2015)
This API endpoint can be called using a
GET request by converting the parameters in the request body to query parameters.
An account authorization token, obtained from b2_authorize_account.
The token must have the
The bucket containing the file to hide.
The name of the file to hide.
The request succeeded.
The response headers include the Content-Type that was specified when the file was uploaded. They also include the X-Bz-FileName and X-Bz-Content-Sha1 headers, plus X-Bz-Info-* headers for any custom file info that was provided with the upload. The X-Bz-FileName uses percent-encoding, as if it were a URL parameter.
The account that owns the file.
One of "start", "upload", "hide", "folder", or other values added in the future. "upload" means a file that was uploaded to B2 Cloud Storage. "start" means that a large file has been started, but not finished or canceled. "hide" means a file version marking the file as hidden, so that it will not show up in b2_list_file_names. "folder" is used to indicate a virtual folder when listing files.
The identifier for the bucket.
The number of bytes stored in the file. Only useful when the action is "upload". Always 0 when the action is "start", "hide", or "folder".
The SHA1 of the bytes stored in the file as a 40-digit hex string. Large files do not have SHA1 checksums, and the value is "none". The value is null when the action is "hide" or "folder".
The MD5 of the bytes stored in the file as a 32-digit hex string. Not all files have an MD5 checksum, so this field is optional, and set to null for files that do not have one. Large files do not have MD5 checksums, and the value is null. The value is also null when the action is "hide" or "folder".
When the action is "upload" or "start", the MIME type of the file, as specified when the file was uploaded. For "hide" action, always "application/x-bz-hide-marker". For "folder" action, always null.
The custom information that was uploaded with the file. This is a JSON object, holding the name/value pairs that were uploaded with the file.
The name of this file, which can be used with b2_download_file_by_name.
The Object Lock retention settings for this file, if any. This field is filtered based on application key capabilities; the
readFileRetentions capability is required to access the value. See Object Lock for more details on response structure. This field is omitted when the action is "hide" or "folder".
The Object Lock legal hold status for this file, if any. This field is filtered based on application key capabilities; the
readFileLegalHolds capability is required to access the value. See Object Lock for more details on response structure. This field is omitted when the action is "hide" or "folder".
The Replication Status for this file, if any. This will show either
REPLICA For details see Cloud Replication. This field is omitted when the file is not part of a replication rule.
When the file is encrypted with Server-Side Encryption, the mode ("SSE-B2" or "SSE-C") and algorithm used to encrypt the data. If the file is not encrypted with Server-Side Encryption, then both mode and algorithm will be
null. This field is omitted when the action is "hide" or "folder".
This is a UTC time when this file was uploaded. It is a base 10 number of milliseconds since midnight, January 1, 1970 UTC. This fits in a 64 bit integer such as the type "long" in the programming language Java. It is intended to be compatible with Java's time long. For example, it can be passed directly into the java call Date.setTime(long time). Always 0 when the action is "folder".
