HttpData class

An HttpData resource specifies a list of objects on the web to be transferred over HTTP. The information of the objects to be transferred is contained in a file referenced by a URL. The first line in the file must be "TsvHttpData-1.0", which specifies the format of the file. Subsequent lines specify the information of the list of objects, one object per list entry. Each entry has the following tab-delimited fields:

  • HTTP URL — The location of the object.

  • Length — The size of the object in bytes.

  • MD5 — The base64-encoded MD5 hash of the object.

For an example of a valid TSV file, see Transferring data from URLs.

When transferring data based on a URL list, keep the following in mind:

  • When an object located at http(s)://hostname:port/<URL-path> is transferred to a data sink, the name of the object at the data sink is <hostname>/<URL-path>.

  • If the specified size of an object does not match the actual size of the object fetched, the object will not be transferred.

  • If the specified MD5 does not match the MD5 computed from the transferred bytes, the object transfer will fail. For more information, see Generating MD5 hashes

  • Ensure that each URL you specify is publicly accessible. For example, in Cloud Storage you can share an object publicly ( and get a link to it.

  • Storage Transfer Service obeys robots.txt rules and requires the source HTTP server to support Range requests and to return a Content-Length header in each response.

  • ObjectConditions have no effect when filtering objects to transfer.
