Last updated: 2019-07-05 15:06:26


1. API Description

This API (GetTopicAttributes) is used to get the attributes of a created topic. In addition to the configurable attributes that are configured when a topic is created, the returned attributes also include the topic creation time (createTime), the time when the topic attributes were last modified (lastModifyTime) and the statistics about the messages in the topic (approximate value).

Domain for public network API request:

Domain for private network API request:

Whenever (including during alpha test) any public network downstream traffic is generated from the use of a public network domain, a fee will be charged. It is strongly recommended that users whose services are on the Tencent Cloud use private network domains, because no fee will be charged for the traffic consumed in the private network.

  • region should be replaced with a specific region: gz (Guangzhou), sh (Shanghai), or bj (Beijing). The region value in the common parameters should be consistent with the region value of the domain. If there is an inconsistency, the request will be sent to the region specified by the domain.
  • Public network domain requests both support http and https. Private network requests only support http.
  • Some of the input parameters are optional. If not specified, the default value will be taken.
  • All the output parameters will be returned to the user when the request is successful; otherwise, at least code, message, and requestId will be returned.
