# How to obtain the properties of a CloudObject

Is there a documented way to obtain the properties of a CloudObject like name, path, type, extension without using CloudObjectInformation? E.g., the functions FileType and FileByteCount seem to work for CloudObjects, but other built-in functions like FileExtension or FileDate do not.

• FileDate seems to work now (for \$CloudVersion "1.41.1 (April 27, 2017)""1.41.1 (April 27, 2017)" ) – Rolf Mertig May 29 '17 at 8:33
