OCI Bucket Delete Fail

If you have trouble deleting an object storage bucket in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure you may have to clear old multipart uploads. The message may look something like this: Bucket named 'DR-Validation' has pending multipart uploads. Stop all multipart uploads first.

At the time the only way I could do this was through the API. Did not appear like the CLI or Console could clear out the upload. Below is a little python that may help. Below is an example just to show the idea. And of course if you have thousands of multipart uploads(yes its possible); you will need to change this was only for one or two.

#: Script Name  :
#: Author       : Riaan Rossouw
#: Date Created : June 13, 2019
#: Date Updated : July 18, 2019
#: Description  : Python Script to list multipart uploads
#: Examples     : -t tenancy -r region -b bucket
#:              : --tenancy <ocid> --region  <region> --bucket <bucket>

## Will need the api modules
