James Berger defines in [1] an objective Bayesian analysis as "a convention we should adopt in scenarios in which a subjective analysis is not tenable." Such analysis is performed by means of the so-called objective priors that have received other names like noninformative, non-subjective, reference, conventional, default or neutral.
