Google Cloud Security Command Center: Node.js Client

release level npm version codecov

Node.js idiomatic client for Cloud Security Command Center.

Cloud Security Command Center helps security teams gather data, identify threats, and act on them before they result in business damage or loss. It offers deep insight into application and data risk so that you can quickly mitigate threats to your cloud resources and evaluate overall health. With Cloud Security Command Center, you can view and monitor an inventory of your cloud assets, scan storage systems for sensitive data, detect common web vulnerabilities, and review access rights to your critical resources, all from a single, centralized dashboard.

A comprehensive list of changes in each version may be found in the CHANGELOG.

Quickstart

Before you begin

  1. Select or create a Cloud Platform project.
  2. Enable billing for your project.
  3. Enable the Google Cloud Security Command Center API.
  4. Set up authentication with a service account so you can access the API from your local workstation.

Installing the client library

npm install @google-cloud/security-center

Using the client library

const sc = require('@google-cloud/security-center');

// Create a client
const client = new sc.SecurityCenterClient();

async function quickstart() {
  // TODO(developer): choose the organization to use
  // const organization = 'your-organization';
  const [source] = await client.createSource({
    parent: client.organizationPath(organization),
    source: {},
  });
  // The newly created source.
  console.log('Source created.');
  console.log(source);
}
quickstart();

Supported Node.js Versions

Our client libraries follow the Node.js release schedule. Libraries are compatible with all current active and maintenance versions of Node.js.

Client libraries targetting some end-of-life versions of Node.js are available, and can be installed via npm dist-tags. The dist-tags follow the naming convention legacy-(version).

Legacy Node.js versions are supported as a best effort:

  • Legacy versions will not be tested in continuous integration.
  • Some security patches may not be able to be backported.
  • Dependencies will not be kept up-to-date, and features will not be backported.

Legacy tags available

  • legacy-8: install client libraries from this dist-tag for versions compatible with Node.js 8.

Versioning

This library follows Semantic Versioning.

This library is considered to be General Availability (GA). This means it is stable; the code surface will not change in backwards-incompatible ways unless absolutely necessary (e.g. because of critical security issues) or with an extensive deprecation period. Issues and requests against GA libraries are addressed with the highest priority.
