Inventories

Estimated reading: 3 minutes 680 views

An inventory is a specific list of data that is gathered to provide information about a certain part of the business. The inventory is inspected by an automated test or by a human to determine if one or more controls are satisfied and to analyze the results of the inventory.

Examples of inventories are users, systems, security incidents, devices, servers, databases, logs, etc.

In this guide, we will learn how to retrieve inventories from the TrustCloud API using REST calls. 

Retrieving an API Key

To make requests to the TrustCloud API, an API key is required. To obtain an API key, follow the instructions in the Getting Started Guide to connect to the API.  

Setting up the Request

Before we make any requests, we need to set up our HTTP headers. We need to include the API key in the “Authorization” header, and set the “x-trustcloud-api-version” header to 1 to ensure we are using the correct API version.

Here is an example of the headers we need to include in our HTTP request:

Javascript
				
					const headers = {
  'Authorization': '<your_api_key_here>',
  'x-trustcloud-api-version': '1'
};

				
			
Java
				
					import org.apache.http.client.HttpClient;
import org.apache.http.client.methods.HttpGet;
import org.apache.http.client.methods.CloseableHttpResponse;
import org.apache.http.impl.client.HttpClients;
import org.apache.http.util.EntityUtils;

HttpGet request = new HttpGet("https://api.trustcloud.ai/inventories");
request.setHeader("Authorization", "<your_api_key_here>");
request.setHeader("x-trustcloud-api-version", "1");

				
			
Csharp
				
					using RestSharp;
using RestSharp.Authenticators;
using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;

string apiKey = "<your_api_key_here>";
string apiVersion = "1";
string baseUrl = "https://api.trustcloud.ai";

				
			
Python
				
					import requests
headers = {
   'Authorization': '<your_api_key_here>',
   'x-trustcloud-api-version': '1'
}

				
			
Go
				
					package main

import (
    "encoding/json"
    "fmt"
    "net/http"
)

apiKey := "<your_api_key_here>"
url := "https://api.trustcloud.ai/inventories"

req, err := http.NewRequest("GET", url, nil)
if err != nil {
    fmt.Println(err)
    return
}

req.Header.Set("Authorization", apiKey)
req.Header.Set("x-trustcloud-api-version", "1")

				
			
Bash
				
					GET /inventories HTTP/1.1
Host: api.trustcloud.ai
Authorization: Bearer <your_api_key_here>
x-trustcloud-api-version: 1

				
			

Retrieving All Inventories

To retrieve a list of all inventories, make a GET request to the /inventories endpoint using the headers set up in Step 2.

Javascript
				
					import axios from 'axios';

const headers = {
  'Authorization': '<your_api_key_here>',
  'x-trustcloud-api-version': '1'
};

axios.get('https://api.trustcloud.ai/inventories, { headers })
  .then(response => {
    console.log(response.data);
  })
  .catch(error => {
    console.log(error);
  });

				
			
Java
				
					import org.apache.http.client.HttpClient;
import org.apache.http.client.methods.HttpGet;
import org.apache.http.client.methods.CloseableHttpResponse;
import org.apache.http.impl.client.HttpClients;
import org.apache.http.util.EntityUtils;

HttpGet request = new HttpGet("https://api.trustcloud.ai/inventories");
request.setHeader("Authorization", "<your_api_key_here>");
request.setHeader("x-trustcloud-api-version", "1");

HttpClient client = HttpClients.createDefault();
CloseableHttpResponse response = client.execute(request);

try {
    String responseBody = EntityUtils.toString(response.getEntity());
    System.out.println(responseBody);
} finally {
    response.close();
}

				
			
Csharp
				
					using RestSharp;
using RestSharp.Authenticators;
using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;

string apiKey = "<your_api_key_here>";
string apiVersion = "1";
string baseUrl = "https://api.trustcloud.ai";

var client = new RestClient(baseUrl);
var request = new RestRequest("/inventories", Method.GET);
request.AddHeader("Authorization", apiKey);
request.AddHeader("x-trustcloud-api-version", apiVersion);

IRestResponse response = client.Execute(request);

if (response.IsSuccessful)
{
    Console.WriteLine(response.Content);
}
else
{
    Console.WriteLine("Error: " + response.Content);
}

				
			
Python
				
					import requests
headers = {
   'Authorization': '<your_api_key_here>',
   'x-trustcloud-api-version': '1'
}

response = requests.get('https://api.trustcloud.ai/inventories, headers=headers)
if response.status_code == 200:
   inventory = response.json()
   print(inventory)
else:
   print('Error retrieving Inventories:', response.text)

				
			
Go
				
					package main

import (
    "encoding/json"
    "fmt"
    "net/http"
)

apiKey := "<your_api_key_here>"
url := "https://api.trustcloud.ai/inventories"

req, err := http.NewRequest("GET", url, nil)
if err != nil {
    fmt.Println(err)
    return
}

req.Header.Set("Authorization", apiKey)
req.Header.Set("x-trustcloud-api-version", "1")

client := &http.Client{}
resp, err := client.Do(req)
if err != nil {
    fmt.Println(err)
    return
}
defer resp.Body.Close()

var data []interface{}
err = json.NewDecoder(resp.Body).Decode(&data)
if err != nil {
    fmt.Println(err)
    return
}

fmt.Printf("%+v\n", data)

				
			
Bash
				
					GET /inventories HTTP/1.1
Host: api.trustcloud.ai
Authorization: Bearer <your_api_key_here>
x-trustcloud-api-version: 1

Retrieving a Single Inventory

To retrieve a single inventory, include the inventory ID in the URL by appending the ID to the /inventories endpoint. In this example, we will retrieve the inventory with ID

e98b101d-bd44-4261-b90d-76dc35bad38c:

Javascript
				
					import axios from 'axios';

const headers = {
  'Authorization': '<your_api_key_here>',
  'x-trustcloud-api-version': '1'
};

const id = 'e98b101d-bd44-4261-b90d-76dc35bad38c'; // Replace with the ID of the inventory you want to retrieve

axios.get(`https://api.trustcloud.ai/inventories/${id}`, { headers })
  .then(response => {
    console.log(response.data);
  })
  .catch(error => {
    console.log(error);
  });

Paging

If there are a large number of inventories in a response, it is recommended to use paging to retrieve them in batches. To do this, we can use the limit and page query parameters.

The limit parameter specifies the number of records to retrieve in each page. The default value is 100, but we can set it to any value up to 1000.

The page parameter specifies which page to retrieve. The first page is page 1.

For example, to retrieve the first 10 inventories:

Javascript
				
					import axios from 'axios';

const headers = {
  'Authorization': '<your_api_key_here>',
  'x-trustcloud-api-version': '1'
};

const limit = 10; // The number of Inventory to retrieve per page
const page = 1; // The page number to retrieve (starts at 1)

axios.get('https://api.trustcloud.ai/inventories, {
  headers,
  params: {
    limit,
    page,
  }
})
  .then(response => {
    console.log(response.data);
    console.log(response.headers.link); // log link header
  })
  .catch(error => {
    console.log(error);
  });

				
			
Java
				
					import org.apache.http.client.HttpClient;
import org.apache.http.client.methods.HttpGet;
import org.apache.http.client.methods.CloseableHttpResponse;

To retrieve the next set of inventories, you can obtain the next URL from the link response header, or manually increment the page number. If link is null, that means there are no more pages.

Javascript
				
					import axios from 'axios';

const headers = {
  'Authorization': '<your_api_key_here>',
  'x-trustcloud-api-version': '1'
};

const limit = 10; // The number of Inventories to retrieve per page
const page = 1; // The page number to retrieve (starts at 1)

axios.get('https://api.trustcloud.ai/inventories, {
  headers,
  params: {
    limit,
    page,
  }
})
  .then(response => {
    console.log(response.data);
    console.log(response.headers.link); // log link header
  })
  .catch(error => {
    console.log(error);
  });

				
			
Java
				
					String linkHeader = response.getFirstHeader("link").getValue();
String nextPageUrl = linkHeader.split(";")[0].replace("<", "").replace(">", "");
HttpGet nextPageRequest = new HttpGet(nextPageUrl);
nextPageRequest.setHeader("Authorization", "<your_api_key_here>");
nextPageRequest.setHeader("x-trustcloud-api-version", "1");

request.AddHeader("Authorization", apiKey);
