HTTP request


The URL uses gRPC Transcoding syntax.

Path parameters



Required. Name of the organization or project the assets belong to. Format: "organizations/[organization-number]" (such as "organizations/123"), "projects/[project-id]" (such as "projects/my-project-id"), or "projects/[project-number]" (such as "projects/12345").

Authorization requires one or more of the following IAM permissions on the specified resource parent:

  • cloudasset.assets.listResource
  • cloudasset.assets.listIamPolicy

Query parameters


string (Timestamp format)

Timestamp to take an asset snapshot. This can only be set to a timestamp between the current time and the current time minus 35 days (inclusive). If not specified, the current time will be used. Due to delays in resource data collection and indexing, there is a volatile window during which running the same query may get different results.

A timestamp in RFC3339 UTC "Zulu" format, with nanosecond resolution and up to nine fractional digits. Examples: "2014-10-02T15:01:23Z" and "2014-10-02T15:01:23.045123456Z".



A list of asset types to take a snapshot for. For example: "".

Regular expression is also supported. For example:

  • "*" snapshots resources whose asset type starts with "".
  • ".*Instance" snapshots resources whose asset type ends with "Instance".
  • ".*Instance.*" snapshots resources whose asset type contains "Instance".

See RE2 for all supported regular expression syntax. If the regular expression does not match any supported asset type, an INVALID_ARGUMENT error will be returned.

If specified, only matching assets will be returned, otherwise, it will snapshot all asset types. See Introduction to Cloud Asset Inventory for all supported asset types.


enum (ContentType)

Asset content type. If not specified, no content but the asset name will be returned.



The maximum number of assets to be returned in a single response. Default is 100, minimum is 1, and maximum is 1000.



The nextPageToken returned from the previous ListAssetsResponse, or unspecified for the first ListAssetsRequest. It is a continuation of a prior assets.list call, and the API should return the next page of assets.
