Web Security Scanner API C++ Client Library

An idiomatic C++ client library for Web Security Scanner, a service that scans your Compute and App Engine apps for common web vulnerabilities.

While this library is GA, please note Google Cloud C++ client libraries do not follow Semantic Versioning.


The following shows the code that you'll run in the google/cloud/websecurityscanner/quickstart/ directory, which should give you a taste of the Web Security Scanner API C++ client library API.

#include "google/cloud/websecurityscanner/v1/web_security_scanner_client.h"
#include "google/cloud/project.h"
#include <iostream>

int main(int argc, char* argv[]) try {
  if (argc != 2) {
    std::cerr << "Usage: " << argv[0] << " project-id\n";
    return 1;

  namespace websecurityscanner = ::google::cloud::websecurityscanner_v1;
  auto client = websecurityscanner::WebSecurityScannerClient(
  auto const project = google::cloud::Project(argv[1]);
  google::cloud::websecurityscanner::v1::ListScanConfigsRequest request;
  for (auto c : client.ListScanConfigs(request)) {
    if (!c) throw std::move(c).status();
    std::cout << c->DebugString() << "\n";

  return 0;
} catch (google::cloud::Status const& status) {
  std::cerr << "google::cloud::Status thrown: " << status << "\n";
  return 1;
