  2. Enable billing for your project.
  3. Enable the Security Center Management API 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/securitycentermanagement

Using the client library

 * This snippet has been automatically generated and should be regarded as a code template only.
 * It will require modifications to work.
 * It may require correct/in-range values for request initialization.
 * TODO(developer): Uncomment these variables before running the sample.
 *  Required. Name of parent to list effective custom modules. Its format is
 *  "organizations/{organization}/locations/{location}",
 *  "folders/{folder}/locations/{location}",
 *  or
 *  "projects/{project}/locations/{location}"
// const parent = 'abc123'
 *  Optional. The maximum number of results to return in a single response.
 *  Default is 10, minimum is 1, maximum is 1000.
// const pageSize = 1234
 *  Optional. The value returned by the last call indicating a continuation
// const pageToken = 'abc123'

// Imports the Securitycentermanagement library
const {SecurityCenterManagementClient} =

// Instantiates a client
const securitycentermanagementClient = new SecurityCenterManagementClient();

async function callListEffectiveEventThreatDetectionCustomModules() {

  const request = {

  // Run request
  const iterable =
  for await (const response of iterable) {



Samples are in the samples/ directory. Each sample's has instructions for running its sample.

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. If you are using an end-of-life version of Node.js, we recommend that you update as soon as possible to an actively supported LTS version.

Google's client libraries support legacy versions of Node.js runtimes on a best-efforts basis with the following warnings:

  • Legacy versions are not tested in continuous integration.
  • Some security patches and features cannot be backported.
  • Dependencies cannot be kept up-to-date.

Client libraries targeting some end-of-life versions of Node.js are available, and can be installed through npm dist-tags. The dist-tags follow the naming convention legacy-(version). For example, npm install @google-cloud/securitycentermanagement@legacy-8 installs client libraries for versions compatible with Node.js 8.


This library follows Semantic Versioning.

This library is considered to be 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 stable libraries are addressed with the highest priority.
