Class GroupAssetsRequest (0.4.0)

Request message for grouping by assets.

Expression that defines the filter to apply across assets. The expression is a list of zero or more restrictions combined via logical operators AND and OR. Parentheses are not supported, and OR has higher precedence than AND. Restrictions have the form <field> <operator> <value> and may have a - character in front of them to indicate negation. The fields map to those defined in the Asset resource. Examples include: - name - security_center_properties.resource_name - resource_properties.a_property - security_marks.marks.marka The supported operators are: - = for all value types. - >, <, >=, <= for integer values. - :, meaning substring matching, for strings. The supported value types are: - string literals in quotes. - integer literals without quotes. - boolean literals true and false without quotes. For example, resource_properties.size = 100 is a valid filter string.

When compare_duration is set, the Asset's "state" property is updated to indicate whether the asset was added, removed, or remained present during the compare_duration period of time that precedes the read_time. This is the time between (read_time - compare_duration) and read_time. The state value is derived based on the presence of the asset at the two points in time. Intermediate state changes between the two times don't affect the result. For example, the results aren't affected if the asset is removed and re-created again. Possible "state" values when compare_duration is specified:

  • "ADDED": indicates that the asset was not present before compare_duration, but present at reference_time. - "REMOVED": indicates that the asset was present at the start of compare_duration, but not present at reference_time. - "ACTIVE": indicates that the asset was present at both the start and the end of the time period defined by compare_duration and reference_time. This field is ignored if state is not a field in group_by.

    The value returned by the last GroupAssetsResponse; indicates that this is a continuation of a prior GroupAssets call, and that the system should return the next page of data.
