Introduction to Cloud Asset Inventory

Cloud Asset Inventory provides inventory services based on a time series database. This database keeps a five week history of Google Cloud Platform (GCP) asset metadata. The Cloud Asset Inventory export service allows you to export all asset metadata at a certain timestamp or export event change history during a timeframe.


Export asset metadata at a timestamp

The Cloud Asset Inventory export service allows you to export all the asset metadata at a given timestamp to a Cloud Storage file.

Export asset history

The Cloud Asset Inventory export service allows you to export the event change history of multiple assets during a given timeframe. The exported event change history shows you all the create, delete, and update events for the specifed assets over time.
