Filters an organization or source's findings and groups them by their specified properties.

To group across all sources provide a - as the source id. Example: /v1beta1/organizations/{organization_id}/sources/-/findings

HTTP request


The URL uses gRPC Transcoding syntax.

Path parameters



Required. Name of the source to groupBy. Its format is "organizations/[organization_id]/sources/[source_id]". To groupBy across all sources provide a source_id of -. For example: organizations/{organization_id}/sources/-

Request body

The request body contains data with the following structure:

JSON representation
  "filter": string,
  "groupBy": string,
  "readTime": string,
  "pageToken": string,
  "pageSize": integer


Expression that defines the filter to apply across findings. The expression is a list of one 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. Examples include:

  • name
  • sourceProperties.a_property
  • securityMarks.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, sourceProperties.size = 100 is a valid filter string.



Required. Expression that defines what assets fields to use for grouping (including state). The string value should follow SQL syntax: comma separated list of fields. For example: "parent,resourceName".

The following fields are supported:

  • resourceName
  • category
  • state
  • parent

string (Timestamp format)

Time used as a reference point when filtering findings. The filter is limited to findings existing at the supplied time and their values are those at that specific time. Absence of this field will default to the API's version of NOW.

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".



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



The maximum number of results to return in a single response. Default is 10, minimum is 1, maximum is 1000.

Response body

If successful, the response body contains data with the following structure:

Response message for group by findings.

JSON representation
  "groupByResults": [
      object (GroupResult)
  "readTime": string,
  "nextPageToken": string

object (GroupResult)

Group results. There exists an element for each existing unique combination of property/values. The element contains a count for the number of times those specific property/values appear.


string (Timestamp format)

Time used for executing the groupBy request.

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".
