Add a Google Cloud Platform Connector

You can use the SDK to add a Google Cloud Platform (GCP) connector and synchronize virtual machines (VMs) from GCP to Workload Security. For an overview, see Create a Google Cloud Platform service account.

Before you begin, you must prepare a GCP service account for use with Workload Security.

Use the following procedure to add a GCP connector:

  1. Create a GcpConnector object and set the name and service account. The name and service account are required properties. The length of the name cannot exceed 255 characters.
  2. Create a GcpConnectorsApi object and use it to create the GcpConnector on Workload Security.

For a list of properties that you can configure, see the Create a Computer operation in the API Reference.

def create_gcp_connector(api, configuration, api_version, api_exception, name, service_account):
   api_instance = api.GCPConnectorsApi(api.ApiClient(configuration))
   gcp_connector = api.GCPConnector() = name
   gcp_connector.service_account = service_account

  api_response = api_instance.create_gcp_connector(gcp_connector, api_version)
  return api_response

Submit a Synchronization Action for a GCP Connector

After you create a GCP connector successfully, you can indicate to the GCP connector to trigger synchronization.

Use the following high-level procedure to submit a synchronization action:

  1. Create anAction object and set the type to synchronize. The type is a required property.
  2. Create a GcpConnectorActionsApi object and use it to submit an action by a specific GCP connector ID to Workload Security.

def create_gcp_connector_action(api, configuration, api_version, api_exception, gcp_connector_id):
   api_instance = api.GCPConnectorActionsApi(api.ApiClient(configuration))
   gcp_connector_action = api.Action()
   gcp_connector_action.type = "synchronize"

  api_response = api_instance.create_gcp_connector_action(gcp_connector_id, gcp_connector_action, api_version)
  return api_response
