Submit a report request to be processed in the background. If the submission succeeds, the API returns a 200 status and an ID that refer to the report request. In addition to the HTTP status 200, the state of "enqueued" means that the request succeeded.


You will need authorization for the scope to make a valid call.

If unset, the scope for this method defaults to You can set the scope for this method like this: apigee1 --scope <scope> organizations environments-security-reports-create ...

Required Scalar Argument

  • <parent> (string)
    • Required. The parent resource name. Must be of the form organizations/{org}/environments/{env}.

Required Request Value

The request value is a data-structure with various fields. Each field may be a simple scalar or another data-structure. In the latter case it is advised to set the field-cursor to the data-structure's field to specify values more concisely.

For example, a structure like this:

  csv-delimiter: string
  dimensions: [string]
  display-name: string
  envgroup-hostname: string
  filter: string
  group-by-time-unit: string
  limit: integer
  mime-type: string
  report-definition-id: string

can be set completely with the following arguments which are assumed to be executed in the given order. Note how the cursor position is adjusted to the respective structures, allowing simple field names to be used most of the time.

  • -r . csv-delimiter=aliquyam
    • Delimiter used in the CSV file, if outputFormat is set to csv. Defaults to the , (comma) character. Supported delimiter characters include comma (,), pipe (|), and tab (\t).
  • dimensions=sanctus
    • A list of dimensions.
    • Each invocation of this argument appends the given value to the array.
  • display-name=invidunt
    • Security Report display name which users can specify.
  • envgroup-hostname=dolor
    • Hostname needs to be specified if query intends to run at host level. This field is only allowed when query is submitted by CreateHostSecurityReport where analytics data will be grouped by organization and hostname.
  • filter=eos
    • Boolean expression that can be used to filter data. Filter expressions can be combined using AND/OR terms and should be fully parenthesized to avoid ambiguity. See Analytics metrics, dimensions, and filters reference for more information on the fields available to filter on. For more information on the tokens that you use to build filter expressions, see Filter expression syntax.
  • group-by-time-unit=magna
    • Time unit used to group the result set. Valid values include: second, minute, hour, day, week, or month. If a query includes groupByTimeUnit, then the result is an aggregation based on the specified time unit and the resultant timestamp does not include milliseconds precision. If a query omits groupByTimeUnit, then the resultant timestamp includes milliseconds precision.
  • limit=90
    • Maximum number of rows that can be returned in the result.
  • mime-type=gubergren
    • Valid values include: csv or json. Defaults to json. Note: Configure the delimiter for CSV output using the csvDelimiter property.
  • report-definition-id=erat
    • Report Definition ID.

About Cursors

The cursor position is key to comfortably set complex nested structures. The following rules apply:

  • The cursor position is always set relative to the current one, unless the field name starts with the . character. Fields can be nested such as in -r f.s.o .
  • The cursor position is set relative to the top-level structure if it starts with ., e.g. -r .s.s
  • You can also set nested fields without setting the cursor explicitly. For example, to set a value relative to the current cursor position, you would specify -r struct.sub_struct=bar.
  • You can move the cursor one level up by using ... Each additional . moves it up one additional level. E.g. ... would go three levels up.

Optional Output Flags

The method's return value a JSON encoded structure, which will be written to standard output by default.

  • -o out
    • out specifies the destination to which to write the server's result to. It will be a JSON-encoded structure. The destination may be - to indicate standard output, or a filepath that is to contain the received bytes. If unset, it defaults to standard output.

Optional General Properties

The following properties can configure any call, and are not specific to this method.

  • -p $-xgafv=string

    • V1 error format.
  • -p access-token=string

    • OAuth access token.
  • -p alt=string

    • Data format for response.
  • -p callback=string

    • JSONP
  • -p fields=string

    • Selector specifying which fields to include in a partial response.
  • -p key=string

    • API key. Your API key identifies your project and provides you with API access, quota, and reports. Required unless you provide an OAuth 2.0 token.
  • -p oauth-token=string

    • OAuth 2.0 token for the current user.
  • -p pretty-print=boolean

    • Returns response with indentations and line breaks.
  • -p quota-user=string

    • Available to use for quota purposes for server-side applications. Can be any arbitrary string assigned to a user, but should not exceed 40 characters.
  • -p upload-type=string

    • Legacy upload protocol for media (e.g. "media", "multipart").
  • -p upload-protocol=string

    • Upload protocol for media (e.g. "raw", "multipart").
