Iterate Over Tenants

Iterate over your active tenants and their computers when you need to perform an operation on all computers. For example, perform the following steps to create a report that details the protection status of all computers of active tenants:

  1. Search for active tenants. Create a search filter and then use a TenantsApi object to obtain a list of Tenant objects. You use an API key of the primary Deep Security Manager to authenticate this request.
  2. For each tenant, create (or retrieve from storage) an API key.
  3. For each tenant, retrieve all computers. Use a ComputersApi object, and authenticate using the tenant key.
  4. Perform operations on each computer.

For information about searching, see Search for Resources. For more information about creating API keys for tenants, see Authenticate and Interact with a Tenant.

Example: Obtain intrusion prevention rules for all computers of active tenants

The following example iterates over the computers of each active tenant to obtain a list of Intrusion Prevention rules that are applied to each computer.
