Generating Authorization token

Authorization token to be passed as second paramters in all the function calls is obtained by calling IBM Cloud IAM API. It is a bearer token in JWT format. Find a sample here. Read more about the access here

Documentation for Models


Try out the examples. Go to Security Advisor dashboard for visualizing it. The examples require you to export the following variables:

export account_id=<your account id>
export authorization=<Bearer <token>>
export region=eu-gb
node create_notes.js
node create_occurrences.js

us-south will target the Dallas endpoint. Use eu-gb to target London by exporting region. Default region in the example is us-south Obtain authorization token for filling in the token value. We have used async/await to simplify the examples. Make sure your Node version supports it natively. You can check here
