google_service_accounts

Use the google_service_accounts InSpec audit resource to test properties of all, or a filtered group of, GCP service accounts for a project.


Syntax

A google_service_accounts resource block collects GCP service accounts by project then tests that group.

describe google_service_accounts(project: 'chef-inspec-gcp') do
  it { should exist }
end

Use this InSpec resource to enumerate IDs then test in-depth using google_service_account.

google_service_accounts(project: 'chef-inspec-gcp').service_account_names.each do |sa_name|
  describe google_service_account(name: sa_name) do
    it { should exist }
  end
end


Examples

The following examples show how to use this InSpec audit resource.

Test that there are no more than a specified number of service accounts for the project

describe google_service_accounts(project: 'chef-inspec-gcp') do
  its('count') { should be <= 1000}
end

Test that an expected service account display name is available

describe google_service_accounts(project: 'chef-inspec-gcp') do
  its('service_account_display_names'){ should include "gcp_sa_name" }
end

Test that an expected service account unique identifier is available

describe google_service_accounts(project: 'chef-inspec-gcp') do
  its('service_account_ids'){ should include 12345678 }
end    

Test that a service account with expected name is available

describe google_service_accounts(project: 'dummy-project') do
  its('service_account_names'){ should include "projects/dummy-project/serviceAccounts/dummy-acct@dummy-project.iam.gserviceaccount.com" }
end

Use filtering to retrieve a particular service account

google_service_accounts(project: 'chef-inspec-gcp').where(service_account_display_names: /^dummyaccount/).service_account_names.each do |sa_name|
  describe google_service_account(name: sa_name) do
    it { should exist }
  end
end
