Google Cloud Platform Inventory
I just finalized what I believe is the simplest possible way to extract a Google Cloud Platform Inventory (GCP). Unfortunately GCP does not support triggers for functions as Amazon Web Services (AWS) does with Lambdas so we are (at least for now) forced to use cron. Google Customer Support did issue a feature request and hopefully they will deliver at some point a truly serverless scheduler for Cloud Functions. When GCP supports triggers the code should be almost ready as it uses nodejs. BTW working with async/await makes nodejs really attractive for OS related tasks (read DevOps).
