Quick Inventory

Prowler allows you to execute a quick inventory to extract the number of resources in your provider.


Currently, it is only available for AWS provider.

  • You can use option -i/--quick-inventory to execute it:
    prowler <provider> -i

By default, it extracts resources from all the regions, you could use -f/--filter-region to specify the regions to execute the analysis.

  • This feature specify both the number of resources for each service and for each resource type.

  • Also, it creates by default a CSV and JSON to see detailed information about the resources extracted.

Quick Inventory Example


The inventorying process is done with resourcegroupstaggingapi calls which means that only resources they have or have had tags will appear (except for the IAM and S3 resources which are done with Boto3 API calls).
