Available Operations

The examples below show one or two of the available connector operations in use.

Please see the Full Operations Reference at the end of this page for details on all available operations for this connector.

Using the Raw HTTP Request ('Universal Operation')

As of version 1.0, you can effectively create your own operations.

This is a powerful feature that you can use when there is an endpoint in Drata that is not used by any of our operations.

To use this, you will, first of all, need to research the endpoint in the Drata API documentation to find the exact format that Drata will be expecting the endpoint to be passed in.

For example, say that we want to find a list of controls. You would use the Drata API docs to find the relevant endpoint - which in this case is a GET request called: /public/controls.

More details about this endpoint can be found here.

Based on the information provided in the above API call doc, you need to configure the following attributes on your Tray platform:

  • Method: GET

  • URL:

    • Endpoint: /public/controls

  • Query parameters:

    • key: limit

    • value: 10

  • Body Type: none

Once the API call is executed successfully, your output should be similar to what is displayed below:
