In order to get Security Port information using Trusted Advisor in AWS, the following steps need to be followed:

  1. Create a get security ports request with the maximum number of results to be fetched.
  2. Call the API with the securityPortsRequest parameter using the Trusted Advisor client to get the security port details.
  3. Fetch the port ID from the API response and display it to the user.
  4. In the event that any exception occurs while interacting with the AWS Trusted Advisor service, the TrustedAdvisorException handles it and publishes the error. Here is an example.
import java.util.List;
public class GetSecurityPorts {
    public static void getSecurityPorts(TrustedAdvisorClient advisorClient) {
        try {
        	// Creates and initializes get security ports request object       
            GetSecurityPortsRequest securityPortsRequest = GetSecurityPortsRequest.builder()
            // Sends the request to getSecurityPorts and print the port ID
            GetSecurityPortsResponse response = advisorClient.getSecurityPorts(securityPortsRequest);
            List<String> ports = response.securityPorts();
            for (String port: ports) {
                System.out.println("The Security port ID is  "+port);
        } catch (TrustedAdvisorException e) {

The generated code retrieves the security port details using the Trusted Advisor client. The getSecurityPorts API takes the maximum number of results to be fetched in a single call as an input parameter and provides a list of security port identifiers. The securityPorts method fetches the port ID list from the API response. The TrustedAdvisorException handles the exception that occurs while fetching the port details and publishes the error message on the console.
