Grapl is a Graph Platform for Detection and Response with a focus on helping Detection Engineers and Incident Responders stop fighting their data and start connecting it. Find out more on our Github.

For now, our documentation primarily focuses on grapl_analyzerlib. grapl_analyzerlib provides a Python interface for end-users to interact with the data in Grapl.


Grapl’s documentation is still a work in progress.

Queries and Views

Queries and Views are the main constructs to work with the graph.

Queries allow you to pull data from the graph that matches a structure.

Views represent an existing graph, which you can expand by pivoting off of its edges.

Let’s query for some processes with the name “svchost”.

from grapl_analyzerlib.prelude import *

# Create a client to talk to Grapl
mclient = MasterGraphClient()

svchosts = (
    .query(mclient)  # Execute the query
)  # type: List[ProcessView]

Now we can pivot around that data. Let’s look at the parent processes of these svchosts:

for svchost in svchosts:
    if svchost.get_parent():


Install grapl_analyzerlib by running:

pip install --user grapl_analyzerlib
