You can use the REST API catalog service to identify provisioned items from a given request.

Accessing Links to Provisioned Items

You can access links to provisioned items from a given request by appending /resourceViews to the request details URI. For instance, you can edit the example request URI from as follows:

http://$host/catalog-service/api/consumer/requests/$requestId/resourceViews

In addition to the general information about the provisioned deployment returned in the response, such as its name, description and ID, the response contains additional HATEOAS links.
