A new release of Qualys Cloud Platform 10.6 (PC) includes an updated API which is targeted for release in December 2020. The specific day will differ depending on the platform. See platform release dates on the Qualys Status page. This API notification provides an early preview into the coming API, allowing you to identify use cases that can leverage this updated API.
Update to ImportableControl.xsd Schema
The ImportableControl.xsd schema is used when you import and export user defined controls in XML format. In this schema, we increased the maximum length for database UDC SQL statements from 4000 to 32000 characters. This increase will allow for more complex queries in your database UDCs.
Posture Info API – CSV Format now includes Evidence
Now when you run the Posture Info API with details=All or details=Light and output_format=csv, the CSV output will include the Posture Evidence section. The Posture Evidence section was only showing up in XML output format in previous releases. Now the output will be consistent between these formats.
Addition of Host ID to Compliance Reports
Now the Host ID information will be added to the Authentication Report, Policy Report, and Scorecard Reports in these formats (HTML, HTML New, PDF, XML, CSV).
