What’s New

WAS API: Added CVSS v3 scores in Findings Output

With this release, we will show CVSS v3 (Common Vulnerability Scoring System) information for the findings of types (Vulnerability and Sensitive Content) in the Search and Get Finding API outputs. Earlier, we were not showing the CVSS information in any of the WAS API outputs. The outputs will show cvssV3 , cvssV3 and cvssV3 information in the outputs.

WAS API: Added New Input Parameters to Create and Delete Web Application API

Now, while deleting a web application, you can specify in the request if you want to remove the web application asset from your subscription also. Earlier, the Delete Web application API when used to delete web applications would delete the web application from WAS but never removed the web application asset from your subscription.

  1. Greetings.

    We have an API development in Python 2.7 and Qualys API 7.0.1. We want to move it to Python 3, as well as, use the most stable version of Qualys API.

    Our code is undergoing debugging processes, but we are not able to move forward because of the Qualys API version. Reading documentation, we found that we can import qualysapi 7.1.0, which is compatible with Qualys API versions 1 and 2. But that procedure did not fix the incompatibility errors.

    I would like to know if you can help me to clarify the scenario and find the solution to my case.
