API Changes to Support Asset Risk Scoring
/api/2.0/fo/asset/host/action=list
/api/2.0/fo/asset/host/vm/detection/?action=list
/api/2.0/fo/knowledge_base/qvs/?action=list
/api/2.0/fo/report/

Asset Risk Scoring helps users prioritize their vulnerabilities based on the risk to their assets and not just the technical severity. The Asset Risk Scoring feature will be GA with Qualys Cloud Platform 3.12.

We made changes to the Qualys APIs listed below to support new risk scores, includingAsset Risk Score (ARS) for assets, Qualys Detection Score (QDS) for vulnerabilities, and Qualys Vulnerability Score (QVS) for CVEs. Note: These API changes will only be visible when Qualys Cloud Platform 3.12 is available.
