Qualys Cloud Platform 1.5 (CAR) API notification 1

Jeff Leggett

A new release of Qualys Cloud Platform 1.5 (CAR) includes a new API which is targeted for release in October 2022. 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.

What’s New
Custom Assessment and Remediation API

This was released in June apparently, with little to no announcement regarding the APIs. This is the initial set of APIs for the CAR product. The API guide is here: https://www.qualys.com/docs/qualys-car-api-user-guide.pdf

What is Custom Assessment and Remediation
Quickly create custom scripts and controls
Execute custom assessments across the enterprise
Immediately take action anywhere the Qualys Cloud Agent is present

Overview of the CAR product is here: https://www.qualys.com/apps/custom-assessment-remediation/

For the latest 1.5 release we added one new feature:
Enhanced Control on Executing PowerShell Scripts
/sm/v1/scripts/{scriptId}/execute
/sm/v1/scripts/scheduler

Qualys CAR 1.5 adds a new optional parameter to bypass the PowerShell execution policy set on the host; thereby, enabling you to have complete control on executing PowerShell scripts on the hosts via Qualys CAR.
