Qualys WAS 4.5 API Release Notification

Blog Post created by fmc on Dec 17, 2015

A new release of Qualys WAS, Version 4.5 which includes API updates and updated report formats, is targeted for release in January. The specific day will differ depending on the platform.  See platform release dates for more information.  The updated APIs for WAS 4.5 give you more ways to integrate your programs and API calls with Web Application Scanning (WAS).


What’s New

  1. Search Scan API - new CANCELED keyword
  2. Condensed CSV output for Web App and Scan Reports


Search Scan API - new CANCELED keyword

The Search Scan API allows you to search for scans that have been canceled. We updated the Criteria “status” to CANCELED, to make it consistent in the WAS application. (In previous releases it was CANCELLED).


Affected API: /qps/rest/3.0/search/was/scan/

Updated XSD: scan.xsd, wassscan.xsd


Condensed CSV output for Web App and Scan Reports

Now you’ll get more condensed versions of your Web Application Reports and Scan Reports in CSV format. The reports display each vulnerability and sensitive content using a single line.
