A new release of Qualys Cloud Suite, Version 2.19 includes an updated API which is targeted for release in December 2016. 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.


WAF: Web Application API - sslStatus updates

We’ve made these updates to sslStatus in web application API requests.

  • Fixed an issue where sslStatus element incorrectly returned <sslStatus>OK</sslStatus> instead of the correct status in the output from these API requests: GET, SEARCH, CREATE, UPDATE. Now the correct status is returned in all cases.
  • Fixed an issue where sslStatus not updated correctly in web application settings. Now an UPDATE request will update sslStatus to appropriate status value. Note we don’t support certificate expiration date using WAF API, yet this is supported using WAF UI.


Status values for sslStatus have not changed, and we’ve described below.


See the attached release notes for more detail.


WAS: Option Profile API - New form uniqueness option

Forms considered unique are reported separately in your account. We’ll always use form
field names to calculate form uniqueness. When you set the new "includeActionUriInFormID" parameter to true in your option profile, we’ll use form action URI and form field name for determining the uniqueness of a form.


Updated XSD: was_v3.0.xsd. See attached release notes for details.

A new release of Qualys Cloud Suite, version 8.9, includes an API update which is targeted for release in November 2016.

As the Qualys Cloud Platform grows and expands to include more modules with APIs, the need for a consolidated quick reference across all API's has grown.  Today, we're announcing just such a guide, replacing the prior VM/PC v1 and v2 Quick References with the Qualys API Quick Reference that covers ALL Qualys API's going forward.
