What's new
Dynamic Search List API - Support for CPE Type /api/2.0/fo/qid/search_list/dynamic/
The Dynamic Search List API lets you create/update dynamic search lists and get information about them. We’ve added API support for CPE “part” values (Operating System, Application, Hardware) in dynamic search lists, allowing you to target specific vulnerabilities for sending to the appropriate remediation teams.


Asset Group List Output - DTD Change
The Asset Group List Output DTD is used when you list the asset groups in your account. We’ve made several changes to this DTD.


Compliance Authentication Report - DTD Change /api/2.0/fo/report with action=fetch
The Compliance Authentication Report DTD is used when you download a saved authentication report from your account. We’ve made updates to this DTD to add missing elements that resulted in validation errors.
