What's new
New InformixDB Auth records /api/2.0/fo/auth/informixdb/
InformixDB authentication is now supported for compliance scans. The new InformixDB Authentication API (api/2.0/fo/auth/informixdb/) lets you list, create, update and delete InformixDB authentication records. User permissions for this API are the same as other authentication record APIs. Note that the API supports authentication record creation only for InformixDB installed on Unix.


Scan EC2 Assets for Certificate Information
You can now collect certificate information from EC2 assets using EC2 CertView scans. We added a new input parameter (scan_type=ec2certview) to scheduled/scan and /scan APIs.
