Blog Post created by Jeff Leggett Employee on Apr 4, 2019

A new release of Qualys Cloud Platform v1.8 (Cloudview) includes an updated API which is targeted for release in April 2019. 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
CloudView API URLs updated
With the CloudView 1.8, the URLs for all the CLoudView REST APIs are updated. The API URLs that currently use 1.5 will be replaced with v1 across all the CloudView API URLs. Additionally, we have also updated the "lastsynch" to "lastSyncedOn" in the response.


AWS API Updates
We have now added a new element named isPortalConnector. The new element is a boolean flag to indicate whether the AWS connector is also created in Portal module or not (Asset View). If not, you can set this element to true and automatically create the same connector in AssetView module. However, if the connector is created in AssetView as well, then the authentication information associated with the connector is linked to CloudView as well. If you update the authentication information for the connector in AssetView, it will automatically reflect in CloudView as well.
