Hello All, 


I have been associated with Qualys Cloud agent and one of the major problem that I had faced is removal of more than one agent at the same time. The GUI does not have such an option, but Qualys has come up with a ' OR ' based query, which at times does not work well as they also pull up something else. I have made a simple Python script that would take the data of ASSET ID in a txt / csv file. One ASSET ID  per line and when executed will remove the whole.


Pre-Requisite is python 2.7, qualysapi module by paragbaxi and a slight modification on the connector to accommodate the QCA url. The script and the connector is attached. After you install the qualysapi module replace the from the following location. 




I have commented the output. You may change it to see the result with 2/3 ASSET IDs to begin with. pythonconfig.txt needs to be filled with credentials and proxy details.
