Tagging EC2 Instance Based On Their "EC2 Instance Tags"

Is there a way to tag assets within Qualys based on their EC2 Instance Tags? I'm aware of the QID 45150 "Extended attributes for EC2 instance" but that doesn't always work if it's a new asset and has never been scanned. For example, once the API reports a new EC2 instance within Qualys and inputs all of its information into AssetView, it doesn't automatically receive a scan right away. Depending on when the instance was stood up, it may go up to 6 days without a scan to gather QID 45150; therefore never being tagged accordingly.


We rely heavily on asset tagging for many different functions and this is a critical piece that we're not able to use. It appears to me that it's not a feature that is available at the moment but I'm really hoping I'm wrong! Any help would be great!!!! Thank you!
