Good day Qualys Community,
Does anyone knows how to obtain the date when the Qualys agent is installed on a machine? I haven´t figured if this is possible.
Thanks for the support!!
Yes, this information can be seen within the Asset Details window in the Cloud Agent or AssetView modules. The first tab "Asset Summary" has a field for "Created On:" which will give the date that the asset was first detected. If this was with the Cloud Agent, that date will be the date the Agent was installed.
Thanks for your reply Aaron, The situation is that Qualys have been identified before from Qualys, since we were performing Authenticated scans on the network, so know that we are transitioning to Agents, I was wondering on how to get this information, since the "First detected" date was because of the scheduled scans, not because of the Qualys Agent.
It's not easily parsed for a large number of systems, but if you go into the IG QID for Installed Applications Enumerated, and search the results for Qualys Cloud Agent you will see the date the application was installed. It appears that date does not change when the agent auto-updates so it should be reliable. This would work for 1 or 2 devices. If you're looking to do this for a large volume though you'll probably want to run a report and parse the data out programatically.
Do you know the QID number that I should use?
