CI import customization

When a CI is imported and does not match an existing CI (matching is based on Qualys identifiers, IP, NetBIOS, and DNS name), the default behavior is to create a cmdb_ci record. Modifying the corresponding transform map can change this behavior.

The transform map that controls this behavior is Qualys Host Import (cmdb_ci).

The easiest modification is to change the target table and corresponding field mapping values to map any additional fields that exist.

The more customizable, but complex, approach is to modify the onBefore Transform Script to do additional custom mappings, such as mapping to OS classifications based on the Qualys OS. Be cautious when using this approach not to interfere with basic transform functionality.
