Data retrieval limitations

By default, there are no restrictions on how data is retrieved from Qualys. Many records can be related to low severity vulnerabilities that a customer is not willing to remediate using their vulnerability response process. Updating the corresponding REST message/method parameters can modify this behavior.

The REST message/method responsible for this update is Qualys Host Detection – Standard/post. To update the values, add a new HTTP Query Parameter to the post method with the following values:
  • Name: severities
  • Value: 3-5 (or whatever appropriate severities are desired)
