Appliance Import

The Qualys Appliance Transform map is used to transform Qualys Appliance data into appliance records. This is used to update the appliance records that would initially be created from the Asset Group Import. Changes to this transform alter how appliance records are updated with appliance details.

To access this transform map, navigate to Qualys Vulnerability Integration > Import Set Tables > Appliance Import.

The table shows the fields currently being transformed.
