Set the integration execution user

If the default System Administrator account is removed or disabled, a run-as user must be specified.

Before you begin

Role required: sn_vul_qualys.admin

About this task

The Qualys integrations are executed as extensions of sysauto_script. There is a configured run-as user for each integration record. The default value for this user is System Administrator.

If you removed or disabled the default System Administrator account, the run-as values for each integration record must be changed to another user with administrative privileges. This user needs access to data sources, transform maps, and vulnerability data.
Note: Failing to set the run-as user orphans data retrieval attachments on the data source records every time the integration runs. Multiple attachments are stored on the data source, increasing processing time and resulting in inconsistent transform results.


  1. Navigate to Vulnerability > Administration > Primary Integrations.
  2. Click the gear icon gear icon at the top left of the list.
  3. In the Personalize List Columns dialog box, add the Run as field to the list.
  4. Click OK.
  5. For each of the Qualys integrations listed, change the Run as user to another user (one with admin privileges) to run the integrations.
  6. Repeat steps 1 through 4 for Supporting Integrations.
