Qualys connector

This connector can be run in the cloud or using an on-premises connector server.

The Qualys connector gathers data about patches, devices, and vulnerabilities from a Qualys server. It uses the Qualys API server URL to gather the information.

For information about what data is imported and how it is mapped, see Mapping (below).


A Qualys connector has the following options:

  • Connector name: A name for the connector.
  • Connector server name: The name of the connector server that this connector is associated with. When running the connector in the cloud, this server needs to be the Cloud option in the list.

    Each connector can only be associated with one connector server. If you added this connector to a specific connector server (on the Connectors > Connector Servers page), this field will be populated for you. Otherwise, you can select the server from the list.
  • Qualys URL or server name: The API server URL for your Qualys account. For information on how to find the API Server URL, see the Qualys API help.
  • Username and Password: Credentials to access Qualys. The account must be an admin account with access to REST APIs.
  • Devices
    • Types: Type filters limit the import to specific device types. Click in the filters area to view the list of predefined filters. Add a new value by typing it in this area and pressing Enter.
    • Tags: Tag filters limit the import to specific devices. Tags are created and maintained within Qualys. Add a new value by typing it in this area and pressing Enter.
  • Repeats: How often the connector should gather data.
  • Start time: The time of day the connector should start running. To minimize the impact on your network and applications, we recommend that connectors generally run at night or on weekends.
  • Active: Whether the connector is active or not. While the connector is active, it runs according to the schedule you create. If you clear the check box, the connector is inactive and will not gather data until the check box is enabled again and the connector is saved.

For details on configuring or using connectors, see Setting up connectors.
