QualysGuard WAS 2.3 includes two enhancements to the API services which were first made available in the 2.2 release. This notification provides an early preview of these enhancements.
The WAS Scan API provides a suite of API functions for managing web application scans across the enterprise. The API enables subscribers to launch new scans, list, view and delete scans. The following enhancements have been made in WAS 2.3:
- Launch a new scan: with WAS 2.3, the option profile element is not required to launch a scan when the target web application has a default option profile defined.
The WAS Schedule API provides a suite of API functions for managing web application scan schedules across the enterprise. The API enables subscribers to create, update and delete scan schedules. The following enhancements have been made in WAS 2.3:
- Download schedules in iCal format
Full details regarding these updates will be available in the WAS API User Guide on the day of the release.
Target for the release of WAS 2.3 API enhancements on the EU platform is May, 2012.
