Is there anyway to download the patch report along with the results section
Thats a great question and unfortunately with the existing download formats available we cant see the "results" section.
Now, this is expected behavior and not a limitation. It was designed to be consumed by the patching technologies over an API or as CSV data import.
Technically, its a missing patches report, so just a QID. We will show your the vendor patch ID. The results section even if was available would have been redundant data as it would just prove that the patch was missing.
But if your reporting requires this data, you can have this done by doing a search-list based report with a "technical report template".
Let us know if this helps.
I would like to see the results fieldbe included in the patch report. When you introduce a patching team to the Qualys patch reports, they often times ask exactly how Qualys is determining whether a patch is missing or not. Although we can grab the results field from other reports (like Deb mentioned above), it would be a lot more convenient to include the results as an optional in the patch reports.
Hi, Yes, Even I feel the same. It will be more convenient if we have results section included in the patch report. Which eases us as well as the requisite teams who are responsible to fix the identified gaps / Vulnerabilities.
DJ it would be great if you can help with this requirement. Since this tells how Qualys is determining whether a patch is missing or not. Most of admin teams are requesting for the results to trace how qualys confirms this vulnerability.
Hi all, I would like to join this request because usually the patching team, which receives the patching report from the security team, has to check the false positives so they need the information provided in the Results section.
As a new user, I too was looking for this same functionality, and for the same reasons. Would be great if we could get results into the patch report.
Can you explain "technical report template"? I do not see that as an available option.
I do this correlation manually in CSV downloads in Patch Reports and ScoreCard Patch Reports. At a high level:
