Qualys Agent ID exposed via API

Hello,

 

In our environment we have an agent based deployment of Qualys, and use agentless tracking for scanning.

 

We would like to be able to reference our hosts, via the API framework, using the Qualys Agent ID value which is written locally to the hosts (i.e. in the Windows registry and Linux file system).

 

We would like to be able to query the API framework, using the Qualys Agent ID value to return host details. Can anybody advise if and how this is possible, i.e which API to use and how to filter the returned values based on Qualys Agent ID.

 

I have read various articles relating to the different entity ID's that Qualys assigns to hosts, but I am still unable to work out if this is possible via one of the available API's.

 

Many thanks.
