Script to rename hosts?

Question asked by derekv on Jun 21, 2019

I know you can do renames using the api but before I spin my wheels and write a script, was wondering if anyone already had a script handy they could share?

 

Issue: Multiple cloud agents have the wrong "name" due to the way Qualys creates that name upon initial asset discovery and then never updates it because "we users" can modify the name... I know very few people actually renaming things and I wish Qualys would auto-update the name field but alas, here we are... As such, I need to update the names of like 1000 hosts with the netbios name that is currently being reported.
