Hello All,

 

If you've been using the knowledgebase_download.php API v1, you should check out the new "knowledge_base" API v2.

You can:

  • Do a differential update : no need anymore to download everyday the 30MB+, you can only get the new or updated QIDs !

Example: https://qualysapi.qualys.com/api/2.0/fo/knowledge_base/vuln/?action=list&details=All&last_modified_after=2011-09-01

  • Get addional details about the vulnerabilities such as the full CVSS metrics and sub-metrics, the published date and type of discovery (list of the updates below)
