Appendix: Script-Based UDCs

The new script-based user-defined controls (UDCs) in Qualys PC lets you evaluate data on the basis of the results fetched by the script-based UDCs, thereby, enabling you to leverage the power of Policy Compliance-Script Manager integration.

Script-based UDCs are custom controls that you create and associate with scripts that are already created in Qualys Script Manager (SM). A script-based UDC contains the expected value for a particular control, while the script fetches the actual value found in the target assets. The two values are compared as a part of the policy evaluation and the result is generated as Pass, Fail, or Error.

You can create script-based UDCs for Qualys PC assets on Windows and Unix platforms.
