About Qualys Custom Controls

Library policies provided by Qualys may include a control type called Qualys Custom Control (QCC). This control type quickly provides new controls that are similar to user-defined controls. Once added to your account, if needed, you can copy any QCC to make your own UDC that you can customize to meet your needs.

You can import policies from the library with QCCs into your account and export them to your local system just like UDCs. We ensure that the duplicate QCCs are not added to your controls list by assigning an internal UDC ID. You’ll see the UDC ID when you export a QCC or a library policy that includes a QCC from your account.
