Working with Scripts

Qualys CAR has a repository of scripts stored in its database. These scripts can be applied to multiple assets and tags. Apart from the scripts in the CAR repository, you can also use scripts posted on the Qualys GitHub account.

You can share the output of the script execution job with different apps that are registered to get the script output.

The limit for script size and script output size is 500 KB and 1 MB respectively for any asset (Windows and Linux). However, the API Gateway service version that you use must be 2.4.0-7 or later to support 1 MB script output.

A typical CAR workflow includes the following:

- Creating Scripts

- Testing Scripts

- Reviewing and Approving Scripts

- Executing Scripts

- Scheduling Scripts
