Installing the Qualys VMDR App​

This section provides instructions for installing the Qualys VMDR Sumo Logic App, as well as the descriptions of each of the app dashboards. You can locate and install any app from the App Catalog. Before installing the app, if you want to see a preview of the dashboard click Preview Dashboards.

To install the Qualys VMDR app, follow the steps below:

  1. From the App Catalog, search for the app and select it.
  2. Select the version of the service you're using and click Add to Library.

Version selection is applicable only to a few apps currently. For details, see the Install the Apps from the Library.

  1. Enter the following required fields.
    1. App Name. You can retain the existing name, or enter a name of your choice for the app.
    2. Data Source. Select either of these options for the data source:
    • Choose Source Category and then choose a source category from the list.
    • Select Enter a Custom Data Filter and type in a custom source category that starts with an underscore. For Example: _sourceCategory=MyCategory.

    1. Advanced. Select the Location in Library (the default is the Personal folder in the library), or click New Folder to add a new folder.
  2. Click Add to Library.

Once an app is installed, it will appear in your Personal folder, or other folder that you specified. You can share it with your organization. The panels will begin to fill automatically. It's worth noting that each panel gradually fills with data that matches the time range query and has been received since the panel was created. The results will not be available right away, but with some patience, you will be able to view full graphs and maps.
