We recently updated our API and wanted to let you know about it.
For those of you unfamiliar with the Risk I/O API, it can be used to automate many functions of Risk I/O including the ability to add vulnerabilities from the few scanners Risk I/O doesn’t directly support, information gleaned from manual assessments, data integration between SIEM, GRC and asset management, as well as update both your vulnerability and asset information directly. The RESTful API is very straightforward to use, only requiring a Risk I/O API key and target URL.
Even if you haven’t used our API in the past, we think you’ll really appreciate the improvements we have made. In addition to its previous functionality, with the new API you can now:
- Edit and delete vulnerabilities
- Edit assets including priority scores and tags
- Make API calls via http token-based authentication
- View your data in JSON format
We’ve put together some extensive documentation on the API that guides you through everything from authentication to asset tagging. You can access it at risk.io/api.
As we continue to explore additional ways to improve the API, we would appreciate and value any feedback you have. You can send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
