Search Tokens for AWS Assets

Syntax help displayed in UI for tokens. Click each token to learn more about it.

Use these tokens when searching your AWS EC2 assets on the Assets list.

- Your results may return Terminated instances. It's recommended you include aws.ec2instanceState in your query to reduce the number of results.

- The syntax is different when writing queries for tag rules than when searching assets in the Assets list. Be sure to follow the syntax tips in the drop-down when writing your query.

Supported Boolean Operators

The Qualys Query Language (QQL) supports the following logical or Boolean query operators. Use these operators in your queries to narrow down or broaden your search.

andand

Narrow down your search by using the 'and' operator in your Boolean query. The result contains all the token values that you provide in your query.

Example

asset.status: Enrolled and asset.assetID: 122855563

The asset having the ID 122855563 and with status as Enrolled is returned in the result.

notnot

Narrow down your search by using the 'not' operator in your Boolean query. The result contains all the other values except the one that you specify after 'not' in your query.

Example

not tags.name: Windows

Assets with the Windows tag are excluded from search results.

oror

Broaden your search by using the 'or' operator in your Boolean query. The result contains any of the token values that you provide in your query.

Example

tags.name:Cloud Agent or tags.name:Windows

The assets that have the Cloud Agent tag or the Windows tag are returned in the result.
