Important Usage Notes

This integration allows the user to update host properties and Forescout Lists. To create Forescout properties, which can then be updated using the Demisto-Forescout integration, from the Forescout console, navigate to Tools > Options > Data Exchange (DEX) > CounterACT Web Console > Properties . This is where you create new properties. Make sure to associate the properties with the account you created, and which you used in the configuration parameters of the Forescout integration in Demisto. Lists must also be defined and created in the Forescout console before you can update them using the Demisto-Forescout integration. For more information, reference the Defining and Managing Lists section in the Forescout Administration Guide .

Commands

You can execute these commands from the Demisto CLI, as part of an automation, or in a playbook. After you successfully execute a command, a DBot message appears in the War Room with the command details.

1. Get a list of active endpoints


Retrieves a list of active endpoints.

Base Command

forescout-get-hosts

Input
Argument Name Description Required
rule_ids Filter hosts by those selected by policies or policy sub-rules. Policies and/or rules should be specified by their IDs. To find policy and rule IDs by which you can filter, run the forescout-get-policies command. If multiple policy and/or rule IDs are entered, only hosts that are selected by all of the policies and/or rules specified will be returned. Multiple policy or rule IDs should be separated by a comma. Optional
fields Filter hosts based on host field values. Enter fields with their associated values in the following format, ‘{field_1}={val_1}&{field_2}={val_2} … &{field_n}={val_n}’ where ‘{field_1}’ through ‘{field_n}’ are replaced by actual field names and ‘{val_1}’ through ‘{val_n}’ are replaced by the desired matching values. Note that a list field may be specified with the values separated by commas. Only hosts whose properties match all the specified values will be returned. For a list of potential host fields that may be specified, try executing the ‘forescout-get-hostfields’ command. A composite property may also be specified. If entered in the format where all the field-value pairs are in a single set of square brackets, for example, ‘{composite_prop}=[{field_1},{val_1},…,{field_n},{val_n}]’ then only hosts for which the specified composite property’s fields all match the values entered will be returned. If entered in the format, ‘{composite_prop}=[{field_1},{val}_1],…,[{field_n},{val_n}]’ where each field-value pair is enclosed in its own set of brackets, then hosts for which the composite property contains any of the field-values specified will be returned. Note that for composite properties, sub-fields should be entered as their internal representation in Forescout. To find internal representation for a composite property’s sub-fields try executing ‘forescout-get-host’ command with the host specified in the ‘identifier’ argument and the name of the composite property entered in the ‘fields’ argument of the command. Optional

2. Get an index of host fields


Retrieves an index of Forescout host fields that match the specified criteria.

Base Command

forescout-get-host-fields

Input
Argument Name Description Required
search_in Each host field has three searchable parts, the ‘name’, ‘label’, and ‘description’. By default only the ‘name’ will be searched. If you want to expand the search to include the description, you would enter ‘name,description’ for this argument. Optional
case_sensitive Determines whether to match the case of the entered search term. Optional
match_exactly Determines whether the search term is matched against the entirety of the potential host field instead of just seeing whether the host field contains the search term. Optional
search_term The term to filter host fields by. By default, the search will be case insensitive and checked to see if a host field contains the search term unless otherwise specified in the ‘case_sensitive’ and ‘match_exactly’ arguments respectively. Optional
host_field_type Limit the search to host fields whose values are of a certain type. For example, to limit the search to host properties whose values are either boolean, ip or a date enter ‘boolean,ip,date’. Optional

5. Update host fields


Update a host’s field. Note that if a List field or Composite field has not been defined in Forescout to ‘Aggregate new values from each update’ that performing an update operation on a field will overwrite previous data written to that field.

Base Command

forescout-update-host-fields

Input
Argument Name Description Required
update_type The type of update to perform on a host field. Optional
host_ip The IP address of the target host. Required if ‘updated_type’ is ‘update’ or ‘delete’. Required
field Enter the the name of the field to update. Composite fields should be updated using the ‘fields_json’ command argument. Optional
value Value to be assigned to the field specified in the ‘field’ argument. If the value is a list of items, then items should be separated using a comma. Optional
fields_json One may perform multiple field-value assignments using this command argument. The argument should be entered in valid JSON format. This argument is useful for setting composite fields although other fields may be entered as well. For example, ‘{“Example_Composite”: [{“Shape”: “Triangle”, “Color”: “Beige”}, {“Shape”: “Square”, “Color”: “Violet”}], “String_Field”: “Example”}’ where ‘Example_Composite’ is the name of the Composite field in Forescout and ‘Shape’ and ‘Color’ are sub fields. In the example, ‘String_Field’ is a regular host field of type string whose value will be assigned ‘Example’. If the composite field was defined in Forescout as an aggregate property then additional records will be appended, otherwise they will be overwritten. Optional

Context Output

There is no context output for this command.

Command Example
forescout-update-host-fields host_ip=192.168.1.212 field=fsapi_DemistoTest value="Testing new Arguments" fields_json={“fsapi_demisto_composite”:
