When a Qualys scan was was being imported to BMC BladeLogic Thread Director, it failed with the following error:
Error: Import could not be completed. The file you selected has an incorrect format and cannot be imported. Please use a valid scan file report.
The xml from Qualys need to be created from scan result not from assets.
Check the scan XML file which is being importanted and look for the DOCTYPE at the top. It should be of type "SCAN SYSTEM" as shown here and not ASSET_DATA_REPORT SYSTEM or anything else:
If the DOCTYPE is not SCAN SYSTEM, the Security team who provided the file should be contacted and requested to provide a file of the correct type. This is done by going to Scans, within Qualys, selecting a scan and downloading the result.
