The 'q' request parameter was replaced with multiple request parameters to provide more flexibility when filtering the Focus View List. Any Get Focus View List requests that contain the 'q' request parameter will not return any results. Requests should use the following parameters:
  • artifact_type: This is the type of Artifact for the Focus View. Types include Protect, Process, File, and NetworkConnection. The artifact type is case-insensitive.
  • created_at: This is the date when the file retrieval was requested. The date format is YYYY-MM-DD. The results are for a 24 hour period. For example, using "&created_at=2019-11-01" will return results that occurred from 2019-11-01:00:00:00 to 2019-11-01:23:59:59.
  • description: This is the human-readable description for the Focus View. The description is case-insensitive.
  • hostname: This is the hostname of the device for which the retrieval was requested. The hostname is case-insensitive.
  • status: This is the status of the Focus View request or result. Statuses include AVAILABLE, DOES_NOT_EXIST, PENDING, REQUEST, RETRY_REQUEST, UNAVAILABLE, and UNKNOWN_DEVICE. The statuses are case-sensitive.
  • page: This is the page number to request. The default is 1.
  • page_size: This is the number of file retrieval records to retrieve per page. The default is 20.
  • sort: This is used to sort by field (adding '-' in front of the value denotes descending order).
