Nexpose (Rapid 7)

Rapid 7 Nexpose CLI Integration

This CLI is able to sync asset, scans and vulnerabilities from a folder containing Rapid7 Nexpose files.

  • nexpose - Import a folder of Nexpose files and sync assets, vulnerabilities and scans to RegScale.

Nexpose Processing Workflow

The CLI will process each Nexpose file and load assets, vulnerabilities and scans to RegScale.

  • import_nexpose Import Nexpose scans and assets to RegScale
Required parameters
  • regscale_ssp_id The ID number from RegScale of the System Security Plan, required.

  • folder_path The full folder path where the Rapid7 Nexpose files are located.

Additional Information:

The CLI provides detailed logging throughout the process to indicate progress and to provide troubleshooting in case of issues.


Prisma and Nexpose files have the exact same file format and header information, so the CLI will not be able to discern differences. Please separate these file formats within your pipeline.

Below are the expected columns of a Nexpose file:

  • IP Address
  • Hostname
  • OS
  • Vulnerability Title
  • Vulnerability ID
  • CVSSv2 Score
  • CVSSv3 Score
  • Description
  • Proof
  • Solution
  • CVEs

Example Commands

Import Nexpose scans to SSP #16 in RegScale using the files located in the nexpose_scans folder.

  • regscale nexpose import_nexpose --regscale_ssp_id 16 --folder_path /home/benjie/Sync/nexpose_scans
