Cortex XDR unmanaged assets search with XQL

L4 Transporter

Hello Everyone,


I have a following question: Since XDR agents are able to detect unmanaged assets in their network (without Broker VM), how can I get that information via XQL ? 

Any information will be usefully.

Thank you

Hi @anikolov 


For your use case to detect unmanaged assets in network (without Broker VM), if those endpoints are domain joined you can leverage the Cloud Identity Engine dataset (pan_dss_raw) to cross-reference the data with endpoints data to identify assets which are a part of the organization domain but are not in the endpoints dataset.


XQL query for reference: 


dataset = pan_dss_raw
| fields name,ou,os,type
| filter type= "computer"
| dedup name
| filter name not in (dataset=endpoints | alter hostname = lowercase(endpoint_name) | fields hostname )


Hope this helps!
