Ability to add optional custom header to curl command for POST API to support API Gateway requirements for Scan results submittal.

In our Organization, architecturally, we require our APIs to be exposed through our API Gateway especially when crossing environments or domains. Our API Gateway requires an API key, generally exposed through a custom header

-H "X-API-key: [alpha_numeric_key_value]"

Note, the API Gateway removes this header when forwarding on to the ILMT Server.

    Hello, thank you for reaching out on this! Currently LMT Disconnected Scanner has an option to pass additional parameters to curl command that it runs to upload scan results to the server. It is documented here:

    Please let us know if this option can be used to pass the necessary header information.

    Alternative approach could be to use the LMT Server REST API for uploading scan results manually with custom script, not the one which Disconnected Scanner embedds. Scan resuylts are just zip files which are collected in the output directory. These are never overwritten and can be uploaded in bulk way once a day of with any frequency (not less frequently than once a week). So, you can run your own curl commands to upload them from each endpoint or collect the outputs from multiple endpoints on a single machine and upload from there. The API on the LMT Server side for uploading results is documented here:

    The scan results can be uploaded also with sftp by just copying to the LMT Server disconnected datasource directory.

    But, hoping that the additional parameter from the first link above will help - please confirm. You can also reach me at my personal email address to discuss details.
