--scope-exclude-path issue

it's the part II of the story here: https://github.com/Arachni/arachni/issues/520

So I defined that as you put there, but the scanner somehow didn't pick it up. Am I using it correctly? I was hoping that the scanner would take this pattern while inspecting the path, but it seems that's not the case.

The report is still full of paths like that:

    Can you show me exactly how you're running it please?

    well, I'm adding --scope-exclude-pattern=Images --scope-exclude-pattern=bundles
    next to other arguments to my scan.

    The whole line looks like that variables defined plus the arguments above:
    arachni $TEST_URL --report-save-path=$REPORTS_PARAM_RAW --scope-extend-paths=$TESTS_FOLDER/$URL_BASE"_URLs.txt" --http-user-agent=$User_Agent

    Strange, does it work when using the other way I mentioned? As a regular expression that combines both?

    I thought that's for cases when you have both values in the path. It's working though, thanks!

    No problem, you should lookup regular expressions if you're going to be using those scope options extensively, it'll save you some time.

    Happy scanning. :)
