Scan: Missing tags and parameters in URL

I have to analyze a web-application which is placed on an launchpad, with other apps.

The Launchpad link looks like this:

The app I want to analyze can be called by using a tag "#" with the app name

My basic problem is that when I start the scan, the part of the attached tag will be ignored. <- Only this URL will be scanned.

I searched for similar problems and came across the plugin "Restrict to DOM state ". This adds the needed tag and merged to the needed URL, but I get the following warning and nothing happens, the scan will not continue.

2018-05-09 01:05:48 WARN Selenium [DEPRECATION] :timeout= is deprecated. Use #read_timeout= and #open_timeout= instead.

I use the following command to start the scan:

arachni --http-cookie-jar /root/Schreibtisch/cookies.txt --plugin=restrict_to_dom_state:fragment="app-name"

I found something like this problem, but unfortunately I could not solve my problem.

Maybe my approach is the wrong one to analyze this app. I hope you can help me

Best regards
