I'm curious if it's possible to load a scan profile from disk, via the arachni REST API?

    Also - I'm curious if it's possible to specify a custom login script as well? Really, any workable method to specify a scan profile and a custom login script via REST API would be useful.

    You can't specify a location from which to load the profile, but the profile itself holds the same options and in the same format serialized with YAML.
    You can just load it and use it for the REST API.

    As for the login script, it'll have to be accessible from the server side and you can set it with:

        "plugins": {
            "login_script": {
                "script": "/path/to/login_script.rb"
