WEB application behaviour.

I ran a scan from the web api which failed due to a disk space issue. It had found a number of issues and displayed them but a report could not be generated.

I fixed the space error and rescaned that application. I stopped the scan after a short time and it had found two issues. I exported a report from this scan but it had access to more issues than those listed on the web front end.

I am the curious about the relationship between issues and reports. In the PostgreSQL db I see a reports table with a report object and a issues table with issues. Is the report object only generated at the end of a scan? What is the relationship between issues and reports?

Is there anyway to recover the corrupted scan perhaps pointing issues to a new scan??

    The report object is basically the contents of the AFR file, like you'd get at the end of a CLI scan. That object is later used to generate reports in different formats.

    If the scan crashes though, for whatever reason, the WebUI won't get a chance to retrieve the AFR report, since that happens at the end of the scan.

    Also, unfortunately, there's no way to recover a corrupted scan.
