    Arachni now has a dedicated reporter utility, you'll need to pass the generated AFR file to arachni_reporter to create reports in XML.

    Hi Tasos,

    Thank you for the prompt response and i tried it it works pretty well too thanks a bunch.

    now what i do is

    1. arachni
      I will keep waiting to see if there is a AFR file that gets generated

      After say 30 mins to one hour, i see a AFR file, i have to use this

    2. arachni_reporter --report=xml:outfile=/report/ABCD.xml

    to create an xml

    My question is, is there a way to combine both of it to automatically create an XML file without running the reporter as a new command ?

    also, Is there a way for me to know that the scan is completed, and instead of keep looking for the AFR file to start the step 2.

    Thanks a bunch in advance u and Zapotek...

    You need to use && instead of |.
