GSA SER project files

edited April 2022 in Need Help
hi @Sven

can you share which file contains the verified links of a project (.verify? .success?)

also, what is the format of this file?

we're writing some automation utilities that need this information.



  • SvenSven
    *.success is the one you need. The format is line based with 0xFF as separator.

    hey @sven,

    what is the structure of the *.articles?

    and, how can we set a project to be active or inactive via the config files (and not from the app gui) ?

  • SvenSven
    format: title 0x01 summary 0x01 body 0x01 id
    You can not start it by modifying the project file.
  • Thanks
    we want to create this .articles file using our tool.
    what is the id? some random value? checksum? 
  • Just a random hex value like 569ADCE1 works fine. In perl I use 
    sprintf("%04X", rand(0xFFFFFFFF))

    it should be a unique id, so maybe use crc32 or some other hash over the body.
