Invalid string length error when scanning projects

The invalid string length error can occur in the following situations:
  • You scan many projects at once using the --all-projects option in combination with the --json or --json-file-output=<OUTPUT_FILE_PATH> options.
  • You scan a large project using the --json or --json-file-output=<OUTPUT_FILE_PATH> options.
You can use the following workarounds to avoid the invalid string length error.
  • Remove the --json or --json-file-output=<OUTPUT_FILE_PATH> option.
  • If you require the JSON output, try increasing the severity threshold using the --severity-threshold=<SEVERITY_LEVEL> option. This is likely to reduce the number of less critical vulnerabilities reported and thus reduce the size of the JSON file output.
  • If you are scanning multiple projects using the --all-projects option, try removing this option and scanning projects individually.
