Output Options and Recommendations

Safety can output the result of a vulnerability scan to a variety of different output formats.

The default output is screen output, which prints the scan to the command line screen.

Use the --output argument to configure which output format Safety generates. The --output command line argument can be set to the following values: screen, json, html, spdx, spdx@2.2, spdx@2.3, none.

Screen and text output

--output screen (default) will print the results to the screen

Results can be easily saved to a text file. For example:

safety scan --output screen > results.txt

For more detailed output, add the --detailed-output flag
