Array of objects stored in json file?

I'm trying to use classes and a json file instead of just a big set of
nested hashes. The desired end state is a json file that I can load,
update, and use to track vulnerabilities. When I look at the file now it's
just the object ids, I think, which will not be the same if I use a
different script to load the data.

What am I missing? Is an array of objects the way to handle this?

Thanks!

What about using YAML Store instead?

I'm trying to move to MongoDB at some point in time, hence the JSON.

You need to implement the to_json method for you custom class. Check
this answer from stackoverflow:

So, add something like this in your class:

class Vuln

attr_accessor :vid, :task, :title
def initialize(vid, task, title)
   @vid = vid
   @task = task
   @title = title
end

  def to_json *a
    {"vid" =>@vid, "task"=>@task, "title"=>@title}.to_json(*a)
  end

end

Then you can do:

[Vuln.new(1234, 'audit', "Some thing or other."), Vuln.new(2345,
'audit', "Some other thing or other.")].to_json
=> "[{\"vid\":1234,\"task\":\"audit\",\"title\":\"Some thing or
other.\"},{\"vid\":2345,\"task\":\"audit\",\"title\":\"Some other
thing or other.\"}]"

Hope this helps,

Jesus.
