Autoscan Insertion points

Tony Aug 09, 2017 05:45PM UTC

I am trying to make an extension for burp that provides request and insertion points for scan via command line. I can perform scan on the request with default insertion points of that is by not passing anything for the insertion pint argument in doAutoScan function. But I want to be able to provide my own insertion points. Could anyone guide me with the same. I wanna know the type of data structure and example values to pass to the doAutoScan function. An example would be great in understanding the concept. Thanks in advance. I am using Python language.
