Counting the requests from extensions

Andrej Simko Jun 07, 2018 12:00PM UTC

Hi, I want to ask - when I use some extenders (e.g. Scan Check Builder), when I remove all the Active scan rules, apart from those coming from extensions, and I only have a single extension running. In the session tracer I can see quite a big traffic, however in the Scanner - Scan queue I only see 2 requests being use. I suppose this is done by active scan natively.
My question is - is it possible to see a real number here? Either by making some adjustments to specific extenders; or fixing this bug within Burp?

Hi Andrej,

With the current version of Burp, it is not possible to see a number that includes extension requests. However we agree this would be useful and will be adding this in a future version.
