Adding a name field to the Upstream Proxy Servers list
Apologies if this is a duplicate, I haven't found a similar request.
I'd like to request a feature which adds a user-configurable name or title field to each entry under Upstream Proxy Servers. I work at a place with a large number of proxies and bastion hosts, and frequently need to switch between them in Burp. The majority are localhost:xxxx, which makes it difficult to remember which port number corresponds to which proxy. A name field describing each proxy would solve this nicely.
Thanks for the suggestion. It’s not a duplicate, although it is quite a niche requirement. We may add this in future, but in the meantime I can suggest a workaround:
In Project options > Connections > Hostname resolution, you can add an entry for a memorable name and use 127.0.0.1 as the IP address. In the upstream proxy configuration you can use this memorable name as the hostname, instead of localhost.
