Scan selected items in BURP 2.0.18Beta

ILGUIZ LATYPOV Mar 20, 2019 01:44PM UTC

To scan "selected items", i.e. HTTP calls I already went through in a browser and/or SoapUI with using BURP as a Proxy, I have to navigate to the Target tab, right-click the target, select Scan, choose "scan selected items".

This comes in a stark contrast with the Dashboard tab's "New scan" and "New live task" button which appear readily available. They do not offer the "scan selected items" option.

BURP should offer a simple way of initiating a scan of proxied HTTP requests at the same user interface level with starting a new scan. (The latter makes less sense to me as it relies on a yet-to-be-proven headless browser technology whose automatic login sequences still rely on the manually programmed macros).

Just to clarify, you would like a Scan selected items option on the Dashboard tab?

Yes please.

We’re probably not going to add that feature as we’d need to provide a popup that duplicated the Site Map.

You can detach the Target tab (option is on the Window menu) and lay it side-by-side with the Dashboard to get a similar view.
